Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club founded in 1906, is a historic links course set a short distance away from the Bristol Channel, it is a short drive from the M4 motorway and competes for one of the best back nines in the country.

Set within Glamorgan countryside, Pyle and Kenfig shares Welsh countryside and coastal views. This 18-hole complex provides challenges for all abilities with its rolling fairways, deep pot bunkers and green runoffs. When you add in the sand-based playing surfaces the course was built on you can count on immaculate playing surfaces year-round.

Massive heritage also follows the club as they have co-hosted some world class tournaments like the British Amateur in recent years. Additionally, they have held the Welsh Amateur Championship and the Welsh Pros. Expectantly, with such prestigious tournaments being held at Pyle and Kenfig fairly frequently, you are likely to see some golfing stars navigating the fairways. The history of the club runs deep within Welsh golf.

The front nine of the course is where you make a score. Some drivable holes and reachable par 5s if played well can set you up for a great round. But the course won’t just give you a good score you will have to earn it, through successful tee ball placement and a creative short game. If you are after that pure links feeling, then the back nine will not disappoint. Each hole is an individual and most of them are cut out of sand dunes. The 13th hole is one of Pyle and Kenfig’s more well-known holes which is a dog leg right cut in-between two sand dunes and it just doesn’t get more linksy than that.  

Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club  is committed to sustainability. Different initiatives encourage a positive environmental impact for the complex and the subsequent surrounding area. Such initiatives include electric golf carts, locally sourced foods for patrons and wildlife protected areas like wildflowers and migrating birds.

Additionally, there is a large putting green, warm up netts and a chipping and pitching area. The club house offers both members and visitors a friendly environment to retreat to after a windy day on the links.

In conclusion, Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club is a fan favourite for visitors travelling to Wales in search of a Championship Links Course. Between its tough course set up, great playing surfaces and hospitable staff and members Pyle and Kenfig is a must visit when visiting the Vale of Glamorgan.
