Pennard is one of the oldest golf courses in Wales. Reputedly, golf has been played here since 1896, although the Pennard Golf Club was not founded until 1908. It's often called "the links in the sky", because the holes play across links-like ground, full of dunes, humps and hollows but the land is 200 feet above sea level.
When the strong winds blow up the Bristol Channel, Pennard will be a challenge to even the very best golfers. Don't let your concentration be affected by the wild ponies and cattle, which graze on the links. Additionally, expect a few blind shots and don't expect too many flat lies – Pennard is very hilly, with more ups and downs than most links courses.
