The Twenty Ten Golf Course Review

The Twenty Ten Course opens with a 465-yards par 4 that is very much a risk-and-reward hole where an accurate drive down the left-hand side will leave an easier approach. However, bunkers on the dogleg make this shot more challenging with the right-hand side the safer line, despite leaving a more difficult angle into the green. Steep swales surround the green. 

The 2nd is a monstrous par 5 measuring 610 yards. The River Usk runs alongside the narrow fairway, and bunkers flank on both sides. More bunkers await the second shot that will take you towards the sloping green. 

To complete a testing opening three holes, the par 3, 3rd requires a 160-yard carry over water. 

 The 12th is a memorable hole. It measures 458 yards and requires both a drive and second shot to be hit over water to small green surrounded by bunkers.  

The 16th is 499 yards and is a par 4. It has a narrow, bunker-lined fairway; just avoid going right, where a bunker or embankment lay in wait. The green slopes from left to right. 

The closing hole is a great par 5, measuring 575 yards. It calls for a draw from the tee to have any chance to reach the target in two. There are fairway bunkers and the green is well-protected by sand.
