Cottrell Park 

A 36 hole location in South Wales, easy to find and totally tailor-made for society trips. Cottrell Park Golf Resort offers rivaled scenery located within the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, just on the outskirts of the centre of Cardiff, and very easily reached from the M4.

Whatever your level of skill and experience, the Mackintosh and Button Gwinnett courses have something to offer you. Wales Golf Club of the Year in 2015.

A pair of holiday apartments onsite gives you the option of extending your break.

Cottrell Park

Mackintosh Course – 6,361 yards Par 72 

Both layouts were designed to Championship standard and both have equal amounts of attention lavished on them.

Yet The Mackintosh probably receives the higher regard, a gently undulating parkland layout notable in looks for its collection of 300-year-old mature trees that dominate the landscape.

Some of them sit in the middle of the fairways of some of these holes requiring some good course management and club selection. It’s a theme that continues all the way around, with a good few dog legs to conquer and a few blind shots out there too.

The greens are quite superb as well, very true and they do reward.

Favourite holes

The downhill and scenic short eighth, a lottery for club selection if windy. Plus the 10th, a blind tee shot view yet find the top of the bank and 300 yards is possible, at the time in 2018 it became the new home of the editor’s longest drive of the year!

Button Gwinnett Course – 6,145 yards Par 71

The Button is a little different, open and exposed with lakes and water featuring on no less than 13 holes.

It’s set on the other side of the club and offers many a view, over to the Bristol Channel early doors and then towards the close, you’re treated to a lovely panoramic of The Vale of Glamorgan.

Two particular areas of attention, the close of the outward half is something of a water world, with a new island green under construction for the eighth, and a large pond in front of the short ninth.

Play and Stay

Take a break from the world in one of the two holiday apartments onsite. Hidden within peaceful parkland, and offering modern opulence for that extra special ‘holiday’ feeling.

Enjoy the space and luxury the apartments can offer.  Both are designed for families or up to five guests in each.

MG View 

We’ve been welcomed to Cottrell Park for over ten years now to help them promote this lovely place to golfers from the Midlands and have genuinely seen further improvements and additions on each visit we’ve made.

This photo here was from 2018 when seven of us, including our South Wales friends Karen and Steve took on the Mackintosh Course one afternoon after enjoying our first stay over at the club. A club that refuses to stand still.
