WELCOME TO PENNARD GOLF CLUB
Quote by James W. Finegan "Only two or three times in a lifelong pursuit of the best golf this world has to offer, will an unknown course surface that is so superlative it would compel us not simply to cross an ocean but, if necessary to circumnavigate the globe. Such a course is PENNARD."
Pennard is a magnificent links course situated 8 miles west of Swansea, with spectacular views over Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula, designated the UK's first area of outstanding natural beauty.
GREAT NEWS! (July 28th)
Pennard are the Welsh Victory Shield champions!
Alastair Verbruggen and Ollie Dickson made history at Pyle & Kenfig today when they won their semi-final against Padeswood
and Buckley and followed it up by beating Mold in the afternoon final, for Pennard to win the Shield for the very first time.
The pair got off to a great start in the morning semi but were pegged back by the North Walians and were 1 down after 14. Two great birdies on 15 and 16 got their noses back in front before running out 2 & 1 winners. Mold saw off a very strong Neath side on the 18th in the other semi.
An outstanding display in the final of intelligent and controlled golf saw Alastair and Ollie four up at the turn, and not once did a
driver come out of the bag. The Mold pair tried hard but couldn’t rediscover their morning form and another birdie at the tough 14th sealed a truly outstanding 6 & 4 victory.Special
mention to Callum
Dale and Simon Langford for their brave win in the first round. Thanks also to
caddies Neil Smitham and Gary Evans and rules advisor Tony Smith! Pennard were
the best supported team on the day which was also pleasing so thanks to those
who made it a memorable day.
Many congratulations to Harry Frazer
who is selected to play for Wales U 15s against Surrey at St George's Hill Golf Club, Surrey on the 24th August 2014.
