Ahead of the legendary Ryder Cup this September, which will grace French soil for the first time in its 89-year history, Golf Digest USA (one of the world’s leading golf publications) has awarded Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort***** the title of ‘Best International Golf Resort – France’ in its Editor’s Choice Awards 2018.

Acclaimed as one of the most influential media brands in the golfing sphere, Golf Digest USA’s rankings serve as a comprehensive guide to the best golf courses, resorts and destinations globally. Resorts recognised in the Editor’s Choice Awards are selected by the well-travelled editors of Golf Digest’s international titles, with the opinions of partners, professionals and seasoned golf travellers considered, ensuring that those honoured are a true reflection of golfer’s sentiments. This latest accolade reaffirms the unparalleled five-star experience, facilities and service available at Terre Blanche, confirming the resort’s position as the number one destination in France for golf enthusiasts and professionals worldwide.

Situated in the heart of Provence Côte d’Azur, Terre Blanche is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, Le Château and Le Riou, both designed by renowned Welsh architect Dave Thomas.

At the end of the 1990s, Dietmar Hopp discovered the exceptional landscape of Terre Blanche and fell in love with what was then a dreamlike plot of woodland from a project never completed. The avid golfer and entrepreneur had great vision for what the immense space could become. Today, the stunning location that is now Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort reflects the passion of Hopp’s dream, whilst preserving the fragile balance of its natural surroundings. An environmentally aware and carefully built resort and golf centre, Terre Blanche aspires not only to provide the upmost quality experience for its guests but also to enhance the economy and tourism of the region.

Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort ***** offers two award-winning Championship golf courses, designed by Dave Thomas and inspired by nature; incorporating valleys, lakes, gullies, waterfalls and forests. Located in the heart of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, it is only 35 minutes away from Cannes and 45 minutes from Nice. An Eldorado for nature lovers, the eco-friendly Provencal resort has recently become GEO Certified® (Golf Environment Organisation).
