Course Details

Course Name: Southerndown Holes: 18 Yardage: 6417 SSS: 72
A challenging links course. The fairways are flanked by gorse and bracken, and fresh coastal 'breezes' provide a stern test for experienced golfers. The 1st an 18th are just two of the many holes guaranteed to love on in the memory.
For an appreciation and independent view of this course please see golfer reviews.

    I am a member of Southerndown and have been for 2 years. The course is very interesting and superbly layed out. The opening hole is daunting especially due to the close proximity of the clubhouse to the tee. The next three holes are not any easier. The first par three (5th) is across a valley and a mistake hear can cost dearly as the green in surrounded by two deep bunkers. The par five offers a reasonable chance of a birdie especially as it is usually downwind. The par 3 seventh is challenge as it is usually into the wind. The 11th is a deceivingly difficult par 4 and the standard scratch rating of one is deserved. The most spectacular views are offered form the 15th hole across the Bristol Channel the sand dunes and the valleys to tbe north of Bridgend. The 18th is the climax and a very good match play hole. It usually plays into the wind and if the wind is blowing strongly it is difficult to keep it form drifting into the gorse to the right
    The gorse and fern mean very wayward shots are severely punished. The course is on common land and sheep graze aid the green keepers in mowing the fairways and consequently the carry's are almost non existent (yellow Tees) making it perfect for beginners and experienced players. The white tees are in different positions and often have large carries over gorse. The view from the clubhouse is first class as is the service and facilities. Visit if in the region (but not to many people don't want it to busy) (N.B. Very busy on Wednesday afternoon). A test of downland
    golf for all especially if the wind is up.
