Course overview

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club is currently the highest ranked course in Wales according to, which is saying something considering the caliber of courses available in the country.

The course is located within a magnificent setting on the south coast of Wales, sloping down to the seashore while enjoying fantastic views over Somerset and Exmoor to the south and north west across Swansea Bay and out to the Gower Peninsula, with these views being enjoyed from almost every hole due to the lack of large sand dunes that may normally block the panoramic views on offer at many links courses.

The design of the course offers a varied golfing experience, with the first 4 and last 6 holes offering classic links golf, while the middle part of the course features plenty of gorse and has many distinct heathland characteristics. The layout offers a unique experience as it does not follow the traditional out and in layout, instead moving unpredictably in all directions, creating a course where every hole is a different challenge as the wind affects each hole differently.

The greens at Royal Porthcawl are large, tiered and impressively defended by strategically placed bunkers, however if you can find the green with accurate approach shots, then you may be rewarded with the opportunity of posting a low score, but stray into one of these traps and you will be facing a tough shot to get yourself back into a good position.

Royal Porthcawl is a championship course of the highest quality, considered by many to be the finest course in Wales, with it’s stunning location, unique golfing experience where no two rounds are the same and fantastic modern facilities. If you are looking for a stay & play venue that offers the highest quality of golf, then look no further than Royal Porthcawl Golf Club.

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.
