What the club says: The course was voted 55th out of the top 100 UK Golf Courses and is located just 8 miles west of Swansea on the Gower Peninsula, designated the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty. There is not a weak or a prosaic hole on this short gorse and heather framed, 6,809 yard, par 71 track. Awkward lies and stances are a matter of course and the rugged terrain becomes even more dramatic on the back nine. Beware also, the forty bunkers, which although not exceptionally large, are very well placed and sometimes lethal! Pennard's most remarkable hole may be the 351 yard 7th, which heads out to sea from a high, noble tee. The line of flight between the sparse ruins of a 13th century church and more imposing remnants of Pennard Castle, which dates from the 1100's, presents one unforgettable experience.

Great course

Fantastic course and the greens were in excellent condition. Great hospitality with friendly staff. The fairways were a little bare and patchy in places. We played in windy but dry conditions. Fantastic views all around you.

Truly the Links in the Sky

Fantastic welcome and a great course. Really challenging course with some sublime holes with a second to none finishing 3 holes. Great clubhouse and unrivalled views of Oxwich Bay and Three Cliffs Beach. Greens superb fairways have suffered this summer but lots of work evident to bring up to championship standard.

Nice course terrible condition

My mate played this course 6 years ago and was raving about playing it again. Green were in good condition but the rest of the course had no grass on the fairways. It sits overlooking the sea and is wind blown badly. Shame really could be a great course. And no buggies available on hottest day of the year due to course conditions.

Top class Links in the Sky

Known as the "Links in the sky" sits on top of cliffs overlooking 3 Cliffs Bay into Oxwich Bay, views spectacular and a challenging course that undulates through heather and reed grass. Greens superb. Pro shop welcome great (with indoor electronic studio) and practice facilities good. Club house welcome excellent. Food of very high standard and well presented.

Hot and sunny round. Course played really well. First time round so plenty of blind shots that were hit and hope. Rough was open enough to find balls so managed to get round with the same ball! Beautiful views and really great condition. Greens were fast and true a real joy to play on. Captain and staff were so friendly. Best course i have played in the UK by far. Cant wait to go back

Pennard

Beautiful looking course. Fairways had lots of slopes and it was tricky keeping the ball from running off. Too many blind drives but the greens were fast and true.

Great golf

A fantastic day at the course for a charity event. The course was in excellent condition even though the wind was very strong and maybe the grass on the greens was a little long but the balls would have blown off if it was shorter. The views are excellent and add to the golfing experience. The staff at the course were very polite, courteous and friendly. Looking forward to visiting again in the near future.

The links in the sky

What can I say about Pennard, It beats me up every time, one day I will master this amazing golf course. The holes are very demanding but at the same time beautiful. The greens are immaculate. The views are unbelievable. The clubhouse has a balcony of which overlooks most of the course and three cliffs bay. Definitely a must play golf course

Senior Open (a rd for a tenner) Wow, The views, fantastic, 3hrs 30mins a little fast to take it all in. Back 9 outstanding, would have liked more time on course and a little knowledge beforehand. played with 2 members that were not very forthcoming and didnt have time to consult course planner. Will need to play a round at my pace and take in the atmosphere. True links and fab greens.

Stunning views ! Each hole is individual, fairways are punishing as are the greens. A real challenge, but a real treat. I was lucky to play on a relatively calm day, can imagine a windy day would be a real slog. Condition of course was excellent at the end of March.
