History

 

This friendly members club was founded in 1905.

The Club’s Founder, Charles Stuart Goodfellow, had decided to take up the sport in 1902 after seeing people playing golf on the sand when holidaying at Minehead. A nine-hole course was designed and laid out on the Pencapel Farm lands on Caerphilly Mountain in 1905, and the area occupied by the course remained substantially the same until 1963 when work began to increase the number of holes to 18.

The club’s eminent history include an incident during World War 1 when a member landed his airplane on the first fairway.

Located within easy walking distance of Caerphilly town centre and the local Bus and Train stations and just seven miles north of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, Caerphilly Golf Club is ideally situated as a base for a golfing break in South Wales. There are few golf courses which can match the views from its fairways especially the 10th. Where else can you look out over a magnificent 13th century Norman Castle with its leaning tower that seems so close you can almost touch it.

Not just a golf course, the golf club is an ideal location for holding a Wedding reception or other special occasion. With a large function room and, uniquely in Caerphilly, an adjoining lounge and patio area overlooking the fairways it really is a special place for that special occasion. Businesses are also catered for with rooms available for hire for large or small meetings, seminars and exhibitions.  There is ample onsite car parking and free wireless internet access.

The Clubhouse is a mix of Modern and Old boasting 2 bars and and a large comfortable lounge.

The adjoining function room is used for many official and social club functions, is also available for private hire and is ideally suited for holding weddings and other special occasions.

Other facilities include a full size snooker table, table tennis and dart board for those long dark winter evenings.
