    Idyllically located on the Glamorgan coastline with panoramic views of Exmoor, Royal Porthcawl is a fantastic links golf course that dates back to 1891. Like a lot of classic courses, Porthcawl started out as a 9-hole course until it was extended in 1895 by Ramsey Hunter. Since then the Royal Porthcrawl has undergone extensive modification by none other than Harry Colt in 1913, and then 20 years later by Tom Simpson. Over the years the course has matured and become what is now known as the best golf course in Wales.

    Royal Porthcawl is like any classical links course. The open layout means that golfers are left unprotected from the strong coastal winds, providing a very interesting challenge for anyone who walks out onto the stunning landscape. The considerable length of the course, as well as an abundance of pot bunkers, adds to this challenge to ensure that visitors need to be on their A-game. Royal Porthcawl Golf Club really is a magnificent course and we highly suggest that you add this to your golfing itinerary for a thrilling golf trip to South Wales.
