Golf International July 2014
With The Open starting this week at Royal Liverpool, it’s good to see Jersey featured in the latest issue of Golf International in a comprehensive article by Dominic Pedler who stayed with us recently. Jersey is described as a standout destination for ‘Golf & Gastronomy’ and we get a great write up as well. Thanks Dominic.
GOLF & GASTRONOMY THE ATLANTIC HOTEL
Here at Gi we like to combine golf with gastronomy,wherever possible, and Jersey represents a standout destination from our recent travel.In terms of the 2014 count of Michelin stars and AA rosettes, the island’s restaurants are only topped by the metropolises of London and Edinburgh. The obvious choice for gourmet golfers is the Ocean Restaurant at the Atlantic Hotel. Nestled alongside the double dogleg 4th hole at La Moye, the hotel itself is a perfect base for golf and has a close relationship with the club. Enjoying the same breathtaking view of St Ouen's Bay, the stylish and friendly Atlantic is regularly voted one of the finest hotels in the British Isles, and is among of the exclusive Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Featured recently in an episode of The Apprentice, the Atlantic is certainly worthy of a Sir Alan Sugar “treat”, starting with the exceptional cuisine of star chef, Mark Jordan, who also has a fashionable bistrot on St Aubin’s Bay. Impressing the taste buds of the Michelin inspectors in the latest Guide is Jordan’s langoustine tails with oyster mayonnaise; pot-roast pigeon; and pistachio cake with crème fraîche sorbet – all with locally sourced ingredients.
