Ryder Cup stage invites golfers to be part of the drama

12.20am 17th October 2007 - Course Development

The new course built for staging the Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort in 2010 has been named after the date that shaped its existence.

The Twenty Ten Course has been given a title which reflects the fact that the spectacular new layout will forever be associated with hosting The Ryder Cup, one of the world’s most captivating sporting events.

Playing the prestigious course – the first ever to be designed and built specifically for The Ryder Cup – is not the only benefit of accepting an invitation to become a member of the new Twenty Ten Club, one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the United Kingdom.

First and foremost, membership is the best way of guaranteeing a place at The Ryder Cup in 2010. Demand will heavily outstrip supply when ticket applications are decided by a ballot process, but every member of The Twenty Ten Club will be given a season ticket plus the opportunity to purchase another one.

Come the autumn of 2010, every member and a guest will also have access to a private members pavilion on every day of golf’s greatest team tournament between Europe and America.

The Twenty Ten Club will be strictly limited to 450 members who will be able to relax in a luxurious new clubhouse before or after a round on the world’s latest trophy course. It is expected that such a luxurious new golfing facility will attract members from all over the UK and abroad, as well as the club’s immediate surroundings in south Wales.

Dylan Matthews, chief executive of The Celtic Manor Resort, said, “This is a very exciting opportunity for golfers who pride themselves in the calibre of the club they belong to. The Twenty Ten Club will be one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the country as befits a Ryder Cup venue and a course which is already winning a reputation as one of the world’s must-play championship layouts.

“As well as becoming part of an elite club that exudes luxury and quality, Twenty Ten membership also brings the opportunity to be a part of history when The Ryder Cup comes to Wales for the first time in 2010. This is the best way to guarantee your place at the heart of the action – a ticket that money may not be able to buy at the time – as well as being able to call the venue your own home course.”
