Terre Blanche wins the most prestigious French championship by teams

07 October 2020

On 4th October, on the Barrière International Golf Course at La Baule (France), Terre Blanche won the Gounouilhou Trophy, the most prestigious French championship by teams in the 1st division which rewards the best French club of the amateur elite. This second major victory after the French Cup in 2019 symbolises for Terre Blanche a decisive step forward with a club that has been committed to golfing excellence since its beginnings.

In the final, against the team of Bussy Guermantes, defending champions, Terre Blanche won by a score of 4.5 matches to 2.5. The challenging weather conditions, the suspense of the games, as well as the exceptional team spirit of its players made for an exciting match.

Terre Blanche distinguished itself in this competition thanks to the talent of its world-class players and long-term teamwork. Under the guidance of the Terre Blanche Golf Academy led by Vincent Jouhaud and Jean-Jacques Rivet (Biomecaswing), the players were able to train and develop their talent within a structure that is unique in Europe.

This victory is the achievement of an ambitious sport project initiated almost 10 years ago, mainly by Jean-Marie Casella, Director of Terre Blanche Golf, with the support of the Terre Blanche Sports Association and backed by Messrs. Dietmar and Oliver Hopp, the President and all the management teams. It is also the sign of an omnipresent level of excellence in all its activities, and confirms Terre Blanche’s position as a major player on the golfing scene.
