The Celtic Manor Resort

The Celtic Manor Resort, Coldra Woods, Newport, NP18 1HQ, Wales

As 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 Roman Road, The Twenty Ten Course and The Montgomerie.

There is also a world-class golf academy featuring a floodlit driving range, practice range, golf shop and teaching bays and two luxurious golf clubhouses, The Twenty Ten Clubhouse and The Lodge with its own bar, restaurant, health club and spa.

The new course, which opened for the first time in July 2007, is a par 71 measuring 7,493 yards. It features nine spectacular new holes that have been developed along the floor of the Usk Valley, as well as nine holes from the former Wentwood Hills Championship Course that have been extensively remodelled. The course’s signature hole is the par four 14th, which brings classic risk and reward dilemmas with lakes on both sides of the fairway, but there are several other holes, which can be considered to be equally memorable
