Gower Golf Club
Cefn Goleu, Three Crosses, City of Swansea, SA4 3HS, Tel : 01792 872480
The Gower Golf Club has an 18 hole, 6441 yards, parkland course set in 150 acres of rolling countryside. It is located on the northern fringe of the Gower Peninsular, Britain’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The golf course is a testament to the designer Donald Steels philosophy of “a preference for the natural, traditional look.” He has ensured the course is part of its surroundings, and utilised every feature in the landscape. It is surprisingly mature for a new course and there are some outstanding views.

Fairwood Park Golf Club
Blackhills Lane, Fairwood, City of Swansea, SA2 7JN Tel : 01792 297849
Situated on the Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty, (an ideal location for a golf break or golf holiday) Fairwood Park is an 18 hole undulating parkland championship golf course set in 150 acres of majestic terrain and is located just 15 minutes from the City of Swansea. Fairwood Park is a 6,658 yard parkland course that hosted the Welsh PGA Championships twice during the 1990s, and is therefore the only course in Swansea that can claim ‘Championship’ status. Societies, with a minimum of 12 guests, and visitors are always welcome subject to pre arrangement.

Pennard Golf Club
Southgate Road, Southgate, City of Swansea, SA3 2BT, Tel : 01792 233131
Pennard Golf Club is an 18 hole 6030 yards links type course. It could be described as a classic seaside links course but it is actually in a clifftop setting that presents panoramic views across the Bay. The Club is located 8 miles west of Swansea in the Gower Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played there since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows and pocked with dunes large and small; in sum, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore - It is two hundred feet above it. No wonder Pennard has been called "the links in the sky." These Gower courses must be ranked as some of the best around when looking for a golfing holiday !

Langland Bay Golf Club
Mumbles, City of Swansea, SA3 4QR, Tel : 01792 361721
Langland Bay is an 18 hole, 5857 yards, parkland course ideally located between the delightful bays of Langland and Caswell, on the Gower peninsula. The Club, located 5 miles from the City of Swansea, near the village of Mumbles was formed in 1904, and is predominantly meadowland, Although quite short the prevailing winds can sometimes add many yards and strokes to one's score, but nevertheless overclubbing can be disastrous, with trouble behind most of the small and well guarded greens. As with other Gower Clubs the views are truly spectacular and make an ideal location for  golf holiday. Visit the Club's website to check out the fantastic panoramic views. Visitors are welcome but are recommended to pre book, in particular from May 1st to September 30th.
