The Celtic Manor Resort – host of golf’s 2010 Ryder Cup and premier luxury retreat less than two hours outside London – will exhibit at the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL in conjunction with Visit Wales (Booth #1873).
Celtic Manor, the top-rated resort in the UK, was founded in 1980 by Welshman Sir Terry Matthews, the Ottawa, Canada-based entrepreneur and Wales’ first billionaire. October’s Ryder Cup will take place on the resort’s Twenty Ten Course – the only ever built specifically to host the Ryder Cup.
“We’re excited to meet with media, patrons and tour operators at the PGA show,” says Dylan Matthews, Chief Executive of Celtic Manor. “We encourage them to stop by the Visit Wales stand to learn more about Celtic Manor, the Twenty Ten Course and our other, award-winning amenities.”
Featuring more than 1,400 acres of verdant countryside, five-star Celtic Manor has two additional championship courses: The Roman Road – a Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed home to the Celtic Manor Wales Open on the PGA European Tour (2005-07) and The Montgomerie – designed by 2010 Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie. All three courses offer stunning vistas of the idyllic grounds.
“We treat our guests like royalty at Celtic Manor,” says Matthews. “Once you visit, you’ll quickly realize its one of the globe’s special golf locales.”
Among the Celtic Manor Resort staff attending the Show are Marketing Director, Gareth Rees Jones, and Director of Golf Courses & Estates Management, Jim McKenzie.
