    Golf Course Information

    As the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup and home of The Celtic Manor Wales Open, a leading European Tour event, The Celtic Manor Resort offers some of the finest golf courses and facilities in the UK. These include the Robert Trent Jones Snr designed Roman Road course, The Montgomerie, designed by Ryder Cup legend and next European Team Captain, Colin Montgomerie and The Twenty Ten, which is the first course in history specifically designed to host The Ryder Cup. There is also a world-class golf academy featuring a floodlit two tier driving range, short game area, golf shop and teaching bays. The courses are served by two luxurious golf clubhouses – The Twenty Ten Clubhouse and The Lodge, which is one of Europe’s largest clubhouses.

     

    The Twenty Ten Course

    Built to stage the 2010 Ryder Cup, the first course to be built specifically for golf’s greatest team tournament, The Twenty Ten measures a robust 7,493 yards (6581m) off the back tees and has a par of 71. With water hazards on half of its holes, the course has six signature holes and presents many more memorable tests and risk-and-reward dilemmas. One of the features of the spectacular course is its variety with many of the earlier holes having a links-like feel with long rough and greenside swales, before the middle section reveals the full extent of the lake-lined challenge. A tough finishing stretch culminates in a real sting in the tail at the 18th.

     

    The Roman Road Course

    The very first of the Resort’s courses, Roman Road opened in 1995 and was ranked ‘the top inland course in Wales’ by Golf Monthly Magazine. This par 70 course overlooks the Severn Estuary with views across to Somerset and Devon. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, it is named after the old Via Julia Roman highway that ran through its fairways. As the venue for numerous European Tour and Senior Tour events, this challenging course features some long open fairways but also a number of twists and turns through trees and across streams. The different grass cuts are immaculately trimmed and any round on The Roman Road feels like a tournament round, due to its high-end maintenance and lack of wind.

     

    The Montgomerie Course

    Offering a spectacular par 69 challenge, the legendary Colin Montgomerie has called on all his Ryder Cup experience to create a course with many exciting tests of strategy. Montgomerie has also drawn on his roots in Scottish links golf to create a traditional feel enhanced by deep and penal pot bunkers. Spectacular views abound with dramatic tee shots over valleys and breathtaking downhill shots. Host course for various professional and high ranking amateur events. This course was the 2015 EuroPro tour venue, and features rolling hills of parkland doglegs that create a fun challenge. The spectacular par-3 is featured in the 1001 Holes You Must Play Before You Die book.
