Sean,

Thanks again for these. That is a wild course.

Certainly Pennard deserves a My Home Course so as not to get lost in the archives.

I think a my home club (2) would be an excellent idea.  In reading the Confidential Guide, I'm struck by how several characteristics of clubs stay the same over the years.  Friendliest Wellcome - Pennard. Thatís the sort of thing that a member can educate us on.
Let's make GCA grate again!

Sean, I didn't say it was a teeny bathtub, but it isn't a huge thing!  And very artfully concealed I might add!

Just looking at those photos doesn't do Pennard justice, although the view from behind #15 green says it all.  The fairway turf is much better than it looks in the photos, and it is great fun to step over the wire around each green.  There are a number of really good holes at Pennard; I can't recommend too highly that visitors to Wales make the extra drive out to Swansea for a round or two.

Also, we stayed at a very nice hotel in town (Swansea) with excellent meals - Sean probably knows the place.
