Hole 14 Go to 13

No. 14

485 Yards
Par 4


This, in my opinion, is the best hole on the golf course which is borne out by the fact that it was ranked the toughest at The 2009 Celtic Manor Wales Open. It demands a great drive followed by a fantastic second shot which now comes in at an angle. We used to be able to drive over the water, a carry of some 265 yards but because the new tee is further back, you can't do that now so you have to aim your tee shot left which leaves a demanding second shot in at an angle. Much depends, of course, from where the wind is blowing -- if it's the prevailing wind then it will be behind the players sweeping straight up the valley from Bristol towards Monmouth.
