Play the Ryder Cup Course at Celtic Manor

The new course designed for the Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor is finally ready to be unveiled! This is the first course to be specifically designed for the Ryder Cup.
Celtic Manor are now offering an exciting opportunity for golf fans to experience the course first hand. With weekend packages from £470 per person the details are on the official Celtic Manor website The package includes three nights accommodation, a round of golf on the new Twenty Ten course, breakfast and some goodies. I can only imagine that there will be quite a rush to play this course (if only for the bragging rights!) so I would advise you to book early to avoid disappointment.
The new Ryder Cup Course, which replaces the old Wentwood Hills course, is a stunning 7,493 yard, par 71 course. The players are faced with 70 bunkers and four lakes as well as six signature holes. There are nine of the original Wentworth Hills holes included in the course and nine brand new holes. The course makes extensive use of the valley, using the hillsides to provide a panoramic amphitheatre from which to view the entire course. The management hope to accommodate up to 50,000 spectators at each match.
This course is the culmination of the vision of Terry Matthews to bring the Ryder Cup to Wales. The task of designing and developing the course was a mammoth undertaking costing £16M with over 1 million tonnes of earth and rock used to fashion the course.

    would like to buy a round for 2 people to play on this course as an xmas present. At the moment I am not sure when they would want to play, is it possible to buy a voucher for this and take it from there.

    Hi there is a real shortage of places to stay at the moment and as soon as most accomodation is put up on accomodation websites its gone.Its going to be difficult the closer it gets.The newest and most publicised web site is they also have rooms to rent instead of full homes so it works out cheaper.
