Louis Jadot Seniors Week
June 22nd - 26th 2014

A mixed pairs competition week for Gentlemen over fifty years of age and their Lady partners.
Join us for three days of competition golf in the glittering opulence of an Imperial Palace - L'Hôtel du Palais on la Grande Plage in Biarritz.  Le Palais was built by Napoleon III for his darling Eugénie and is now without question one of the finest hotels in all of France.

The competition is open to all Golf Club members with an official Handicap: winners will be decided by the highest aggregate, Betterball, Stableford score over the three days of the tournament.

First Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £400 Holiday voucher
Second Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £200 Holiday voucher
Third Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £100 Holiday voucher

The tournament hotels:
Hotel du Palais***** or Chiberta Golf Hotel****

Four nights basking in Basque luxury at the Hôtel du Palais***** that dominates Biarritz from its privileged position overlooking the beach and the Bay of Biscay.  True, it is a more expensive hotel than we traditionally use for our golf tournaments but the Palais made us an offer we couldn't refuse to host the tournament (and besides, we think you're worth it!).  Incidentally, four nights accommodation alone in the Hôtel du Palais in June would cost the same as the entire tournament!

Full details of the hotel are to be found on our Golf Par Gold pages.

We realise that the glamour of the Hôtel de Palais may be a little too extravagant for some, so we have an alternative four-star hotel too - the Chiberta Hotel on the golf course of the same name.  Three miles to the North of the town centre it is an excellent place to stay with indoor and outdoor pools, a very nice spa and the beach just across the road!
