TAKE THE CAT FOR A BIRDIE IN HARDELOT

 

Hoverspeed passengers on its Seacat service from Folkestone to Boulogne can enjoy special discounted rates for a round of golf at one of the Nord-pas-de-Calais region's most popular courses, Les Golfs d'Hardelot.

From November 15 1999 to March 15 2000, Hoverspeed passengers can enjoy a round of golf on the 18-hole Pines and Dunes courses for just 100FF (£10). For a further 100FF passengers can also enjoy a three-course meal, together with a glass of wine or beer. Both offers are available on presentation of a Hoverspeed ticket.

Popular with cross-Channel golfers from the UK, Les Golfs d'Hardelot was established in 1911 with the Duke of Argyll as its president. Today, the club boasts two courses, the Pines, a parkland course with a unique par of 72, and the newer Dunes. Les Golfs d'Hardelot is twinned with Wentworth in the UK and is a qualifying course for the PGA Seniors Tour.

Hardelot is just ten minutes drive from Boulogne, which is itself only 55 minutes away from Folkestone on Hoverspeed's swift Seacat service. D ay trips start from just UKP49 for a car and up to nine passengers.

Passengers are advised to book the golf in advance by contacting Les Golfs d'Hardelot direct on 00 33 321 83 73 10.
