Sherborne Avenue, Cyncoed, City of Cardiff, CF23 6SJ, Tel: 0292075
Cardiff Golf Club, founded in 1922, is an 18 hole, 6,000 yard parkland course
with a variety of mature trees which requires accurate tee shots. The course
is well bunkered and an added hazard is a small stream meandering through
the course. Playing the course is a most pleasurable experience, where it
is difficult to imagine that you are in the environs of Wales's largest
and Capital city. Check out the club's website pictures to see that it makes
a great location for a golf break in Cardiff. Visitors with handicap certificates
are welcome, but please check tee availability with the Secretary beforehand.
Golf Societies are also welcome by prior arrangement, although they are
normally permitted on Fridays only.

- Gwent and South Glamorgan. The course is laid out in the shape of a clover
leaf and provides one of the best tests of golf in South Wales. Visitors
and Societies are welcome by prior arrangement.
Llantwit Road, Creigiau, City of Cardiff, CF15 9NN, Tel : 029 2089
Established in 1922 Creigiau GC was a 9 hole course. Now after extensive
modification and changes it is a 6063 yard 18 hole parkland course.
The Club is approx. 7 miles from the centre of Cardiff and if the course
is only half as attractive as the pictures on the otherwise sparse website
it must be worth a visit. Visitors, with handicap certificates, are welcome
by prior arrangement.
