The Roman Road is the oldest of the courses at the legendary Celtic Manor resort and gets it’s name from the Roman road that runs east-west across the course. Designed by Robert Tent Jones, this championship course has hosted many European Tour and Senior Tour events in the past and it’s not hard too see why. This meticulously designed course runs a testing 6,600 yards from the back tees or a more casual 6000 yards from the yellow, integrating all the natural contours and roman features to create a seamless design that feels totally in tune with it’s surroundings. The course features generously wide fairways , large bunkers and many water hazards that will keep golfers thinking throughout the round, all while winding it’s way through the stunning estate with its mature woodland and Roman history. There are many memorable holes on the Roman Road, including the lengthy par-3 8th that requires an accurate tee shot through a tunnel of trees and the relatively short par-4 14th that features a wicked right to left dogleg followed by an approach shot over water. Now one of three courses at this historic venue, the Roman Road should not be overlooked for the more famous Montgomerie or 2010 courses, after all it was this course that originally drew in golfers from far and wide.
