Shambles - don't waste your time and money
It's not an exaggeration when I say this is the worst course layout I have ever come across. To start a lot of the fairways cross over and there was some doubling back to tees. They apparently have removed 2 holes from the course so 2 were played twice to make up the full 18. Signage leading to the next tees was very poor and at times it was very unclear where the next green was. Course layout had been changed, but out of date tee box signs were still present making things very confusing, as it resulted in holes that were numbered incorrectly. We got lost on at least 3 occasions guessing where we were supposed to go next.
Course conditions were decent however unfortunately this isn't too relevent when the course is unplayable due to the layout. A plus side there are some good views from the top of some of the hills.
The clubhouse is very dated and hospitality in the proshop wasn't great. (A warning about the layout would have been nice!)
Despite the low green fees I can't recommend Caerphilly gc, don't waste your time and money.
A lot of crossing fairways / tee boxes. 2 holes were not in play due to weather. Won't be returning any time soon.
