Southerndown Golf Club

A downland/links golf club in the Vale of Glamorgan, in south-east Wales

Southerndown Golf Club

Perched above Porthcawl, Southerndown has superb views overlooking Swansea Bay, the Bristol Channel and over to North Devon. Originally laid down by Willie Fernie in 1905, Southerndown has subsequently been shaped and modified by no less than Herbert Fowler, Willie Park, Harry S. Colt and Donald Steel. Part sandy links and part acid heathland, the course is set on unique terrain that makes it one of the driest in the UK. The undulating fairways and tight lies are Southerndown's most prominent feature, and the closing holes, usually played into the wind, are the most memorable.
