Golf courses

Roman Road Course

"An excellent resort golf course, don't be fooled by its shorter yardage, the Roman Road is a great test for all golfers"

There are not many Robert Trent Jones Senior designed courses in the UK, but Celtic Manor has one and it is a treat. Approaching 20 years of play, the Roman Road Course is mature and challenging, building a rich heritage marked with highlights including the 2005 and 2006 Welsh Opens. Expect an undulating test and wonderful views of the valleys around what is arguably the most society friendly of the Celtic Manor trio.

STATS

Par: 70

Designed by: Robert Trent-Jones Senior

Opened for play: 1995

Course Style: Parkland

Previously Hosted: All Star Cup (2005, 2006) - Wales Open (2005-2007)

Awards: Top inland course in Wales - Golf Monthly Magazine

TEES

White: 6,515 yards, Par 70, SSS 72

Yellow: 6,039 yards, Par 70, SSS 70

Ladies: 5,324 yards, Par 72, SSS 72

Signature Hole - No. 10: Par 4, 407 yards, SI 8

A brilliant par 4 that demands two carefully selected and well-executed shots. From an elevated tee players must choose their club wisely, with longer hitters who take driver in danger of running short of fairway. The second shot is played over a gaping chasm to a green some 40 feet below the level of the fairway.

Montgomerie Course

Celtic Manor’s connection with Colin Montgomerie began long before he led his European starlets to Ryder Cup victory in 2010; in fact, he puts his name to a championship layout that’s up there with the best UK resort golf courses. Like the Roman Road, there are a few hills to negotiate but the rewards include splendid views around the resort. From 2000 to 2004, the Monty welcomed the Tour’s best for the Welsh Open.

STATS

Par: 69

Designed by: Colin Montgomerie

Opened for play: 2007

TEES

White: 6,294 yards, SSS 71

Yellow: 5,863 yards, SSS 69

Ladies: 5,186 yards, SSS 70 

Signature hole - No. 3: Par 5, 609 yards, SI 5

This spectacular par 5 featured in our list of "Five holes you must play in 2014" and is arguably the best on the entire resort. Despite measuring a hefty 609 yards from the tips, the second half of the tree-lined hole plunges steeply downhill, making the green an inviting target to reach in two shots. Magnificent vistas over the Usk Valley and Twenty Ten course make make the hole as scenically dramatic as it is challenging.

Twenty Ten Course

The Ryder Cup was a new dawn for Welsh golf and the addition of The Twenty Ten Course launched Celtic Manor into the world’s golfing elite. That the course held up so strongly to the almighty deluge during Ryder Cup week is testament to the quality of its design and construction. Visit now, and you will be welcome to manicured fairways and lightning fast greens that mark The Twenty Ten as a genuine tournament standard experience.

And the experience is as much part of The Twenty Ten as the course itself; meet and greet service, shoe cleaning and access to the Ryder Cup locker rooms will ensure you have a day to remember. Just a few moments from The Twenty Ten Clubhouse is a purpose driving range that allows you to be loose and limber come the first tee, just a part of one of the most luxurious golf resort experiences in the country. 

STATS

Par: 71

Designed by: Collaboration between Ross McMurray (European Golf Design), Bob Jones and Robert Trent Jones Jnr.

Opened for play: 2007

Previously hosted: Ryder Cup (2010), Wales Open (2008- current)

TEES

Championship: 7,493 yards, SSS 77

White: 7008 yards, SSS 75

Yellow: 6570 yards, SSS 73

Ladies: 5654 yards, SSS 73

Signature hole - No. 14: Par 4, 413 yards, SI 2

This tricky par 4 sums up the Twenty Ten's lake-lined challenge, with two separate bodies of water to negotiate. Players have to choose between either a bold carry with the tee shot or else the approach. Most opt for an iron off the tee to avoid a watery fate to the left; while those brave enough to fly the lake can leave themselves a short, straightforward pitch.

Accommodation

The magnificent Celtic Manor resort is host to two hotels, and as a result can cater to the demands of all those who visit for a golf break.

The luxurious Resort Hotel is a top-class modern facility, whose 330 guest rooms are elegantly appointed and tastefully decorated, and the modern amenities are well complemented by traditional comfort. For a special occasion, choose one of the individually designed suites, or even a Presidential Suite, one of which boasts a baby grand piano. The Resort is home to an array of restaurants, including the superb Crown for fine dining, the Olive Tree and Merlins Bar.

The nearby Manor House is the perfect complement to the new hotel; since the early 1980s it has been recognised as one of Wales' finest places to stay, and was awarded Egon Ronay's top prize for five consecutive years. The 70 guest rooms and suites have retained the character of the 19th century property itself, which sits amidst beautifully manicured gardens. Inside the Manor, guests can choose to drink or dine in The Patio Restaurant, the Cellar Bar or Hedley's, the Manor Bar.

The Forum Health Club and Spa is an extremely exclusive facility, which offers the best in luxury leisure. The superb changing rooms each include their own steam room, jacuzzi, sauna and plunge pool, while the gym has 54 workstations, a dance studio, 20-metre infinity pool and a specialised children's club. The award-winning Forum Spa offers the latest in health and beauty therapy in its 16 treatment rooms, including Rasul Mud Ritual and hot stone massage.

The menu in The Crown fine dining restaurant is so impressive that Michelin star chef Jean-Christophe Novelli has endorsed it.

Merlins Bar offers delicious food from its bar menu and is a relaxing and stylish place to unwind and spend your evenings following a round of golf on one of the three stunning golf courses.

Golfer reviews

Best hotel we've stayed in for a golf break...

First of all, let me say that all twelve people had a great time with some glorious weather and no rain! As for Celtic Manor, one of our group thought beforehand that the Montgomerie course was a bit easy, but he has now changed his mind. Beautiful setting and the course had some wonderful holes. The greens were also some of the hardest to read and quite slick. As for the hotel itself, the standard of accommodation was proabably the best of all the hotels we have used for golf. So thanks for everything. Will be in touch soon for our next trip! Regards,

Great last minute getaway...

I just wanted to write a short note to say thanks for organising a great short break - Celtic Manor was superb, both hotel and golf. Your expert guidance beforehand and help in securing what clearly were the last couple of rooms and tee times at late notice was much appreciated. Many thanks,

Excellent service...

Please pass on my thanks to the team for the ease in which they organised my trip for 12 to the Celtic Manor last weekend. The Staff were a credit to the resort and service we received was second to none. Once again thank you all for all your help in making the weekend such a success, and please pass on my thanks to your 'Point of Contact' at the Celtic Manor. Regards,

Well organised break...

Just a note to say thank you for the time and effort you put into organising our weekend away a Celtic Manor, the amount of thanks I received from the lads that attended the weekend made me look good! The staff at the Manor were friendly and helpful and the guided tour of the locker rooms at the 2010 with the proposed plans for the new layout was a nice insight. Once again thanks for all your efforts for a smooth weekend away. Regards,

Brilliant golf break at Celtic Manor...

Just returned from Celtic Manor and had a brilliant time. It was very windy and had quite a bit of rain yesterday but this didn't dampen our spirits. Thoroughly enjoyed the courses and thought the hotel, club house and spa were FAB. We found the course a bit tough in places but a great experience, had a lovely buffet dinner and said breakfast was great too. Thanks for organising and for upgrading the rooms, they were massive and had balconies etc...

Great service and fine resort...

I would like to say on behalf of my wife and I what a wonderful experience Celtic Manor was, from the ease of booking with Your Golf Travel, to checking in and out. The package we bought was great value for money and the entire golf break went off without a hitch.

We played the Roman Roads course, and what a set up it is, the Lodge is a marvellous place, the course with its long wide fairways, lightening quick greens, a real test for any golfer. The long walks and some of the climbs make a buggy a must. I only wish we had more time, and played either the Montgomery or the 2010.

We had the pleasure of eating in Rafters within the 2010 club and it lived up to all of our expectations. The service was second to none and the food was exceptional. Along with fine wines, fine views across the course and over the Usk valley, it was a dining experience to remember.

We stayed at the Manor House and we found it to be more elegant and charming than the main resort, which can be a bit too busy for my liking. The choice of restaurants was amazing and all the staff were enormously helpful and polite. The room in the Manor House was an absolute delight and we thought the fact that the Manor House was connected to the main resort was very clever.

The spa was awesome as it was the perfect place to freshen up. This was much needed because the weather was great and we were all hot and sticky by the time we had finished! The plunge pool was a pleasant surprise and it really woke me up for the evening ahead.

I cannot thank you enough for your help, and the professional way in which you approached all my enquiries. We will be back next year and will hopefully play more than just the one golf course. The 2010 looks amazing so fingers crossed we can get on there!In my opinion Celtic Manor is one of the finest golf resorts in the UK and is a great place for a weekend golf holiday.

Many thanks

Blown away by amazing hotel facilities...

Well, I'm sitting at my desk at work wishing that I was back at Celtic Manor, or, back in bed sleeping off a tiring weekend golf break on the resort!

On our Celtic Manor golf trip we played the Montgomerie and the Roman Road, both for the first time and I thought they were both excellent golf courses. The fairways were lush and sprung under foot with virtually every iron shot giving up a nice, consistent divot. Fortunately I didn’t personally experience the first cut of rough too many times but when I did stray in there I found it to be lush and fair. It didn’t hinder your progress that much but certainly made shots more difficult to control. It always gave you a chance to get a club to the back of the ball...the way rough should be! If you were really off line the knee high stuff was very punishing but again, that’s the way it should be. The greens were fabulous. They were difficult to read but in terrific condition and very receptive to a nice, crisply struck ball when pin seeking. I'm not so sure that these two courses are suitable for a real beginner as they are technically challenging and also physically demanding. I would definitely recommend buggies as some of the walks between tees were a real struggle! As a package these two golf courses are perfect for a short golf holiday and I am eager to organise another Celtic Manor golf trip so that I can get a round in on the 2010 course.

What a fantastic venue the Celtic Manor Hotel is. My breath was taken away by the splendour and magnificence of the place; a truly 5 star establishment. It might be that I should just get out more but I was blown away by the building and all the facilities that are on offer inside. The staff were plentiful, helpful, courteous and welcoming. The rooms were very comfortable and stylish and the catering was outstanding. Of course being a popular 5 star golf resort drinks and food were a little pricey but they certainly weren’t extortionate. Considering the value for money of the golf break package we bought from Your Golf Travel we all felt like we didn’t have to worry about how much we were spending anyway!

The location of the golf resort is absolutely fabulous and it offers stunning views all around from all over the 2 courses and of course from the 8th floor of the hotel where we were accommodated.

The service from Your Golf Travel was on par with the value for money that you are offering and every aspect of our booking was handled in outstanding fashion.

3 enjoyable courses to play...

We went on a weekend golf break to Celtic Manor on a stay and play package from Your Golf Travel. I have to say this was one of the best weekend golf trips I have ever been on...I can see why Celtic Manor is so popular. I thought all the hype might have been down to the Ryder Cup and the 2010 course but the Montgomerie and Roman Road course are both fantastic as well and the facilities on the resort are great.

We scored better on the Montgomerie than on the others and as such enjoyed it a bit more! The third hole, which I think used to be part of the Wentwood Hills course, was fantastic. One of the most exciting par 5s I have played! Our round on the 2010 was hampered by strong winds and rain but we were determined not to let that spoil our round. The 2010 was a real challenge for our ability although my wife did bag a birdie! It would be unfair to describe the Roman Road course as a weak link but it definitely wasn’t as good as the other two golf courses. The condition of all three golf courses was great and on the whole Celtic Manor offers the total package for a weekend golf break.

We stayed in the Manor House which was nicely tucked away from the more lively Resort Hotel. We thought the lift that connected the two accommodations was a great idea walking out and up the slope to get to the spa, restaurant etc would have been a bit of a chore. We ate in the Merlins Bar and enjoyed a lovely seafood platter. The staff throughout the resort were great and all in all we had a wonderful time on our Celtic Manor golf trip.

The usual efficient, professional service from Your Golf Travel was received and we shall continue to book future golf holidays through you.

We'll be back...

Celtic Manor’s location just off the M4 near Newport makes the resort very easy to access, and from its prominent position overlooking the motorway impossible to miss. The Hotel is 5* and service starts when you draw up to the entrance and your luggage and golf gear is carted off to your room and golf storage room respectively. Valet parking also means no worrying about the car. The staff are very friendly and helpful and checking in is very straightforward. The room was a ‘standard type’ and had everything you would expect of a 5* hotel including air-conditioning, safe, mini bar, free Wi-Fi, bath robes, etc. Breakfast was included as part of the golf break package and was excellent. There was a massive choice to cater for any taste.

There are several Restaurants to choose from with varying prices ranges and all prices reflect its 5* rating. We ate in the Olive Tree Restaurant on our first night which was very relaxing and the food was delicious. On our last evening we ate at the Club House restaurant as we had finished our round of golf a little later than we had expected. The prices here were more reasonable and for a less formal meal we would recommend either here or the Merlin’s Bar.

The hotel is crammed with impressive facilities and we only wish we could have had more time to spend in the amazing spa.

On arrival at the Club house, and checking in with the pro shop for your tee time, you can (and should) spend time on the practice putting greens before going to the starter hut and again checking in. The Courses were in great condition and the greens were tricky; downhill putts were lighting and putting back up the slopes required a good old whack! The Roman Road is fine for carrying or trolleys as is not too hilly and most tees are in pretty close proximity to the previous green. The par 5 3rd has a daunting tee shot for first timers and the second shot is really good fun. You had better be striking your irons well as all of the par 3s are long. On the advice from everyone we spoke too, we took a buggy for our round on the Montgomerie course. I would certainly recommend it due to the long walks required from green to tee and the sweeping undulations that make the course a joy to play...just not on foot!

All in all Celtic Manor is a fantastic destination for a golf holiday or indeed a short weekend golf break and we will certainly be back.

Impressive service...

We have been doing our annual lads golf trip now for many years...usually we go abroad for the weather but this year we thought we would try the Celtic Manor after the success of the Ryder Cup last year. The thought of playing on the same fairways as the pros and trying to emulate some of their shots on the 2010 course was hard to resist.

We booked a three night golf break in the Resort Hotel and were set to play all three of the golf courses.

The Montgomerie was the first course we played and we thought it was a good course but a hell of a hike! If we had known we would have booked buggies. Still, if that’s the only fault we could find then it must have been pretty good in all other aspects.

We played the Roman Road Course on the second day and I have to say that I think this was the best course out of all three. The greens were some of the best I have ever played on but be warned...they were very quick when putting downhill and very slow when putting uphill. This meant it was tough to read the speed but we embraced the challenge and thoroughly enjoyed the round.

The 2010 course was last but not least. I started par birdie par and thought, “well...this is easy”. BIG MISATKE! Oh how wrong I was...the course bit back with narrow fairways and plenty of water, not to mention the rough and the sheer length of the holes. Best leave this one to the pros and the big hitters out there!

We stayed in the main Resort Hotel which was very welcoming and the 5 star service was excellent throughout. Breakfast was very nice and there was plenty of choice. Overall I would rate the Hotel at 8 out of 10 and the Golf at 9 out of 10...a great venue for a golf break in the UK.

Great value for money...

Having watched the Ryder Cup being played at Celtic Manor we decided it was time to book a golf break to Wales so see how we measured up against the pros. We actually ended up booking a golf break package that included only the Montgomerie and the Roman Road courses as the value for money was simply outstanding. Given the traffic that passes through these two courses they were in very good condition indeed. The layouts would likely necessitate the use of a buggy for most players, with the exception of the very fit. Whilst both courses are testing they would suit most abilities and both make for very enjoyable rounds.

The Clubhouse was very welcoming and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We had seen a lot of comment s about the price of food and drink but we didn’t think they were too excessive. It is a five star resort after all so it would be foolish to expect costcutter prices! Speaking of five star...

The Resort Hotel was amazing. From the rooms to the facilities and the service; everything was of the highest standard and we really enjoyed the entire golf break from start to finish. Relaxing in the spa was a particular highlight and was the perfect remedy for the aches and pains we picked up on the golf courses!

The location of the resort is excellent. Just off the motorway you will see the Resort Hotel sitting atop a hill so you can’t fail to find it from there! Our overall verdict of the venue was a solid 9.5/10 and as usual the service from Your Golf Travel was 10/10...Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly with a sound level of advice all delivered in an efficient, professional manner.

We will return for another break...

My three sons and I, all reasonable golfers, travelled to Celtic Manor on a Your Golf Travel golf break package. From the first encounter with the doorman through to checking out every member of staff was a credit to the resort. The hotel was very impressive, the condition of the two golf courses we played (Montgomerie and Roman Road) were excellent, and overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The one piece of advice we were given before we travelled was to use a buggy, certainly needed for the Montgomerie, and I would also recommend one for the Roman Road unless you have a reasonable level of fitness.

We would recommend trying the Lodge for dining, as the hotel restaurant’s, whilst serving very good food, can seem a bit soulless. Would a return visit be in order? I have no doubt we will be back in the future.

We'd recommend it to others...

We greatly enjoyed our golf trip to Celtic Manor and we thought the whole golf break was perfectly organised by Your Golf Travel whom we had used for the first time. The focus was on the golf and unfortunately the weather was a bit disappointing. All three courses were in good condition and despite the weather they were well worth playing and tested our ability to the limits. It was great to play the holes on the 2010 that we remembered from watching the Ryder Cup. There are photos dotted around the 2010 course which we thought was a nice touch. The staff were enthusiastic and they made us feel very welcome.

The Hotel was amazing and the facilities were outstanding. It was a bit quiet in the evening so we drove to Cardiff for a cracking meal and a few beers. All in all we would recommend Celtic Manor to anyone going on a golf holiday in the UK and we will certainly be back to book our next golf break with YGT.

Enjoyable place to stay...

We had a great time on our golf holiday to Celtic Manor and luckily the weather was on our side as well!

I’m afraid to report that the course beat us up so that’s 1-0 to the 2010! We will definitely be back for a re-match though armed with a new found respect for the rough and the raised greens! It is a cracking golf course and it was in great condition when we played it. We had been excited to play it since watching the Ryder Cup and I’m glad to say it lived up to expectations. We also played the Montgomerie Course on our golf break and having previously played some of the Wentwood Hills holes we were impressed to find that even these have been made more interesting! The rest of the course is great as well although I wish we had hired buggies as we found it tough going to walk the course...still that made our trip to the spa in the Resort Hotel all the more pleasurable!

The Clubhouse was pricey and we shelled out a fare bit for two sandwiches and coffee. There was not a lot of bang for your buck but the quality was undeniable. Same story for the evening meal in Rafters Restaurant. Still, the quality of the food and the friendly service was great and it considering the value for money we got by booking with Your Golf Travel we can’t have too many complaints.

The Hotel was great as always and the friendly and excellent service continued there as well. They really have the staff well trained and they seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs which is a huge plus.

Overall I would give it a 8.5 out of 10 - with pricing for food and drink being the only thing stopping me giving it full marks.

Smashing break, best we've been to...

Well to start with I'd like to thank you for organising our family golf break to Celtic Manor Resort; it was fantastic!

Where do I begin?! We knew the trip was going to be special and when we saw the hotel atop the hill while travelling along the M4, special was no longer the word...it was going to be epic! The hotel was amazing. All of the staff were really helpful and friendly. The rooms were a delight; really well set out with a lovely view of the welsh countryside from the balcony. There was an added bonus with staying that weekend because the Bolton football team were there too...we didn’t expect to see famous faces around the place! We even met some of the players who were wandering around which was really cool! We had lunch at Merlin’s Restaurant and were impressed with the menu...so much to choose from! I went for the chicken sandwich which was delicious! Everything on the menu was reasonable priced and the service of course was excellent.

With our tee time looming we headed off to the lodge to prepare for our battle with the course. As we got closer to the lodge we got a sense of the tradition and history of the place. So many top golfers had played here, be it the Welsh open or last year’s Ryder cup. Thinking of the players that graced the courses got us even more excited about playing them...it made us feel like professional golfers! As our tee time edged closer we got a little nervous but we all found the first fairway and were underway. We all played well and had a lot of fun! My dad made birdie on the long par five which made his day. He holed out from a greenside bunker and he hasn’t stopped going on about it to this day! The Roman Road course is magical. All of the holes were picture perfect and the course was in great condition. Offering great views everywhere you looked the course was a really good challenge and watching the sun set while we putted out on the 18th was special. We had a bite to eat at the lodge which again was reasonable priced before heading back to our rooms to rest for Sundays battle of the Montgomery course.

The next morning we had recharged our batteries and were ready to go again. Breakfast was really nice and with so much to choose from we opted for the unhealthy option. We checked out of our rooms and made the pleasant journey back to the lodge. With the early tee off time there were no spectators watching us drive from the first tee so no reason to be nervous and our balls hit the fairway. Again the golf course was challenging and the views were magical. We struggled a bit on the back nine but totally enjoyed our Celtic Manor experience.

We were all sad to leave but it will live on in our memories. As Monty said roughly a year ago," boy did Wales deliver!" With luck we will be booking a longer Celtic Manor golf holiday next year and we will be keen to play the Twenty Ten Course when we return. I will definitely book with you guys again...thanks again for a smashing golf break in the best golf resort we have ever been to.

Outstanding views...

Celtic Manor is a great venue for a golf break. All three courses are well worth playing and the hotel is outstanding.

The Twenty Ten is fairly tricky as you would expect, but play it if you can; even off a high handicap as there are some great holes and the overall Twenty Ten 'experience' is excellent. Valet parking, personal locker, shoe clean, shoe bag and free mementos all go some way to making the whole experience a special one and a highlight of a golf break at Celtic Manor.

The Roman Road Course is probably the easiest of the three courses but it’s definitely not easy! The greens are pretty much on a par with the greens on the Twenty Ten course and the layout is enjoyable. The par 5 3rd is a real gem of a hole.

The Montgomerie is very hilly and offers some great views, especially the views over the Twenty Ten Course from the 3rd green; another outstanding par 5. Again the greens were great but be warned...you need a buggy for this one! Some of the walks between holes are lengthy. The booking process via Your Golf Travel was faultless and thwe value for money on this golf break was brilliant. If you enjoy your golf and get the chance to go and play all three courses at Celtic Manor which is a top venue for a UK golf break.

Thanks again and I look forward to booking with you in the future.

Top marks for a top resort...

We arrived at the Celtic Manor Resort at 10:30am and proceeded to the golf club to see if we could bring forward our tee time. The golf shop assistant couldn't have been more helpful, he happily brought us forward from 14:10pm to 12noon, I had phoned to book buggy's for both days and we were given a complimentary first buggy, great start!

The view's from the golf courses are out of this world, the beauty of the surrounding countryside was breathtakingly splendid. From the Roman Road course there are stunning views across the hills and vales of South Wales. This course also gives you a full and fabulous view of The Celtic Manor Hotel. Views from the Montgomerie Course were even more sensational, walking down the par 5, 3rd hole, we were confronted by exhilarating views across the 2010 Ryder Cup Course. The back nine of this course give you a vantage of views right across the Bristol Channel to Portishead, brilliant!

The service all over the resort is amazing, especially in the Resort Hotel. From concierge, to reception, shops and facilities nothing is too much trouble and we were made to feel extremely welcome. The guest rooms are amazing, from the luxurious furnishings to beautifully granite tiled bathroom and shower, everything was of the highest order. Our dinner in the Olive Tree Restaurant was a three course extravaganza, with reasonably priced booze. We slept like babies in our very comfortable Queen-size bed and enjoyed a fantastic self service breakfast before teeing off on the Montgomerie.

10 out of 10.

Excellent hotel and we'll be back to take on the Twenty Ten...

As usual our golf break to Celtic Manor was most enjoyable and as usual the service from Your Golf Travel was top class.

This was my 4th booking through Your Golf Travel and my 2nd golf break at Celtic Manor. Everything went as smoothly as ever. We enjoyed the fantastic Roman Road and Montgomerie golf courses and the hotel was excellent. We love the relaxed atmosphere, the spa and of course the friendly staff members who go a long way to ensuring guests enjoy their golf holidays. Hopefully next time we'll try the Twenty Ten Course as we have heard only good things and we will be booking through YGT again of course!

Great resort - buggies recommended for the Montgomerie Course...

Thank you for an amazing weekend away at the Celtic Manor Resort. Both the Montgomerie and the Roman Road golf courses were fantastic and very challenging indeed. Both courses were in supreme condition and it was hard to pick a favourite hole although the par 5 3rd holes on each course were outstanding. We opted not to go for buggies on the Montgomerie but we wish we had! If we go back next year we will definitely be hiring buggies! The views from both courses were spectacular and we spent a short while gazing over the Twenty Ten Course from the 3rd green on the Montgomerie...definitely on our bucket list!

The staff members all through the resort were very friendly and professional. In fact we were given a complimentary upgrade as rooms became available in the resort hotel. The restaurants were all very good and accommodated us well although the drinks were a tad on the expensive side.

Your Golf Travel have been fantastic and I will continue to book my future golf breaks with you while recommending you to others.

Excellent value for money...

What a fantastic two days we had on our Celtic Manor golf break. The service was excellent, accommodation was great and as for the golf; it was top class!

On the first day we played the Roman Road Course which was very good indeed. I wish I could say the same for our golf but unfortunately there were no birdies and there were plenty snowmen on the scorecard! Never mind though because good fun was still had by all.

On the second day we played the Montgomerie Course which was an absolute monster! It was a good job we were feeling al little rough after our night in the Merlin Bar as it convinced us to get buggies which turned out to be a great shout!

Overall we had a great golf break in Wales and will definitely be back to book our future trips with Your Golf Travel. Value for money and a professional attitude is hard to come by these days but both were found at YGT!

Difficult to fault...

We have just returned from our short golf break with yourgolftravel.com to Celtic Manor. What a memorable experience it was! The venue is so easy to find being just off the M4. As a massive resort complex it may not be to everyone’s taste but it had a comfortable and relaxing feel about it...much more relaxing than other 5* resorts we have visited on previous golf breaks.

We played both the Montgomerie and Roman Road courses over the 2 days and were mightily impressed by both.

The Montgomerie was the more scenic of the 2 and the views particularly on the 3rd were breathtaking and without doubt the best I ever seen on a golf course.Being more hilly than the Roman road, and with more walking between tees, I would advise the use of an electric trolley or buggy on this course. Each hole was unique and a challenge for all levels. In a gale force wind and with weather warnings from course marshals we both managed some memorable shots and a few pars!

In contrast, the Roman Road is a more undulating experience with wider fairways but difficult approach shots and subtle slopes on all the greens. As expected the condition of the golf courses was excellent. My only niggle was the length of grass around the greens. I managed to lose 3 balls all within 5 yards of the green!

We viewed the 2010 course which also looked spectacular with lots of water and we hope to play it in the future.

We found the whole experience difficult to fault. From the excellent service from Your Golf Travel to the helpful course marshals at Celtic Manor it was a truly memorable golf break. I would recommend it to all golfers with a reasonable handicap.

Best golf experience I've ever had...

From the moment you arrive at the Twenty Ten Clubhouse you sense it's going to be a bit special. You get treated like golfing royalty, and the whole place just oozes class. The course is exactly how you'd expect, immaculate, tough, but very very playable. I've played a lot of top courses but this was quite simply the best golf experience I've ever had! (And it poured down for 2 hours!)

We booked Celtic Manor for the chance to play the Twenty Ten course, but we were very impressed with the whole experience. As you'd expect, the Ryder Cup course is an amazing experience, but it doesn't stop there. The hotel is superb (enormous!) and the rooms were really good. We played the Roman Road on the 2nd day and were expecting a come down after the Twenty Ten...how wrong could we be. Roman Road is a very very good course. Overall, the best value golf break from YGT bar none.

Memorable stay...

The general consensus of opinion in my group was that the courses at Celtic Manor Resort were great and the views stunning. I complimented a number of staff at the resort on the service which they provided, both golf related, and in the hotels, the bars and restaurants. I think the only criticism we would make is that the bunkers on both courses were very difficult to get out of, mainly due to the very solid base the thin layer of sand rested on.

The course layouts were good and challenging but made easier by the good weather. Maybe we are all getting older. We all thought that the cost drinks in the bars was somewhat excessive but the service was excellent. The approach to the complex and the location was excellent too. Overall we enjoyed our golf break and will certainly recommend the complex to others.

As for the attention to my queries from YGT, I was delighted and relieved when I raised the question of rebates for the players who were unable to attend and the funds were in my bank account when I got home. So my thanks go to Your Golf Travel and all the staff who helped to make our stay happily memorable.

Really good breakfast...

We had an excellent golf break at Celtic Manor! We had the pleasure of playing The Roman Roads and The Montgomery. The courses were in great condition from tee to green. Out of the 4 of us that played (handicaps ranging between 4 and 18) we all found The Roman Roads the tougher of the two courses. Placement off the tee was crucial as fairway bunkers seemed to come into play on every hole! Holes were varied with good individuality and presented a different challenge on every occasion. Clubhouse/19th hole - 'The Lodge' - modern with plenty of seating indoors and out, but the menu was too sophisticated for our liking at quite a high price. We would have been quite happy with your classic clubhouse snacks. The staff were helpful with directions and always did everything they could to assist.

The only meal we ate within the hotel was breakfast and we weren't disappointed. Great choice available of both hot and cold food, with fresh food coming out all the time. Plenty of staff on hand to assist. Rooms were basic but clean, well presented with everything needed. No Complaints! Also the hotel was incredibly easy to find!

My overall verdict - 9.5/10 the only reason for it not being 10/10 was down to the fact that we didn't book to play the 2010 course! I think this would have completed the stay. Having looked at the course and seen the club house we are definitely aiming to return in the near future to experience the 2010 Ryder Cup course (after a bit more practice). But a combination of blue sky, sunshine, and no wind over the 2 days helped to make a very enjoyable golf trip perfect!

As always it was a pleasure to deal with Your Golf Travel. The tee times on both days were perfect as it allowed us to have a leisurely morning on both days then still have the evening free to do as we pleased. I would definitely recommend YGT to a friend and I am already spreading the word of how pleased we all were and how Celtic Manor is by far the best resort within the UK any of us have been too!

Impressive service...

Celtic Manor was very easy to find and although check in was not until 15:00 our room was ready upon arrival @ 12:30. We took our bags to our room and were then transported by mini bus with our clubs to enjoy a coffee before teeing off on the Montgomerie course at 13:40. What an excellent course, well laid out and immaculately maintained. We were offered all the facilities of the 5* resort but were really tight for time as our dinner was booked in The Lodge, what excellent service we received the meal was spectacular and our table overlooked the 18th green on the Roman Road course.

We then returned by mini bus to the Manor hotel. The next morning up early for a sumptuous breakfast and then to check out before the mini-bus collected us and our golf clubs for our next round. During our short break the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Our only disappointment was our wall light was hanging of the wall, the toilet did not flush properly and there was no seal on the shower door so the floor got soaking wet.

As the course was busy we were teamed up as a four ball which was disappointing as my wife had booked this as a present and it would have been nice to play as a two ball.We would book through Your Golf Travel again but suggest if it is a gift for two you should be allowed to play as a two.

We'll be back to play the Twenty Ten...

Just come back from a one night golf break at Celtic Manor. Firstly I would like to say that one night was not enough. We played the Roman Road and Montgomerie courses and found both to be in immaculate condition with the greens deadly but fantastic. We had a buggy the first day on the Mongomerie course but found that as the buggy has to stay on the road there were several times when we had to walk a good distance to the ball only to find we had the wrong club and then had to decide to go with what we had or go all the way back to change. I would recommend if you are going to use a buggy to take a carry bag. The Roman Road course was my personal favourite with a few notable holes especially the 13th which doglegs out of view with a second shot through trees over water and onto a raised green, shame that I did not do it justice but enjoyed every minute.

We stayed overnight at the Manor House and it was every inch of its 4* rating. The bedrooms were comfortable and well appointed and the staff could not do enough for you. Breakfast was very good as was the bar meal we had in the sports bar the previous evening. The prices although higher then I normally pay at home in my local were not extortionate £3.50 for a pint of lager and £12 for a very nice plate of fish and chips. I must say during our stay I did not meet anyone who had a negative opinion of the facilities or staff and accommodation. I will definitely return as soon as possible and would look to play the 2010 next time. Service from YGT was immaculate.

Try dining at the Newbridge on Usk - great food...

I was given a Christmas present from the children - Golf for 2 people at Celtic Manor 28/29 March this year arranged with YGT. Took my 'best pal' with me and we hit that beautiful summer weather in March you might remember. It was an excellent foretaste for our recent trip with 8 people to the same venue.

In March we stayed only one night in the Resort hotel and played Roman Road and 2010. Both of us in our mid 70's found Roman Road very tiring - in the heat! - and opted for a buggy on the 2010 course which was a mixed blessing - great for some long walks between green and tee and very welcome at the climb to the 14th - but as they are banned from the fairways (understandable) club selection from a distance was at times frustrating/difficult.

Our group of 8 has been playing twice a year for 25 years - all over Europe and the UK. We were to have played Roman Road Montgomerie and The Vale but late in the day switched from Montgomerie to The 2010. I was greatly impressed by the efficiency of YGT in arranging this change and comments from the Group included 'One of the best trips ever' - fabulous hotel - great atmosphere - comfortable and well equipped rooms. We dined at Newbridge and enjoyed some excellent food, wines and service.

Celtic Manor must rank very high in the UK for pure enjoyment - the golf courses are 'challenging' and quite well kept. The Vale was considered by some of the group as the best of the 3 courses in terms of pure hole design and character - just left rather scruffy from some careless top dressing on the tees - but certainly not enough to spoil our enjoyment. Thanks for a great trip!

Already planning our next visit...

24 Ladies on a Golfing Trip - some might imagine this to be a nightmare to organise but actually when you use Your Golf Travel it is really easy! Of course it also depends where you are staying and I can thoroughly recommend Celtic Manor for a brilliant golf break. The 5* luxury tag really did live up to its name. The accommodation and food were excellent, 3 different golf courses to play, great leisure facilities, reasonable prices in the Hotel, a great welcome and numerous helpful staff on hand whenever you needed them. Best of all must have been the luggage service - everything is taken from your car upon arrival, bags go directly to your room and you never have to worry about your golf clubs again as they are always ready for you at whichever course you play and after playing the Twenty Ten they were also cleaned so ready to use when we got home! 10/10 for a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable golfing holiday - so much so that our Club is already planning another trip and this time we have been asked to include the men.

We were treated like Royalty...
Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic two days at the Celtic Manor.  From the moment we arrived, we were treated like Royalty.  The Service received from the golfing staff to the Hotel staff was superb.  We had two great Days of golf – on the Montgomerie Day one in glorious sunshine, culminating in “walking in the footsteps of the Ryder Cup Players” on the 2010 course, yesterday.  Albeit personally for me, it was more experiencing the Bunkers, and one or two water hazards!  My goal is now to buy the 2010 Ryder Cup dvd and go through my card!!  The key was, we were made to feel special, and that is testament to the hotel and your colleagues at Your Golf Travel. 
Very good service...

First of all I would like to thank Your Golf Travel for organising and arranging a great trip. 

The first surprise was that we all got upgraded to the hotel. Only issue was that no body from the hotel had told us, but that was a minor issue. 

The hotel staff were exemplary and very polite. The quality of food and the bedrooms was first class. The gym facilities were also fantastic. 

I can't speak highly enough of The Celtic Manor Resort and its staff. Everything ran smoothly and all the golf courses were in fantastic condition.

I would love to use Your Golf Travel again.

 




Will be booking again...

My wife bought me the trip for my 40th birthday present and I couldn't have wished for a better present.

We played The Roman Road course on the Monday. A fantastic course in superb condition, the greens were brilliant, quick but manageable. We had a downpour on the 8th hole which flooded the course and by the 9th green it was unplayable. However the pro in the shop has sent us out complimentary vouchers valid for a year, a nice touch.

We stayed in the resort hotel that night which was by far the best hotel I've stayed in. The food was excellent. We opted for the buffet, which we bought through you at a very reasonable price. The rooms were superb. We were moved to rooms with a balcony view as we were told ours weren't ready until 4pm, again a nice little touch. The only negatives for the hotel were bar prices £4.50 a pint of lager, and £7 to park the car overnight.

On Tuesday we woke up to glorious sunshine and headed for the Twenty Ten course. WOW!!!!!! Everything about this blew me away. The service was first class, to walk in to the locker room and have my name above Ian Poulters locker was brilliant! What can I say about the course...it was unbelievable! Massive credit must go to the ground staff for the immaculate condition of the whole course. There were so many amazing holes, its impossible to pick a favourite.

The communication from Your Golf Travel was brilliant. I WILL be booking this again.

The whole experience has been out of this world.


Best break we've been on...

Celtic Manor was a fantastic resort, and a very nice place to play golf! We played Monty’s course and The Roman Road, both fantastic courses in very good condition. The courses were well suited to all levels, but still provided a good challenge for us. Everyone at Celtic Manor was very helpful and friendly.

We were upgraded to the 5* resort which is amazing, by far the best hotel I've stayed at!! Dinner, beer e.t.c. was quite expensive, but you expect it from such an amazing establishment.

The service from your golf travel was fantastic, everything was taken care of for us. 10/10 for service and price of the trip! £79 for two rounds and bed and breakfast even without the upgrade is a great deal! The two people we were paired up with paid £40 more for same deal with another company, we definitely bagged the deal with YGT! 



Great hotel and service...

The venue was lovely, golf was awful, the course was far too hard for me, but still, it was nice to have played there.

I have stayed at Celtic Manor before but this time we were given a much larger double aspect room which was lovely. The staff at the Manor and the resort were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. We played on The Roman Road which was in lovely condition and very playable. Would definitely recommend Your Golf Travel to anyone, it’s great value for money and the service feels very personal.

Best golf break I've been on...
The hotel was really good but the whole experience of playing the 2010 course was well beyond even my high expectations. We were met at the clubhouse, our clubs were taken by concierge and we were greeted with a very warm welcome before we headed into the locker rooms which are complete with names on the lockers of players from the Ryder Cup matches. The course was in amazing condition with some of the quickest greens I've played on. Whilst I lost a couple of balls on the way round (including the water on the 18th), the course was very memorable and somewhere I'd love to go back to.
Forking out the extra money to play the famous Twenty Ten Course is well worth it...

We had a very good time at Celtic Manor earlier this week and wanted to say thanks to YGT for all your help with the arrangements...everything went off without so much as a hiccup.

The whole resort is fantastic but the highlight was, unsurprisingly, playing the Twenty Ten Course. The Ryder Cup layout is monstrously long and testing, with both bunkers and water on almost every hole. The weather was glorious and the whole “member for a day” type experience makes the Twenty Ten really stand out from the other two courses. As nice as they are, I’d say forking out the extra money to play the famous Twenty Ten Course is well worth it. 

Thanks again and we’re looking forward to getting in touch to organise our next golf break!

We were glad to finally tick the Twenty Ten Course off the list...

Celtic Manor is such a great venue for a weekend golf break. This was our third visit in as many years and we were glad to finally tick the Twenty Ten Course off the list! The Montgomerie and Roman Road Courses are excellent so we were very excited as we descended down the valley towards the famous Ryder Cup course.

The whole Twenty Ten experience, from the personalised name tags and tour of the Ryder Cup locker rooms to the welcome on the 1st tee and the subsequent round of golf really is first class and while the course isn’t the prettiest in the world, it’s really good fun to play and a darned good challenge that’s for sure!

We ate in the clubhouse immediately following the golf and then spent some time chilling in the spa in order to recharge the batteries for a night on the beers.

Guestrooms were very comfortable and the resort staff right across the board were really helpful and, more importantly, friendly throughout our stay.

When it comes to a combination of quality golf and value for money, I don’t think Celtic Manor can be beaten in the UK.

Both golf courses were a pleasure to play...

We opted for the Montgomerie and Roman Road combination on our recent golf break to Celtic Manor and couldn’t believe the value for money. A night in the charming Manor House, an excellent cooked breakfast AND two rounds of golf on a pair of really nice courses all for £79? Amazing.

Both golf courses were a pleasure to play, with a good variety of holes and slick greens, while the quality and quantity on offer in the hotel is outstanding. During your time away from the golf course there is so much to do. We'd recommend a quick visit to The Forum Spa though...this is the only way to wind down after a day on the course!

Thanks to Your Golf Travel not only for the amazing deal but for their professional and efficient service throughout the booking process. Top class from both Celtic Manor and yourselves at YGT!

Everything was as I expected and didn't disappoint...

The Twenty Ten Course at Celtic Manor was brilliant. It was in excellent condition for the time of year that we played it and very tough off the white tees at around 7,000 yards! It’s probably a good idea to consider which tees you play from carefully but the overall Twenty Ten experience is certainly recommended.  

The Roman Road course was also excellent. The greens were a little on the slow side but very true and overall layout was great!

Both clubhouses had very welcoming atmospheres and the service was excellent. Food and drink weren’t too pricey either so we were very pleased.

The hotel was brilliant with lovely guestrooms. We’d happily stay here again !

Overall I would give the trip a 10/10 everything was as I expected and didn't disappoint. The YGT service was great too and very helpful so thanks once again.

The condition of the courses and the magnificent views were breathtaking...

We had the most wonderful stay at Celtic Manor.

Both games of golf were superb but unfortunately our play was not, although there were the occasional good shots. The condition of the courses and the magnificent views were breathtaking.

Our dinner that night at the Lodge was delicious and breakfast the next morning was equally as good. Everyone at the hotel gave excellent service, contributing to a truly a memorable stay.

All in all it was a great experience once again...

Having visited the Celtic manor through Your Golf Travel last year, we knew we were in for a treat and were very much looking forward to it.

Arriving at the hotel after a 2hr 30min journey from Central London was great. In my opinion it's everything a hotel should be; welcoming, warm and replete with amenities, serving great food and with comfortable accommodation! We settled into a lovely meal in one of their great restaurants and then got an early night ready for golf the next day.

The Twenty Ten course; WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! The whole day is geared around your enjoyment and it's what I imagine a professional golfer feels like week in week out. Clubs are collected upon arrival and delivered to the first tee or driving range. The you’re shown to your locker and given a little talk about the Ryder Cup history and the team rooms...five star!

We were both lucky enough to be striking the ball very well however the scoring was a little more sporadic which points to the challenge of the course. It's a course that is so rewarding when you get a string of pars but will instantly punish you for bad play and you may lose a few shots on one hole if you get out of position.

All in all it was a great experience once again. I have booked three trips through your golf travel and each one has provided me with a great memory including a 15 man stag do to Portugal. I will always book my golf trips through yourselves and recommend you to all my golfing pals!

A pleasurable experience altogether...

An excellent trip. The Resort Hotel at Celtic Manor was amazing and we were very well looked after, with excellent food and lovely and clean guestrooms.

The golf courses were in excellent condition and we found the Montgomerie to be very challenging indeed!

We’d definitely recommend Celtic Manor to friends and found it to be a pleasurable experience altogether.

Absolutely first class...

We had an absolutely great time at Celtic Manor and could not have been treated better from the minute we arrived until we left for home; absolutely first class. I will have no problem telling friends to go here on future golf breaks and also to book with Your Golf Travel.

We were blown away by the resort on the whole...

We had a great golf break at Celtic Manor so thanks to YGT! The weather was kind and the service offered by your company was second to none.

We were blown away by the resort on the whole. Our bedroom was huge with a balcony overlooking the Roman Road’s 15th hole and the standard of the service in the hotel was fantastic.

All the golf courses were fantastic with the Twenty Ten in particularly good condition ahead of the upcoming Welsh Open.

We will certainly be returning again and would recommend Celtic Manor to anyone along with YGT or course!

Absolutely top class...

We played the Montgomerie and the Twenty Ten on our golf break to Celtic Manor and both courses have a fabulous layout and were in great nick. The 3rd hole Par 5 on the Montgomerie is one of the most beautiful holes I have ever played. Superbly framed by tall trees either side off the tee, then as you get down the hill you get the views of the valley and of the Twenty Ten Course; simply breathtaking.

The Twenty Ten is also brilliant. The holes with water are just visually amazing and also a great, tough test of golf. The greens were extremely receptive yet still nice and quick to putt on.

Very welcoming in the Lodge after the Montgomerie and the 2010 clubhouse is superb too. We loved the Ryder Cup changing rooms!

We stayed in the Manor House and the rooms were top drawer, with great service and an excellent buffet dinner in the Olive restaurant; so much choice and all delicious.

Overall: 9.5/10...Celtic Manor is right up there with The Grove; absolutely top class.

YGT were brilliant and our golf break was a bargain. We will definitely be using you guys again.

The course itself was simply fantastic...

We returned from our Celtic Manor golf break last week and wanted to say thanks as the break was excellent. The venue and rooms were sublime, and the course itself was simply fantastic. 

It was a lovely experience and everyone had a great time at Celtic Manor, so thank you for helping to make it happen.

If you have any other deals for next year that you think we might be interested in, please so send them through.

Couldn't fault any part of the trip...

We had a fantastic time at Celtic Manor and couldn't fault any part of the trip. The organisation and ease of booking offered through yourgolftravel means we will definitely use you guys again!

The golf courses were very wet following the recent rain but were still in good condition and certainly very playable. The Twenty Ten experience is one that we will remember for a long time. The tour of the clubhouse and Ryder Cup team rooms was a nice touch as were the free range balls and club cleaning after the round. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were always on hand to help.

The hotel is truly 5 stars too; a real touch of luxury and I might even be forced to take the wife next time! 

Overall the trip provided good value for money but be prepared to pay out for food and drink as it's not cheap anywhere within the resort. If you want a few drinks take advantage of happy hour at the Cellar Bar (17:30 to 19:00)!

Great venue

Nice hotel and nice meal. Courses a challenge and in excellent condition. Would've liked to see more water hazards (Montgomerie & Roman Road) and some can feel a bit samey. Service was exemplary. Rather annoying having to rigidly stick to paths in buggies. However, I guess this helps to keep fairways in good nick. Though sometimes, if your unsure, you have to trudge over to the other side of fairway holding four clubs to get your ball.

Immaculate course - great experience

You are treated as an important guest from the very first moment you turn up. Clubs taken and cleaned, car parked for you, all facilities shown and explained. You even get your own locker with your name on it. The hotel was also fantastic, but we went out to eat at a local pub. Great Brains beer and good value food (Hanbury Arms). £6 taxi each way. I'd thoroughly recommend visiting Celtic manor, but now I've done the Twenty10 course I wouldn't go back as I want to try other flagship courses.

My Caddy Tip - "Have a go at 16."

Handicap - 12

Everything was great

2010 is a great championship course. The other two are great parkland-type courses with a few spectacular holes. The resort is fantastic for a golf holiday- three courses in one venue and ample practice facilities. Easy to get around with the set up at the hotel and some excellent restaurants. I played Roman Road and Montgomerie on my first visit and wished I had included the 2010. 2nd time I played the Montgomerie and 2010. It's definitely worth playing if you're a <15 handicap.

For value for money it's hard to beat

The Roman Road and Montgomerie Courses are good, solid resort courses and while they didn't blow my socks off, playing them on such an affordable stay & play deal is well worth the money. The Twenty Ten Course is definitely the highlight of any trip to Celtic Manor so even with the added cost in mind, I'd recommend golfers give it a go at least once. The whole "member for a day" experience is built into the cost and makes your day a lot of fun.

My Caddy Tip - "Please book a buggy for us to use. I don't fancy some of the walks between various tees and greens, especially on the Montgomerie and Roman Road courses!"

Great courses

I played the Montgomerie on the 1st day followed by the 2010 on the 2nd. Both courses were fantastic to play, and although there were some holes beyond a mid-handicaps capabilities, it was fantastic fun trying them. My personal favorite hole was the 10th on the Montgomerie, suits a nice draw. The hotel was very comfortable and the food and bars were excellent.

The best venue I've been to

The hotel (5* resort), the 3 courses, the price, the service- everything was amazing. Loved the Montgomery and the TwentyTen course was phenomenal. I've been to the likes of the Belfry and Woodhall and they pale into insignificance. Bit gutted it's so far away for me because I'd love to go back. Went with my step father, mother and my wife, we loved the golf, the ladies loved the venue and despite the food and drinks being very steep it was well worth it. I want to go back so bad.....if you can't decide on your next venue, please please please go here, and play all 3 courses, oh and take a 60 degree wedge for the Twenty Ten bunkers...

I'll never go back

Every interaction with the staff at Celtic Manor was abysmal. They really don't care about the customers. The Montgomerie course is terrible- an amalgamation of an old course and a par three course- with walks between green and tee like you wouldn't believe. The pace of play on the Roman Road was so slow that we walked off after 9 holes. No one should go here. Ever.

Well worth a visit

Played the Montgomerie and the 2010 and was really impressed. The Montgomerie held some stunning views and was in really good nick. The whole experience on the 2010 was worth every minute of the drive down from London. From the meet and great at the hotel all the way down to the use of the practice facilities and then the post round reception including club cleaning, made you feel very privileged. Course was in top condition and brought back great memories of the Ryder cup.

Great hotel, service and golf

Play all three courses if you get the chance, as all are different, whilst still being challenging and in excellent condition. I preferred the main hotel, although restaurants in the Manor were good. Although I usually walk, I suggest you hire a buggy if playing all three courses, as sometimes it is a long walk between green and tee. This is Wales, so come prepared for rain. Clubs are well looked after by staff and will be dry ready for the next day's play. No drying facilities in rooms though, so bring 2 pairs of golf shoes.

Will go back, have been back

The 2010 course was a great experience. I found it great to walk rather than take a buggy. You have to think your way round the course as every hole has its own challenge whether it is lots of bunkers (2nd hole) or water, hills, slopes etc. Great halfway house and was very welcome at that point of the round. 18th was great as it was a challenge to land on the green and not roll back into the water or not over hit it and put it in to one of a number of bunkers. Clubhouse was great and had a great balcony to watch others attempting the 18th.

Nice hotel, great golf & good value

Although the Welsh weather was not kind to us, we still had a great time at the resort. It offers great value when compared to other venues around the UK that have hosted big events. For anyone who went to the 2010 Ryder Cup, playing the 2010 course is a must. It's amazing how many shots you remember seeing and how few you are able to recreate (other than the Mahan duff on 17!). Beware: The 18th hole is a very tough test on a wet day when playing into the wind.

It's simply 'The Manor'

Celtic Manor provides all you could want in a golfing venue. Stay at the resort if you can, rather than the older, but still very nice Manor. The Manor was once a maternity home and is steeped in local history so you'll still love the experience. The 2010 experience is fantastic; the course may not be the most beautiful you'll ever play, but remember who did what and where and you'll have a thrilling time. The other courses are very good; have a buggy for Roman Road. Many GPS devices are wrong on all 3 courses. Take a laser if you have one and buy a course guide.

Breakfast awesome

Roman Road was in nice condition. The Montgomerie was spoiled by traffic. It took four hours for nine holes so we walked off, back to the warmth of the jacuzzi. Buggies extortionate and a necessity for both courses. Hotel accommodation was great. Room was great, the spa was awesome, and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Evening meal at the hotel was a let down. Poor selection and quality, won't stay for the buffet again. I can only assume the a la carte menu was much better. All in all a pleasant stay but won't play the Montgomerie again.

I'd go back, lovely venue. Drinks and meals slightly expensive

The hotel is stunning and both the Montgomerie and Roman road courses are tough but fair. You might even get lucky with the weather. The Monty is my favourite with its dramatic elevation changes and it's always in tip top condition. The Roman Road has undergone some changes from when I first played there, but it hasn't done the course any harm. Everyone is friendly and helpful and I look forward to returning soon.

I am going back next week

I have been to Celtic Manor three times in small groups and think it is the best value for money resort. The staff go above the expected standard of service, the rooms are more than comfortable and the hotel is very restful. All 3 courses are challenging to the average golfer but I would not recommend a buggy. More trouble than worth as you have to stick to the paths and end up walking further. The hills on the Monty are very challenging for the not so fit. Going back next week.

Great course, very welcoming staff. A great 19th hole

We've played both the Montgomerie and the Roman courses. Personally I prefer the Montgomerie because there are some very scenic holes, a handful with spectacular views. However I'd advise anyone playing the Montgomerie, at least to take a trolley and better still to take a buggy. Some of the green to tee walks are very hilly. Overall Celtic Manor is a wonderful golf venue and the best testament to this is that my golf group, who usually never return to the same courses for our annual trip, have now been back to Celtic Manor for three successive years, and planning a fourth in 2016.

From the moment we arrived, the service provided by the staff in all areas was exceptional. The organisation was first class and the golf courses in pristine condition. My wife, who plays off 30, and myself both found all 3 courses an interesting challenge and particularly enjoyed the personal experience and excitement of the 2010. Room in the hotel was smashing, some fine bars and the course club rooms and the restaurants had a fine choice of quality food.

In contrast to other golf resorts that we visited on the same golf tour, every member of staff that we encountered during our stay was friendly, helpful and wanted us to enjoy every aspect of our time at Celtic Manor.

Montgomerie: very hilly, played with two members who guided us round, otherwise we would have struggled to place our shots in the right areas. A very slow round, 5 hours.

We found the resort hotel and its services excellent. The golf courses are fabulous and would suit all abilities. A buggy is a good option for all 3 courses but I'm lazy and like beer. The food is also top notch.

Great venue for a golf break

The hotel was excellent and there was a great atmosphere at the piano bar. The rooms in the lodge were first rate. The golf courses were a fair test of golf and the starter was extremely helpful. The clubhouse was welcoming and the food was very good. The practice facilities were good and the practice green is a good example of the greens.

Brilliant two days

The 1st hole on the 2010 course was my favourite hole because it was the start of a brilliant 2 days. Don't come with any preconceived ideas, and you will be pleasantly surprised. I could not fault anything about the hotel. We were well looked after throughout our stay and the food was smashing as was the service. I would recommend this venue to any golfer.

Fabulous course

This was a great golf break with a comfortable hotel. The staff at the hotel were friendly. I loved the golf at the 2010 course, you were made to feel like a superstar by the attention given on arrival. The course is tricky but possible to play if you keep your thinking cap on. It is a course which allows you to have fun but you need to navigate your way round it. I loved the water holes and the uphill and downhill ones. The 15th is a special favourite for me. The 18th is a cracking finishing hole where you have to hold your breath as you attempt to go over the water to the green.

My Caddy Tip - "Think before you play."

Handicap - 14

Great venue

The hotel was very comfortable and plenty of restaurants serving good food at them all. It's better to play the same course twice, as one needs to get the correct line from the tee. It's easy to take the line that appears right, but then find you're blocked out to the green. Buggies must keep the paths, so if your ball is on the other side of the fairway, take two or more clubs when you walk to it. The last 4 holes are particularly tough and if you can manage them in 2 over par, you'll have a good score.

Enjoyed playing all 3 courses with my son and this was a great experience that we shared together. The 2010 course was a fantastic experience but we also very much enjoyed the Montgomery and Roman Road course. The greens are true and a lot faster than we are used to. The driving range is also great as is the accommodation. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful which we appreciated.

I will definitely go back

All of the holes were very good on the Celtic Manor 2010 course. I would recommend golfers to play this course at least once, and after once you would want to play it again. The hotel was superb and the room I had was for just myself and it was fantastic. Spa and pool was beautiful. The only one downside to it was they take £50 on your credit card card for incidentals. They charged me more money for my evening meal than I should have paid because they said I should have paid for the evening meal on line, even though I had confirmation that I would be charged less which was on my invoice from yourgolf travel.

Stay on the fairways on the Roman Road course. The Montgomerie has some great holes and views especially on the 3rd. A buggy is a must to make the most of your day. Excellent stewarding as they kept us aware of an imminent storm and made sure we got round ahead of it. Overall, a great day of golf.

Golftastic

Hotel and staff were exceptional, food and service outstanding. We played on all three courses, the marquee course being 2010. However, all three are fantastic courses and I personally found the Roman Road to be the most challenging. The Montgomerie and Roman Road start from the main club house, views on the Montgomerie are fantastic though the course involves a lot of very steep hills. The Roman Road is a lovely course and the holes offer much variety but everyone wants the 2010, which surprisingly for the shorter hitting and higher handicaps proved very forgiving.

Made to play with two non golfers, It spoiled our round

Great Hotel (the main Celtic Manor Hotel). Everything was fabulous- food, service, rooms, etc. However, our trip was spoiled by putting two non-golfers to play with my partner and myself (we play off 13 & 17). This ruined our whole day. I suggested to the pro shop that they should at least ask people of similar handicaps to play together, but the two people had no idea at all. We felt we were holding the whole course up. These two hackers should not have been playing the Montgomerie Course at all, they must have lost about 20 balls each. No fun for us.

Great hotel, golf course ok but access with trolleys difficult and buggies not allowed on fairways

The room was lovely but they could up the food standards. For a hotel of this caliber the buffets were not first class and I would prefer waiter service and a proper dining room. The courses were lovely but had tracks for the buggy's which then meant taking clubs over to where the ball was. This was not ideal at all. We tried trolleys but again getting from the greens back onto the tracks was really difficult.

Fabulous hotel, food and golf

This is a must for any golfer. Fairways are long off the tee so you need to clear 200 yards from the yellows.

Good course, poor service

Really enjoyed all three golf courses. However the service and the staff were poor. 

1. Extremely slow play (they had 250 people on the Roman Road at one time, it took over 6 hours to get round despite the continuous warnings about slow play) 

2. Lost golf towel while our clubs were in their care and they did not seem the care and only replaced it after 2 days and a long conversation with the manager. 

3. Due to the golf round taking longer than expected we missed our dinner reservation and was told we could only eat at the bar as they were serving food until 9 pm. When we got to the bar at 8:15 pm we were told that they could not serve us any food and we had to order room service. This was not acceptable. 

4. Despite booking and having been confirmed as a twin room we were given a double which had to be changed. 

5. We were told check-in was at 12 am and 2 pm and when we got there they told us we would have to wait until 5 pm. 

6. We had booked a buggy for all rounds of golf. We were told they would cost £32 when we booked these over the phone. However, we paid different prices each day. £30 the first, £34 the second and £36 the third. Inconsistent. they did not seem the care and only replaced it after 2 days and a long conversation with the manager.

I have been to Celtic Manor 3 times in small groups and think it is the best value for money resort. The staff go above the expected standard of service, the rooms are more than comfortable and the hotel is very restful and comfortable. All 3 courses are challenging to the average golfer but I would not recommend a buggy, more trouble than worth as you have to stick to the paths and end up walking further.

Something for everyone

I've been here a few times with large groups, couples and corporates, each time I visit The Celtic Manor I'm always impressed by the service and quality of product. The Roman Road and Montgomerie are decent courses in their own right and well worth a round, especially if you have a mix of handicaps in your group. Off the back tees they are a real challenge and you have to play well to get 36 points. The Twenty Ten experience is as they bill it, an experience. You are made to feel very special as you make your way into the grand clubhouse and get yourself ready to take on the course. The lockers have the Ryder Cup players from 2010 on them so you can have the likes of Rory, Tiger etc as past users of it. The course itself is a real championship layout with a mix of length and strategy needed to get your way round it. Off the tee it is quite demanding with long tee shots needed to make headway on holes like 2, 4 and 8. The closing stretch of 15, 16, 17 and 18 are as fun a 4 holes as you'll get to finish your round. Have a go at 15 to drive it in 1, do a McDowell on 16 and hole a putt for birdie, duff a chip like Mahan on 17 and err hit in the water on 18 like me. Hotel is nice, bars are good (Merlins or the Cellar Bar at the Manor House) and there are plenty of different restaurants to suit whatever your group wants. All in all, Celtic Manor is hard to beat in terms of a UK golf break.

Hotel was fantastic (as per other members in the party). The hosts were brilliant- looked after our needs and also provided separate room for the presentations etc. Sadly I had to leave early as my father was taken ill.

Handicap - 24

Great venue, great courses

Really enjoyed our stay at Celtic Manor. Reminded me of a Vegas hotel it was so big! Excellent facilities and a great couple of days despite the terrible weather. It did play ball when playing the 2010 course though, glorious sunshine! Definitely would recommend a buggy for 2010, large distances between green and tee.

My Caddy Tip - "Get the buggy, and use the practice facilities at 2010 course."

Handicap - 28

Definitely will return

Superb hotel and facilities, everything catered for. Get a buggy if you play the monty.

Handicap - 10

I'd go back but only for the 2010 course

Montgomerie course was unplayable and marshals admitted this. Despite only being a 3 ball we were behind a junior 4 ball so the round took over 5 hours and wasn't marshaled at all. We werent allowed to upgrade to an empty 2010 course either. Roman road was a very basic course but still a challenge. However, the hotel and the food were fantastic as was the sports bar and happy hour. Buggies ripped leather and tired looking, and was surprised it was still classed as 5 star.

My Caddy Tip - "Play the 2010."

Very good value

Much prefer the Roman Road course. 2010 is somewhat too difficult for mid to high handicapper, just a long slog. Also, much prefer the Manor Hotel, which is much more homely and comfortable. Rafters Restaurant is a must, particularly for dinner.

Third hole on the Montgomery is brilliant. Celtic Manor is a great venue not only or the golf but also the ambiance of the place- the rooms are clean and tidy, the spa and sauna are well looked after, the food in the restaurant is at a high standard and I just love the breakfast. I would recommend this venue to my friends and family.

Stableford Score - 37 points

Handicap - 8

Great venue which tests your game

Enjoyed playing the 2010 but its a long course and it makes you think where to aim and lay up to ensure you hit the greens. The rough can be punishing when it's wet so don't miss the fairways. Everything from the practice range, staff and accommodation was perfect. We also sampled the evening buffet meal option which was exceptional in terms of value, quality and quantity. This venue should be on everyone's to do list.

My Caddy Tip - "Greens are true and fair."

Fantastic experience

Played both 2010 and Montgomerie courses. Great feeling just knowing the Ryder Cup was played on the 2010 course and you're walking in the footsteps of the professionals. Little touches made the day special, i.e. your name on the locker in the changing room on the 2010 course. Everything about the hotel was excellent, well maintained, big rooms, clean and tidy, etc.

My Caddy Tip - "Hire a buggy for the Montgomerie Course."

I'd go back for sure. The Twenty Ten course was very tough but enjoyable

The food at the hotel was excellent, as was the service.

My Caddy Tip - "Take extra care on reading putts. The greens are true, so if you miss it's a miss read."

Stableford Score - 33 points

Handicap - 22

Enjoyed the 2 courses I played

Played the Roman Rd and the Montgomery which I enjoyed, with the exception of members bombarding us with golf balls whilst on the green. Nothing was done to resolve the problem. The service in the hotel was far short of the 5 star supposed rating- I wrote a detailed complaint about the hotel which included the golfing incident and the overcharging at final billing, none of which were resolved by Celtic Manor. I would recommend anyone to go and play the courses as they and the green keeping staff were excellent and many of the peripheral staff also. Do not however, be fooled by the Hotel 5 star rating as it fell exceedingly short of that rating. It would have been wonderful if Celtic Manor had offered some reparation for the substandard service experienced during my stay that unfortunately destroyed what would have been a very enjoyable golfing break had it not been for the aforementioned unfortunate issues.

My Caddy Tip - "Carefully plan your approaches to greens."

Stableford Score - 38 points

Handicap - 14

It was an absolutely great place to play golf. Staff are great and the courses are great too. Lovely food and an all round great atmosphere.

2010 amazing

2010 is incredible, tough but fair. Both other courses are very good. Nice to have a few beers in the Lodge Cellar Bar, although they need to sort Sky Sport out. Meal in main clubhouse was really good. Breakfast at Lodge had really poor service and quality, but this in no way spoilt the weekend. It's a 'must visit' for all golfers.

Stableford Score - 29 points

Handicap - 7

Absolutely loved it and will return again

The whole resort is set up to make the average golfer feel special. The Montgomerie course was my favourite, even over the 2010, but all 3 courses are memorable. The hotel and leisure facilities are superb and the food just topped it off. If you are a club golfer looking for the ultimate golfing experience, travel to Celtic Manor, you won't be disappointed.

My Caddy Tip - "Think your way around."

Stableford Score - 32 points

Handicap - 16

Tough 2010 course, great accommodation and food

2010 course too tough for 18 handicap and over, Montgomerie ok. Roman Road was also tough but all the courses were enjoyable.

Stableford Score - 29 points

Handicap - 17

Tough courses

We enjoyed the hotel and its facilities but playing all three courses on three consecutive days in winter conditions was not a good idea for people of our age.

Handicap - 14

Back in a shot

This was a truly first class occasion, for all of our group. The welcome on the 2010 and the day was excellent but it was a true test and no-one came close to their handicap.

My Caddy Tip - "Hit straight not long."

Stableford Score - 28 or less points

Handicap - 18

Ok when dry

Absolutely chucked it down and we had force 8 gale! Played 6 holes on 2010 and were then able to take a rain check and get an adverse weather voucher so we could go back. Went back a year later and got rained off again. Course was in pretty good condition given the amount of rain. "Rivers" through the greens though on Monty course. Another voucher issued, although they didn't cover the full cost and you still have the cost of a buggy that isn't refunded. Good to receive them though. Hotel good.

Stableford Score - 31 points

Handicap - 13

Whole party travelling thoroughly enjoyed the golf on 2010

2010 is a fantastic golf course. We were a group of mainly single figure handicaps and were allowed to go off back tees. Awesome! Accommodation was great and the welcome and service in the smaller Manor House was far better than the hotel we stayed in on a previous trip. Each time we have travelled a mile down the road to eat at The Bell at Caerleon- excellent little pub restaurant. Call in advance to book and the hospitality is ace.

My Caddy Tip - "Walk to the practice ground at 2010 and soak up the atmosphere as you walk down to the 1st tee."

Stableford Score - 33 points

Handicap - 1

Must go back

Golf, rooms, food all excellent. Only downside was that buggies have to stay on the paths. Played Roman Road and four holes of the Montgomerie and then torrential rain got to us.

Handicap - 33

Walk where your idols walked

Superb facilities with 2 brilliant courses. Get a buggy for the Montgomery course as it is extremely hilly. You are made to feel special by all the hotel and golf staff. Extremely good value for what you get, already thinking about returning. Food was superb too.

My Caddy Tip - "Play to your ability, don't bite off more then you can chew as these courses can spit you out."

Stableford Score - 32 points

I played the 2010 and the rough was like a hay field, not fun.

I'd go back but not for Roman Road

Resort hotel excellent. Would prefer to play 2010 course next time however. The Roman Road course did not flow, but enjoyed the Montgomerie!

My Caddy Tip - "Play percentage shots"

Stableford Score - 29 points

Handicap - 18

Millionaires golf

Played Montgomerie and Roman Road courses with this year being our 4th consecutive year and the quality of the courses was better than ever. Have played the 2010 course twice already and whilst more expensive it is worth trying at least once for a great experience on a very tough course. The 2 we played are still a real test of skill, especially the greens which were lightening quick and if you're in the rough it would usually mean a lost ball, even when quite close to the fairways. The views on the course are fantastic and at this time of year it was fairly quiet so plenty of time to enjoy the round and not feel rushed by following groups. 

The resort hotel is excellent, although drinks and food expensive - but it is a 5 star hotel. If open, try the cellar bar where they have happy hour sometimes and a decent value menu - sports screens all around, a pool table and darts board. Unfortunately when we went the french rugby team had secured the venue and other parts of the hotel for their own private use. This was not advised to us at the time of booking and was a great disappointment. The hotel staff were clearly embarrassed and apologised profusely, and it was obvious they were fed up with having to apologise over and over again to every visitor to this bar and restaurant.

My Caddy Tip - "Very fast greens."

Stableford Score - 28 or less points

Handicap - 20

Not one of the best courses I've played

Didn't really have any favourite holes. I know it was early in the year (mid march), but the course was quite waterlogged. Even though the month before was quite dry, I don't feel a urge to re-visit. The hotel was fine, all staff were friendly and very helpful. My only tip is "If you think a 6 iron is needed, use a 5".

My Caddy Tip - "Use a higher iron, distance is deceptive"

Handicap - 34

Three fantastic courses, fabulous food and a great welcome

Playing the 17th par 3 on the 2010 course was a great experience as was remembering G Mac closing out the winning score of the 2010 Ryder Cup. Still feel the excitement of it today and every time we return to the Celtic Manor. Must try the fish and chips in the bar area after a round.

My Caddy Tip - "On 18th on the 2010 ensure you aim left of the green and get it there."

Stableford Score - 33 points

Handicap - 14

I'll 100% be going back next year

1st hole on 2010 was very nerve racking but brilliant at the same time, pictures by a professional photographer on the 1st tee while taking your shot was awesome. My advise for anyone who wants to play there is to get a course planner out of the pro shop, as this will save you shots. Hotel was second to none, fantastic 5*. Spa was also amazing, food was great, beer was pricey in the main bar but there is a sports bar on the complex which was a great little find that also does food.

My Caddy Tip - "Attack the greens as they stick when they hit."

A very tough test of golf, but fair

The twenty ten course for me. Every hole is a challenge, you have to be as straight as possible and try to keep it on the fairway. Hotel was excellent and we were we'll looked after. The food was very nice. 24 of us went and no one complained and we have some moaners in our group.

My Caddy Tip - "Hit more club than you think."

Stableford Score - 32 points

I'd definitely go back

First time playing the 2010 course and the raised greens with 'run-offs' got me a few times! Will play again and score better hopefully. 5* service all around. Had evening meal at clubhouse- fantastic food. We will be back!

I'd love to play the Montgomerie course again and try the 2010 Course. Not such a fan of Roman Road

Hotel was spot on. The Montgomerie Course had some great views, particularly the par 4 hole that plays directly down hill.

Great in many ways

It was great playing the 2010 (Ryder Cup) course. Great course; great food (and cocktails) on the night we stayed; great advice from the staff ("don't bother with a buggy on the 2010 course as only the last few holes involve climbs") - in other words just great!

Stableford Score - 30 points

Brilliant venue for golf

I would go back without hesitation, good hotel even if you are not golfing. You are very well looked after, buggies loaded up and waiting for you. The course is amazing with fabulous views and spectacular holes, especially the ones over the gorges (take plenty of balls). The only downside is that if you go in winter not all the restaurants are open.

My Caddy Tip - "Take care on the steep slopes."

Stableford Score - 35 points

Looking to go back very soon

You get a very small taste of what it must be like being a tour pro when you play The Twenty Ten course. Great hosts at the Celtic Manor. Couldn't find fault anywhere.
