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.

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.

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. \\
