They call Pennard the 'links in the sky' because although it has all the trappings of a seaside links course - it is perched high on a cliff-top west of Swansea This brings a double benefit to the lovers of links golf – the sand-based fairways offer the usual pleasures; and its lofty position provides outstanding views.

There is also considerable advantage that it's usually playable when other courses succumb to the elements. Apart from that, it is an excellent golf course and often plays host to big championships of the amateur game in Wales. Pennard was designed by the great James Braid whose skill is behind many of Wales's best layouts and has been developed to meet modern needs with extended tees and improved fairways and greens. It proves very popular with American golfers and is often included in packages which also take in Royal Birkdale and the Belfry.
