Top chateaux launch drive to draw golfers

ON THE GRAPEVINE

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Wine Column -

IF you play golf and en­joy wine then you can com­bine the two at the Sauternes and Barsac Golf Week­end, which will be held on Septem­ber 14 and 15.

Top-name es­tates in­clud­ing Châteaux Cli­mens, Guiraud, d’Yquem and Fil­hot will work to­gether so you can prac­tise your swing and then dine at the properties.

From the pro­gramme it seems that th­ese are not proper golf cour­ses, more of a peri­patetic game of golf with each châteaux pro­vid­ing one of the greens, but it should be great fun and will give a ter­rific in­sight into the re­gion.

De­tails can be found on www. golfet­grand­scrus. com. Find the tiny top right hand but­ton to switch the site to English.

The cost for play­ers is 395 eu­ros, with­out travel and ac­com­mo­da­tion, but the or­gan­is­ers can pro­vide a list of lo­cal places to stay.
