Golf

In Our Opinion

A well established event played at an award winning sports complex, the tournament features Channel Islands, UK and occassionally, International teams. The stunning island of Jersey has a rich and varied history with a mix of British and French influences, and its off shore tax status helps keep prices reasonable. St Helier, the capital, has excellent nightlife including many award winning restaurants.
