Llantrisant & Pontyclun Golf Club
- 5418 Yds
The Llantrisant & Pontyclun Golf Club, an 18 hole course, is parkland bordered to the north by the Ely river which adds a picturesque backdrop to 3 of the greens. Wild fowl are attracted by the ponds on the lower part of the course and coupled with the views of forest and mountain the visitor is presented with the one of the most delightful scenarios in Welsh golf. The river had always been a feature of the course marking the boundary of old 4th hole but with the advent of 18 holes 2 extra greens were able to use the river as a backdrop. The course is both attractive and challenging as witnessed by the fact that the course record stand at 1 under the Standard Scratch.Although under 6000 yards the course presents a challenge to the most ardent golfer in that the greens are small and the fairways narrow. The club has always been proud of its reputation for welcoming visitors born out by the number that return every year.
