I have a great appreciation of the game of golf. I caddied one summer during my high school years -- and I also tried to learn to play the game. Not being much of an athlete myself, it did not go well -- but I still appreciate the game that much more because I recognize the skill involved. And I especially have appreciation for a beautiful golf course like the Celtic Manor resort in Wales, and the variety of golf breaks they offer for those who love to play the game.
Right now, Celtic Manor is offering a variety of winter golf breaks with a whole host of amenities. These stay and play packages start at as low as £69 per person, which is an incredible value for such a quality golf resort. That £69 will get you two days of golf and a night's lodging -- and you will get to play both the Roman Road and Montgomerie courses. Or you can spend a little more and play the Twenty Ten course, where they held the Ryder Cup two years ago, as well either the Roman Road or Montgomerie course. And if you aren't looking to spend the night, they have a number of day packages that include a reasonably priced round of golf and the amenities of the resort. So if you are interested in some great golf in the UK, consider a visit to Celtic Manor.
