A part from through hospitality bookings or tour packages, Ryder Cup tickets will only be available via a ballot process run by the European Tour. So the Celtic Challenge is a rare and exciting opportunity to win your own place at the event.

There are other great prizes up for grabs in events throughout the summer, where the top three pairs of golfers will all progress to the grand final on October 15.

Whether you are a winner or not, the Celtic Challenge is an excellent opportunity to play all 18 holes of the new Twenty Ten course just days after the tour professionals have sampled it for the first time in the Celtic Manor Wales Open.

The winning pair at every qualifying event will scoop a four-ball package to return to play the Twenty Ten course and enjoy a gourmet dinner, as well as a luxury overnight stay for four people at the five-star Resort Hotel.

The runners-up will receive a four-ball package to return to play either the Roman Road or the new Montgomerie course and enjoy an overnight stay for four people in the Manor House at Celtic Manor.

Third-placed teams will receive a four-ball on the Roman Road or the Montgomerie, and there will also be voucher prizes for nearest the pin and longest drive competitions at all qualifying events which will be held on June 4, June 12, June 19, June 25, July 2, July 30, August 7 and August 13.
