What a lovely place ! Very modern clubhouse in contrast to the course, which is carved into someof the best land I have seen whilst playing. The first six holes appear to be where you need to start to put a score together as from the 7th to 15th all you get is tough scoring holes. Driving at the 8th ... make sure you get some height on your drive and do not pull it left as the old church wall will delight on pinging your ballback 50 yards (Been there, done that !) At the 16th a little rest as par is comfortable target. But then at 17th a real toughy par 5 - not on length but on the way the fairway turns left through the gorse to the green.As mentioned in the Top100's review there is a lot going on here .... old castles, old churches, beautiful views,cows, cowpats etc ....... all in all it's really really good. Not an easy walk (a lot of ups and downs) but miss playing at Pennard at your peril - Highly recommended.
