Southerndown Golf Club, Wales
Southerndown Golf Club, founded in 1905, is said to be
…the nearest championship links-style course to the Ryder Cup venue at the Celtic Manor.
Part sandy links and part acid-heathland, and due to its terrain it is one of the driest courses to be found.
Extensive views from the course and clubhouse are across the channel to the North Devon coast, towards Swansea Bay and the Gower peninsula, down the Ogmore estuary towards Porthcawl and all around the hills and valleys of South Wales.
