As you would expect of a Ryder Cup host venue, the golfing facilities at Celtic Manor are
exceptional. The Twenty Ten Built at a total cost of £20 million, The Twenty Ten is the first golf course in history to be designed specifically for The Ryder Cup and has since made its mark as a must-play venue for any golfer.
Set against the magnificent backdrop of the beautiful Usk Valley, the spectacular 7,493-yard, par-71 course includes many memorable risk and reward challenges, designed to provide a supreme test to the world’s best golfers in both match play and stroke play conditions.
No fewer than six holes on the back nine feature water hazards and the 14th, with its twin lakes, the drivable par-four 15th and the reachable par-five 18th stand out in an epic closing stretch.
The Twenty Ten course is complemented by a luxurious clubhouse which features a bar and restaurant, balconies boasting panoramic views over the course, a spike bar, pro shop, private members’ lounge and sumptuous locker rooms.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, the Roman Road championship course takes its name from the ancient East to West highway of Roman Britain crossing its fairways to the nearby Roman fortress town of Caerleon. Bordered by woodland, this challenging course features some long open fairways but also a number of twists and turns through trees and across lakes and streams.
Roman Road hosted The Celtic Manor Wales Open, a leading European Tour event, from 2005 to 2007 and has also hosted celebrity events including the All*Star Cup and The Celebrity Cup.
The Montgomerie offers a spectacular par 69 challenge with some dramatic tee shots over valleys and breathtaking downhill approaches. Course designer Colin Montgomerie has called on all his Ryder Cup experience to create many exciting tests of strategy. He has also drawn on his roots in Scottish links golf to create a traditional feel enhanced by deep and penal pot bunkers.Complemented by some stunning views over the Usk Valley and the Severn Estuary, the undulating course provides a truly memorable golfing experience.
The Celtic Manor Golf Academy is one of the best facilities of its kind in Europe and was appointed the Wales National Centre of Excellence in 2009, when a new short game practice area was opened by Arnold Palmer featuring three all-weather greens and tees at varying distances and elevations.
These combine with a 28-bay two-tier covered driving range, indoor swing studios and pro shop with Titleist National Fitting Centre, TaylorMade Performance Centre and Ping and Nike Fitting Studio, plus indoor putting studio and outdoor chipping and putting greens, to provide a comprehensive game improvement centre.
