Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club is home to a golf course laid out in the former estate of the Rolls family. Charles Rolls, who teamed-up with a certain Henry Royce to build luxury cars, was their most famous son.
The fabulous Rolls mansion, visible from many points on the course, has clearly seen better days, but the beauty of the surrounding countryside, the rolling terrain and picturesque views onto the Black Hills are clearly in keeping with the sublime beauty of Charles’s automotive lineage.
The golf course itself is located in relatively open parkland with some lovely mature trees dotted around. The par 3’s are all good golf holes, but others, particularly on the back-nine, could benefit from better definition.
If the driving lines on some holes are not overly clear from the tee, then don't think things will get any easier to read on the greens; here you will need to master some treacherous slopes, surely inspired by the luxurious curves of a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2019].
Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire (if pre-booked).
Hendre House, the stately mansion around which the Rolls of Monmouth golf course is laid out, was originally a hunting lodge (or ‘box’ as it was called), parts of it dating back over three hundred years. It was in the ownership of the Rolls family from 1767 until 1987. The Rolls family enlarged the old house in several stages over many decades. The house is now used for weddings and other non-residential functions.
