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.

Too hard

Amazing hospitality, just too hard for this 23 handicapper. The welcome you receive is second to none and the practice facilities are superb. Personalised locker in the Champions changing room made it very special.

Great views testing

Although on the card it does't look that long, some of the green to tee journeys mean it's an 8 mile walk with some steep inclines. Great course,emphasis on accuracy off tee.The 605yd par 5 is makeable as steep down hill after drive. Greens have subtle turns so need to be hitting aproch close to score well. Back 9 plays easier but rough still punishing if miss fairway. Take a buggy if not restricted to paths.

Great Course, loved it.
Some holes look easy but you do you have to pick yourself round to stay out of the traps. Really well set up. Course knowledge obviously massively helps. A few holes I put a ball where I thought was good to get up there and realise I needed another 30 yds or should have been 30 yds shorter

Great course, tough wind got to try again.

I played the 2010 today on my own, i returned to the sport earlier this year after 4 years and despite probably hitting a few thousand range balls i have only played 3 rounds, 98 100 and 106. I think the experience is certainly better suited to group golf.

I arrived at the front of the club house where i was checked in and clubs and trolley taken to the practice area. I was shown in the direction of the changing rooms and told they were all free to use, i got Jim Furyk's. I picked up a shotsaver which was well worth the ?6 even with a skycaddie SG5. The complimentary practice area was really good and quiet. Range staff were friendly and invited me to tee off early so he could spread a few of us out as it was quiet. The range though was a lot windier than the Celtic Manor Academy range i had just come from. 7 Iron was travelling 150ish but at 2010 i wasn't even making 100 yards.

Wind assisted the first two holes were playing a little easier 260 and 240 yard drives, normally about 220. Missed both greens but chipping on and two putting both isn't bad for a 28 handicapper. Against the wind the 3rd and 4th weren't so easy. 4th driver tee shot 170yards straight. Is it always this windy here? Wind assisted i hit my all time longest drive of 280 yards on the 5th and hardest hole, GIR and 2 putt par. After 13 holes of the back and forth with or against the wind things went bad on the 14th with 4 shots to get from under the lip of a bunker. The walk to the 15th though is an up and down nightmare at this point i like to think this aided my pull left shot off the tee and complete balls up of the following holes. 16th tired at this point i mistakenly tried driver off the deck for second shot, i can play this shot well at the range. Worked well only the fairway, beyond the large bunker blocking my view wasn't quite where i thought it was. 17th par 3 is a pig if you go right ground drops away with double stacked bunkers. Bogey and then the final hole. At this point i started to wonder is the negatives of having a golf buggy stuck to the path for the first 14 holes outweighed by the hilly nature of the final holes. I was wrecked. Another short into the wind tee shot, i hit all clubs high. This time driver off the deck was a good straight second which i then hit a fat shank into the rough. Chipped out easy pitch over water and again another slog pushing trolley up a hill before 2 putting for a 104 round. First 9 was 48 so disappointed by back 9 score. A young lady took my bag to the front of the clubhouse whilst i collected my shoe and engraved golf bag tag. All for a whopping ?69.

In short the fairways and greens were great bunkers are large, i think the wind got me over a few that were in range and kept me short on opposite holes. Course is a real test or at least i thought so. I have previously many years ago organised a Golf monthly game at the London Golf club, both in my opinion are equal on quality with Celtic making more of a show of a few water hazards. Would i pay the morning tee price of ?161 no but at ?69 i might make this a once or twice a year treat. I have played both other Celtic manor courses and whilst i prefer the 2010 there isn't much in it.

Mr Chris long

A testing course but unfortunately made worse by the fact it took 5 hours to get around, we were only a 2 ball and our golf was ruined because of the waiting around on every hole.

Not as good as it has been.

Good course but poorly maintained. Greens full of bobbles and tee boxes were bare in places. Bunker sand varied massively. Not good enough for a resort with this pedigree. Last few holes now don’t really work as displaced by car parks and archery centre. Feels like golf is less of an investment priority now.
