Located about eight miles from Swansea in south Wales, Pennard Golf Club is one of the more unique golf links in Britain.

It's been designed and redesigned several times over the past century, but Southerndown Golf Club remains relevant today. The golf course poses problems with its approach shots that encounter deep bunkers. Set on common ground, it serves as home to sheep that roam free and graze on rough, adding to the unique experience off the southern coast of Wales.
The Celtic Manor Resort's three golf courses, including its newest, the 2010 Ryder Cup host Twenty Ten Course, are stages for the world's top pros every year.

Prior to the British Open at Royal Birkdale, The GolfChannel.com crew took their own links golf tour in nearby North Wales, where they played such historic gems as Aberdovey and Nefyn & District.
