Golf courses at Celtic Manor
Roman Road Course
Designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr, the Roman Road is the oldest and probably the most natural course located at the world-renowned Celtic Manor Resort. Over the years the entire resort has earned a name for itself in terms of quality and customer service, and the Roman Road Course is no different. With breath-taking views across the Severn Estuary and Somerset, this course is a great addition to your next golf trip.
Twenty Ten Course
A round of golf on any of the golf courses at The Celtic Manor Resort is guaranteed to be an exciting one and a great test for all golfers. Not only is The Celtic Manor home to the superb Twenty Ten Ryder Cup golf course, but it also boasts other stunning championship golf courses which each hold a different challenge to suit all types of golfer.
Designed by Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie, the first and last holes of this challenging par 69 parkland golf course were based on the foundation of the original Wentwood Hills golf course, with the land from the old Coldra Woods Academy course being used to construct the fascinating layout of The Montgomerie. Featuring deep pot bunkering and some tricky greenside swales, this golf course has plenty of natural hazards and an “inland links” feel to it
