tournament hotel - Le Regina*****

Languish with us for five nights of utter luxury in Biarritz's stunningly restyled five-star hotel - Le Régina. An hotel like no other, it dominates Biarritz from its privileged position on the cliffs near the famous lighthouse overlooking the beach and the Bay of Biscay. 

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

Afternoon & evening: Free.

Tuesday 27th September

Morning: 2nd round at Makila G.C.

A short drive inland towards the Pyrenées for the second round of the tournament at Makila.  A modern course that swoops around the Basque hillsides and through the dense deciduous forest.

Afternoon & evening: Free.


Wednesday 28th September

A free day to investigate some of the delights that the Pays Basque has to enjoy. 

A trip into Spain?  A climb up the Pyrenées (or take the petit train)?  A little surfing?  A day in Bayonne (and its chocolate museums)?  A game of Pelota?  A boat trip to Hondarribia?  Or maybe just a day on the beach?

The choice is yours!

Thursday 29th September

Morning: Final round at Seignosse G.C.

An hour's drive north to the fabled Seignosse, one of the most testing courses on the Continent.  Narrow Fairways that twist through the pines and plenty of water just where you don't want it!
A truly unforgettable course.

 

Evening: Reception and prize-giving dinner at the Régina Hotel - wines included.

Friday 30th September
