Pyle & Kenfig
The Vale Hotel
Undulating fairways and tight lies give the course a downland/links character. Bracken and gorse punish wayward shots and on windy days golfers need to negotiate the hazards with care.
There are many longer courses, but few with a finer set of par-threes. Equally memorable are the closing holes, usually played into the wind. The 18th in particular with its intimidating gorse and renowned split-level fairway will live long in the memory.
The potential of Southerndown as a championship course has long been recognised. Years ago Harry Vardon and James Braid predicted that it would become one of the best in the country. Having hosted the Piccadilly Masters and the Martini International, Southerndown annually stages the first of the Welsh Amateur Order of Merit events - The Duncan Putter.
