What the club says: Previously known as Mountain Lakes, Castell Heights is now a 9 hole course and was designed to challenging championship standards and was first played in 1988.
Set on the top of Caerphilly Mountain, it has been laid out to enhance your appreciation of the outstanding mountain views and on a fine clear day there is no better view locally.

Good 9Hole course.

The state of the greens let the course down.

Castle Heights

Fairways recently cut to a decent length, the greens are very bobbly/a little poor condition due to the hot weather.
Overall enjoyed the round and setting.
Speed of play could have been better. A lot of amateur youngsters who are there for just a knock around, still didn't affect our fun.

(Round played: Jun 2015 - Score: 99 Handicap: 25.6)Castell heights is the only course at this venue. The new owners have improved the condition of the course.The sand in the bunkers shames many prestige courses in the area.
Don't be put of that this is predominantly pay and play.There are a good variety of holes and you play the course twice from the same tees. Limited clubhouse facilities and no pro shop.

Was quite impressed with this course. Beautiful scenery, and a pleasant walk around. It\'s well maintained and a lot of people were in the fields next to it talking a walk round! \There\'s some sort of adventure playground on the site as well, which means I can drop the wife and kids there next time while I play a round! \Well worth £10. \\

Only a 9 hole course now for £10. They've built a children's play area, Segway riding, horse riding, high ropes and more stuff coming soon so take the family. The course was in good nick. On a couple of holes it was difficult to see where to go as very wide fairways on a couple of holes and couldn't see the pin from the tee. Being built where it is there's big variances in heights on certain holes Worth a visit and ill definately be visiting again. The website is being built and should be up soon I think. www.castellheightsgolf.co.uk

They have a 9 hole municipal course called "Castle Heights" on the same site. It is an ideal course for those like myself who are just starting out in golf.

£9.00 per round and there is always a tee time available.
