A little December game at Celtic Manor


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Lucky to have a day off from work today and was even luckier to have a tee time on the 2010 course at Celtic Manor.

 

Ok, ideally I wouldn't want to play in a 30 mph wind with low temperatures and rain.....but great fun all the same.

 

Treated brilliantly at the club, ferried round to the range, little souvenirs and hardly saw another player out there.

 

85 whacks wasn't great but it was really really hard out there!

 

Oh and had pouters locker in the changing room, which I think was bigger than my house!

 

Certainly better than work....

Love it!  Nice round in not so nice conditions.  

I am just a little jealous that the UK has such nice courses so close; well, close compared to us here in the States.  I would like to make it over there one of these days.

I'm lucky really, celtic manor is 30 minutes from my front door and the 2010 (although not at its best - where is in December) is down to around 75 dollars on a weekday.

 

It was millionaire golf really, saw one other group in 4.5 hours. Shame the weather wasn't better, but I've played in worse.

It's not too bad out today, if a bit cold, but the wind makes your number very, very respectable.

Glad to hear they're treating people well again. After the Ryder Cup the place had unbelievably good customer service, for a UK-based establishment, a year later, it seems, all the well trained people had left and the vibe was very different, but they've just had the NATO summit there so hopefully everyone has been well trained again.

And we can all thank Sir Terry.

Yep it was good yesterday, but hey it was quiet so we had a member of staff each pretty much!
