Golf Brings In the Punters to Porthcawl

In my Seaside News column this month, I have raised the benefits of major golf tournaments would bring to our local economy. The investment in our local businesses and hospitality sector is fantastic for Bridgend and Porthcawl. We must continue to explore what opportunities exist to attract major events to our area.

Support for Golf In Bridgend and Porthcawl

I recently met with golf clubs across Bridgend, who stressed to me the need for more funding to support and promote golf across Wales.
BCBC have responded to my calls for more funding to develop golf in Bridgend County by deciding to contribute £50,000 towards the Senior Open Golf Tournament at Royal Porthcawl.
