A proud member of The Leading Hotels of the World and a European Tour Destination, has just been awarded “France’s Best Golf Hotel 2014” and “Europe’s Best Golf Hotel 2014” during the World Golf Awards ceremony .
Nestled in the eastern side of Provence, facing the perched villages of Fayence and Tourrettes, this exceptional 750 acre resort is only a 45-minute drive from Nice and 35 minutes from Cannes. Terre Blanche is a perfect getaway from the city, a paradise for Golfers, a Spa destination and a first choice for families.
Golfers will discover two championship courses, “Le Château”, and “Le Riou”, ranking among the most prestigious in Europe for players of all levels wishing to put themselves against these new challenges.
Raphael Jacquelin, Terre Blanche’s touring Pro, BUBBA Watson, Thomas Bjorn, Matt Kuchar, Ian Woosnam and other big names in golf have played at Terre Blanche and given the thumbs up to this elite golf resort. What turns them on about the Château, the course usually in play for international competitions?
“They love the quality of the greens, and there is praise for the Dave Thomas design,” says golf director Jean-Marie Casella. “They find the Château course very challenging, with varied holes, fantastic greens and wonderful views over the wooded hills. You need to play strategically to avoid hazards.”
Le Riou course (meaning “little river”) is set high above the valley and has several doglegs, tighter fairways, and large fast undulating greens. The wildlife includes black swans, a variety of birds and ducks and freshwater fish, and in keeping with the resort’s ecological approach, five donkeys may be seen keeping some of the undersbruh under control on the new plots of land available for sale within the residential estate.
Terre Blanche also features the first training center to be granted “European Tour Performance Institute” status, enabling all golfers, whether beginners or experienced, to learn golf techniques, improve their swing and practice in optimum conditions. The most effective training methods are provided at the Leadbetter Golf Academy (Alain Alberti, Head Pro is also coach to Raphaël Jacquelin and other players on the tour) and Biomecaswing Performance Center (headed by Jean-Jacques Rivet, Biomecanics expert for European Tour). The state-of-the-art facilities include 64 practice mats on 2 levels, repair and fitting TaylorMade Proshop, fitness and video room, trackman, outdoor and indoor putting greens, and short game areas.
