Course Description

Pennard Signature HolePennard 7th HoleDescription

Pennard is a magnificent links course situated 8 miles west of Swansea, with spectacular views over Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula. Golf has been played at Pennard 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 links land, large and small dunes and carefully placed revetted bunkers. Exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore, yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore – it is 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard is known as "the links in the sky".

Signature Hole

The 7th hole known as Castle is the signature hole at Pennard Golf Club. 
A magnificent par 4. An inviting tee shot to a tumbling fairway and
will require all your skill to hold a plateau green which runs away from
you. Concentrate on your game as the views may distract you.


"Only two or three times in a lifelong pursuit of the best golf this world has to offer, will an unknown course surface that is so superlative it would compel us not simply to cross an ocean but, if necessary to circumnavigate the globe. Such a course is PENNARD." – James W. Finegan
