Venue

Montecastillo Golf Resort, Jerez, Spain

The pride of southwestern Spain, Montecastillo Resort has long been a favourite of golfers all over the world. One of Jack Nicklaus’ most magnificent layouts, the course flows over the rolling hills of Andalucia, offering some fantastic views of the Spanish countryside. Often compared to England’s Wentworth, Montecastillo is a historic course. The host of the European Tour’s Volvo Masters from 1997-2001, this epic track has seen many golfing greats tee it up over the years.

Found just 15 miles from Spain’s gorgeous Atlantic coast, Montecastillo is in a great location, only 15 minutes from Jerez Airport and 30 minutes from Cadiz. The 5-star Barcelo Hotel at Montecastillo is magnificent, offering the highest standard of comfort and service. The elegant accommodation is decorated in Andalucian fashion, adding to the historic feel of the resort.

The resort has recently been refurbished and just oozes luxury. This is one of those golf resorts for people looking for something a little special, one to savour and talk about for years to come.

Etiquette

Golf is one of the greatest sports in the world. Respected and admired for its integrity and fair play. PAC wants to run a memorable enjoyable event whereby we announce the rightful winners. All competitors will be drawn at random for each days play to partner a different team. It is all teams’ responsibility to watch their partners and witness their play and scores. If you believe you have witnessed a misdemeanour, it is always best to question or discuss this with the opponent first for them to give their explanation, if that is not possible or awkward then please discreetly speak to the tournament referee or director at your first opportunity BEFORE you sign your partner’s card. We will take over from there. If this episode creates a negative atmosphere we will attempt to swap the teams with other teams. We ask to keep all accusations and incidences to be kept private and not to discuss with other competitors, only with officials. We will contact the club secretaries of all the top teams in contention on the final day to verify their status. Anyone caught playing off the wrong handicap or cheating will be in breech of our T&C and asked to leave the event with immediate effect and lose their complete holiday package.
