ASHBURNHAM

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

This beau­ti­ful links along the south coast of Wales staged what is now the Tour’s flag­ship event, the PGA Cham­pi­onship, in 1959 and 1969. It pro­duced two fa­mous win­ners in Dai Rees and Bernard Gal­lacher, and sub­se­quently hosted the 1976 Mar­tini Tour­na­ment, won by a young Sam Tor­rance. All three went on to be­come Ry­der Cup cap­tains. The club con­tin­ues to host im­por­tant events, and the JH Tay­lor de­sign is a fine and very en­joy­able test which of­fers ex­cep­tional value for money.
