Lord Taverners & Brittany Ferries Charity 'Cruise & Golf' in St Malo
February 8, 2012
Brittany Ferries and well known charity, The Lord’s Taverners, have come together in a fund-raising golf tournament in France this Spring, with an entry price of only £99 per person.
This includes a crossing with car from Portsmouth to St Malo overnight on Monday 19th March aboard the luxury cruise-ferry Pont Aven, a round of golf at one of the top rated courses near St Malo on Tuesday 20th March, and a prize-giving on board that evening before cruising back overnight to Portsmouth, arriving Wednesday morning.
• The outward journey departs Portsmouth at 20.15 on Monday 19th March and arrives back at 08.00 on Wednesday 21st March
• The price of £99 is based on four people in a car and sharing a four berth cabin
• Supplements will apply if teams take two cars or extra cabin upgrades
• There is an option to travel out on the 18th (departing at 20.15) and enjoy a practice round and stay in a hotel overnight on the 19th at an additional cost of just £60 per person
Format for the event will be:
• A shotgun start at each course on the competition day between 10.00 and 10.30
• 4 man/lady teams which can include professionals, split into 2 pairs and playing one game separately
• Better-ball Stableford with the pairs scores added together for the team total; ¾ handicap allowance for each player
• Up to 250 team places are available
The Lord’s Taverners are well known for its charitable activities that give young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance. This event promises a great day’s golf in one of the high quality courses to be found around the pretty Breton port of St Malo as well as the opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause.
Pont Aven is the pride of Brittany Ferries’ fleet and the leisurely overnight crossings give plenty of time to enjoy a really good dinner freshly prepared by French chefs and a good night’s sleep in a comfortable cabin with en-suite facilities.
