ASHBURNHAM GOLF CLUB – COURSE VLOG – PART 1
We are on a South Wales tour and our first stop is the stunning Ashburnham Golf Club.
Myself (Dan Hendriksen) and Brother Paul Hendriksen will be taking the fans favourite Lester Barnes and the big hitting Will Farley.
One of the classic Welsh links courses which celebrated it centenary in 1994. The Club has hosted a long line of important professional and amateur tournaments including the British Home International Team Championships on three occasions, Welsh Amateur Championship on twelve occasions along with more recently the 2015 Welsh Open Stroke Play Championship and was a qualifying venue for the 2014 Seniors Open Championship.
The famous Harry Vardon said: “This is the course I like best in Wales”. His sentiments have been endorsed by more modern professionals. Three Ryder Cup Captains have won professional tournaments at Ashburnham, Dai Rees in the PGA Championship in 1959, Bernard Gallagher won his first tournament in the 1969 Schweppes Championship and it was here that Sam Torrance also gained his first title, the 1976 Martini.
Overlooking Carmarthen Bay, the course has it first two and final three holes near the clubhouse. Holes three to eight strike out, parallel to the sea, straight into the prevailing wind and holes nine to fifteen run back with the prevailing wind directly behind.
A real test off the back tees the course becomes a lot tamer off the general play tees offering a challenge to all levels of golfer especially in a slight wind. Ashburnham is a pure links experience.
