Rolls of Monmouth

We took advantage of the beautiful weather last Friday to re-visit the Rolls of Monmouth golf course, about 10 minutes from Monmouth in Gwent.

The Rolls course is set in the parkland surrounding the famous Hendre house, home of and in the ownership of the famous Rolls family until 1987, and most famous as the childhood home of Charles Stewart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce.

The course, which is set over quite hilly parkland, extends to some 6283 yards of the yellow tees (6733 off the whites) with a par of 72 and SSS of 71 (73).

Following on from my earlier post, I’ve now returned from Vilamoura on the Algarve where I was attending a conference. Of course most people go to Vilamoura for a holiday and it’s particularly popular for golf breaks as the weather is glorious and there are so many great courses in close proximity, like those at Quinta do Lago and Villa Sol and of course San Lorenzo.

I’m currently in Vilamoura at a conference , staying at the Tivoli Marina Hotel.

Of course I’m hoping to grab some time to play some of the fantastic courses in the area – there are so many to choose from including those around Vilamoura like The Faldo, Victoria (home of the European Masters), O’Connor, Old Course, Pinhal, Millennium and Laguna, not to mention some other fantastic and famous courses in the surrounding area, like those at Quinta do Lago and Villa Sol and of course the legendary San Lorenzo.

New Tees Update

by David Milton on May 13, 2011

Work to the 10th, 12th and 15th tees is now nearing completion.

We know that Members and visitors alike are all keen to move on to the new tees, and we hope to have them ready soon.

Obviously it is important that we don’t bring them into play too early and much will depend on the weather of course.

We will update you on progress and a provisional date for getting them in play soon.

All of the trees identified for clearing at the start of the year have now been felled (don’t worry – there weren’t many!), but we still need your input on a few more. We have identified a small number of additional trees on the 3rd which may also need to be cleared as they restrict [...]

We intend to remove a few trees around the 1st green to help improve the condition of the green itself, and some more that are causing too much restriction when driving off the 3rd tee.
