WLG WELCOMES CELTIC MANOR AS ‘HONOURABLE MEMBER’
Famed former Ryder Cup venue in South Wales joins the association
The Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, which created its Twenty Ten course specifically for the tournament in that year, has become the inaugural ‘honourable member’ of World of Leading Golf – a category designed for Ryder Cup venues or other destinations that have a special standing in the golfing world.
The resort, which opened only in 1995 and is set in more than 2,000 acres of panoramic parkland, has established itself as a world-class golf destination, with three championship courses: the Twenty Ten, Roman Road and the Montgomerie. The venue furthermore encompasses three hotels, a 330-room luxury resort hotel, a historic 19th century Manor House with 70 rooms as well as the 148-room Coldra Court; a large convention centre; two exceptional spas; two state-of-the-art health clubs; fishing; adventure golf; tennis courts; and a choice of eight restaurants. It even hosted a NATO Summit in 2014.
Considering the culturally relevant and naturally fascinating sourroundings between the Usk River and the Bristol Canal and coastline, the Celtic Manor Resort is a wonderful destination to take some time out – for golf and many other kinds of diversions.
