Each year we choose a local charity to raise funds for at our Summer Charity Golf Day. In the last two years we have donated to the Lifeguard Clubs of Porthcawl and in 2019 we will be raising money for the RNLI Porthcawl.
We also support a long list of local and national charities by providing vouchers for auction.
The Clubs reputation nationally and internationally helps attract tourists to Wales and Porthcawl. This has been of significant benefit to local businesses, specifically hotels and restaurants.
Our kitchen team are devoted to sourcing fresh, quality produce from local suppliers, and carry out regular visits to suppliers to better understand the 'farm to fork' cycle.
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.
