Golf trip of a lifetime with Le Bureau

8.05am 9th July 2012 - Travel

Flying 7,500km in a private jet, playing 90 holes of golf at some of Europe’s most dramatic courses all within a 120 hour period might sound like something out of a Jules Verne novel but it is in fact the schedule for a once-in-a-lifetime golf trip run by golf travel specialists Le Bureau.

A group of eight golfers will take part in the trip from 28 August until 1 September and enjoy an amazing jet tour all over Europe. Starting from Geneva, the tour will take in golf at Old Head Links in Ireland, Machrihanish Golf Club in Scotland, the Bro Hof Slott Golf Course in Sweden, Thracian Cliffs in Bulgaria and Costa Navarino Bay in Greece before returning to Geneva.

The unique tour, named “The Five Scenics: Sea, Lake and Cliff Hangers”, is the highlight of the Le Bureau International Golf Series 2012. Focusing on delivering extraordinary money-can’t-buy experiences to small groups of clients, Le Bureau makes the impossible reality and delivers the highest standards of personal service for its clients.

The tour gets underway early in the morning on 28 August when the group will board a Cessna Sovereign jet with Le Bureau Managing Partner Dominique Rey and fly off to their first destination in Ireland while enjoying true luxury on board.

“The world of travel offers unlimited possibilities these days but we believe that what we have created here with the jet trip is a completely unique experience,’’ said Dominique  “’Where else could you enjoy such an outstanding golf experience playing five such dramatic courses all over Europe in five days? We are offering our guests luxury private jet travel, fantastic golf courses, luxurious accommodation and the highest levels of customer service throughout the trip. For a golfer with an appetite for a unique experience this is surely manna from heaven.”

Le Bureau has carefully selected five top class golf courses offering stunning scenery and enjoyable golfing challenges which showcase the incredible variety which European golf has to offer.

Located on a 220-acre diamond of land and jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland’s Old Head Links is one of the most remarkable landscapes in golf. It rises hundreds of feet high above dramatic cliffs surrounded by the ocean on all sides and commands spectacular views.

Machrihanish Golf Club on the west coast of Scotlandwas designed by the father of golf, Old Tom Morris. It is a stunning test of links golf with the famous opening hole requiring golfers to play over a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean to find the fairway. Machrihanish was ranked 39th best course outside of the United Statesby Golf Digest in 2005.

Following an overnight stay in the newly refurbished Ugadale Hotel the group will then be whisked off to Sweden to play the Stadium Course at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club. Voted Sweden’s best golf course two years running and regularly featuring in European course rankings, this beautiful lakeside course hosts the Nordea Scandinavian Masters on the European Tour.

From Sweden it will be a journey across Europe to the emerging golf destination ofBulgaria. In its short history, Thracian Cliffs has already achieved international renown. The cliff-top course hugs the shores of the Black  Sea and provides a challenge and setting which, in the words of its designer, Gary Player, “can´t be found anywhere else on the planet”.

Last but certainly not least is the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Costa Navarino Bay Golf Course in Greece. Opened in October 2011, the Bay Course offers panoramic seaside and mountain views overlooking the historic bay of Navarino and a stiff test of golf.
