Gooderson Monks Cowl Golf Resort's 9 hole, 18 tee golf course is certainly one of the most scenic with views of the magnificent Champagne Valley - including Monks Cowl itself, which is between the towering Champagne Castle and Cathkin Mountains and took on its name because it resembles a cleric's attire from every tee.
