Cheltenham Festival golf experience

A new scheme has been launched to provide great days out for golfers - combining a top quality golf day with five-star hospitality and top tickets to a stella race meeting nearby.

'FairwaytoFurlong' is the brainchild of, the leading golf travel company offers the opportunity for golfers to indulge their favourite passion with a day at the races.

And what could deliver more fun and entertainment than the 'Cheltenham Centenary Festival Golf Day' on March 14/15? Here's the chance to play the TwentyTen course at The Celtic Manor Golf Resort, where the Ryder Cup was won and the following day pitch up for  the Cheltenham Festival race meeting - probably the world's No.1 horse-racing event over the jumps.

Golf, hospitality, overnight accommodation and race tickets are all part of the £2000 package for a fourball.

The mouth-watering prospect of competing against your mates on the course where Europe claimed back the Ryder Cup in such dramatic fashion must be every golfer's dream but to follow it up with the chance to watch the sport of kings must surely be the ultimate experience.
