Royal Porthcawl Golf Club
South Wales, Wales
Golf Club Overview
Royal Porthcawl is a classic links golf course that won’t disappoint. Ideally 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.
There are very few links golf courses in the UK that match Royal Porthcawl Golf Club for quality, making it the perfect golf venue to include in the itinerary for your golf trip to South Wales. Ryder Cup captain and former Masters champion Ian Woosnam, and legend Tiger Woods are just two of the names that have put their abilities to the test on this historic golf course. At just over 7000 yards Royal Porthcawl isn’t for the faint-hearted - with strong winds present on every hole and a tough layout, even the best of golfers will struggle to score well here.
