Celtic Manor Golf Club and Resort

This special creation at Celtic Manor for the 2010 Ryder Cup was well received by the professionals who played on it in the Wales Open - though some remarked that it was a lot more 'American' than some other top-flight British courses.

On a year-to-year basis, however, it has served to enhance the quality of golf offered at one of the finest golfing facilities in the UK.

These now include The Twenty Ten, the Roman Road, and The Montgomerie Courses.


There is also a world-class golf academy featuring a floodlit driving range, short game and putting practice facilities, an outstanding pro shop and two luxurious golf clubhouses - The Twenty Ten Clubhouse and The Lodge with its own bar, restaurant, health club and spa.

THE TWENTY TEN COURSE
Built specifically to stage The Ryder Cup in 2010, it opened for play in July 2007.

The first course to be built specifically for golf's greatest team event, it measures a robust 7,493 yards 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 this spectacular new lay-out is its variety with many of the earlier holes having a links-like feel with some long rough and greenside swales, before the middle section of the course reveals the full extent of the lake-lined challenge.

A tough finishing stretch culminates in a real sting in the tail at the 18th.

GOLF FACILITES:
The new Twenty Ten Clubhouse has been purpose-built for The 2010 Ryder Cup and will be a fitting venue to host the world's top golfers.

Members are treated to the most exhilarating and spectacular panorama of the course and an enviable view of the final hole from a private balcony which wraps around the building.

Features include:
- Secured gated entrance and valet parking on arrival
- The atmospheric Rafters Bar and Restaurant
- Private Members' Lounge
- Luxury locker rooms with their own lounge and open fire
- Pro Shop and Spike Bar

Dress Code:
All members and visitors are required to wear smart casual clothing at all times. Denim clothing, trainers, Rugby or Football shirts and tracksuits are not permitted.

The Lodge: High ceilings, wooden beams, open fires and comfortable sofas make The Lodge one of the most luxurious clubhouses in Europe.

It offers a superb brasserie restaurant, two bars, a dining terrace overlooking the 18th green, function rooms for private dining, conference and banqueting suites, a Dylans Health and Fitness Club and The Clarins Health Spa.

There are luxury locker rooms with marble showers and a dedicated golf reception, with a Golf Services Team to help with equipment and buggies.

The Golf Academy: The Celtic Manor Golf Academy is one of the best facilities of its kind in Europe. It provides comprehensive tuition options that are amongst the best available, with a team of coaching professionals always on hand.

Brush up your skills at its 28 bay two-tier driving range or take a lesson in one of its swing studios. Facilities include practice greens, short play areas and a Academy Pro Shop with a Custom Fit Centre and equipment hire.

Celtic Manor's new Short Game Practice Area was opened in May 2009, three pitching greens made from artificial turf and three tees, all with grass and artificial turf options, meaning the facility can be used for practice and tuition in all weathers throughout the year.

Pro Shops: The Celtic Manor Resort offers three Pro Shops situated at The Lodge, The Golf Academy and The Twenty Ten Clubhouse.

These offer a wide range of golf clothing including branded merchandise for The 2010 Ryder Cup and Celtic Manor Wales Open. It has the latest ranges from Tommy Hilfiger and Greg Norman. They also offer a wide range of top name golf equipment and corporate gifts.
