Terre Blanche Resort in the southern France has opened a new state-of the-art golf academy designed to meet the needs of tour professionals and visiting amateurs.
Awarded No. 1 Golf Resort in Continental Europe 2018 by Golf World, the resort is a hub of excellence recognised at an international level and top destination for golfing professionals and amateurs globally seeking the best facilities, equipment, teaching methods and services.
The brand new campus and fitness centre will offer a host of newly curated programmes that range from four to 10 weeks. Each provides an unparalleled combination of biomechanical analysis, physical and mental coaching, giving players a unique opportunity to improve their skills and performance using the very latest facilities.
The Albatros Golf Performance Centre, which opened in January 1, is the only European Tour Performance Institute certified in Europe, houses the coveted Biomecaswing Centre, headed by the renowned Jean-Jacques Rivet. Utilising the latest biomechanical technology, the Biomecaswing concept provides customised programmes based on kinetic analysis of the body, a physical assessment and a precise analysis of a player’s balance and gestures that allows players to refine and optimise their game. To date, it is unique to the resort and there is no equivalent in Europe.
A Leading Hotel of the World, the five-star Terre Blanche resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, Le Château and Le Riou, both of which were designed by Dave Thomas to incorporate the natural Provençal terrain and stunning water features. The resort is committed to the environment and is one of only seven golf clubs in France to be GEO Certified.
Off the course, guests can experience Michelin-starred dining at restaurant Le Faventia, relax at the award-winning spa, enjoy the azure infinity pool with panoramic views over the surrounding landscape and a myriad of activities within and around the resort. These include visits to the local medieval villages, tasting authentic Provençal wines and olive oils, horse riding, mountain biking, cooking lessons, pottery and hiking.
