Birthplace of the Stableford Scoring System
Croeso i Glwb Golff Sir Morgannwg
You can find us in the seaside town of Penarth, near to Cardiff, in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan in Wales (Cymru in Welsh).
The Glamorganshire - founded in 1890, the fourth oldest club in Wales - is steeped in history.
It was here in September 1898 that the Stableford scoring system was first tried by its creator, Dr. Frank Stableford then a member of The Glamorganshire.
In recent years the clubhouse has been completely re-developed and offers excellent dining and changing room facilities. There have also been numerous improvements to the golf course.
The par 70, 6,184 yard golf course, enjoying stunning views over the sea, is not actually a links, but an 18-hole parkland course on undulating ground at the eastern edge of Cosmeston Lakes Country Park. With narrow wood-lined fairways, well-guarded greens, water hazards and over sixty strategic bunkers, it offers a stern but fair test to golfers at all levels.
The town of Penarth lies on the north shore of the Severn Estuary on Cardiff Bay, just 5 miles (9 kms) from the Welsh capital city of Cardiff. Only 25 miles (40 kms) away by motorway is The Celtic Manor Resort, which was the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup.
For many years now, Penarth, with its traditional seafront and extensive surviving Victorian and Edwardian architecture, has been a highly popular holiday destination, promoted internationally as “The Garden by the Sea”. The town continues to be an excellent base for the many tourist attractions in and around Cardiff and South Wales.
There is a wide range of accommodation in Cardiff, which is a perfect base after enjoying your round of golf with us here.
You can be assured of a warm, Welsh welcome at The Glamorganshire Golf Club, Penarth.
