What the club says: Cottrell Park is set in historic parkland with amazing views across the Vale of Glamorgan, Cottrell is a golfers haven benefiting from two exceptional championship courses, The Mackintosh and The Button Gwinnett. Both courses are maintained to a very high standard and offer a different challenge. The Mackintosh course is longer and more of a traditional parkland course whilst the Button Gwinnett is shorter but more challenging as you must avoid several water hazards, well placed bunkers and dog-leg bends.
The practice facilities include a ten bay undercover driving range, two state-of-the-art surround sport simulators, three putting greens, one chipping area and practice fairway. The golf service department is well stocked with golf accessories, clothing and refreshments for your game.
There is a large supply of pull trolleys & electric trolleys available to hire as well as golf buggies.
On-site accommodation is available in the form of a converted Coach house. Two apartments are available to hire for visiting golf parties or family breaks. Each apartment can sleep up to 8 persons sharing amenities. Contact the club for more information and for a quote.

The Greens and Fairways were dry considering the amount of rain and other courses in the area that were closed. Course played nic, some boggy area's but that was to be expected. Groups of members ahead of us, unfortunately, they would not let anybody through despite at one point losing two holes to the group in front. This resulted in waiting on every tee and in some cases two groups waiting on tees due to the slow play of others.

Excellent golf complex with 2 courses

Cottrell park is a fantastic golf club just outside of cardiff on the a48. Theres 2 very different courses, the macintosh is longer & a bit more open where as the button is slightly shorter but has more hazards & is a tighter course, something for everyone. Staff are very helpful and friendly go check out the website as theres alot more to see. 9/10

Reviewed Jun 18 2017 by Eddie M - rated 3 out of 5
There are two courses, and I played them both. The Button is the shorter course, but an interesting layout with some good holes. The condition of the course is good and it is not a busy course. The Mackintosh is the longer, tougher course, it has some good holes, but there are a lot of blind shots (off the tee and second shots). Also the condition was not as good as the Button particularly the tees which looked heavily used. The final problem is the Mackintosh is a much busier course and consequently the pace of play was poor. The green fee is cheaper for the Button and this is better value as well as being cheaper. There are good facilities in the clubhouse and plenty of space.
