What the club says: Cardiff Golf Club, founded in 1922, is a 6,000 yard parkland course with a variety of mature trees which requires accurate tee shots and coupled with the small to medium size greens demands a high standard of approach shots.

Most Helpful Review

My first visit in the middle of August 2014, and just missed the ideal time with a roll up going off the 1st, so allowed to play off the 11th instead - fantastic, had a wonderful clear round. One of Cardiffs premier clubs and still quite traditional with separate spike bar downstairs whilst main (members) bars etc upstairs, with a slightly off putting sign on door "Members & visitors bar" - slight feeling though of it being a members only bar! Standing on the 1st, you are immedately aware that this is not a typical flat parkland track with a lovely longish downhill par 4 with trees a plenty on both sides - first shot of the day, hmmm, overlooked by the clubhouse. Nice par 3 2nd leads to a downhill but tough long par 4 where too far right and you will be blocked out by a huge tree, oh and a stream crossing!. By now you will have realised that this is truly a "well tree lined course" and you have to be straight all the time, although saying that, more often than not, the fairways are generous. Only in the deepest woods is there uncontrolled rough, sides of fairways being very well managed and you shouldn't have any Lost ball problems. The 4th is a genuine par 5 with the smallish green cut out of the embankment to the right, and then to a lovely well protected par 3, short but dangerous. 6th is a good S/I one with a testing drive and a stream crossing diagonally, whilst 7 is also pretty narrow with the stream in play again.Then to the 8th, a continueing dog left left par 5, where for us non-cat 1 types is truthfully iron iron iron hope and putt.......jungle all the way tee to green on right. Good longer par 3 9th and then back to back par 5's, the second of which (11th), although downhill, has the added problem of a stream immediately in front of the green. The 12 is a straightforward par 3 although an unseen "pot pond" lies front left, so avoid!. 13 is a long par 4 curving right round the trees, and then to a short but very narrow par 4 14th - accuracy paramount here with another stream in front of the green whilst 15 is a tough long dog leg right par 4. Par 3 16th, dog leg 17 and then a fine finale, a short par 3 straight back up to the club house - real fun on a competition day with members hanging out and watching your every move. All in all, an excellent moderate walking tree lined course which was presented in absolute superb condition on my visit, the trees being some of the most stunning Ive seen on a course and all in all, very friendly, and all round, certainly a venue to visit if in the area - Aug 25 2014
