Button Gwinnett

Cottrell Park Golf Resort in South Wales

The magnificent Button Gwinnett Course with its rolling views of the Vale, is a little gem. Based more on an American design with a number of water features spread over the 18 holes, this course offers challenges for all categories of golfers. A fantastic finishing hole awaits you in full view of our Clubhouse.

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 Mackintosh course offers a completely different golf challenge to the Button Gwinnett and is designed around the original features of the historic parkland trees. The course again boasts some water features, with several doglegs and finishes with a strong Par 4 18th hole. To have two different courses on the same resort is unique.

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 Golf Course at Cottrell Park, South Wales - An overview of our golf course with the presence of many scattered trees

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!
