Played the Roman Road course for the second time yesterday. For a modern track it is very challenging as one might expect from a course that has hosted PGA Tour events. Most of the holes have some interest, whether it be change in elevation, change in direction, plentiful bunkering, undulating green, or a combination of these features. It is quite a tough walk uphill and downdale and there are some long distances from green to next tee. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition but the tees were surprisingly bare and scrappy. We paid £17.50 on a 241 deal which was excellent value.

We played this with a 2 for 1 offer £17.50. This is my first visit to Celtic Manor. my first impression was WOW! The grand hotel on the hill, The drive through the course & the very nice club house. There are 3 courses here, we played the Roman Road. It was easily one of the toughest courses I have played, made more difficult by un-raked animal scrapings in a couple of bunkers that I visited! Each hole seemed to have it's own personality & different challenge. The greens are all up, down & around (Nothing flat) The most memorable holes for me (although I messed them up) were the down hill 7th & the 10th which was a 200yd lay up & then a 180yds across a ravine on to a very undulating green. This course has far too many bunkers for my liking (i visited most of them!) But it is one of those that you really want to play again to improve your score (Local knowledge is a BIG advantage). By the way, you might need a mortgage to buy a coffe at the bar £2.90.

We played the montgomery on the sunday with was a very nice course but i would reccommend a buggy as it is very tiring to walk.As we found out i was absolutly shattered But the parkland course is a decent test for any golfer.On the monday we played the 2010 now talk about being treated like gold,Whe we arrived our clubs were taken from us and we didnt see them again till the first tee.We were then shown to the changing room where there is a locker with your name on it and a welcome letter and complimentary shoe bag in side.Although tne course was a bit frozen it played very well and is a very worthy ryder cup venue.the front 9 holes are on the level as are the holes 10 to 14.The rest climb up a steep hill until it levels out at the top.There are several feature holes and plenty of risk and reward holes to play.The 18th par 5 is an excellent finishing hole.Then back to the clubhouse where your clubs are taken from you and returned to you having been cleaned after your round,How cool is that,In the mean time you have showered and changed and had a nice drink and nibbles around a roaring log fire.All in all i think this 2010 course is a must play if you want that feel special feeling.I cant wait to play it in the summer
