Welcome to Pennard
For over 100 years golfers have enjoyed the beautiful links course and warm hospitality that Pennard has to offer.
Founded in 1896 the Club has a proud heritage and today is a private members’ club with an unassuming style, which conceals a very special place for both members and visitors to enjoy the game we love.
“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.”
James W. Finegan
Whether you are planning a visit for the day, would like to join our membership community or wish to hire the facilities for a private occasion we look forward to hearing from you.
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. Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling links land, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows with dunes large and small and carefully placed revetted bunkers, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore – it is 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard is known as “The Links in the Sky”
