Royal Porthcawl Golf Club
Since the club's establishment in 1891, the land has changed little, and is a links course in the purest sense. The original nine holes were scrapped in 1895 and just a few years later, the present championship course was opened for play.
The majestic quality of Royal Porthcawl is underlined by the regular award of extremely prestigious amateur and professional events. Exposed to the elements, Royal Porthcawl is a no nonsense test that should be a certain priority for lovers of seaside golf, and is the star of a golf tour along the south coast of Wales.
2014 Senior Open Championship
Bernhard Langer completed a remarkable wire-to-wire victory as Royal Porthcawl hosted the Senior Open Championship for the first time, carding a closing round of 67 (4-under) to win by a staggering 13 shots from Colin Montgomerie. The German finished at 18-under-par, eclipsing Bob Charles’s 1989 record for the biggest winning margin in The Senior Open by six strokes. A final day crowd of more than 10,000 watched Langer’s historic victory, taking the total attendance for the tournament to 43,500 – the second highest in the history of The Senior Open Championship.
