Enjoy outstanding courses at our first-class golf resort, in 400 acres of South Wales parkland

Our golfing facilities truly make us stand out from the crowd. Whatever your level of skill and experience, our courses have something to offer you, and all set within unrivalled scenery in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan.

Our impressive, professional golf facilities include our 2 championship designed golf courses, 3 state-of-the-art sport simulators (including our brand new GC Hawk simulator), putting greens (including our new indoor putting green), 1 chipping green, 1 on-course practice area, optimal swing clinic and an Academy area.

Button Gwinnett course

The magnificent Button Gwinnett Course provides 5,841 yards off the yellow tees and 6,180 yards off the white tees. Based on an American design, the course features 13 lakes spread over 18 holes, and culminates in a fantastic finishing hole in full view of the club house.

The course is named after a former resident and one of the fifty-six men to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776, cementing his title as one of America’s immortals. His unusual forename was a homage to his uncle Sir Thomas Button, a naval explorer most famous for charting the American northwest coast.

The course is a worthy challenge for all levels of golfers and is often dubbed the tricky but enjoyable course.

Mackintosh course

Spanning 6,113 yards off the yellow tees and 6,450 off the white tees, The Mackintosh Course is the longest of our two Parkland courses.

The course gets its name from past Cottrell resident, Alfred Donald Mackintosh of Mackintosh the 28th Chief of Clan Mackintosh and Chief of Clan Chattan. Living at Cottrell until his death in 1938, Mackintosh made his Welsh seat a centre of lavish entertainment and social gatherings.

The Mackintosh is a True Parkland par 72 course with mature trees up to 300 years old. The course provides 6637 challenging yards off the Championship Tees and is designed around the original features of the historic parkland.

This well constructed course includes four Par 5s, four Par 3s and ten Par 4s, making the Mackintosh a testing but enjoyable walk.

48 golfers from Chipping Sodbury enjoyed a fabulous day at Cottrell Park yesterday. From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff made us feel most welcome. The Button Gwinnett Course was a joy to play in the good weather and in very good condition. The 2 course meal that followed our golf was extremely tasty and served by very friendly staff. We shall definitely return after what was a simply most enjoyable golfing experience. Thanks to Katie and her team for the organisation!
