“Keep your head down? You must be joking. The views are never the same twice, yet always breathtaking,” says Langland Bay’s website – and it is fair comment. Its setting – with ocean views from 15 holes – was the reason it enjoyed a nice slot within the top half of our Wales ranking. Located high above the sand of the Gower, this clifftop course enjoys 360˚ views across the Bristol Channel and towards the Brecon Beacons.
The views from the course take in two of its best bays, Langland and Caswell. The 8th and 9th are played directly along the coast and James Braid predictably made the most of the great site with a clever challenge.
Formed in 1904, it is located over lush meadowland across the sprawling cliff tops of The Gower Peninsula, the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Small greens sit in tempting corners, or perch on daunting slopes, with sand or rough in the last places you want them.
