St Mellons Golf Club, Golf Courses Cardiff, City of Cardiff - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


, Cardiff City_of_Cardiff Wales
First opened in 1936, St Mellons is a lovely parkland course on the eastern edge of the bustling Capital city of Cardiff. It is unique in that it straddles two counties - Gwent and South Glamorgan - but because the Clubhouse is in Gwent it is to that Union that the Club belongs. The course is laid out in the shape of a clover leaf and provides one of the best tests of golf in South Wales. The course provides the visitor with a pleasant walk from the first testing par four through two copses and so on through seventeen other very individualistic holes. The third, a par three, carries the name 'Cottons Choice'. This after the comment made by the late, great Henry Cotton who rated this hole very highly. The course comprises 3 par fives; 5 par threes and 10 par fours. The par threes will make or break your card but the two finishing holes are absolutely superb par fours that will make you smile or cry, if you have a good card going but holes that you will long remember.
