The whole day was great, the pro shop staff, club staff and members were very friendly and welcoming. The course is tough with the rough being particularly brutal. Cows stroll across the course but are no problem. When the wind blows especially the 14th onwards are tough tough holes but very enjoyable. The Par 3, 185 yds was just reached... More

Played pennard on April 27 although the rain and weather was cold for first 5-6 holes the course itself was absolutely stunning, undulating fairways making every hole different with its own challenges greens were fast and true and the views where absolutely stunning over looking the three cliffs and oxwich bay. All staff and members very helpful and friendly will... More

Great golf course with stunning views. Played in early March, but course was dry and in nice condition.

As Howard Stern says, he wants to see a Wow factor, and this course certainly provided that. Unique holes, great elevation changes, sea views, hiking, undulating fairways carved out of the dunes, and friendly members who are keen to see you have a good time. It's great that the public also gets to use the course for walking, hiking, biking... More

Myself and some friends have just been along the Welsh coast playing some courses and our first stop was Pennard. It was their club championships on the day we went and it was definitely set up like that. The greens were fantastic! Quick and true, some tricky pin positions which certainly got the imagination going on your long putts. The... More

We played this course as part of a golf trip that took in four courses. This was by far and away the best of them. The golf was a challenge and demanded concentration throughout the round. The greens were of particular note being true and quick and very rewarding (having watched the pro's moan about the Chambers Bay course these... More

Views are wonderful but this course is certainly a test for anyone. The marker posts are often not the best line. Even when you think you have a good shot when you reach you ball it will have rolled into the rough. It is often luck if you ball stays where you want it. The fairways have suffered due to... More

Superb golf course in a very pleasant environment. The staff were excellent and the clubhouse was very friendly. The golf course is a really good test of golf and you do well to play this to your handicap. It is certainly in my top ten of golf courses and we will be back.

We booked via Tee Off times and came across a great deal to play this course whilst on the Gower Peninsula. For £22.50 it was terrific value for a quirky, unorthadox links course with blind tee shots, rugged terrain and cows wandering across the common land. Once we adjusted to the menagerie of users including walkers, day trippers dogs and... More

My first ever proper links course - and what a belter! Some terrific views across the bay but you do need to beware of walkers with their dogs - some of whom clearly think you are playing golf on their walking route and don't take time to be wary of their surroundings and acknowledge the golfers. The first few holes... More
