Proper links golf in Wales is often quirky and funky, but at Royal Porthcawl, it has the pedigree and style to hold up against the Open Rota courses of Scotland, Ireland, and England. As a result, this old school design, with influences from some of the best architects in history like H.S. Colt and Tom Simpson, is host to numerous high-level amateur events, including Walker Cups, Curtis Cups, and numerous nation amateur events. With views of the Bristol Channel and blurring the lines between links and heathland, this is a must-see on any trip to Wales.
