Celtic Manor’s Twenty Ten Course is arguably the biggest step forward in the history of Welsh golf. The first course ever to be designed specifically to host a Ryder Cup, The Twenty Ten did not disappoint, seeing an epic victory for Europes and providing now-iconic images of golf’s best players battling it out in the rain. The course more than held its own under the monsoon that fell that weekend, still maintained to that epic standard today.
The Twenty Ten Course is now a bucket list course for many golfers in Europe and rightly so, a round here is thrilling from start to finish, invoking those Ryder Cup memories as you walk in the footsteps of legends. However, it is not just the course, but the experience that makes The Twenty Ten so great, being met as you arrive, given your own Ryder Cup locker and shoe cleaning after the round are just some of the things that make it a special place to play.

The oldest course at Celtic Manor and a firm favourite among UK golfers, The Roman Road was designed by Robert Trent-Jones Senior, opening for playing in 1995, when Celtic Manor was a smaller hotel. Since then the course has mature to one of the best in Wales, hosting the Welsh Open for a number of years. While The Twenty Ten brings people in, The Roman Road is well worth playing in its own right, a great day on any golf break to Celtic Manor.

Designed by Colin himself, The Montgomerie Course channels all the experience of the Ryder Cup legend, producing an outstanding golf course. The perfect compliment to the Twenty Ten, that opened the same year, The Monty plays very differently, an undulating layout that affords golfers fantastic views over the Welsh countryside. The deep pot bunkers come into play often and lend a links type feel to the track. The course makes for an exciting round, although it hosted the Welsh Open for a number of years, can be played by golfers of all levels.

Great hotel breakfast fantastic staff very friendly and helpful will help you definatly be back
Average given the quality of golf courses on offer
Excellent faculties and service was wonderful- we stayed in the older Manor House which was adequate, but obviously not as high tech as the main hotel
The Manor provides comfortable accommodation with a good breakfast and a good "Cellar Bar" in the hotel. Shuttles to the other parts of the resort are convenient and regular.
This place is amazing and had everything, most staf are very helpful. There are loads of restaurants and bars and the rooms are excellent. The only bad thing would be the prices. Its very expensive for drinks and is like being in the centre of London. 4 drinks cost me £25, so I'd highly recommend drinking and eating in one of the near by towns rather than here
very good accommodation, friendly and helpful staff, although charging £6 a night to park at the hotel is a a bit of a liberty, there isn't anywhere else to park.
Great place to stay only thing was the pizza in cell bar where not good
In room 112. Dated, tired and looked my Nan's house in 1985. I was expecting Derrick Accora to jump out the wardrobe at any minute. It might have been a 4* in 1985, certainly not now. Premier Inn is cleaner, more modern and functional. Shame!!! It needs a refurb. Stayed with my wife in January the room was better but still tired
Absolutely fantastic hotel. Very impressed by how pleasant and friendly the staff are, everything was very professional, clean and you could tell it's a 5 star resort. The rooms were big and we had a great view over looking the Roman Road golf course at the front of the hotel. There was also air-con in the room which was needed as it was a very warm few days!
Annual golf tour Just fantastic facility. See you all next year
Hotel was fine (once they corrected the beds to make them two singles as we were a group of men). Last time we stayed there, parked in open-air free car park which is now a building site. You have to park in the main underground car park for £15 which I thought was excessive and quite a trek from the hotel.
Rooms in the Manor House not up to it anymore. Shower pressure almost non existent and in one of our rooms the water stopped altogether leaving my father in law covered in soap and his head in shampoo. Not good while in your 70’s. Breakfast was ok. Lift and lift lobby area on our floor very tired and scruffy.
Just back from a fantastic stay at Celtic Manor, we stayed in one of the lodges on site which are spectacular, the lodge has four great sized rooms, and an amazing area for sitting around for dinner and in the evening. We made full use of the hot tub and steam room in the lodge to relax after the golf. The lodges overlook the Twenty Ten course which is a great view. I can’t speak highly enough of the lodges and am already planning to go back.
Almost exclusively 5 stars except the room was so warm. As for he golf experience it was second to none the staff were really helpful and friendly
Second Time in the Manor House great stay staff brilliant extremeley helpful
My wife booked the trip for myself and my father in law and what a fantastic time we had, couldn't fault the facilities what so ever amazing experience you have made my father in law a very happy old man Thank you Gordon Burrows
Golfing fiasco! Just returned from an overnight family break booked with yourgolftravel .com. We have stayed at the main hotel several times and also in the Hunter Lodges. We were staying at the manor house this time which is a little tired decorative wise but rooms service, breakfast all fine. My husband and son were booked to play golf on the 2010 the first day and the Roman Road the following day. All fine until they turned up for their round at the Roman Road course. The day before, as they came off the 2010 course, the staff offered to clean their clubs and deliver them to the Roman Road ready for the next day. Service you would expect from an establishment like Celtic Manor. My husband said they were even attaching the red label to his clubs whilst they were still on his back as he was walking in. Fab! Next morning they turn up at the Roman Road course 20 minutes before their tee off time and not the recommended 30 minutes, naughty naughty, but they were relaxed in the knowledge that their clubs would be waiting for them only NO GOLF CLUBS. Obviously the staff had to do a bit of chasing about to locate their clubs which meant they missed their tee off time. This was sorted but they were chastised by a staff member in white t-shirt with white hair who told them "well you should have got here sooner". The clubs duly turned up via shuttle bus with the driver removing them from the bus saying "well we weren't sure which course you were playing". So there was no explanation and no apology. The clubs weren't cleaned and the tags had been removed bizzarely!! My husband and son aren't the type to complain and I think in the moment they were just relieved to see their clubs safe and sound but on reflection after their round they quite rightly felt annoyed about the whole incident.
Never a 4* hotel. It's 3 at best. It's tired and looking dated now
It is generally a very nice hotel, great setting on the outskirts of Newport. Most of the staff are incredibly nice and welcoming. Beds are not the most comfortable.
Nice a comfortable rooms after a long travel.drinks expensive but just what you expect in these hotels.
room very good,could do with a bar that you could just get a snack and some chips,at a reasonable price?
I resent having to pay £15 for parking per night. Residents should never have to pay for parking. Also the hotel put a pending change of £50 on our cards. These two factors took away from the experience.
Sorry, your filter options returned no results.
Slightly easier than Montgomery but still a good challenging course very enjoyable
Great course for average handicap players hard because very wet
An excellent test of golf
We stopped at the ninth after being held up and taking just over 3 hours to the ninth - there did not seem to be any policing of the slow golfers - including us there were 5 groups playing/ waiting / waiting on the ninth at 3 pm so we gave up
Wonderful set up but the heavy rain had turned the fairways very claggy and unpleasant however greens were fantastic
Lovely course but 100% get a buggies it's very long from some of the holes to holes other than that beautiful course
The 2010 purse is an experience you have to try. It's truly breathe taking. I would like to say it's a very long course but is probably easier with push trolleys as pully trolleys are hard work and buggies are difficult for you have to stick to the path so there is allot of back and forwards. That being said you can understand why they don't want them on the course.
Get your climbing boots on but what a fantastic course
Another good golf course, a shame buggies were restricted to the paths considering the weather and how dry the course was. Abit of a pain having to go back and fore sometimes carrying a few different clubs to your ball. A very long walk between some of the greens and tees so I would advise a buggy on this course more so than the 2010. Still a great course and challenging!
The 2010 course was amazing. I was very impressed by the condition of the greens and the speed. It's a fantastic course, long in parts and some great views. Disappointing that they have moved the tee right on the driveable par 4-15th, this was a great signature hole when you could have a go for the green but now you're blocked out by trees. Still, a great golf course, really good condition and a good walk!
Only one word Supurb
Enjoyed every minute Be back next year at the latest
Pity about the buggies only using the paths which are quite a distance to the sides.
Course was in excellent condition with stunning views. I thought it was harder than the 2010 in places even though it is shorter. Several drives through gaps in trees or over thick rough/jungle. Greens had been sanded recently (has to happen) and had more slopes and undulations than the 2010 course. Organisation prior to round was excellent (got 2 free buggies because one hired trolley ran out of battery playing the 2010 course). Really good challenge and well worth a visit
Course was in immaculate condition - fairways, greens. Very long course and tough but fair. Facilities on arrival were superb - very well organised, lockers with names on, transport to practice area/first tee, complimentary bag tag at end of round, bags/trolleys moved to main golf complex for the next day's round. Should be on everyone's bucket list
Great day and always love playing this course. Greens were very very fast too. Hats off to the green staff. Great job.
Apart from the rain at the start, we had a great day. The course was in tip top condition and the greens were perfect, pity the golf wasn’t as good.
Probably my favourite course as it resembled some of the courses I’m and used to play on. The highlight of the course has to be the Par 5 third hole which is beautiful from start to finish and apparently in Seve’s top 100 holes. The greens didn’t appear as tough or as quick as the other two courses, but you still have to carefully manage your way around the course. I can’t wait to get back and play it again.
Spectacular Spectacular Spectacular, from start to finish what an experience, the moment you arrive at the club house you are greeted by a member of staff who takes you to your own locker, whilst explaining where you need to be at what time, a minibus takes you down to the first tee where complimentary balls await on the driving range. The course was in fantastic condition as you can imagine, carefully positioned bunkers. I’d love to play it again, however this time without the 25MPH winds, and now I know the layout of each hole, too many times a perfectly hot shot would pitch before a green and roll back into water or run out of fairway into a hidden hazard. A course guide should be a must, and if you don’t score well, don’t beat yourself up, it’s designed with pro golfers in mind. (Those where the words of a member of staff on the course) And even after a long difficult round, it’s made even more special by a complimentary personalised Twenty Ten gift upon your completion on the round.
This a brilliant course although my golf wasn’t quite up to it, I play off 24 and I felt the greens and pin positions were too tough, We played in torrential rain and the greens were still lighting quick, even with standing water on some parts, and I just felt that the pin positions could have been put in slightly easier positions.
Probably the most interesting course to play on
A good day out
Quite demanding physically but really enjoyed playing it
On a par with the Montgomerie but a different kind of course can be unforgiving if you get it wrong :) still excellent though
This is the ultimate in golf courses it is brutal on a normal day but the wind was up wow amazingly tough but a joy to play. It was an experience that few golfers ever know and it makes you realise How good the pros really are. We had a pro playing with us this year His comments " Its the best course Ive ever played or will ever play" Excellent
For some reason the course was harder than other years we think due to weather but still excellent
What a fantastic experience to play such a remarkable course this was a memory I will take to the grave awesome.
Real difficult test of golf this 1
See main review.
See main review
This was great treated like a king and great golf I will be back open golf with traps and water an amazing day golf
Very slow play left after nine holes.
Enjoyed the round, nothing amazing, but enjoyed playing the course
Thought this was a very good and testing course. Hit it straight and you have a good round in the making but veer offline and you find trouble as it should be. Greens have a lot of slope and the pin positions on the day made putting a real challenge (but a very enjoyable one!!)
The staff at the Twenty Ten were great with us as we were late for our tee time having had train delays from London. The course had drained well given the deluge of rain in the previous few days. The par 3's over water were very enjoyable. The bunkers are well positioned off the tee in most players' landing range.
Very nice fairways to hit off if you miss the fairways the grass was a few inches long could easily lose your ball but a greatime course to play
Just like the Montgomery bad weather before we got there with the course been in the lower grounds fairways were soft everything else 1st class
With the weather been very wet the weekend before we got there the course was playing very long with no run the only problem we had was the bunkers had not been racked.buggy good idea on this course.
great day ,would love to play the course again,would take different lines off some of the tees.greens were great fun.cheers pete.
course was a good standard,we are all low handicap players so we all enjoyed the course.
The pace of play was very slow. The group behind always came up to our tee when we were teeing off. The ranger should stop groups from encroaching on players like this. It was very off putting.
