Review for Royal Porthcawl

Reviewer Score:


One of those subtle courses that grows on you.No stunning holes but no poor ones either.All very classy,interesting and varied.Lovely sea views and a nice low-key sort of feel to the place.Wonderfully quirky old wooden clubhouse-if you've never seen red roofing felt before then that's because Royal Porthcawl grabbed it all ! We sat out on the veranda with a few beers at the end of a very hot 36 holes and watched the surfers do their stuff on the beach below.All very pleasant.Would definitely come again.One little grumble...could the club maybe spend some of our not inconsiderable green fees (£120 for the day) on a bit more sand for the bunkers? Whenever we tried splash shots we seemed to hit a hard base below the soft top layer.S'pose the answer is don't go in them in the first place !
