About 2023 Senior Open at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club
Europe’s Senior Major Championship returns to Royal Porthcawl for the first time since 2017 and fans can see some of the biggest names in over-50s golf in Mid Glamorgan.
The venue, which offers stunning views across Swansea Bay to the Gower Peninsula and offers a true test of golf, has previously hosted numerous prestigious Championships such as The Amateur and the Walker Cup.
Last year, Northern Irishman Darren Clarke claimed the prestigious Championship at Gleneagles, becoming just the fourth player to win both The Open and The Senior Open, 11 years after his triumph at Royal St George’s.
This will be the third time the Championship has visited Royal Porthcawl, with Germany’s Bernhard Langer winning both editions. In 2014, the first time the event visited Wales, two-time Masters Champion Langer made history by cruising to a 13-stroke lead as he finished on 18 under par.
Royal Porthcawl Golf Club was founded in 1891 as a nine-hole course before an agreement was made four years later to add another nine holes. In 1909, the club was bestowed the honour of using the prefix Royal – only the second club in Wales to be granted the privilege after Royal St David’s – before hosting its first significant tournament in 1951 when The Amateur Championship took place.
With some of the biggest names in golf set to battle it out on the Welsh coastline in July. Do not miss out!
