Royal Porthcawl Golf Club

The status of the course is sustained by the many prestigious events it has hosted

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club

Probably the most famous golf course in Wales, Royal Porthcawl has a magnificent setting, sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand dunes usually found on links courses enables the golfer to see the sea from every hole and enjoy memorable views south to Somerset, and northwest across Swansea Bay. With holes facing into every point of the compass, the player is always tested by the wind and will probably need every club in their bag. The course has played host to the British Amateur Championship in 2002, and also the Walker Cup in 1995, when Tiger Woods was on the losing side.
