                                                     for golfers

Classic and elegant,
the Marriott St Pierre Hotel and
Country Club is a true haven for golfers.
Built around a 14th Century Manor
House and the 11th century Norman
Church of St Peter, its rich history is
clear in every element – from the
building to the golfing.
The famous Old Course has played host to 14
European tournaments and previous winners
have included some of the game’s most
illustrious names; Seve Ballesteros, Greg
Norman and Bernhard Langer. Designed
around an 11 acre lake, the course poses a
range of testing challenges from water hazards
to tough bunkers. The old course builds to an
exciting climax by finishing with two truly
classic holes: the 17th Green positioned
almost on an island and the elevated green on
the 18th provide an exhilarating, challenging
end to any round.
Alternatively, head for the equally challenging
Mathern course which snakes through the
peaceful Monmouthshire countryside and
provides its own unique obstacles.
To complement these two stunning courses
the hotel offers a full range of modern facilities
including a 13 bay floodlit driving range with
video analysis room, putting and chipping
greens and a short game practice area.
