Marriott st pierre
A faithful lieutenant to William the Conquerer, St. Pierre was rewarded for his noble service with more than 400 acres in the picturesque Wye Valley in Wales. Six hundred years later, St. Pierre's manor estate has become one of the premier golfing venues in Europe featuring two 18-hole courses.
Nestled among the ancient trees and peaceful hills, St. Pierre Country Club is a top destination for professional and amateur golfers alike. With breathtaking views, picturesque parkland and a stunning 14th century manor, St. Pierre, a Marriott Hotel & Country Club is an idyllic retreat.
The Old Course at St. Pierre Country Club has been ranked one of the top 120 golf courses in the world by Golf Monthly. This famous course has hosted over a dozen European tournaments, and past winners at the Old Course include Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, and Bernhard Langer.
The Golf Club at St Pierre is one of Europe's premier golfing venues and offers a choice of two 18-hole courses. Host to 11 European tour events and the Solheim Cup, the Championship Old Course is a favourite among professional and amateur golfers.
Ken Cotton first designed the Old Course in 1961 around an 11-acre lake lined with century-old trees. A giant 400 year-old chestnut rules the second fairway, requiring a test of skill to circumvent its reach. Hole 18 is one of the finest finishing holes you are likely to play. It measures 235 yards across the edge of a lake to a raised green, requiring a precision shot to the final putt. The 8th and 9th greens have also been rebuilt to USGA specification and the 7th hole remodelled to create a testing dogleg par 5 which is set to open in 2009.
The Mathern Course at St. Pierre Country Club is shorter than the Old Course, but equally as enjoyable with its stunning parkland design. The shorter length makes it ideal for an early morning game before work or a meeting. The Mathern Course is also a refreshing end to a day spent touring the surrounding attractions in Wales.
The Mathern Course was remodelled in 2007 by European Golf Design architect Ross McMurray. Work included the construction of 18 new tee complexes and the reconstruction and repositioning of bunkers. The project also included significant tree surgery and improvements to drainage and irrigation.
With breath-taking views, 400 acres of picturesque parkland and a stunning 14th century manor, Marriott St Pierre is an idyllic retreat. This Marriott resort, set in the rolling hills of South Wales, features the perfect blend of ancient architecture and modern amenities.
