Terre Blanche Golf Club - Le Château Course

France, South France
4.4 (5)
Designer: Dave Thomas
Course Opened: 2000

Terre Blanche was built on 300 hectares of wild countryside in Provence, where, rather than dominating, it co-exists with nature. Everything has been done to preserve the area’s original plant life and guarantee that the construction blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscapes of Pays de Fayence.

The resort was developed by Dietmar Hopp, who discovered the Terre Blanche site in the late 1990s. Hopp instantly fell in love with it even though it was little more than a wilderness at the time, with a few sad remnants of a long-abandoned project. Yet passionate golfer Dietmar wasn’t interested in what hadn’t worked in the past but rather what could be achieved in the immense space before him. He had the feeling that his dreams were just at his fingertips, and that he would stick at it come what may.

The 18-hole Chateau Course was designed by Dave Thomas and opened in 2000. The course is 6616 metres / 7235 yards long and the most demanding of the two courses at Terre Blanche. The bunkers and greens enable players to experience the true playing conditions of a championship course. Le Chateau course stands out for its spectacular water features. Each year in September Le Chateau Course hosts the ‘French Riviera Masters’, the only Senior European Tour championship in France.
