Huatulco Week Fits to a Tee
A duffer’s dream will come true at Huatulco’s Club Med on Mexico’s Pacific Coast when a special “Seniors Golf Week” is scheduled with nine golf teachers and professionals. Participants will spend one week in balmy Huatulco attending golf clinics, competing in chipping and putting contests, question-and-answer sessions, daily clinics and lessons. During the week, guests will play four 18-hole rounds of golf as the pros roam the course offering playing tips and suggestions. The package includes carts, green fees and practice range balls. The final day features the Club Med Amateur Open Tournament with prizes awarded by the pros.
Seniors Golf Week is scheduled for Nov. 5-12. The price for the one-week stay in Huatulco, not including golf benefits, is $650 per person, double occupancy, including all meals, unlimited wine and beer at lunch and dinner, evening entertainment, picnics, boat rides and use of tennis courts. A surcharge of $150 is levied for guests over age 55 who participate in the golf program. Those under 55 pay $300. Price does not include transportation to and from Huatulco.
