Golf Course Says
Radyr Golf Club has long been considered one the premier clubs in South Wales. The course was opened in 1902 and was designed by that godfather of early 20th century course architecture Harry S Colt. Today, complete with its wonderful views over the Cardiff, the heathland course is as beautiful to look at as it is difficult to tame! A popular host venue for national tournaments throughout its long history Radyr Golf Club was also the first course in Wales to host a professional tournament in the early part of the last century.
Nestling in rural heathland, Radyr Golf Course has changed little since it was finalised in 1915 by Colt and its gentle undulations provide a course which is a delight to the eye.

I have played Radyr many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The course is excellent in both design and condition. The greens are amongst the very best in the area. First impressions can be deceptive in that it can appear straightfoward but be warned! In mid summer when the rough is grown in and the greens are at their slickest the course can be very challenging particularly when the wind blows, which it often does. At around 6100 yards It is not long by modern standards but 7 of the 11 par 4's are over 400 yards (well over in some cases) and the 5 par 3's are as good as you will find anywhere particularly the 12th which is exceptional. The only minor criticism is the fact that the two par 5's are relatively short however the 8th is an excellent risk and reward hole due to the deep ditch that runs along the front of the green. The traditional clubhouse offers good quality,reasonablly priced meals and the newly refurbished lounge has a nice 'wine bar' feel to it. Definitely a 'must play' course! The Pro shop is good too!
On arrival at Radyr the clubhouse and grounds look very nice, but the welcome to visitors is very frosty. We talked to several members and each acted like they owned the club and you were not made welcome at all. The course was very short, and not very pretty, and the two 18 handicappers in our party found it a very easy course and commentated that their handicap would be two lower if they were members of this club.
Inside the clubhouse it was very dated and smelt of damp and the changing rooms looked like a schoolroom from Tom Browns schooldays. The pro shop was well stocked and refreshments in the clubhouse were reasonable but £40 a round to play in winter or even summer are extremely outrageous for a course which to be frank has not got a lot going for it. All in all it is one course which none of us would be returning to.
