Located 8 miles west of Swansea in the Gower Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played there 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 and pocked with dunes large and small; in sum, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore.
Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore - It is two hundred feet above it.
No wonder Pennard has been called "the links in the sky." In common with Southerndown, animals graze the common land upon which the course is built. Several blind holes test the golfer to the extreme, however the views from parts of this course are amongst the most spectacular in the area. Looking across to Three cliffs bay as you contemplate your tee shot on the 16th is just one of many highlights here. An excellent test of golf and well worth a visit.
