Pyle and Kenfig Golf Course, affectionately known as ‘P&K’.

With its lofty sand dunes hugging the South Wales coast of Porthcawl is situated in a wonderful stretch of golfing country that is also home to Royal Porthcawl Golf Club. Glorious views and historic associations adorn this undulating course with its natural hazards of hillocks, valleys and towering dunes. Established in 1922 the original course was laid out by that great architect H.S. Colt but World War II enforced many changes.

Play was reduced to nine holes, the Army authorities requisitioning the remainder. The rough track bisecting the course was made into a metalled road and the pleasant run by the sea became so popular after the war that play on the nearby fairways was both distracting and dangerous so it was decided to extend the course seaward. P Mackenzie Ross, who was invited to design the new holes, described the terrain as a ‘golfer’s paradise’ providing ample tests for the most skilful of players. It is situated in a region of marram clad sand dunes, far more diversified than the old course. Part of the back 9 has been designated a European Special Area of Conservation. In more recent years there has been a widening of fairways and general clearance of the tall fern plus the repositioning of bunkers. The course is now a wonderful test for all standards of golfers and from the back tees a true championship test.

Here you have a golfing paradise. If I were to set forth all that I thought of this new ground I might be accused of gross exaggeration. I will be content therefore to state that I have played on and studied nearly all the famous courses and I have seen no finer golfing country.

P. Mackenzie Ross

Royal Porthcawl Links Golf Break

2 Nights, 3 Rounds  

Royal Porthcawl Links Golf Break

The Royal Porthcawl Links Golf Break is the perfect package for the links golf enthusiast, your opportunity to play 3 of the finest links courses in South Wales: Royal Porthcawl, Southerndown and Pyle & Kenfig with all courses within 20 minutes drive of each other. This is the perfect golf break for your group of golfers that want to have minimum drive times to the courses.

The 3 courses are all quite different links, Royal Porthcawl Links is right on the coast at Rest Bay in Porthcawl where the sea is visible from every hole. Royal Porthcawl has hosted several Senior Opens and in 2021 will host the Ladies British Open. Tight fairways and immaculate approaches are a feature of the course along with a unique design, the course turning on itself all the time requiring all shot types to play the course well.

Southerndown Golf Club perched on the the cliffs of Ogmore by Sea overlooks the town of Porthcawl and the Merthyr Mawr dune complex. A fantastic setting for a quality links golf course. The common land has grazing sheep throughout the course which add to its charm. The wind plays a huge part in this layout with the prevailing south westerly making for some challenging drives – not least on the 18th which leads down to the club house – often straight back into the wind.

Pyle and Kenfig Links by contrast runs along the coast virtually adjoining Royal Porthcawl on its famous back nine layout. The course runs through the dunes of kenfig nature reserve, and features spectacular views across the Bristol Channel from the front nine. Of the three links courses the greens are magnificent and the envy of many local clubs.

For your Royal Porthcawl Links Golf Break choose from two accommodation options of  either the 4* accommodation at The Vale Hotel Golf Resort & Spa or the 4* Dragon Hotel in Swansea. Other Hotels are available on request.
