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.

Poor

I knows it's the winter but greens were shocking, just patches of mud. Winter mats need renewing as there are undulations under your feet for right handed golfers. Only play here as friend a member otherwise would avoid.
Very Poor

Mmmm

Condition of the greens are very very poor, this a is pay as you play course and is generally open to all. This means there is little or no etiquette when it comes to replacing divots or repairing pitch marks on greens so the green keepers face and up hill battle. The course layout is good for a nine hole course with small well place greens. The course takes about 90 mins to play so is ideal on my way home, when I have more time Bryn Meadows is just up the road and is a far better course at approx ?25 or so for 18 holes so a similar cost per hole...

Greens Messy

Fairways as expected this time of year, but greens not in good shape
No practice facility at all.
I only play in the winter here as its on the way home, 9 holes only takes 1.5 hours

Shocking

I know it's been wet but the course is in shocking condition. The fairways are cut too short leaving patches of mud. The greens are not much better. I mentioned that I may play again purely because it's a quick 9 holes on the way home but at ?12 it's not really value for money, I?d rather pay ?20+ at Bryn Meadows and walk off when it gets dark....so maybe won't play again until next summer....

First game after lockdown, only difference is that you had to wait to be called to first tee.

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.
