town of Penarth on the outskirts of Cardiff. It is the second oldest golf
club in South Wales. Although being near the sea, the Glamorganshire is
not a links, but a parkland course on undulating ground on the edge of what
are now Cosmeston Lakes. It was at the Glamorganshire Golf Club that the
Stableford scoring system was first tried by its creator, Dr. Frank Stableford
in September 1898,
