If it didn't have a royal neighbour, P&K would enjoy a far wider reputation. It has many fine qualities that distinguish from Royal Porthcawl. It possesses much higher dunes and deeper, disconcerting valleys in a layout that offers plenty of diversity. Originally mapped out in 1922 by H.S. Colt, large chunks of the course were requisitioned by the army in World War II; after which it was decided to move seawards into dunesland that designer P. Mackenzie Ross described as a "golfers' paradise".

There are two loops of nine holes returning to the cosy clubhouse and the second half is regarded as the tougher of the two with the final three holes viewed as the hardest of the lot. Each over 400 yards and with a daunting tee shot towards deeply-bunkered problems, they promise a demanding finish that helps make a visit to the more fabled links down the road an incomplete experience if you don't include P&K in your itinerary.
