• Overview


    The Georges VI Hotel is situated in the centre of Biarritz close to the Port Vieux beach. The hotel oozes charm, ambience and a sense of history and is located in the very heart of Biarritz, a stroll away from a plethora of restaurants and bars. The rooms are very well appointed and indeed the hotel was recently renovated, bringing some modern touches, but without losing any of the character and appeal.

    There is a unique feel Basque region, with the fusion of mountain and ocean scenery, the blend of Spanish and French and the sports mad locals, who love their golf, rugby and football. The hotel provides the ideal setting to enjoy Biarritz, the Basque lifestyle and the five super golf courses that will be played during the week.



    The Makila Golf Club is a par 72 course and is 6,176m. long. This natural site, established on rolling hills and valleys, through a forest of centuries old oak trees, was harmoniously designed by the talented American Architect, Rocky Roquemore. The course provides very different holes throughout the round, presenting variety and differing challenges. There is also the wonderful distraction of the Pyrenees Mountains in the distance and the coast of Biarritz just 5kms away.


    Designed and built in 1888 by the architect, Willie Dunn, the 18-hole Biarritz Le Phare golf course is set in the heart of the town amidst superb surroundings. It remains not only an example of the history of golf in France but also bears the tradition of the origins of golf in the Basque country. Throughout the years it has remained truly British, both technically and in its style by blending perfectly with the landscape. Situated between the mountains and the sea it offers excellent playing conditions throughout the year due to the particularly mild climate.


    It is at Moliets that the combination of the genius of the architect Robert Trent Jones and the natural environment gave rise to the creation of an exceptional 27-hole course, set within a century-old pine forest and bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The Moliets Golf Course is ranked one of the top 10 in France and regarded as one of the 25 most beautiful courses in Europe. It is also used by the European Challenge Tour as part of the European circuit. Close to both Biarritz and Bordeaux, this unique links course with its wide fairways, set within delightful surroundings was recently voted the 68th most beautiful course in the world by the magazine Golf Digest. Although a challenging course it remains fair to players of all abilities.


    The Golf d’Arcangues was created in the 1990’s by the brothers Guy and Jean d’Arcangues on the family property which surrounds the village and the Château to which it was named after. The course, laid out over 70 hectares was designed by the American architect Ronald Fream and is part of the second generation of golf courses on the Basque coast, thereby reinforcing its position as an exceptional golfing destination. The Clubhouse, a 15th century restored farmhouse, has its own inimitable style with its typical English bar, open log fires during the winter, a restaurant with magnificent oak beams and a spacious south facing terrace overlooking the 1st and 10th tees and the 18th green.


    Located in the beautiful region of Les Landes, 45 minutes from Biarritz, Golf de Seignosse is a must play course. It is undoubtedly one of the best courses in France. A great test of anyone’s ability, with the tight fairways that meander through the pine trees to the Greens, which are well defended by water and deep bunkers. The course is constructed in a clockwise loop, starting and ending with the newly refurbished clubhouse. The course features a hilly terrain, with several challenging water features that are more often than not hidden to try and hinder our play. The course is a wonderful challenge and a fitting finale to our golf programme for the week.
