Terre Blanche reaffirms its ecological commitment

05 June 2020

Terre Blanche, the European Tour Destination nestled in the hills of Provence, south of France, has reopened its two 18-hole golf courses as well as the Albatros Golf Performance Center to the public on May 15 with all the necessary health measures and in compliance with the rules of social distancing induced by COVID-19.

During lockdown, an expert maintenance team consisting of a greenkeeper, six gardeners and a chief engineer have been working on-property daily to ensure the best playing conditions to golfers as soon as Terre Blanche Golf reopens.

For many years now, Terre Blanche is leading the way in sustainable practices using a combination of state-of-the-art technology and more traditional methods. As part of its environmental policy, the resort continues its ecological transition by progressively renewing its fleet of maintenance vehicles with thermal engine by hybrid or 100% electric models whenever possible. In the light of this, Terre Blanche has just acquired two brand new Reelmaster® 5010-H mowers, the industry’s first and only fairway mower with a true hybrid drive system, which will allow, among other things, a significant reduction in fuel consumption but also in noise pollution to not disturb the surrounding wildlife. Additionally, Terre Blanche is the first golf venue in France to have initiate a flora conversion with the aim of replacing the grass on both courses, Le Château and Le Riou, by a new and eco-friendly variety of Bermuda Grass Riviera to reduce water consumption and the use of phytosanitary products.

After being GEO Certified®, Terre Blanche has more recently been awarded the « Silver label » bestowed by the French Golf Federation and National Museum of Natural History as part of the « Golf for Biodiversity » program. This label demonstrates the resort’s commitment in favour of sustainbility development and the protection of its natural heritage.

Nestled among nature in the hills of Provence’s Côte d’Azur, five-star resort Terre Blanche is establishing itself as a world leading destination for conscious travel. For Terre Blanche, respecting nature is fundamental and initiatives are in place across each and every corner of the 750-acre resort. The resort has an unwavering dedication to providing its guests with an exceptional luxury escape, where they can be at peace knowing that their outstanding experience is having minimal impact on the environment.
