Cardiff City Golf Tour

Overview

Are you looking for;

  • A golf tour that keeps your driving distance to a minimum but wants more flexibility than staying at a resort?
  • Easy access to a lively city centre with good nightlife?
  • Well conditioned, interesting, yet great value courses all within a short distance from the hotel?
  • Sports bar and grill on site, plus free parking and use of leisure facilities all included in your package?

If you answered yes to these questions, then our Cardiff City Golf Tour is very likely for you!

Staying at the Village Hotel provides your group with a well-located base just a few miles from the centre of the city and within a short drive from some excellent courses. It also allows you easy access to some big names in the World of golf including The Vale Resort, Royal Porthcawl, Southerndown and Pyle and Kenfig. Newport Golf Club is also a short jaunt down the motorway for those heading from and back to the East of Cardiff.

Our exclusive rates with all the venues listed on this tour means that we can often provide great pricing that is unmatched. 1 in 16 also goes free and parking and use of the hotel leisure club, usually chargeable, is free of charge.

The three historic parkland courses listed on this example tour are popular local clubs with large and active memberships and therefore do not offer weekend visitor play, so we advise utilising The Lakes or National course at The Vale Resort, just 10 minutes drive away if you require a Saturday round.

Pyle & Kenfig 3

We're taking 2024 & 2025 bookings now!

Your money is safe with us as we are active members of Golf Tourism England, IAGTO and Protected Trust Services. We’ve also been nominated for a World Golf Award in 2023 for the second year running.

One of Cardiff’s finest parkland courses… a must play

Since its establishment, Whitchurch Golf Club has been an emblem of golfing excellence in Wales. The club’s history is a testament to the unwavering dedication and passion of its members, who have continuously strived to create and maintain a remarkable golfing experience.

Situated three and a half miles north of the City of Cardiff, Whitchurch (Cardiff) Golf Club enjoys a stunning location overlooking Cardiff City. The clubhouse and golf course occupy elevated ground, offering breathtaking views of Penarth Head, the Somerset Coast, and the Bristol Channel. The picturesque setting is complemented by the presence of Castell Coch, a thirteenth-century castle reconstructed into a fantastical folly, standing guard on the nearby Wenallt Hills.

Whitchurch Golf Club found its first home at Pentwyn Farm in 1915, after two years of searching for suitable land. The initial nine holes were a product of Rhiwbina Garden Village relinquishing its option on the farm. Recognizing the potential for growth and development, the club purchased an additional 45.25 acres of land adjoining Pantmawr Road and Rhiwbina Hill in 1922. This expansion allowed for the creation of an 18-hole course, securing the future of Whitchurch Golf Club.

Today, the layout of Whitchurch Golf Club remains largely unchanged from its early days, a testament to the skill and vision of Fred Johns, the club’s first golf professional, and Mr. Marjoram of Radyr Golf Club. With horse-drawn machinery and sheer physical effort, they created a course that harmoniously blended with the natural contours of the land. Only the construction of the Whitchurch bypass and the widening of Pantmawr Road necessitated significant alterations to the 4th and 18th holes.

Whitchurch Golf Club has proudly hosted numerous prestigious golfing events over the years, including the Welsh Professional Championship and the Girls British Open Championship. The course’s beauty and challenge have attracted golfers from far and wide. In recognition of its excellence, the club has been awarded the title of best golf club in Wales in Bloom on multiple occasions and has been hailed as the best inland golf course in Wales by “Welsh Club Golfer.”

Whitchurch Golf Club has been a breeding ground for talented golfers who have represented Wales at both junior and senior levels. Nigel Edwards, a current member, has particularly distinguished himself, representing Wales in four Walker Cup matches against the USA and captaining the victorious Walker Cup team in 2011.

For both competitive golfers and those seeking the enjoyment of the sport, the course at Whitchurch Golf Club represents a wonderful challenge. Its rich history, dedication to excellence, and commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the area make it a truly exceptional destination and one of the first names on the list when visiting Cardiff for a golf tour.

A “Little Jewel” by the indelible Harry Colt

Since its establishment in 1902, Radyr Golf Club has carved a distinguished reputation as one of the premier parkland golf courses in South Wales.

Revered as one of Harry S Colt’s magnificent creations, it has been hailed as one of his “Little Jewels.” Colt, an esteemed golf course architect regarded as one of the greatest in history, bestowed his expertise upon Radyr, leaving an indelible mark on its challenging parkland course.

Nestled amidst the serene rural parkland, Radyr Golf Club enjoys a breathtaking setting with sweeping views that overlook the vibrant city of Cardiff and the waters of the Bristol Channel. This idyllic backdrop sets the stage for an unforgettable golfing experience.

The gentle undulations provide a visually captivating landscape for golf and Radyr’s meticulously crafted fairways and greens are the envy of many local clubs. The course showcases the harmonious fusion of aesthetic appeal and strategic design, ensuring a challenging and memorable experience for those who walk the fairways.

A club with a rich history, Radyr Golf Club has had the honor of hosting numerous prestigious National and County events including the Wales Amateur. Most recently in 2015, it played a significant role as the host venue for the Welsh National PGA Championship. Such events showcase the caliber of Radyr Golf Club, cementing its status as a must-play for visitors to the region..

Beyond the course itself, Radyr Golf Club prides itself on its commitment to service excellence and unwavering dedication to its members. The club has been recognized with the prestigious 59 Club Service Excellence Award, a testament to its exceptional standards both on and off the course.

A historic parkland gem in the heart of the Welsh capital

Nestled on the north side of the capital, Cardiff Golf Club stands as a beacon of Welsh golfing history and natural beauty.

As one of the premier golf courses in the region, it has earned its well-deserved reputation as a golf course that is both interesting and playable for all standards, whilst ensuring it does justice to being the golf club named after this great city.

With a history spanning back to the late 19th century, Cardiff Golf Club boasts a legacy that is deeply intertwined with the development of golf in Wales. Over the years, it has hosted numerous events and tournaments solidifying a rich history of local and national competition.

The course itself is a testament to a meticulous design, that has been developed and improved over the years, and impeccable maintenance, ensuring that it remains a major attraction in a city and surrounding region known for its great courses.

The course presents a balance of challenge and reward, demanding both precision and strategic thinking from players. The cambering and often tight, tree-lined fairways are a common feature of the course and this combined with a good variety of interesting and well-protected par 3’s provide an exciting challenge. It is also noteworthy that the greens are some of the best you will find from any parkland in the region.

Conveniently located in the heart of Cardiff, the golf club is easily accessible to visitors from all around Wales and beyond. Nearby accommodation options vary and we can offer a wide selection depending on your requirements, however, The Village Hotel is our preferred suggestion.

Cardiff is a lively city and taking some time to soak in the warm Welsh hospitality in whichever manner best suits your group is certainly recommended. There is a wide selection of great food, local pubs, contemporary bars and nightlife for those who are looking for it.

Reach out to us with your requirements, and our dedicated team will curate a bespoke package tailored to your needs. A golf break to Cardiff promises an unforgettable experience and one which should certainly include the brilliant Cardiff Golf Club.

Village Hotel Cardiff

Sports bar, pool and Starbucks on-site and within minutes of some major Welsh golf courses

Village Hotel Cardiff is a 4-star hotel located 4 miles from Cardiff city center. The hotel has a number of leisure facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, a gym, and a spa. There is also a sports bar with large screens and a pub/grill restaurant on site.

The location allows for easy access to the courses which avoids fighting with city centre traffic, but still allows for a short drive or taxi ride into the city centre for the evening’s activities!

Free parking and leisure access are included exclusively with your golf south west booking and the car park is large enough for you not to worry about getting a space, no matter how big your group is.

Within minutes are the likes of Whitchurch Golf Club, Radyr and Cardiff, plus within a short drive the likes of well-known venues such as The Vale Resort, Royal Porthcawl and Pyle & Kenfig.

    We are extremely proud of the service we provide and a large part of this is ensuring our client’s money is safe. Our practices comply with the 2018 package travel directive meaning that your money is safe with both ourselves and the venues your choose to visit.

    The money for your golf break is paid into a trust account run by an independent partner, so you have peace of mind that no matter what happens, your money is being looked after.

  • What happens if we can’t go on our planned trip?

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
