Wales Open Golf

 Following the unequivocal success of last year's Ryder Cup, the Celtic Manor Resort near Newport will find itself back in the golfing spotlight next week as it hosts the 2011 Wales Open.

First held in 2000 the tournament is now firmly established on the European Tour and attracts some of the biggest names in golf.  One of the European heroes of that unforgettable Ryder Cup was Graeme McDowell and he'll be back this year hoping to defend the trophy he won last year. 

As well as all the action out on the course there's plenty of other activities to keep everyone occupied including bars and food outlets, exhibition stands, a big screen to watch the golf and the popular Junior Golf area.
