Celtic Manor, the host venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup, was named the Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO). In being awarded with this highly regarded title, the resort follows in the footsteps of world renowned properties such as San Lorenzo in Portugal and The Turnberry Resort in Scotland. Before casting their votes, members of IAGTO were urged to take the following elements into consideration; service and facilities, maintenance and aesthetics of the course, customer satisfaction and value for money. I can speak from experience having attended the Ryder Cup Matches and I cannot say enough about the golf course as it was exposed to some brutal weather. The fact that the course was even playable was a minor miracle! Unfortunately I could not get access to the hotel, but I have had feedback from clients in the past and the property comes highly recommended. Click here for more information.
