Roman Road Course
at Celtic Manor Resort

Newport, Wales

Roman Road overview

Designed by Robert Trent Jones and host venue for the Wales Open from 2005 to 2007, the Roman Road championship course takes its name from the ancient east to west highway of Roman Britain crossing its fairways to the nearby fortress town of Caerleon.

Bordered by woodland, this challenging track features some long, open fairways but also a number of twists and turns, through trees and across streams and a lake, as well as some treacherous sloping greens. The Roman Road has previously staged the Wales Open and the Wales Senior Open, and it is also the home of the Celebrity Cup event.

The Greenside Grill provides a scenic breather overlooking the 10th tee before the back nine plays past the majestic Resort Hotel and back to the impressive clubhouse.

Signature Hole

The par-five 5th hole lives long in the memory with a good drive required to avoid trees jutting in from the left and a bunker on the right to reach the first corner of a double dogleg. From here, you can decide whether to shoot for glory over the old oak tree that guards the second dogleg, or plot your way carefully around it to pitch into a two-tiered green.
