Celtic Manor Resort

Celtic Manor Resort
From its' beginning as a residence of the high sheriff in 1634 to the Manor House of 1860, once a maternity hospital, the manor was remodeled in 1982 into a hotel and became one of Wales' highest awarded hotels. In 1992 construction was started on a new 400 room hotel and two Robert Trent Jones golf courses and was finished in 1999. To host the 2010 Ryder Cup the "Twenty Ten" course was built. At nearly 7500 yards it features nine dramatic holes routed through the Usk Valley and nine re-fashioned holes from the original Wentwood Hills course. This new "non-traditional" course has holes with a links feel; a lake lined middle section and elevated closing holes.
There are two other tracts at the resort-The Montgomerie and the Roman Road- a course with captivating and challenging holes. Robert Trent Jones called this property "a bit of Augusta, a bit of Florida, and a lot of Wales.
Conwy-Golf-Course

The mountain backdrop, verdant, sometime narrow fairways and tiered greens, offer ample opportunities for "risk/reward" decisions.

Harlech Royal St. David's

Founded in 1894 its' history, mountain views and sea "breezes" define this links course that occupies the dune land between Harlach, the forbidding Castle, and the sea. Standing on top of a sheer precipice of rock, this rugged and tough par 69 layout rambles in all directions across flat and often open ground. The final holes run through "rippling and undulating dune land, and then close with a tough par three. The "Royal" designation was granted by Edward VII in 1908.
