Royal Porthcawl Golf Club

Founded in 1891, Royal Porthcawl is historic, the second Royal club in Wales after Royal St David's and the only club in Wales from which the sea is visible from every hole. To date, it is the only club in Wales to host a major championship, the 2014 Senior Open, and certainly the only golf club to have a rest home in which Florence Nightingale once worked adjoining it.

The course has a magnificent setting sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand hills usually found on links courses enables the golfer to see the sea from every hole and to enjoy memorable views south to Somerset and Exmoor, and northwest across Swansea Bay to the Gower Peninsula. With holes facing into every point of the compass, the player is always tested by the wind and will probably need every club in the bag.
