Max Boyce’s club is a picturesque course overlooking the Vale of Neath and the Brecon Beacons National ParkC. The course is described as a mix of parkland and woodland, so large mature trees are a very prominent feature on most holes. This hilltop course started as a 9 hole and is now an 18 hole course at par 71, measuring in at just under 6,100 yards.
Glyn Neath Golf Club is location within the Brecon Beacons National Park and provides some impressive views of the surrounding mountains and vales. Although this suggests a hilly nature, the course is in fact reasonably flat with some moderate undulations contained within.

Four new holes have been introduced recently to spruce up the course, adding 500 yards. The four old holes being added to a Junior Academy Development Course. There are entertaining large fish to greet players on the 16th tee, in one of several small lakes.
