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.

Wow this golf course is nothing like you would imagine when they say its the 3rd of the three courses-you think oh its probably poor, short and boring. You couldn't me more wrong if you tried!
We played on Monday 22nd August 2011 as part of a golf society. The staff were great at the clubhouse and very friendly and welcoming. The course was very hilly and i would not fancy walking it (unless i was striving for an all over workout!). The only hole on the course i thought was slightly dull and uninspiring was actually the first, some of the holes-the par 5 3rd hole is just amazing and so rare to see which makes for an interesting round. Tee offs were excellent, fairways nicely cut in and the rough fair but tough in places. The Greens were in lovely condition but they are quick and i mean really quick (practise on a glass surface before you play!) which is my main gripe; the course does have a linksy feel to it as you cannot hit a ball onto some of the greens and get any spin which means it runs off and to try and play chip and runs on some of the holes was nigh on impossible which left you feeling a little well, how do i play it?
The 9th hole has an amazing drinks/food hut which is really welcoming and the layout never feels compact.
All in all i really do believe that Celtic Manor has a great course here and to say its the 3rd doesn't do it justice-dont forget to practise your chipping and putting and if your walking make sure you warm your calves up!!!! - Aug 23 2011

Amazing. If you are ever considering visiting this place do it.
Course is great fun, lots of water too!
The whole experience is a really good day.
The wind can pick it making it play hard and long but this is what you would expect from a Ryder Cup/European Tour venue. - Jul 12 2016
Golf Course Reviews for Celtic Manor Resort Golf Club
Wonderful place to enjoy a golf away day - course challenging but fair and clubhouse facilities second to none
(Round played: May 2018 - Score: 108 Handicap: 20.8)
The weather was awful and the course really muddy but we chose to play despite being offered a weather get out! We did'nt regret the decision. This is an experience, not just a round of golf, we were treated like VIPs throughout, had free tees, practice balls, a souvenir bag tag and were driven to the first tee.
My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and although we are relatively new to golf, it was tough, but not so tough to put us off playing again in better weather.
Well worth the money and the drive!
(Round played: Apr 2018 - Score: 93 Handicap: 17.1)
Appreciate the weather has been bad but the course was in poor condition. I would say the fairways had not been cut for 2 Weeks, in fact you couldn?t even make out where they once were!
Have said this was always a good little course for the money but now other places such as Tall Pines down the road are offering 18 holes for as little as ?16 it?s difficult to make an argument that ?13 for 9 holes here is good value.
The name "Montgomery Course" is really a bit of a misnomer for eight of the first nine holes are from the old wentwood Hills course, the other of these being a fill in Par 3. Its not until the 10th that new holes are in evidence, and these being on the site of the old Codra Woods course.
The Montgomery as it stands now is the hilliest and most exhausting of the courses at Celtic Manor, and in truth, if you are not of a certain age and fitness, a buggy is a must have - its not just the hilly nature of the land, but in some cases, marathon walks twixt green and tee. The downside of this though is that unless you play Mid summer, you have to stay firmly attached to the buggy paths, and that at the end of the day means an extra long walk anyway, just getting from buggy to ball and all that. Played in the middle of a very wet winter, but thankfully on a nice day, the ground was very very wet indeed, and more than one ball was lost in the middle of a fairway, embedded somewhere in its own mark.
As for the design of the course, well 1,2 and 3 are the openers of the aforementioned Wentwood Hills course, with the 3rd being that very noted, very long steep downhill Par 5 with panoramic views of the 2010 layout down in the valley floor. After this, you turn back uphill on the last few holes of the original course. It must be said that other than the huge walks between holes, the holes themselves are attractive, all different and other than the damp underfoot, were all very playable. After the halfway hut and the new holes as, I presumed, the ones designed by Monty continued the theme of every hole being different and a number being blind and hard to know where you are going. I did in fact enjoy these later holes more than the front 9 as they seemed more in a continuous flow, and were a bit drier underfoot. Overall, course wise, challenging, and probably too tough for the longer handicapper, attractive holes, all different, but as a whole, exhausting, and if played in damp conditions, are pretty darned muddy in places.
The clubhouse is a typical American type, and is quite attractive, but mortgage is needed for any thing in the proshop, and the catering well, OK, when it comes - our group didn't even get served for 45 minutes after we sat down, and then same again for it to appear - good when it came, but sadly, very ineficient.
Would I go again, certainly not in Winter, and probably not in Summer either as it thence becomes pretty costly all in all. If I returned, well probably only to play the 2010 again, but not the Monty. And finally, a really piffing course marshall had great delight in trying to belittle us saying that we were 30 minutes down on the usual time, to which our reply was that if we didn,t have to spend half a day looking for balls in the middle of a saturated fairway, then we would be well on time - this efficacious person was very annoying and got put into his place by a couple of our group who were Club captains and one County official - truthfully, there is no need for people like that on any course, and is probably the main reason that Celtic Manor "Montgomery Course" is now a " been there and done it venue - many more better ones out there still to play.
