Coed Y Mwstwr Golf Club officially opened its doors in 1995, as a 9 hole, privately owned golf club, and many of our members hark back to those times. In 1998, the club was bought by the members, although the land that the course stands on is still leased from the originally developer. The club is now a members club, run by a Board of Directors, and various committees, for the benefit of the members and guests. In 1995, the course was formed in a series of fields just outside Coychurch, next to the entrance drive to the Coed Y Mwstwr Hotel. There were some mature trees, and hedges, but in the main, the course was defined by the planting of hundreds of small trees. Those small tress have grown in the intervening years, and are now between 10 and 15 feet high, presenting much more formidable hazards. As well as the normal out of bounds outside the course, there are two houses located within the boundaries, and their land is also out of bounds. This presents some interesting holes, reminiscent of Spanish and Portuguese golf courses within developments, where there are out of bounds all along at least one side of the hole. In 2004, the club obtained a grant from Sportlot, which has enabled us to purchase land and create a further 6 holes, so becoming an 18 hole golf course. These additional 6 holes, which form the 1st to 6th, are on the opposite side of the Hotel drive from the remainder of the course. Again, use has been made of the existing mature trees, together with the planting of numerous new ones, to define the course. The official opening of the new holes by the National Assembly Minister for Sport, Alyn Pugh, took place on July 1st 2005. Over the years, the membership has grown, and now stands at over 500. There is a thriving junior section, with just short of 70 members, and the club has always prided itself on the youth development policy.
