Roman Road was a star turn long before neighbouring superstar Twenty Ten turned up on the scene and successfully hosted Wales’ first Ryder up last October.
Created by legendary American architect Robert Trent Jones Snr, the resort’s No.2 layout was once voted Wales’ best inland course. It may be on the short side but the Roman Road is plotted on wickedly undulating terrain so you’ll be playing from plenty of sloping lies.
