Twenty Ten Course, Celtic Manor
South Wales, Wales
The first of its kind, this golf course was specifically designed by Ross McMurray for the 2010 Ryder Cup. It opened in 2007 and measures an impressive 7,493 yards off the back tees and has a par of 71. Set in the dramatic Usk Valley, this golf course will provide your golf game with variety and challenges, from more ‘links’ like holes to challenging water hazards.
This golf course at Celtic Manor was more than worthy of hosting the 2010 Ryder Cup. The Twenty Ten golf course is the first course in history to have been designed specifically to host golf’s most prestigious tournament, The Ryder Cup.
It includes no fewer than six signature holes and was designed to provide a challenge to the world’s best golfers in match play conditions, where risk-taking is essential to getting a good score. The particularly difficult 18th hole will push golfers to the limit, with a long sloping fairway and a river just in front of the green, making chipping accuracy to be an essential skill.
