18 hole parkland course. Secretary: Mr Peter Tully.
Monmouth Golf Club is conveniently situated along the A.40 , half a mile north of Monmouth Town, in the direction of Ross on Wye. Turn left into Leasbrook Lane and continue for approximately half a mile - you cant miss it. Nor would you want to, the MGC celebrated its centenary in 1996 and has been at its present location since 1921.
Originally a nine hole course, Monmouth was extended to 18 holes in 1992, the year in which 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.
Monmouth certainly has every justification for its claim to be one of the prettiest courses in Wales and is undoubtedly one that is renowned for the warm welcome offered to its guests.
The course stands on high ground above the Town with superb views of the Welsh Hills, Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. The undulating parkland course, superbly maintained throughout the year by head greenkeeper Mike Williams and his team is 5698 yards off the white tees ,5507 off yellow (Par 69, SSS 67) and 5118 yards off the Ladiesred tees (Par 72 SSS72) Each aptly named hole offers a different challenge and names such as Cannes Folly", Kymin View", The Oasis", The Struggle", Long Haul", Devils Bunker" and Last Gasp" give clues to the test in store. The eighth hole, Cresta Run" was recently included in Britains 100 most extraordinary golf holes" which also nominated Monmouth as having the best value green fees in the country.
As you leave 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. Visit the MGC- you will not be disappointed.
