El Clasico de Valencia 2017

September 24th - 29th

We're off to sunny Spain this Autumn for five nights of five-star luxury, three days of glorious golf, lashings of Spanish cuisine (we're staying in the home of Paella), some fine wines and no doubt a little sightseeing too in the historic city of Valencia!

This mixed-pairs 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: £400 Holiday voucher
Second Prize: £200 Holiday voucher
Third Prize: £100 Holiday voucher

tournament hotel - Westin Valencia*****

We will be staying in the best hotel in Valencia - the five-star Westin Valencia in the heart of the city: strolling distance to the Placa Major and all the main sights.  It has beautiful rooms, two restaurants, a small spa and a very convenient underground car park.

Full details of the hotel are to be found on our Valencia pages.

Competition Schedule

Free

Monday 25th September

Morning: First competition round at Escorpion G.C.

The perfect spot to start the week's golf: a level, not too taxing layout, through balmy palm groves around a classic hacienda-style Clubhouse.

Afternoon & evening: Free.

Tuesday 26th September

Morning: Second tournament round at El Saler G.C.

The toughest test of the week (probably) on Spain's only links course, which has hosted the Spanish Open on many occasions in the past.  El Saler lies south of Valencia amongst the fascinating wetlands and nature reserve of the Albufera National Park.  Here, wildfowl teem and wheel in the azure skies above the bright green paddy fields - it's no wonder Paella was invented in Valencia!

Afternoon & evening: Free.

Wednesday 27th September

 

A totally free day to wander the streets and gaze at the sights of Valencia.
Or to make the most of the hotel facilities.
Or to dine in style at one of Valencia's famous restaurants.
Or a day soaking up the last rays of Summer on Valencia's big sandy beach?

Or a little of everything!?!

 

Thursday 28th September

Morning: Final tournament round at El Bosque G.C.

After two days on the level a few hills come into play at one of Valencia's most exclusive Golf Clubs.
El Bosque has a fine mix of holes, peppered with sand and water that demand strategic decisions from the golfer before pulling a club from the bag.  The kind of course that can cause big swings in the scores...

Evening: Reception and prize-giving dinner at the Westin Valencia - wines included.

Friday 29th September

 

Departure day: Or with so much to see and do in the province of Valencia why not stay a few extra nights?  Or move on to Denia or further south?
