Royal Porthcawl named as Golf Club of the Year 2013
Royal Porthcawl Golf Club has been announced as Golf Club of the Year 2013.
This prestigious award covers both Royal Porthcawl’s challenging championship links course and its unique, characterful clubhouse.
The award was made under the Club Awards category by Club Europe through the Club Managers Association of Europe.
In making the award, judges were looking for “…a club which manages to combine traditional standards with forward thinking strategies, encouraging new followers as well as ensuring that existing members are looked after, securing a healthy future for both the club and - at a broader level - golf in the UK”.
Next year Royal Porthcawl will host Wales’ first Major championship – the Senior Open Championship on 24 – 27 July 2014.
