What the club says: Originally designed by Willie Fernie in 1905 with later modifications by Herbert Fowler and Willie Park - and most recently by Donald Steel - Southerndown takes full advantage of its natural features.

There are many longer courses, but few with a finer set of par-threes. Equally memorable are the closing holes, usually played into the wind. The 18th in particular with its intimidating gorse and renowned split-level fairway will live long in the memory.

Cliff-top venue. Great views.

First tee overlooks a long craggy coastline and beach. Very picturesque. Quite blustery and exposed - not for fair-weather golfers.
Great mixture of holes.
Sheep on some of the fairways, and even on a couple of greens.
Overall very good condition.
Friendly & welcoming.

A real gem of a course with views to die for

A tough track in good condition where poor shots are punished and good one mostly rewarded. The wind plays a big factor here. Stunning course and well worth the visit

A round with Lydia Hall

A fantastic opportunity to have a round with Lydia Hall, pro on the LET. What a lovely lady, and a superb if not challenging golf course. Very very windy which made it a challenge but not to Lydia so I guess it just goes to show the difference between my game to hers. Very warm welcome and friendly members. A great day had by all

Best course in the Bridgend arwea

Stunning heathland with a real link feel with tight lies and pot bunkers. Have played it few times over the years but right now it is in the best condition possible, given the environment and the odd sheep! Greens were true and a lovely pace, fairways lush after all the rains and stunning views. Great food, made to feel very welcome in the clubhouse.

Interesting course need a buggy mountainous in places. The sheep keep the rough down but do not venture onto the greens. Friendly club .

This course has a great layout with awesome views and very true greens even if they were a bit slow. The fairways on the front nine are quite rough due to last years summer. This results in a lot of poor lies with the ball sitting in bare patches which are below the level of the grass. The amount of sheep s**t on the course starts to grate after a few holes but that was the only real negative.

Could be excellent. Played on it 16th May 2017 as part of a 3 day tour. The course layout is great, and is a real ly challenging links course. Fantastic views. \\Two things spoiled it for me. On the day we played, the greens were probably the slowest I\'ve ever played anywhere, including some cheap municipal courses. I\'m not sure if we ere just unlucky ky on that day, but I really could not recommend the course with the greens as they were. . A member in the clubhouse commented that the greens were normally like Augusta, so not sure what happened the day we played. Shame as it spoiled what could have been an excellent course. The second issue was the volume of sheep poo. Every fairway is absolutely covered in it. It actually became quite unpleasant was we did play half the round in the rain, and wet sheep poo isn\'t nice! lleast favourite if the three courses we played

For me a must play course. A links on a headland where wind often comes into play . The first is a fair hoick to an elevated green.You are then on top of the course with magnificent views. . Traditional clubhouse and well stocked pro shop.
