Pennard is a natural, old fashioned and in places quirky links but a total delight to play, and although there are one or two climbs the walking is not too hard – despite being on top of the cliffs this is genuine links land . The marker posts for the blind shots are generally well placed and the rough is quite short, so finding balls is not too problematical. The greens and the course in general are in good condition. As stated before by previous reviewers, the views are absolutely breathtaking, particularly on the 7th and 16th holes, and the livestock on the course actually add to Pennard's unspoilt, timeless charm. All in all tremendous fun, every hole is an interesting and different challenge - would imagine when the wind is up this course is a very stern test. We also received a warm and relaxed welcome from the Professional and Clubhouse staff, and having the practice green and range close to the 1st tee and clubhouse is very convenient. In short Pennard has got the lot for the visitor in search of an enjoyable test of true links golf.
