We believe the Club must contribute to the local community by supporting charities and businesses, participating in community projects and providing employment opportunities.
Every year we host a Summer Charity Golf Day in aid of a local charity. In 2017 and 2018 we donated £12,000 to the Lifeguard Clubs of Porthcawl. In 2019 we will be raising money for the RNLI Porthcawl.
Each year we also support a long list of local and national charities by providing vouchers for auction.
The Clubs reputation nationally and internationally helps boost tourism in Wales and Porthcawl. This has been of significant benefit to local businesses such as hotels and restaurants.
Our kitchen team are committed to sourcing local produce and are particularly interested in 'Farm to Fork'. This looks at the entire process from how it is produced to how it is presented on the plate. Regular site visits to suppliers are carried out to ensure standards are maintained.
The Dunes at Kenfig Burrows and Merthyr Mawr Warren are designated a National Nature Reserve and Special Areas of Conservation. Once part of a massive dune system these two important ecosystems are now separated by the limestone pavement of Porthcawl Coast, two golf courses and settled farmland.
The above project has facilitated the collaboration of nature reserve managers, landowners, golf clubs and farmers to sustainably manage the coastal landscape, improve the ecosystems, increase biodiversity and connectivity between the two dune systems, exploring the benefits of this management for people, businesses and communities.
As a result of the project, we were the first Club in Wales to be awarded GEO certification which reflects our commitment towards sustainability.
The Club provide work experience for local students in all departments including administration, golf course maintenance and hospitality.
We are proud to have some Welsh speaking staff who can offer a truly Welsh experience.
