Golf Courses at Celtic Manor Resort Hotel 5*

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.

Course Information

Par 70
Designed by Robert Trent-Jones Senior
Opened for play 1995
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 SSS 72
Yellow 6,039 yards SSS 70
Red 5,324 yards 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.

Course Information

Par 69
Designed by Colin Montgomerie
Opened for play 2007

Tees

White 6,294 yards SSS 71
Yellow 5,863 yards SSS 69
Red 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 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. 

Course Information

Par 71
Designed by Ross McMurray, Bob Jones & 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 7,008 yards SSS 75
Yellow 6,570 yards SSS 73
Red 5,654 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 at Celtic Manor Resort Hotel 5*

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.

The Resort is home to an array of restaurants, including the superb Crown for fine dining, the Olive Tree and Merlins 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.

Very expensive and we ate in the Rib Smokehouse and Grill restaurant and this was very pricey for 4 of us. Service was very slow at the merlin bar as well and people kept jumping in to be served! We went as couples and ended up having to have single beds again after we asked for a double bed and nothing was done. All in all a below average stay for a supposed luxury resort.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Ryder Cup course at the time played is overpriced and over-rated, living very much on its history. I'd never go there again at this time of year, if ever. There is just too much foot traffic when it's damp, I can't remember bumpier greens at any other championship course.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was a great golf break with a comfortable hotel. The staff at the hotel were friendly.

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.

Great venue, everything about the place is immaculate. The Roman road is a good test of golf too.

Bought this as a gift for my mother for mothers day. Me and her played the golf and then my father stayed the night with my mother. Course was great and my parents said the hotel was 1st class. Definitely recommend the Celtic manor.

Great golfing experience

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. The choice of food at breakfast was second to none, and really set you up for the day. We had a really great time, thank you.

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.

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.

The Ryder cup and Roman Road courses where excellent and tough. We should have pre booked our restaurants. Our only choice was the buffet, and that wasn't that great, but that was our own fault. Drinks at the hotel are typical of any venue miles away from another bar, so we budgeted for this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

Nice golf course and hotel

We would be interested in a night away, our friends are not golfers but wouldn't mind a night away if the price is as you say! (Retired Scots). We stayed there last year and it was a very nice venue.

3 great courses

Went early in the season during April. All three courses were a pleasure to play. Definitely worth the trip down from the North West. If you haven't been don't hesitate. It's golfing heaven!

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.

Great Break

I thought the Montgomerie was a great course, but the Roman road needed some care. Overall though, a great golfing experience.

Have been back several times

My favourite course is the Roman Road. Definitely get a buggy for the Montgomerie. Hotel great for non golfers as well.

Excellent service will definitely go back

The whole experience was excellent from arrival to departure. The staff were completely helpful throughout and should be commended. The golf was good too.

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)!

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.

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.

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!

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.
