FHM (and Ian Woosnam) take on America at golf

Celtic Manor - the place

Celtic Manor - the place

With Woosie’s advice ringing in our ears, we took an afternoon drive across to Wales.

Things started badly. We listened to our team lose 2-1 on the radio, and then got fleeced £5.70 to cross an admittedly very swanky bridge. “Bloody hell, Wales, this had better be good” we grumbled.

But, moments later, we arrived at Celtic Manor and were blown away.

The hotel exudes glamour and imposingness in equal measure, and it’s hard not to be taken aback by the sheer luxurious class of the whole place.

After checking into our opulent room, washing down a hefty steak with several ciders - we're sure Woosers would have advised that, had he remembered - we slunk to bed at about 1am.

As we turned out the lights, we thought "These Americans are in for a beating", with an elevated level of confidence instilled more by alcohol than ability, before knocking over a glass of water, jumping up to ensure it hadn't soaked anything electronic, and realising we were parading around our room naked, in full view of unfortunate and unsuspecting passers-by.

An inauspicious start, admittedly, but things could only get better...

Flag wasn't talking to building after their latest argument

If you want to experience it for yourself, head to www.celtic-manor.com. The Two Course Package enables you to play two of the championship courses, including the Twenty Ten Course, and enjoy a night’s b&b in the hotel, with full access to all facilities, from £167 per person
