5 Reasons To Play The Twenty Ten This Winter

Category: News, Up Your Game

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 Footsteps

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

We can’t 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

The Twenty 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.  

5 Great Value Deals

Take advantage of some Twenty Ten-tastic deals to play the Ryder Cup course this winter including green fees from just £49. Stay-and-play packages to play the Twenty Ten, enjoy an overnight stay and take in another round on the Roman Road or Montgomerie start from £99
