Celtic Manor Resort features two hotels: a luxurious 5-star resort hotel that is unashamedly modern in stature whilst those seeking a little more tradition can stay in the 19th century Manor House hotel. The resort has 330 bedrooms each beautifully appointed and decorated, with distinctive design and traditional luxury to create a calm and relaxing environment. All guest rooms have Queen or King size beds and spacious marble en-suite bathrooms with shower. There are five restaurants and several bars where you can indulge yourself with the finest food and drink and outstanding Welsh hospitality. Guests enjoy complimentary telephone calls to national landlines, high-speed Internet access and complimentary use of The Forum Health Club leisure facilities. Celtic Manor Resort is the host venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup and has three championship courses, a world-class Golf Academy and plenty of other activities to keep the body and mind distracted. There are 2 tennis courts, 2 health clubs, both with gym, and 2 luxurious spas, shooting, mountain biking and walking trails and for young families there is a children’s club and crèche, which should give plenty of quality time and space to both parents and the kids.

The Twenty Ten Course at Celtic Manor Resort opened for play in July 2007 and has already staged the Welsh Open. It is the first course to be built specifically for the Ryder Cup, golf's greatest team tournament. There are water hazards on half of its holes, it has six signature holes and presents many memorable tests and risk-and-reward dilemmas. One of the features of the spectacular new course is its variety. Many of the earlier holes having a links-like feel with some long rough and greenside swales, the middle section of the course then reveals the full extent of the lake-lined challenge. A tough finishing stretch culminates with a real sting in the tail at the 18th. (7493 yards, Par: 71) There are two other courses at the resort, the Montgomery and the Roman Road.

Royal Porthcawl has a magnificent setting sloping down to the seashore. The absence of sand hills usually found on links courses enables the golfer to see the sea from every hole with memorable views. With holes facing in all directions the player is tested by the wind and could need every club in the bag. King Edward VII bestowed Royal status in 1909. The course has hosted many amateur and professional events over the years, the Amateur Championship (six times), the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup, the European Team Championship, the Home Internationals (eight times) and more. (6885 yards, Par: 72).

Southerndown is a cliff top course founded in 1905. It has been developed over the years by five of the most respected golf course architects in the world, and it shows. Undulating fairways and tight lies give the course a downland/links character. Bracken and gorse punish wayward shots and on windy days golfers need to negotiate the hazards with care. There are many longer courses, but few with a finer set of par-threes. Equally memorable are the closing holes, usually played into the wind. The 18th in particular with its intimidating gorse and renowned split-level fairway will live long in the memory. (6449 yards, Par: 70).

Other Golf Options:

Pennard is often called the 'links in the sky' because, although it resembles a seaside links course, it is perched high on a cliff-top west of Swansea. This brings a double benefit to the lovers of links golf - the sand-based fairways offer the usual pleasures and its lofty position provides outstanding views. It is an excellent golf course and often plays host to big championships of the amateur game in Wales. Founded in 1896, Pennard was designed by the great James Braid whose skill is behind many of Wales' best layouts and it has been developed to meet modern needs with extended tees and improved fairways and greens. (6030 yards, Par:71).

Rolls of Monmouth Golf Course has an unusual history. The clubhouse is the former workshop and garage of the 18th century mansion, which was the home of Charles Stuart Rolls the early aviator, and motoring pioneer. He formed a partnership with Henry Royce and the first engine bearing their famous names emerged from those garage doors, which now form one wall of the clubhouse lounge area. The course is parkland and demands a wide range of shots and each hole has been designed to challenge each aspect of the golfer's game. It is designed in two halves, separated by a large wooded hill. This separation added to the 600 acres of perimeter woodland surrounding the estate, provides peace and tranquillity, which is only broken by the abundance of wildlife including deer, and waterfowl. (6,733 yards, Par: 72)
