Southerdown Golf CourseSoutherdown Signature HoleDescription

Southerndown is a hidden gem, unique in offering part sandy links and part acid-heathland, and due to its terrain it is one of the driest courses to be found throughout the land. Founded in 1905, Southerndown is the nearest championship links-style course to the Celtic Manor resort. Top amateurs like Peter McEvoy and Gary Wolstenholme, world cup winners Stephen Dodd and Bradley Dredge, and the legendary Gene Sarazen have all graced the fairways.

Southerndown is a true test of golf, don’t expect target golf here. This is a course where you have to manage your game through the natural contours and firm greens, around the gorse and bracken and pot bunkers – and then there is the wind off the sea! This is golf as it should be.

Signature Hole

The 5th hole is the signature hole on Southerdown. Its called Carter’s folly! The tee shot demands a long carry across the valley. Take plenty of club: the bunkers short of the green have wrecked many cards! If using a golf buggy, please use the path marked to the left as the slope down from tee to green is dangerous.
