Packages and Tours

Pennard Golf Club, 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 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”.

There is not a weak or a prosaic hole on this short gorse and heather framed, 6,225 yard, par 71 track. Awkward lies and stances are a matter of course and the rugged terrain becomes even more dramatic on the back nine. Beware also, the forty bunkers, which although not exceptionally large, are very well placed and sometimes lethal! Pennards most remarkable hole may be the 351 yard 7th, which heads out to sea from a high, noble tee.

The line of flight between the sparse ruins of a 13th century church and more imposing remnants of Pennard Castle, which dates from the 1100s, presents one unforgettable experience. The rough on both sides of the fairway is almost inhumane and the green, hidden above in a cluster of sandhills, slopes sharply away from the pitch. Pennard is surely among the top twenty greatest courses in the world with a course that emphasizes shot values and the strategic considerations required supply golfing excitement of the highest order. On www.top100golfcourses.co.uk, Pennard Golf Club has been voted in the top 100 courses in the British Isles for the past 3 years and is currently rated as the fourth best course in Wales.

Pennard is one of my all time favourites - the site is one of the most spectacular I've ever seen.
