What the club says: Aberdare Golf Club was founded in 1921 as a Parkland course at Abernant, which is about a mile from the centre of Aberdare. This picturesque 18-hole golf course is famous for its mature Oak trees and was also a home club for one of Britains most famous golfers Mr Dai Rees, who was former Ryder Cup Captain.

Well placed trees make for tough course

Def need to be accurate off the tees with tree lined fairways and well placed trees to make some holes even tougher.

Some greens drop off massively while others are at the top of big slopes making accuracy towards the greens, and club selection, important as well.

The club are frightened to cut the greens any shorter, for fear of being burnt by the sun, seed heads growing. This is making putting a bit of a lottery as you need to smash it at the hole, they are so slow. this is taking consideration of borrows and breaks out of your thinking!!!, frustrating. otherwise the course isin super condition.

Course was well presented, lots of blind shots on the outward 9. A few more marker poles would have been helpful. Greens true but very slow. Cracking views from course and clubhouse.

The course itself was very good with a range of different holes which forced you to giv real thought to every shot. Unfortunately, the greens were in really poor condition on this day

The course was well presented although following days of heavy rain some of the greens were quite wet and there were wet patches on some of the fairways. Crossing is an issue on this course.

Clubhouse and new pro shop are good.Ample portions of good golfing fayre were available and the bar staff were very friendly.

The young pro was very attentive and eager to provide for all our society needs.

The visit was only marred by the hostile attitude of a few senior members.
