Welcome to the 33th European Senators Golf Championship 2024

August 29 - September 1, 2024 : A Historical Weekend

Dear European Jaycee Golf Senators, Jaycees and friends,

Hope you had wonderful Easter Holidays with friends and family.

This year started with the sudden passing away of our ESGC president Rudolf von Bachellé.
We will miss his vision and leadership, but will make sure to honor him at our 33th Championship program.

Last year Rudolf expressed his wish to start this year’s ESGC Championship with a get together at the Waterloo Memorial site.

We think there is no better place to start our theme of “a Historical weekend” and hope you will join us on Thursday.

Mont Garni is waiting for you on Friday and Saturday, where besides the regular Championship you have on Friday the opportunity to win the one and only Rudolf Trophy.

For Friday and Saturday night we recommend the Mah Hotel in Saint Ghislain. This relatively new Hotel offered us a better rate and is closer to the Golf Club and Grand Hornu. Therefor we will use it in 2024 as Headquarter. For prices and booking code see www.esgc.info  tab hotel. (Note the special prices are valid until 29 July and 1 Aug)

If you prefer the Hotel van der Valk in Mons feel free to stay there.

We have 10 rooms blocked at Hotel van der Valk for those who prefer to reside in Hotel van der Valk.

We will have a historical, Waterlooish, musical weekend with Golf, fun and we will not disappoint you with our diverse Program.

Looking forward to seeing you at our Pre-Program.

On behalf of the ESGC Board and the Organisation team,

Welcome to Mont Garni 2024!

Best regards,

In Memory of Rudolf von Bachellé
