What the club says: There are three championship golf courses at The Celtic Manor Resort

The Twenty Ten Course: Built to stage The Ryder Cup in 2010, the course opened for play in July 2007. The first course to be built specifically for golf's greatest team tournament, it measures a robust 7,493 yards off the back tees and has a par of 71.

The Roman Road Course was the first of the Resort’s courses, opened in 1995 and was ranked ‘the top inland course in Wales’ by Golf Monthly Magazine. Overlooking the Severn Estuary with views across to Somerset and Devon, it was designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr and is named after the many Roman roads that criss-cross it, the design shaped to avoid disrupting any remains.

The Montgomerie: Designed by Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie, the course measures 6,371 yards and has a par of 69. The front nine takes as its framework the starting and closing holes of the old Wentwood Hills championship course which were not part of the plans for the new course for The Ryder Cup. The back nine has been created from scratch on land that previously housed the 18-hole Coldra Woods academy course.

Mud Mud glorious Mud

Absolutely disgraceful.These courses should not be open,we played roman road course first 20/3/20 and all it was was mud with trolley trails everywhere.
Montgomerie course slightly better21/3/20 but still needs closing.We we’re due to play the twenty ten course 22/3/20 but was informed that it was in just a bad condition so gave up and came home a day early..They only care about money

Don't bother until weather improves

Whole setup is a farce.

Course is massively under water. Is playable but only by causing loads of damage to it. Tee boxes and greens are fine, but the fairways were plugging every other ball, often to the point of not finding it, and it made it almost impossible to play at times as well as making the round a long one.

We soldiered on having driven 130 miles to play. Could have told us that it was like this (apparently been so since September) as we only booked a month before. Instead waited for us to arrive, took our cash, no refunds available only vouchers that don't cover the cost of the round if you wanted to go back.

£4.10 for a coffee in the clubhouse is outrageous and although the staff were lovely, they could also tell that they were basically getting by on other's goodwill not to kick off.

Twenty ten course design is good but some bland holes, and the location basically means any winter play unlikely. If it did not have a Ryder Cup history you would not say it was a special course.

Would have appreciated the call to let us know, and the fact we were then captive in the resort just added to the frustration. Cancelled next day and went and played Bowood instead on the way home. Better condition and a decent course. Will probably not use my £45 vouchers for the round we missed as it doesn't even cover the cost of another round.

Joke of a place that will soon be under financially not just water if it does not treat guests with more respect.

Amazing place

Went on a one night two rounds trip.
First day played the Monty course which was very wet (my own fault for booking to play in the winter) but a good course.

Played the twenty ten on the second day and what an experience that is. You get shuttled to the first tee where there is a practice area to use free of charge with a mountain of balls to knock about.
The course itself is varied and challenging, again it was wet but it didn’t bother us at all.
Got met afterwards with a gift of a personalised bag tag by the very helpful staff.

Only things I’d say are that you need a buggy or you’ll be feeling the after effects for days and also the drinks are on the expensive side, £10.75 for a larger and a coffee.

I’ll definitely be returning during the summer.

course was under water !!

The Roman road course is one of my favourites and as we were booked to stay at Coldra court we thought we should play despite the fact it had been very bad weather, they did say to us that if we anted to stop after 3 holes we would get a voucher, however we soldiered on but was pretty much unplayable on the fairways, spoke to some green keepers on the 12th and they were at wits end to know why the course was open, which was also our thoughts,, stopped on the 14th as we were all plastered in red mud !!

WET !

Just got back from a one night stay with 2 rounds of golf. We played the 2010 on the Saturday and the Roman road on the Sunday(only managed 9 holes) In my opinion both courses should be closed at the moment probably the worst conditions I've played in spoilt what could of been a good weekend, whilst I know it's winter golf the course should a least be playable ....... Trust me avoid if it's been wet !

Roman Road - Very varied course but VERY hilly..."gladiatorial" in p

Lucky enough to get a free round via my GolfCare insurance so used one of my 4 free rounds today. The Montgomerie was closed today for 1 day maintenance but Roman Road was open but very wet (currently they are closing each course for 1 day a week so do check ahead).

It was quite exhausting to walk with a trolley in the wet.I used Hedgehog wheels which helped not slip on the steep slopes but it is very hard work walking up the slopes - the worst was the 6th fairway to an elevated tee. And between some of the greens to the tees at 7, 10, 12, 14, 15 - none of them long walks but steep/very arduous and I consider myself a pretty fit 51 year old.

Some of the holes are really unique and stand out like the snaking down hill par 5 fifth, the par 3 7th is picturesque, the 10th tee and approach are magnificent, the approach to the 13th green is a sight to behold. But I really liked the new 16th hole - par 3 over water and the 17th with a snaking river running through the fairway (it's like the famous 18th at Jumeriah Earth course (see your TVs in January for the DP World in Dubai!) a cracker of a hole with a tee shot over water to focus the mind!

Will defo go back but will avoid if wet. It almost spoiled the experience......but i lost a few pounds just pushing my trolley/walking the course!

All the staff are so friendly from the starter/course marshal to the lady who stood at the clubhouse entrance to welcome you - a really nice touch!
