The Machynys Peninsula Golf Club & Premier Spa is near Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales. The course sits on the north side of the mouth of the River Loughor opposite the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which empties into Carmarthen Bay.

The 7121 yard, 18 hole golf course has been well used for R&A events and national championships.
