Royal Porthcawl Golf Club introduction
Royal Porthcawl is a classic links golf course that won’t disappoint. Idyllically positioned on the Glamorgan coast with panoramic views to Exmoor and Somerset in the South, this championship golf course will test even the best of golfers. The open layout means that the golf course is left exposed to the strong prevailing winds, and with a hole facing in every direction, all clubs in the bag are likely to be needed.
