Fresh from a 7-day jaunt across Wales that included 10 rounds, some narrow streets and a truck or two, our very own Robert Thompson runs down the best and worst from his Wales golf trip, a review of the upcoming 2010 Ryder Cup course at Celtic Manor and what he’d recommend for a golf trip to Wales. Check it out. Here’s a sneak peak:
I arrived back in Toronto on Saturday night after a week of chasing golf balls in Wales. It was a fascinating, eye-opening trip that proved far better, at least in terms of golf and weather, than I expected. The wonderful Canadian Affair flight I took from Manchester to Toronto didn’t have a plug for my laptop, and the movie was in black-and-white on my communal screen, so it gave me time to think of what I’d done over seven days. In six playing days I managed ten rounds of golf. That included 36 holes of carrying my bag at Celtic Manor, Porthcawl/Pennard, St. David’s/Nefyn. Surprisingly I never felt run down after those days, though the Royal St. David’s/Nefyn day was a long one in that it also included three hours of driving all told.
