The first 3 holes are contoured against Rest Bay and are open to the prevailing westerly winds. Although there is some respite on the par 5’s you will come away from “The Royal” with a very good card indeed if you have played to your handicap.

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club features no trees nor water but much gorse and many a typical links pot bunker. The 18th takes you toward the sea, sunset and treasured memories.
The venue to 5 amateur championships, the 1995 Walker Cup between USA and GB/Ireland (Tiger Woods played), the LPGA Championship of Europe (Suzann Pettersen), and 2 Senior Opens featuring the likes of Tom Watson and Fred Couples -what more can be said?

It was just one great hole after another and one great green complex after another. I really fell in love with it immediately

It's right up there with the best courses I've played over there. It is a true test. It's absolutely spectacular.
