Rankings

Tenby Golf Club lays claim to the oldest course in Wales, established in 1888, originally as a 9-holer. James Braid was commissioned to extend the course; 18 holes opened for play in 1907.

This charming, classic links is situated on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast, affording superb views across to one of Britain’s most fascinating and holiest of islands. Caldey Island has experienced more than one thousand years of Cistercian prayer. A pleasant summer boat trip from Tenby harbour will take you to the island where you will receive a warm welcome from the various orders of monks.

Tenby is one of the finest and least well-known golf courses in the whole of the British Isles. It is here you will find links golf at its most natural. There is nothing modern about Tenby, but it’s an engaging experience.

Many shots are blind, the contoured greens are hard and fast, and there are snaking hog’s back fairways, dense gorse, cruel pot bunkers and rugged dunes. It’s not a long course by today’s standards, measuring a little less than 6,500 yards from the tips, but the opening four holes (three of which are over 400 yards long) will challenge the very best golfers.

It would be easy to dismiss Tenby as a holiday golf course or as unfair, eccentric or quirky. We think Tenby is very enjoyable; playing here is always a memorable experience and you’ll probably end up playing shots from positions you’ve never faced before. What an absolute delight.

Don’t tell too many people, but the green fee is tremendous value too, and what’s more, you’ll be given a very warm Welsh welcome.
