Just because the leaves are falling off the trees and the days are getting shorter, it doesn't mean you have to store your golf clubs in the garage until spring. Here are five great reasons why you should play the iconic Twenty Ten Course this winter...
1 Follow In The
Revisit the scene of the dramatic
2010 Ryder Cup triumph over the Americans. Who can forget Graeme McDowell’s arms-aloft celebration as he drained
his birdie putt on the 16th? Or the victory stampede on the next
green when he clinched Europe’s nail-biting victory by the narrowest margin of
a single point?
2 Enjoy The Star Treatment
promise your winning putt will earn quite the same reception as G-Mac’s, but
any visitor to the Twenty Ten Course gets to feel like a tour pro for the day.
From having your car valet-parked on arrival to enjoying a post-round drink in
the clubhouse while your clubs are cleaned, every little touch will hopefully inspire
you to rise to the occasion.
3 Mint Condition
Ten Course has some of the driest fairways you’ll find on any parkland course
in the UK thanks to the drainage installed to cope with deluge thrown at the
2010 Ryder Cup. All you have to do is keep it on the fairway! In addition, the
course never reverts to winter tees or greens so you play the full,
well-manicured course whatever time of year you visit.
4 Getting Better and Better
The Twenty Ten Course drew rave reviews when it staged the
Ryder Cup five years ago but last year’s European Captain Paul McGinley reckoned
it was in even better nick for the last ISPS HANDA Wales Open. Director of
Golf Courses Jim McKenzie agrees that all golf courses remain works in progress and
that the Twenty Ten, which was only three years old when the Ryder Cup was
staged here, has bedded in significantly since.
