Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club

This event is an opportunity for the EIGCA Community - members, students, partners, affiliates and patrons - to come together and EIGCA’s Council is hopeful that travel restrictions enable the usual large number of delegates to attend.

The theme for the conference is Golf for all with the focus on the role of golf course design in equality and inclusion. Sessions will cover: accommodating golfers with disabilities – specifically those with hearing loss; and how golf is helping rehabilitate lives after military service. A spotlight on Women in Golf includes a session on the R&A’s Women in Golf Charter plus talks from high profile women in the sport.

One element of the Annual Meeting that delegates look forward to is the chance to play on top golf courses. This year the President’s Cup will be played on two of the best:

  • Royal Porthcawl Golf Club is the highest ranked course in Wales (also top 25 in Great Britain and Ireland and top 100 in the world. This world-class links course has holes facing each point on the compass with sea views from every hole. The course is not only a highlight for every keen golfer, but also an exceptional study subject for any golf course architect.
  • Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club, a links course unusually laid out in two loops of nine, provides golfers with stunning views over the Bristol Channel, the Gower Peninsula and the magnificent welsh hills. Affectionately known as ‘P&K’, this Mackenzie Ross course, ranked No. 10 in Wales, has something for everyone, particularly the awesome, breath-taking second nine holes which will test even the very best golfers.
