The Celtic Manor Resort has launched a new Country Membership for its Twenty Ten Club, encouraging golfers from all over the United Kingdom to become a real part of next year’s Ryder Cup.
With the majority of the club’s existing membership coming from Celtic Manor’s immediate surroundings in South Wales, the Country Membership offers an opportunity for those from further afield to join one of the most prestigious new golf clubs in Britain.
Restricted to golfers whose primary residence is outside of a 75-mile radius of The Celtic Manor Resort, Country Membership brings all of the benefits as Full Membership but with a saving of £1,000 on both the joining fee and the annual subscription.
Not only will country members enjoy full playing privileges on the spectacular Twenty Ten Course, the first in history to be purpose built for The Ryder Cup, they will also receive a season ticket to the big match between Europe and America in 2010 as well as the opportunity to purchase another one, both tickets including hospitality places in a members’ pavilion.
Before the much-anticipated showdown takes place, country members will have the chance to familiarise themselves with a stunning golf course which is bound to create high drama during the fevered atmosphere of The Ryder Cup. With water hazards on half of its holes, some driveable par fours and reachable par fives, The Twenty Ten contains a host of risk and reward dilemmas which golfers will never tire of playing.
Two more championship courses – Roman Road and The Montgomerie – also form part of the membership package as well as use of the Forum Health Club with its state-of-the-art gymnasium and 20-metre swimming pool within the Resort Hotel.
For new country members, all this comes at a cost of just £2,000 joining fee, payable over two years interest free, and £2,000 annual subscription.
Dylan Matthews, chief executive of The Celtic Manor Resort, said, “We have been delighted to see so many visitors come to play The Twenty Ten Course from all over the UK and beyond.
“Many of them have been so impressed that they would like the opportunity to return on a regular basis and make themselves a real part of The Ryder Cup in 2010 – the biggest sporting event ever to come to Wales.
“Launching this Country Membership will enable them to do just that and enjoy the world-class facilities at The Celtic Manor Resort.”
For those living within the 75-mile radius of Celtic Manor, opportunities to become a full member still exist. For more information visit celtic-manor.com or call the Membership team on + 44 (0)1633 410300.
