Golfers invited to relive dramatic climax hailed the ‘greatest ever’
The Celtic Manor Resort is inviting golfers to come back and celebrate the first anniversary of Europe’s dramatic victory in The 2010 Ryder Cup by playing in a special challenge match on Monday 3rd October.
Reliving Monty’s Magic Monday, players will have the chance to represent Team Europe or Team USA, soaking up the Ryder Cup atmosphere with breakfast in their allocated team rooms and changing at the same lockers as the world’s best players before taking on the spectacular challenge of the Twenty Ten Course.
On the one-year anniversary of what many have hailed the most exciting Ryder Cup of all-time, participants will play to the exact same pin positions which confronted Graeme McDowell and the rest of Europe’s heroes during their nail-biting, one-point triumph on the final day.
The Ryder Cup Anniversary Challenge will be played as a fourball betterball competition under a shotgun start with players able to keep in touch with the overall match scoreboard throughout the day via live scoring.
At the conclusion of play, the winning team will be announced and champagne will flow on the balcony of the Twenty Ten Clubhouse, just as it did when Captain Colin Montgomerie and his delighted team celebrated in front of their ecstatic fans a year before.
Players will also enjoy a three-course dinner in the Samuel Ryder Suite to round off a memorable day. For an entry fee of £245, players will all receive:
- 18 holes on Twenty Ten Course with live scoring
- Breakfast upon arrival in allocated team room
- Commemorative team shirt, sweater and hat
- Champagne reception on balcony of Twenty Ten Clubhouse
- Three-course celebration dinner in Samuel Ryder Suite
Those wishing to stay at Celtic Manor’s five-star Resort Hotel on the eve of the Challenge can do so from just £53.
“The Ryder Cup Anniversary Challenge offers an exclusive opportunity for amateur golfers to experience the atmosphere of golf’s most celebrated team competition,” says Dylan Matthews, Chief Executive of Celtic Manor.
“Test your golfing mettle and enjoy the camaraderie, pomp, pressure and elation unique to the Ryder Cup.”
