What the club says: Pontardawe Golf Club was formed in 1924 by a small band of local men collected from the business, industrial, academic and ordinary life of Pontardawe. The stunning course is set 600 ft above sea level with views over Bristol Channel and Brecon Beacons.

A hidden gem is what Peter Alice said and I agree, but I was a member for 5 years. Always well manicured with very good greens. Beautiful panoramic views from the 16th hole. No bad holes and some very good ones, lots of birdie opportunities. Getting round there is a good work out especially if you're carrying!

Played this course twice in a week and it was outstanding form tee to green. Lovely pint of Cobra and Coors in the club house, and the home made curry and chips for £5 perfect to end a round.

Pontardawe, is the best kept secret in South Wales. Club Championship had to be postponed the weekend I played, due to the weather preventing the ground staff from preparing the course!! Goodness knows how good it will be when they can. It was absolutely outstanding. Greens quick and true, fairways like carpets with clear definition between first and second cut and a great atmosphere in the clubhouse. Golfers breakfast pre round is highly recommended.

Very, very low fog difficult to see, obviously slowed my game down and had an excellent round by my standards on this course, fairway to green all good, pint and golfers big breakfast outstanding.

Philip S rated 3 out of 5 - Apr 10 2014

Paid just £12 to play on Monday 7th April; but heavy mist came in after just 2 holes limiting visibility to just 100 yards at most holes. Also heavy and non stop rain meant most fairways and several greens were unplayable.

However, the course design is very good, with very few long walks to tees and very few climbs. Pick of the holes are the 3rd, 6th 12th and of course 16th.

Very friendly welcome in clubhouse, shame about the weather. Course would be excellent value in Summer

Contrasted continues to impress. Yet more drainage work has been carried out over the winter. The greens and tees were incredible, given the recent wet weather. If you haven't played Pontardawe, you really are missing out.

Had a lesson with the pro which was excellent. Was surprised by the quality of the fairways and particularly the greens which were outstanding. A great layout with outstanding views. Outstanding.

Hadn't played for a few years but the drainage work that's been carried out really has worked, great course. The 4th is still recovering after some recent work but that can't be held against it, at least it shows that money is being spent on the course. Great value, friendly members, breathtaking views and a good pint with a warm welcome. What else could you ask for?

The drainage work that the groundstaff have carried out during the winter is really paying off, as the course is in excellent nick. The greens were a little slow but true.
My partner and I went round in under 3 hours, partly due to the members we caught up with calling us through immediately. Top marks for course etiquette. I CANT RECCOMEND A VISIT TO PONTARDAWE HIGHLY ENOUGH
We got back to the club before the bar opened, so made do with coffee from a machine: not ideal, but hey ho.
Only down side of the round was, despite breaking my handicap, I still lost the money.

The course has had extensive drainage work and shouldering of trees carried out through the winter and it shows. Very dry fairways and fast and true greens. The course is probably better than it has ever been.
Two adequate practice areas (one 6 bay covered range for irons only.) And the welcome in the clubhouse, both pre and post round, from members, staff and commitee is second to none.
Good, reasonably priced food in the club as well.
The best course in the area.

A very well done course with brilliant views fron the tenth hole and onwards. A few soggy holes but it had rained before my visit and it was the middle of Febuary. A warm and cosy club house to return to after a cold 18 holes!!!!!!!!!
