Langland Bay Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Langland Bay Golf Club Est. 1901

Where2Golf says: 

Langland Bay Golf Club is home to a grassy meadowland course, uniquely situated high on some cliffs. It overlooks the delightful bays of Langland and Caswell on the Gower peninsula. After four rather pedestrian opening holes, things improve dramatically as you climb onto the highest part of the headland separating the two bays. Although quite short and with an SSS (Standard Scratch Score) of 69 the prevailing winds can sometimes add many yards and strokes to your score, but nevertheless overclubbing should be avoided, with trouble behind most of the small and well guarded greens. The 8th hole, a comparatively short par-4 designed by James Braid, has a spectacular view looking down into the bays of Caswell, Pwlldu and Brandy Cove. Its the 16th hole however that steals the show, a fabulous downhill par-3, aptly named "Death or Glory". This seaside course with its spectacular views, and warm welcome for visiting golfers is certainly one of the lesser known gems and best value courses in South Wales.

Did you know?

It seems certain that the land running to the edge of Newton Cliffs, where the golf course is now located, had been cultivated for many centuries. Indeed, the texture of the grass on the golf course indicates how well nurtured the land has been. A map provisionally dated as 1842, shows a maze of small fields running from Newton village down to Langland Bay in the South and to Caswell Bay in the West. Older inhabitants of Newton village have said that golf was played on the cliff top in the nineteenth century, but the first writen mention of golf at Langland is in the Golf Club's first minute book, dated 24th September 1901. The course was officially scheduled to open on Saturday, September 10th 1904, when the President, Sir John Jones Jenkins (afterwards Lord Glantawe) was asked to drive off.
