Must Plays

Royal Porthcawl

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club

"Royal Porthcawl has a long standing and extremely fine reputation. It’s one that continues to grow at an extremely fast pace and shows no signs of relenting. This historic golf club was established in 1891 and granted Royal patronage in 1909 some 14 years after moving to its present location. And what a location!"

Tenby Golf Club

"Golf courses such as Tenby are very few and far between. For me they capture the absolute essence of links golf. They provide not only a true test of the game but give you much more than that; they provide a memorable and scintillating golfing experience."

Pennard Golf Club

"Pennard is one of those fantastic links golf courses that has a little bit of everything. Its remote and rugged location on the Gower Peninsula mixes strategy and quirkiness to good effect and boasts a handful of truly excellent holes. The high cliff-top setting also provides some of the best views you're likely to see from a golf course."

Highly Recommended


Ashburnham Golf Club

"The links at Ashburnham contains some wonderful golf holes on a sandy tract of land that has played host to many notable championships. As recently as 2014 it was chosen as a qualifying venue for The Seniors Open and I can imagine that when the wind howls across this narrow stretch of linksland it will provide a test to the very best."

Pyle & Kenfig

Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club

"There’s so much good stuff to talk about at Pyle & Kenfig it’s not hard to see why it’s regarded as one of the best courses in Wales and a personal favourite of many. Due to its proximity ‘P&K’ is often compared to Porthcawl and whilst there are many similarities, particularly the green complexes, it doesn’t quite match its Royal neighbour."

Southerndown Golf Club

"I was really impressed following a recent visit to Southerndown Golf Club. It’s unlike many courses I have played before and really has its own identity. Set slightly inland from the sea on very high ‘downland’ ground the course has all the playing characteristics of a true links with some superb and spectacular looking holes traversing wonderful sandy ground where sheep roam freely."
