The speed with which Celtic Manor has impressed itself on the world golfing scene is little short of miraculous. Less than seven years after it was founded in 1995, it was selected as the host course for The 2010 Ryder Cup.
Already one of the leading golf complexes in Europe, Celtic Manor opened the new Twenty Ten Course in 2007 - the first course in history to be purpose-built for staging The Ryder Cup. The Resort boasts three championship courses in all and a floodlit golf academy plus a 400 bed Five Star hotel and health spa and 10 luxurious Hunter Lodges, ideal for group golf breaks.
The spectacular Twenty Ten features water hazards on half of its holes and many more risk and reward dilemmas designed to create thrilling team matchplay during The 2010 Ryder Cup. Home of the Celtic Manor Wales Open until 2014, the Twenty Ten is a spectacular and exhilarating test for all standards of golfer.
