About the Club

Golf was not the first sport to be enjoyed on the land which the course now occupies; for many years the land was the home of the Monmouthshire races which lasted several days each year and drew large crowds of spectators. In 1872 the National Hunt Chase came to Abergavenny – this is now run annually at Cheltenham.

These races were held until about 1895 even after the Monmouthshire Golf Club was formed, drawing spectators in their carriages and fours, or pairs and landaus to view the grand spectacle – there was even a Grandstand on the riverside near the sixth tee area and this was where the races finished.

The Monmouthshire Golf Club was founded in 1892 as a 9 hole course with outstanding views of the surrounding hills – the Blorenge, Sugar Loaf and Skirrid – and the wooded countryside around. It is a superb example of a mature parkland course which is as tough as it is beautiful, and it is said to be the oldest 18 hole golf course in the County of Monmouthshire.

Monmouthshire Golf Course

Originally a nine hole course, Monmouth was extended to 18 holes in 1992. In that year, also, the new clubhouse was opened, offering a most comfortable location for a drink or a meal with magnificent views of the course and the surrounding countryside.

Claiming to be the prettiest golf course in Wales, Monmouth Golf Club stands on high ground above the town with superb views towards the Welsh hills, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

The undulating parkland course, splendidly maintained throughout the year by greenkeeper Lee Williams and and his assistants, is 5582 yards off the white tees, 5507 off yellow (par 69, SSS 67) and 5118 off the Ladies tees ( par 72, SSS 72 ).

Each aptly named hole offers a different challenge and names such as  Cannes Folly , Kymin View,  The Oasis ,  The Struggle ,  Cresta Run , Long Haul ,  Devils Bunker  ,and Last Gasp give clues to the test in store.

The ambitious player can prepare himself/herself on the practice area and putting green.

As you move away from the clubhouse you become aware of the tranquillity of the verdant surroundings, mature trees, wild flowers and an abundance of wild life  Deer, Pheasant and Rabbit in particular.
