Morlais Castle May 22nd

Built in 1270 by Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Lord of Glamorgan, the remains of what once was Morlais Castle, runs along the right hand side of the third fairway and overlooks the border between Brecon and Glamorgan.

A challenging moorland golf course set in the surroundings of the foothills of the Brecon Beacons with some magnificent scenic views. Situated some 24 miles north of Cardiff. Morlais Castle Golf Club is enjoyable for both low and high handicapped golfers.

Spectacular views across the Brecon Beacons National Park, the course is one of two halves. The first nine holes are built around the old quarry while the back nine are set on rolling moorland. A modern clubhouse and indoor practice area coupled with the warmest of welcomes completes the Morlais experience.

One hundred years has seen many changes at Morlais Castle Golf Club. We now have a course and clubhouse of which we can be proud and the facilities that they offer to members and guests. Morlais Castle Golf Club has always held a reputation for being friendly to all who seeks its company both on the course and in the clubhouse
