Designed by James Braid, the Pennard Golf Club is set in one of Britain’s most dramatic landscapes. Its cliff-top site provides golfers with stunning views of Oxwich and Three Cliffs.

The most interesting thing about the golf course is that it has no average holes. Each hole is different from the next.
