Rolls of Monmouth Golf Course

To call this the Rolls Royce of golf courses is not too fanciful because this is where the first Rolls Royce engine was built. Greg Norman also paused here on his way to the top of world golf. He was the touring professional in the 1980’s.

With a large wooded hill at its centre and surrounded by 600 acres of woodland, it allows you to take your punishing test in peace and tranquillity with only the odd deer to disturb you. This is an absolute must if you are on a South Wales golf break.

The clubhouse is the former workshop and garage of the 18th Century mansion which was the home of Charles Stewart Rolls. He formed a partnership with Henry Royce – the rest is history.
