Located in the heart of Provence’s Côte d’Azur, Terre Blanche Resort will welcome guests for the sixth Terre Blanche Classic Amateur tournament for a Ryder Cup Special Edition from 28-30 September.
New for this year, the resort is launching a special Ryder-Cup-themed programme to celebrate the globally famous tournament heading to French soil for the first time in its 89 year history. The Terre Blanche Classic Amateur Ryder Cup Special Edition package provides golf lovers with the chance to compete on the hotel’s world-class championship golf courses and make use of the state of the art Albatros Golf Performance Center. Guests will also have access to the award-winning spa, Michelin-starred dining, and for younger guests, the Kids’ Club.
A Leading Hotel of the World, the five-star resort is home to two tree-lined and undulating 18-hole championship golf courses, ‘Le Château’ and ‘Le Riou’, designed by renowned Welsh architect Dave Thomas to incorporate the natural Provencal terrain and stunning water features. Awarded ‘Best International Golf Resort 2018 – France’ by Golf Digest USA and ‘France’s Leading Resort’ in the World Travel Awards 2018, Terre Blanche is consistently a top global destination for golf enthusiasts worldwide, providing a first class experience, products and services.
On Friday 28th September, the programme commences with a training day on ‘Le Château’ or ‘Le Riou’ and a big screen broadcasting of the Ryder Cup. This is followed by an evening enjoying the hotel’s luxurious facilities, where guests can indulge in one of four world-class restaurants, or relax in the hotel’s multi award-winning spa.
On Saturday 29th September, competitors will take their positions on ‘Le Riou’ for the first round of golf, before enjoying a two-course lunch at the Clubhouse and a screening of the Ryder Cup, followed by an al fresco barbeque dinner at the hotel’s newly opened steakhouse, Le Patio.
Sunday 30th September will see the three-day experience draw to a close, with the final round of golf on ‘Le Château’, followed by a prize-giving ceremony and cocktail party.
In addition to the traditional prize giving, Terre Blanche is offering the unique chance to win a stay at Le Trianon Palace Versailles (base camp of Ryder Cup players). The prize will include two green fees on the Albatros and on the Eagle golf courses (2 on each course) at Le Golf National, the 2018 Ryder Cup venue. This special prize will be presented for the first hole-in-one made during the competition, or during a lucky draw during the prize giving ceremony.
