Pennard Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

You’ll be on a golfing high throughout your visit to Pennard, known as the “Links in the sky’ – it’s magnificently perched on clifftops 200ft above sea level. With fairways and greens flanked by gorse and heather and with five short holes playing in different directions, Pennard will keep you on your toes, and captivated throughout with holes weaving in between sand dunes and routed over classically undulating and tumbling linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows. Well placed revetted bunkers wait to gobble up anything slightly off line. Star hole is the simply sensational par-4 7th  - dramatically played out to sea from an elevated tee.

Golf has been played at Pennard Golf Club since 1896 although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. Pennard's star hole is the 351 yard 7th, which heads out to sea from an elevated tee, the line of flight  between the ruins of a 13th century church and remnants of Pennard Castle, which dates from the 1100s, presenting an unforgettable experience.

Accommodation: The Winston Hotel in Bishopston (2 miles) and the nearby Parc-le- Breos is a very good B&B.

  • 4 out of 5 Wales most picturesque links course.

    By Dubsdred

    I play this course a couple of years ago it was very unique and quirky. The same guy who designed Bandon Dunes in the States got some of there ideas from this course. It offer good value, it can be quite difficult if winds come up.

    I had tried to play the Fairwood golf course earlier in the day but i was turned away because I did not own a pair of Golf Shoes although i had played the course the week before without my shoes!!! When I rang Pennard Golf club and told them about my situation they let me play the course despite me not having shoes and they also gave me a reduced green fee of £15!! The course is set in stunning surroundings and it is a great test for golfers of all ability and age. Im definetelly going to go back.

    Fabulous airy course with stunning views of the cliffs and ruined castle. Watch out for free-roaming ponies and cows though, as this is common land.
