This is followed by an evening enjoying the hotel’s various facilities; indulging in one of the four world-class restaurants or relaxing in the hotel’s spa. Good preparation for the second and third days, which consist of a round of golf on both ‘Le Château’ and ‘Le Riou’ courses.
On Saturday 20 September, Terre Blanche will host a Gala Dinner, giving guests of the Classic Amateur programme and club members a chance to dine in one of the hotel’s four Mediterranean restaurants and discuss their golf experiences. And on Sunday 21 September, Terre Blanche will bring the three days to a close with a prize giving and cocktail party, which will award players with the best results over the two days.
