The Celtic Manor Wales Open is a European Tour golf tournament which was founded in 2000 and is played each June. The Celtic Manor Resort in the city of Newport, South Wales is a large resort and hotel which has been developed since the mid 1990s and is the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup. From 2000 to 2004 the tournament was played over the resort's Wentwood Hills course, but as that course was being redeveloped for the Ryder Cup, the 2005/6 event was played over the Roman Road course. Since 2008, the event has been played on the Ryder Cup Twenty-Ten course. The 2008 prize fund was £1.8 million or €2.3 million.

In 2006 Sweden's Robert Karlsson broke the European Tour's 36-hole and 54-hole scoring records by shooting 124 for the first two rounds and 189 for the first three. However as the course was a par 69, which is rare at this level, his to-par scores were a much less remarkable 14 under after two rounds and 18 under after three. He shot two over par for the final round, but still won. In the same year, Phillip Archer posted a score of 60 in the first round, which was almost a 59 but for a missed birdie putt on the 18th green.
