The first edition of the Five Nations Celebrity Trophy will take place this Friday on a spectacular mean course. During this original competition, club members will team up with stars from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about swing. Jean-Michel Save and Bruno Taloche are the sponsors of the event, which also has La Libre as participants. Michel Pred’homme, Marc DeGrisse, Geert de Vlieger, Wesley Sonk, Olivier Rochas, Javier Malis, Dominic Monami, Renaud Rutan, Tex, Sarah Grosjean and Arnaud Tsmere are among the many guests. This means there will be entertainment and good humor on the greenery and during the nineteenth hole with various competitions and activities, including an auction to support the non-profit organization Rves-Assis, which helps people with disabilities.
The “Five Nations Golf Club” now brings together, within a single structure, two “championship courses”: the first is located in Meen, the second in Derbuy. “Perfectly maintained, they complement perfectly. Designed by legendary South African champion Gary Player, Pisces is a very scenic course with breathtaking holes. Durbuy, the work of Fred Hawtry, is a bit more winding and technical. In both cases, players of all levels will take real pleasure in the challenge” summarizes the club’s “head pro” Laurent Richard.
Golf has become a new tourist attraction for the small and so popular – city of Derbuy. It is no coincidence that Mark Cooke became a shareholder of “La Petit Mervelle”, the holding company that oversees Adventure Valley Park, the hotel-restaurant Le Sanglier and Five Nations GC.
“We know how Epicurean golfers are. They certainly love to explore new avenues. But they also enjoy the art of living, travel, family trips, culinary art. In Durbuy, we now offer them tailor-made stays. can provide a global experience across the globe,” says Bart Maarten, CEO of the unit.
Five Nations offers a variety of packages to quench the birdie’s thirst for swing enthusiasts. Mean Course also has its own hotel along the fairway. “And we also host seminars and team building,” says Valerie Sparks, the club’s golf manager. There’s no better place to recharge your batteries than in the heart of the Ardennes, in a buzzing setting.
This Friday’s Celebrity Tournament is part of Derbuy’s desire to make “the place to be” on the greens.
