Almost 140 children with special needs enjoyed the second Cyfle Teg Fair Play event at Glyn Abbey yesterday, with school pupils from all over south Wales travelling to take part.
Glyn Abbey captain Stuart Leeke helped organise the occasion and told the South Wales Evening Post it had been a great success.
The young people, aged between seven and 18, tried a range of activities around the course, including chipping, pitching and putting.
"Everyone enjoyed [the event] and it is definitely something we would want to do again," added Mr Leeke.
Rugby legend Phil Bennett and snooker coach Terry Griffiths also took part, giving medals to the winning youngsters.
Glyn Abbey is one of Wales' most prestigious courses, having been named Welsh Golf Club of the Year in 2009. It also hosted the Tri Nations Special Olympics in 2011.
Anyone teeing off at the Welsh course is advised to check their golf insurance is up to date in case an accident occurs.
