Ashburnham Golf Club

One of the classic Welsh links courses, Ashburnham celebrated it´s centenary in 1994 by staging the British Home International Team Championships. This was the latest in a long line of important tournaments held here since the early 1900´s when Harry Vardon said: “This is the course I like best in Wales.” His sentiments have been endorsed by more modern professionals. Bernard Gallagher, Europe´s former Ryder Cup captain won his first tournament, the 1969 Schweppes, at Ashburnham, and it was here that Sam Torrance also gained his first title, the 1976 Martini.



Overlooking Carmarthen Bay, the course has it first two and final two holes inland near the clubhouse. Holes three to eight strike out, parallel to the sea, straight into the prevailing wind and holes nine to fifteen run back with the wind directly behind.With out-of-bounds and assorted trouble on the right in both directions there is no peace for the slicer. Neither are the fairways of a generous width and the fact that the current course record is no lower than 70 bears witness to the credential of the challenge.

Pennard Links Golf Club

Pennard Links Golf Club is located 8 miles west of Swansea in the Gower Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played there since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton.

The holes at Pennard are routed over classically undulating and tumbling linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows and pocked with dunes large and small; in sum, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore.

Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore – it is two hundred feet above it. No wonder Pennard has been called “the links in the sky”.

Pennard Links Golf Club

Pennard has been ranked in the UK´s top 100 courses for the last four years and is currently rated as the fourth best course in Wales.

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club

The course has a magnificent setting sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand hills usually found on links courses enables the golfer to see the sea from every hole and to enjoy memorable views south to Somerset and Exmoor, and northwest across Swansea Bay to the Gower Peninsula. with holes facing into every point of the compass, the player is always tested by the wind and will probably need every club in the bag.

RP 1 Hole 1

Royal Porthcawl was described as being one of the twelve finest courses in the world by the late Tom Scott, a leading writer on golf and former editor of Golf Illustrated. Since his day the club has acquired a large practice area and further improvements have been made to the course, developments which keep Royal Porthcawl firmly among the world´s top golf courses.
