Ashburnham Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1894

Ashburnham Golf Club is home to links golf course with an impressive past, very solid credentials and a popular following among links devotees. From the opening hole, a good-length downhill par-3, to the closing uphill par-4, you will experience an enjoyable out-and-back links course, that's capable of giving every aspect of your game a thorough examination.

The terrain for much of the way round is relatively flat (with a few notable exceptions); towering dunes border the course on the seaward side, rather than necessarily being integral to the layout - these sand hills do however provide much needed shelter when the wind is blowing at its fiercest.

Many holes are lined with gorse bushes, occasionally small trees and deep-rough, as you would expect on a seaside links course. In keeping with the best of Welsh seaside courses, the excellent greens are full of tricky slopes and undulations, on which your final score can be made or broken. Only on the 16th tee and 18th green are you rewarded with impressive views over Carmarthen Bay.
