Golf Course Review
Ashburnham Golf Club is located a few miles from the Welsh seaside town of Llanelli. The links overlook the mouth of the River Loughor, Carmarthen Bay and the Bristol Channel.
The links were designed by JH Taylor in 1894 as a 9 hole course. Eight years later, in 1902, Taylor would return and extend it to 18 holes. In 1910, he would return to make further alterations. In 1913, Taylor felt it level with "many of the best seaside courses in the country."
Fred Hawtree made further revisions in 1923 when a new clubhouse was built. CK Cotton built a new 9th hole after WW2.
Ashburnham is a traditional links, routed in an out and in, east-west fashion from the 3rd to 16th holes. The two opening and two closing holes play in a tidy loop in a north-south orientation returning back the clubhouse. The front nine plays westward and into the prevailing wind.
