acres of rolling countryside. It is located on the northern fringe of the
Gower Peninsular, Britain’s first designated area of outstanding natural
beauty. The golf course is a testament to the designer Donald Steels philosophy
of “a preference for the natural, traditional look.” He has
ensured the course is part of its surroundings, and utilised every feature
in the landscape. It is surprisingly mature for a new course and there are
some outstanding views.

Pennard Golf Club is an 18 hole 6030 yards links type course. It could be
described as a classic seaside links course but it is actually in a clifftop
setting that presents panoramic views across the Bay. The Club is 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." These Gower courses
must be ranked as some of the best around when looking for a golfing holiday
Bay Golf Club

Langland Bay is an 18 hole, 5857 yards, parkland course ideally located
between the delightful bays of Langland and Caswell, on the Gower peninsula.
The Club, located 5 miles from the City of Swansea, near the village of
Mumbles was formed in 1904, and is predominantly meadowland, Although quite
short the prevailing winds can sometimes add many yards and strokes to one's
score, but nevertheless overclubbing can be disastrous, with trouble behind
most of the small and well guarded greens. As with other Gower Clubs the
views are truly spectacular and make an ideal location for golf holiday.
Visit the Club's website to check out the fantastic panoramic views. Visitors
are welcome but are recommended to pre book, in particular from May 1st
to September 30th.
