Major Flora Conversion at European Tour Destination Terre Blanche

13 May 2019

Globally renowned European Tour destination and winner of Best Golf Resorts in Continental Europe at the 2019 Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Awards, Terre Blanche is replacing the grass on both of its two 18-hole championship golf courses in the luxury resort’s latest step towards sustainable development.

The unprecedented process is currently underway with a special team to replace the flora of tees, semi-roughs and fairways on both Le Château and Le Riou courses, changing them to Bermuda Grass Riviera. Not only will this reduce water consumption, but it will also reduce the use of phytosanitary products and offer optimal golf ball lift, enhancing the golfing experience on two of the world’s most prestigious golf courses.

The initial operation will be implemented by May 28th 2019, with the aim of both courses being fully composed of Bermuda Grass Riviera by summer 2020. In light of this, the hotel has recently been awarded the ‘Silver label’ bestowed by the French Golf Federation and the National History Museum of Natural History as part of the ‘Golf for Biodiversity’ programme.

Located just 30 minutes from Cannes, a quick 3 hour trip from London, the 750-acre luxury resort is designed to emulate a medieval Provençal village tumbling through the forest and is the only property of its kind in the region. Commanding panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, the property offers guests Michelin starred dinning, an award-winning spa, an azure infinity pool. Nestled in unspoilt nature, Terre Blanche prides itself on its ecologically friendly approach, focus on organic and recyclable products and is home to over 100 species of wildlife.
