The Welsh Golf Classic was a men's professional golf tournament on the European Tour, that was held annually in Wales from 1979 to 1982. The inaugural event was held at Wenvoe Castle Golf Club near Cardiff, with the other three stagings taking place at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in Mid Glamorgan.
In its final year, the prize fund was £49,609, which was one of the smaller purses on the tour that year.
