Richard

I started golf late when I was 28 and have being trying to make up for lost time ever since! In 20 or so years I've racked up over 230 courses with 60+ in my home county of Yorkshire. My only claim to fame is to have played all the courses with a Leeds postcode. I've been a member of Headingley Golf Club for over 15 years and my 2 all-time favourites are Muirfield and Royal Birkdale.

The first thing I noticed about Pennard were the cows! They were on the practice ground and all over the 1st fairway. I don’t think I’ve played in a cow pasture before...

3rd North Wales - Best in Area 5th Wales Ranking
