Our simulators are impressive, innovative and have a staggering degree of accuracy. New for 2019, our range now includes a state-of-the-art GC Hawk simulator.
Equipped with numerous cameras and cleverly angled to capture a video analysis of your swing, our golf simulators are incredibly popular.
The simulators map both of Cottrell Park’s courses as well as over 80 national and international courses, including the likes of Carnoustie, St Andrews, Pebble Beach, The Emirates and The 2010 Ryder Cup Course at Celtic Manor.
Alongside golf, our simulators offer a wide range of other sports such as rugby, football and ice hockey.
Our leisure area also offers an indoor putting green, for extra practise when the weather's a little wet!
Members and visitors can enjoy use of the snooker and pool room, featuring two full-sized snooker tables and two pool tables, which you’ll find next door to the golf reception.
Relax with a few games of pool with friends, or hone your skills at snooker - both activities are ideal for couples, groups, and work teams.
Our private fishing lake sits within the nature trail, and is swarming with carp, roach, tench, bream, rudd and even a few domestic fish. Members can fish for free and visitors are welcome upon registration and settlement of the £5 per day access fee.
Please note a rod licence is required to use the fishing lake.
Navigate your way around our 400-acre park with our tranquil trail - perfect for an early morning jog, a daytime adventure or an evening stroll. Free to members and patrons, the trail shows mother nature at her finest and showcases the captivating countryside as the jewel in South Wales’s crown.
For adventure explorers who love all-terrain fun, our off-site activities include quad biking, paddle boarding, archery, mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting & raft building.
