Golf in and around the local area  

For golfers, Wales is a voyage of discovery. It is a country so perfectly designed for the game, it’s as if the forces of nature conspired to make it this way. There are some 200 courses set amidst the most spectacular scenery. With inspirational links, parkland courses in mountain settings, championship courses in the shadow of mighty medieval castles and luxuriously modern golfing resorts, Wales really is a golfer’s paradise.

Celtic Manor Golf Club – Ryder Cup 2010 venue

The speed with which Celtic Manor has impressed itself on the world golfing scene is little short of miraculous. Less than seven years after it was founded in 1995, it was selected as the host course for The 2010 Ryder Cup.

Already one of the leading golf complexes in Europe, Celtic Manor opened the new Twenty Ten Course in 2007 – the first course in history to be purpose-built for staging The Ryder Cup.

The Resort boasts three championship courses in all and a floodlit golf academy plus a 400 bed Five Star hotel and health spa. Costing £20 million, including the construction of a second large and luxurious golf clubhouse at the Resort, the spectacular Twenty Ten features water hazards on half of its holes and many more risk and reward dilemmas designed to create thrilling team matchplay during

The Ryder Cup. Home of the £1.8m Celtic Manor Wales Open, the Twenty Ten has also been built with spectators in mind and the 50,000 people a day who will attend golf’s greatest team tournament in 2010 will benefit from vast viewing slopes on a natural hillside which abuts the closing holes.

The original Roman Road course was designed by the legendary architect, Robert Trent Jones, following a chance meeting with Celtic Manor owner Sir Terry Matthews which would become a lasting friendship.

The other 18-hole course at Celtic Manor, The Montgomerie, bears the name of its designer, the Ryder Cup star who remained true to his roots in Scottish links golf when planning deep pot bunkers and tricky greenside swales.

 Ashburnham Golf Club


Golf in Carmarthen and Llanelli at  Ashburnham Golf ClubOne of the finest Championship Links courses in Britain and currently ranked 6th best course in Wales, Ashburnham has hosted prestigious professional and amateur Championships, including two British PGA Championships and the 1976 Martini International Tournament.
Chosen as a qualifying venue for the 2014 Seniors Open Championship, this event is the latest in a long line of important events held here since the early 1900’s when Harry Vardon, the six time British Open Champion said “The course I like best in Wales is Ashburnham”.

A glittering array of Major Champions and International golfers have played here including three victorious Ryder Cup Captains who have each won prestigious tournaments at Ashburnham.

Ashburnham celebrated its centenary in 1994 by staging the Men’s Home International Championship for the second time and in 2010 the four nations event returned for a third time when an England team featuring current European stars , Tom Lewis, Eddie Pepperrel and Tommy Fleetwood won the Raymond Trophy.

Past and present Walker Cup Captains have also enjoyed success here, as Peter McEvoy led England to victory in the 1994 Home Internationals whilst current captain Nigel Edwards respresented Wales in 2010 and won the Carmarthenshire Open on two occasions.

Members and Visitors alike appreciate the true links experience that this historic venue provides, and together with the stunning scenery and a warm welcome offered in the clubhouse makes Ashburnham an experience not to be missed.
