Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today to James Braid. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling links, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows with dunes large and small, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore, it’s 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard has been called “the links in the sky”.
There is not a weak or simple hole on this heather framed 6,267 yard, par 71 course. Awkward lies and stances are a matter of fact 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 seventh, which runs out to sea from a high, noble tee. The line of flight between the sparse ruins of a 13th century church and the more imposing remnants of Pennard Castle make it an awe-inspiring hole.
An award winning course, Pennard was recently voted 55th in the top 100 courses in Britain and Ireland and it’s not hard to see why when you appreciate just what a beautiful and challenging course Pennard is.
