Pennard is superb. Every hole asks a different question. Plays longer than the card yardage (we played off the whites). Stunning scenery, course in great condition. Pro incredibly helpful and very welcoming. Play it if you get the chance

One of my all-time favourites!! There isn't a single boring hole on the course. The 7th is a great short par 4. This little two-shotter embodies the brilliance of this course; strategy and well thought out golf shots trump power. The par 3 13 is one of the hardest I've played. A semi-blind uphill shot from over 200 yards is demanding to say the least. I could go on about every hole but I'll just end by saying that outside of the Royal Dornoch, this is the most interesting course I've played. In my opinion this course deserves to be rated higher.

I played her last Monday 27th June 2011 and found the course to be set over some spectacular ground. You play over undulating links land that enjoys a view over a spectacular bay from every hole. Ancient ruins are dotted about the course and playing here will stay in the memory for a very a long time. Each hole weaves between hillocks and dunes, over ridges and crests to sheltered greens nestled against the dunes high above the see. Some of the tee shots are so inviting that it is hard to compare with anything I have played. It is a fair test of golf over very natural Ground and I highly reccomend it to anyone.The holes go in all directions and present a fresh challenge on every tee.some of the tees and greens are precipitous and offer fabulous views down to the estuary and open sea.

Played this on a very wet and windy June afternoon and still had a great game! The undulations of the links course made the round all the more interesting and the views are to die for!One negative was the less the perfect greens, though they were more than adequate for a links course.Overall a great course in a great location.

I agree with many of the reviews here that this is a great golf course. We played in good weather mid-June but in a 2-club wind that was nearer 3 by the end. It is a tough course and not for the hacker. There isn’t a weak hole on the course and some really memorable ones. There are many elevated greens which made the approach shot very difficult. The negatives were that the greens were a bit slow and the fairways a bit scruffy. The views over the bay were terrific so bring your camera. Well worth a visit if you are in this neck of the woods but bring you’re A game.

This course is a cracker and doesn't receive the recognition it deserves apart from on this website. It most definitely deserves its Top 100 ranking. Huge variety of holes and just about all memorable in there own right. Amazing views that could distract you from your round, must be some of the most stunning in Britain. Huge undulations on the fairways that give you awkward lies and greens that will test your putting skills to the max. I hope this course rises up the rankings. I was lucky to play here on a calm day as I can imagine how tough it would be if the wind blew!! Must play if your in the area.

A fantastic place for a day of golf; 18 holes of great variety, friendly welcome, stunning views, and even the cattle add to the 'naturalness'. Played in september open week and condition was the best I have known. There isn't a boring hole on the course, and like many others the 7th hole, with the castle on the right, is one of my favourite holes. The views walking down the 16th fairway are staggering, but beware the slopes on the green which make even the shortest putt tricky. Although Royal Porthcawl is tougher I think personally the variety of Pennard just edges it for me

Good course setup and steeped in history but very scruffy. I would recommend it if it wasn't for the rude green keepers and their lack of attention to detail. We played on a Links Golf break and played Pennard, Ashburnham and Machynys. I would recommend them all as they each offer something different.

I played this wonderful course 10 days ago. The pro and assistant were very friendly and helpful. It was a challenging day with a 2 club wind. The course required many forced carries, course was in good condition with the greens slick. The back nine had some wonderful views of the castle and water. I wanted to play this course because the designer of Bandon Dunes in the States got many of his ideas. Would recommend this course.

Played this course a few times now and have to say what an absolute delight. It is without doubt one of the finest links designs in the top 100. Superb land which will test every shot in the game, elevated greens which keep you guessing on choice of club, par 3's which demand accuracy and views to die for. As a previous reviewer has already stated this is pure golf porn! - beware target golf fans!
