At the Carlton Hotel Mumbles, we have on going deals with our outstanding golf clubs in our area. This includes drop off and pick up facilities.

Please take a look at the local courses below and please call us for further details.

There are great views and there are great golf courses, rarely do they come together with such perfection as they do at Langland Bay. High above the golden Gower sand is a cliff top clearly designed by nature with only one purpose in mind, breathtaking golf. The elevation brings 360-degree views, across the spectacular Bristol Channel in one direction, and the distant Brecon Beacons in the other.

This is Langland Bay, where every drive has an astonishing backdrop and every club has a part to play. Keep your head down? You must be joking. The views are never the same twice, yet always breathtaking. The clubhouse boasts an enviable reputation for its warm welcome and unparalleled outlook over the broad sweep of Langland Bay.

Welcome to Pennard – where you’ll find great golf and lifelong friendship.

For over 100 years golfers have enjoyed the beautiful links course and warm hospitality that Pennard has to offer. Founded in 1896 the Club has a proud heritage and today is a private members' club with an unassuming style, which conceals a very special place for both members and visitors to enjoy the game we love.

Whether you are planning a visit for the day, would like to join our membership community or wish to hire the facilities for a private occasion we look forward to hearing from you.

Pennard is a magnificent links course situated 8 miles west of Swansea, with spectacular views over Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula, designated the UK's first area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling links land, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows with dunes large and small and carefully placed revetted bunkers, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore - it is 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard is known as "The Links in the Sky"

Clyne lies at the entrance to the beautiful Gower Peninsula, the UKs first designated area of outstanding natural beauty.

Designed by the legendary Harry Colt in the 1920’s, this moorland course offers a fine test of golf for all levels of handicap. Clyne prides itself on the fact that they have all year round grass tees and championship quality greens.

Clyne is listed among Peter Alliss’s 200 best golf courses in the British Isles and the course enjoys commanding views in all directions. Indeed, Peter’s father Percy Alliss was Clyne’s first professional in 1920.

The venue for the 2014 South Wales Girls Championships, the 2014 Glamorgan Men’s County Championship, the 2016 Glamorgan County Junior Championship and the 2016 Welsh Team Handicap Qualifier,  the course enjoys stunning 360˚ views, overlooking Swansea to the east, the Bristol Channel and Mumbles to the south, the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons to the north and with the commanding heights of Gower’s Cefn Bryn to the west. 

Situated in the heart of the Gower Peninsula (Britain’s first designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Fairwood Park is set in 150 acres of fabulous woodland and parkland countryside and to this day remains the only golf course within the County of Swansea to have ever hosted a PGA event, a fact that means those who play here should be in no doubt as to the quality of golfing experience that awaits them.   

 With over 15,000 mature trees and water coming into play on nearly half of its holes, Fairwood Park is an outstanding example of woodland/parkland golf at its best with wide, forgiving fairways which nonetheless punish the most wayward of drives by forcing the overly ambitious to take some ‘wedge medicine’ out of the trees with their 2nd shot! 

 

As the flattest of all the golf courses on the Gower Peninsula, Fairwood Park can be enjoyed by golfers from right across the entire age spectrum, something that’s of particular benefit to those players whose main interest lies in golfing rather than mountaineering! In a nation characterised by hills and valleys, Fairwood Park is one of Wales’ least tiring rounds of golf. 

 

Measuring just shy of 6,700 yards off the Championship Tees, Fairwood Park’s layout was designed in 1969 by the renowned Hawtree dynasty of course architects, who proudly lay claim to being the longest continuous golf course architecture practice in the world. Indeed, Fairwood is one of just two Hawtree designed golf courses in South Wales and its superb layout is a testament to the Hawtree company’s work, a golf architectural dynasty that has been involved in over 750 course design projects since 1912.

Machynys is a Nicklaus designed 7121 yard modern links golf course, Elemis Premier Spa, Gym and Health Club featuring first class food in Machynys Bar and Brasserie, complete with Golf Academy and Driving Range.

Since opening in 2005 Machynys has been privileged to have hosted an unprecedented 11 championships, including 2 R&A Open Championships and 4 Ryder Cup Wales LET Championships of Europe. The golf course has  been recognised as an Open qualifying venue.

Machynys offers a friendly, professional welcome to all visitors who are encouraged to utilise its 5-star facilities, including MONKS HEALTH CLUB & PREMIER SPA, MACHYNYS BAR & BRASSERIE with its wrap around sun-deck, or the 20 bay ACADEMY and DRIVING RANGE not forgetting of course the world class NICKLAUS CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF COURSE.
