    Royal Porthcawl was described as being one of the twelve finest courses in the world by the late Tom Scott, a leading writer on golf and former editor of Golf Illustrated. Since his day the club has acquired a large practice area and further improvements have been made to the course, developments which keep Royal Porthcawl firmly among the world's top golf courses. The status of the course is sustained by the many prestigious professional and amateur events held at the club over the years.

    The course has a magnificent setting sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand hills usually found on links courses enables the golfer to see the sea from every hole and to enjoy memorable views south to Somerset and Exmoor, and northwest across Swansea Bay to the Gower Peninsula. 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.

    I had the pleasure of being invited to ply this course on the 7/9/17. Unfortunatly the weather was horrendous but that didn't take too much away from enjoying my round on what was a great course. Views over the cliffs were magnificent. You could tell that there had been a bit of foot traffic on the course from the senior open the previous week but the tee boxes, fairways and greens were still in fantastic condition and I can't wait for the next opportunity to play this course.

    Excellent undulating fairways wending their way to superb greens. The wind blows and every aspect of your game is challenged but still it is an absolute joy to play. First class hospitality.
