Montgomerie Course, Celtic Manor
South Wales, Wales
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 and with The Montgomerie course being all downhill, it certainly makes it a tough but exciting test of skill.
Golfers playing on The Montgomerie golf course can expect spectacular views and breathtaking tee shots over the valleys, certainly making this championship golf course one to remember, with the most memorable hole being the par-four 10th, with a lake just before the green.
