Par 71, yardage 6,225. Pennard Golf Club is located 8 miles west of Swansea in the Gower Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played there 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 linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows and pocked with dunes large and small; in sum, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore - It is two hundred feet above it. No wonder Pennard has been called "the links in the sky". Daisies sprout in the fairways and bluebells and buttercups aboud in the long rough grasses, but spirited topography provides the first line of defense on this sublimely natural links.
