At the confluence of the rivers Wye and Monnow lies the ancient market and border town of Monmouth, surrounded by hills in a region where lowland Britain merges into the highlands of the west.

Four miles west of Monmouth, on the B4233 road to Abergavenny, lies a magnificent championship course opened in 1982 and ready to welcome any golfer eager to test himself against a demanding 6,733 yards of parkland, streams and lakes. The course is positioned within The Rolls Estate, the former home of Charles Stewart Rolls, the early aviator and motoring enthusiast, whose flying and ballooning exploits thrilled the nation and who, with Henry Royce, founded the famous Rolls - Royce Company.

With many magnificent specimen trees of great age throughout the parkland, as well as a fine arboretum near the Mansion; with deer, water fowl, and abundant wildlife; with panoramic views of the superb surrounding scenery, including the Black Mountains on the horizon, it may be difficult to concentrate on ones golf.

Back in 1982 Tony Jacklin asked why The Rolls was being kept a firmly guarded secret; Greg Norman, at one time touring professional to the course, described the four short holes as "fantastic".
