Overview Pennard Golf Club

Pennard Golf Club, voted 55th out of the top 100 UK Golf Courses, is located just 8 miles west of Swansea on the Gower Peninsula, designated the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty.

Golf has been played at Pennard 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 with dunes large and small, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore – it is 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard has been called “the links in the sky”.

There is not a weak or simple hole on this course and heather framed 6,267 yard, par 71 course. 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!

Pennard’s most remarkable hole may be the 351 yard 7th, which runs 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.
