Day 1 - Wednesday 25 September
Check in to the magnificent 5 Star Hotel du Palais for 5 wonderful VIP nights. Within 100 metres of the centre of Biarritz relive the glory years of this legendary seaside resort. Home to members of the aristocracy and the art world, one cannot fail to fall under the spell of elegance and the legendary ‘art of living’ at the Hotel du Palais.
Wander around the town centre or put on your walking shoes and grab your camera to get the best view of Biarritz with a visit to the Rocher de la Vierge. Napoleon III had this amazing idea to hollow out the rock surrounded by reef. Once completed, he added a walkway linking it to the cliff and added the statue of Virgin Mary.
Meet your fellow travellers at tonight’s Welcome Dinner.
Day 2 - Thursday 26 September
A truly beautiful course, Golf du Biarritz Le Phare is a much cherished golf club, no doubt due to its exceptional panoramic views and its links to the imperial past. Here is your chance to get a sneak preview of the course. The fast and very undulated greens make for a real challenge. Enjoy the round and take notes so that you are in top form for the tournament!
Biarritz is also famous as a major surfing destination. Why not take a walk along the beach and check out the surf?
Afternoon and evening at your leisure.
Day 3 - Friday 27 September
Day Trip to San Sebastian
Everybody’s favourite, San Sebastián is a resort town on the Bay of Biscay in Spain’s mountainous Basque Country. It’s known for beaches framed by a picturesque bay front promenade, a cobblestone old town and vibrant pintxo ( Basque tapas) bars, pairing local wines with regional tapas. When it comes to food, no other city quite compares.
We take a 2 hour guided walking tour on arrival followed by some local tapas for lunch.
The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore this vibrant town and meet a few locals. Our visit happens to coincides with the International Film Festival, Zinemaldia, the most cosmopolitan event on San Sebastien’s calendar, so don’t be surprised should you spot a movie star or two or an up and coming movie director.
On return to our hotel, meet your fellow competitors from around the world and join them for a typical Basque dinner at a local favourite downtown.
Day 4 - Saturday 28 September
The Tournament begins
In the Roaring Twenties Tom Simpson was instructed by the golf mad Duke of Windsor to create the most beautiful course in the world, known today as Golf de Chiberta.

The format for the tournament is stableford.
