Centenary Year 2020

Prior to golf being played at Morriston there was a 9-hole course om Mynydd Gelliwastad Mountain, however not long after the 1914-18 war broke out it was disbanded owing to many a young man from the area being called to serve.

Following this period in 1920 a new Club was formed, and the old Clubhouse from the Mountain was moved to the Land acquired just a short distance from Morriston Cross.

Morriston Golf Club was formed and with a Joining Fee of £1-1s and an Annual subscription of £2-1s it soon attracted 100 Members.

Two of the Annual Competitions played for at Morriston are the 2 Competitions played on the Mountain course nearly 100 years ago, The Gelliwastad Bowl & Gelliwastad Cup.

We were  honoured by Mr Deryl Rees, formally Professional here at Morriston accepting the position of Centenary Captain, Mr Rees is well known for his after dinner speaking with a vast array of stories both fact and fictional which served him well which would have very busy period.

Morriston Golf Club intended to hold various events during the year to celebrate out 100 years but due to Covid 19 restrictions we were unable to hold events, in 2021 we were able to to host our Centenary Dinner, thank you to all who supported us in this.
