Ashburnham Golf Club, founded in 1894, is one of Wales' best and earliest golf courses. JH Taylor, Fred Hawtree, and Ken Cotton (an Ashburnham member) all collaborated on the course's design, producing a traditional out and back, links course that rolls softly across the dunes. Views across the Gower peninsular, Worm's Head, and Carmarthen Bay, as well as proximity to the Burry estuary, make this a lovely destination to play a round of golf.
'The Ash' began as nine holes in 1894, was expanded in 1902, and was later adjusted by JH Taylor, Fred Hawtree, and Ken Cotton.
With a maximum length of 7,000 yards from the tips, it has successfully hosted several Welsh Amateurs as well as professional tournaments, producing two, star champions in Bernard Gallacher and local favourite Dai Rees.
In the clubhouse, the lounge and bar area views the golf course and has patio doors that go out to the course, in which you can observe the sun go down as the remaining golfers finish their rounds.
Ashburnham Golf Club, located west of Llanelli near Burry Port, is another profoundly underestimated Welsh links.
