Builth Wells Golf Club was founded in 1923 originally as a nine hole course and remained this way until 1986 when it became 18 holes. The course is set in the quiet, picturesque Mid Wales countryside and was the final resting place for the Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd and his 3000 strong army in 1282. Those who honour the memory of Llywelyn's soldiers are grateful that their final resting place has become a golf course and that the natural beauty of the area has been carefully preserved. The golf course and scenery are stunning, match this with smooth, true putting surfaces and it is easy to see why the course is highly regarded.
This 18 hole parkland course is easily accessible from major cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham as well as from anywhere in the Midlands. By means of its central location it is also very accessible from North & South Wales.
