A ‘Centre of Excellence’ in more ways than one

May 7th, 2014

This week I have been lucky enough to visit Terre Blanche in Provence. This Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort, a European Tour Destination and one of The Leading Hotels of the World, has truly world-class golfing facilities: two top courses designed by Dave Thomas and the superb Albatros Golf Performance Centre, complete with Leadbetter Academy and Biomecaswing Centre. Under construction is the biggest golf course maintenance facility that I have ever seen – sure to become an international centre for excellence in Agronomy. I could go on (but not today).
