The basis of the current Towyn course, was mapped out by Tenby Professional Mr J.E. Grant during the late 1920′s.
Subsequent maturing and landscaping, combined with a unique mixture of links and parkland have produced a superb course which presents a challenge to golfers of all levels.
Excellent drainage and a relatively mild climate ensure that the course is playable throughout the year off regular tees and greens.
Sea breezes combine with links and parkland, to make each round unique and a challenge for golfers of all handicaps. It is a testament to the club’s stature that it regularly hosts not only Regional competitions but also Golf Union of Wales Championships as well as International matches.
Furman Bisher of the Atlanta Journal, doyen of American golf writers, came to Wales to give Royal Porthcawl the once over. He had never been to Wales before and was so impressed he changed his plans so that he and his wife could do a ten-day tour. The game he played at Cardigan was extolled to his readers as one of the highlights: “With the possible exception of Pebble Beach, the view from the top of the Cardigan course is the finest I’ve seen anywhere in golf”.
Course management team
The current team comprises Course Manager Robert Clark, Greenkeepers Jake Kallenberg, Jac Emanuel and Craig Thompson. Extra staff are brought in at the weekend to rake bunkers and clear greens prior to play commencing as required.
