Royal Porthcawl is the #1 course in Wales and has a magnificent
setting sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand hills usually found
on links, allows views of the sea from every hole, but some of the sand bunkers
could conceal a tank. With holes facing into every point of the compass, the player
is always tested by the wind and will probably need every club in the bag. The
status of the course is sustained by the numerous amateur and professional events
held at the Club. The first three holes skirt coast and the wind whips across
the beach. The last four holes return to the sea and a wind that can blow a dead-on
drive off at right angles to the fairway. 6,691-yard par 72 - Links.
Vale Resort -Wales National Golf Course is
destined to be one of the greatest UK inland courses fearsome bunkers, tricky
water features and USGA standard greens combine to make a challenging round of
golf. There is a mixture of mature wooded areas, wide and narrow fairways and
vast water and bunker features, all set in the spectacular countryside of Wales,
with its abundance of wildlife including badgers, swans, rabbits and hawks. It
has played host to several European Challenge Tour and Seniors Tour events as
well as some for the Europo Tour. It is one of the longest golf courses
outside of the USA. 7,433 yards, par 73 - Parkland.
Also at the Vale is the aptly named Lake Course - which has
staged numerous Wales and West PGA professional championships - is dominated by
a 20-acre lake and has water coming into play on 12 of its holes. Its 8th hole
looks down over the largest heronry in Wales. Its unique signature hole, The Island
Green (12th), is ranked one of UK golf courses top golf holes. 6700 yards, par
72 - Parkland.
Southerndown is part links and part heathland, on a massive
limestone outcrop, which rises over 70 metres from the sea and gives superb views.
This accounts for the course’s free drainage and the overlying soil supports
heather, bracken and gorse. The westerly winds have deposited centuries of sand
to give the front eight holes a springy, links-style character with the wind adding
to the challenge. Many championship events have been staged here over the
years. The views from the 10th tee are spectacular over the North Devon coast,
Swansea Bay and the Gower peninsula, down towards Porthcawl and all the surrounding
hills. 6449 yards Par 72 - Downland / Links.
Machynys Peninsula Golf & .C.C. is designed to challenge
the best players in championship conditions and yet still be enjoyable for the
higher handicapper, by utilising up to five tees per hole. Gary Nicklaus supervised
the design on behalf of his father, the legendary Jack Nicklaus. He identified
his favourite and most challenging holes as the 4th, 5th, 16th, and 18th. Naming
the fourth, "the most unique, a short par 4 but a very challenging and a
difficult one nonetheless." and "the 16th, a par 4 played across the
lake from behind the clubhouse is probably one of the most beautiful holes on
the course”. 7100 yards, Par 72 - Links
