(PRWEB UK) 5 March 2012
DSG, through their Golf news website Golf.co.uk announced Terre Blanche in Provence became the seventh French Golf destination to feature on the European Tour when The European Tour recently announced its selection for the 2013 season. With no fewer than seven tournaments featured on the European Tour, The European Senior Tour and the Challenge Tour, France continues to position itself as a serious player for Golf before it hosts the biggest Golf event of them all, The Ryder Cup in 2018.
Terre Blanche is a five-star destination and attracts visitors from around the world. Director of Golf Jean-Marie Casella says “We offer a typical Provence experience with our five-star hotel facilities which are second to none and perfectly complement the two challenging and varied golf courses. There is plenty to do on site with the Spa, Kids’ Club and Golf Academy, all just a short drive from Cannes on the Cote d’Azur”. Casella added that the club offers exciting features with their luxurious five star hotel and top-notch club facilities. The club also has an in-built Spa, Kids’ Club and Golf Academy, a mere few miles from Cannes on the Cote d’Azur. Terre Blanche is also the host of the French national amateur squad and Casella hoped that one of the distinguished players will hopefully make it to the Ryder Cup European team squad in 2018. As well as the two on-site courses, there are the gems of Taulane, Saint Endreol, Barbaroux, Cannes Mougins and Royal Mougins to enjoy.
With tour-hosting courses around Paris, the South, Brittany and Alsace, the North, Rhone-Alpes and Languedoc Rousillon, there’s first-class golf throughout the country with over 500 courses in total, 19 of which rate among Europe’s Top 100.
“France has offered great golf for many years but it’s only recently that the powers-that-be have decided to shout about it” says Morgan Clarke, Managing Director French Golf Holidays, the leading holiday for golf in France. “What’s more, the quality of their players is also exceptional - there are well over 50 French players on the combined tours and that stems from playing exceptional courses as a Junior and having access to first-class golf practice facilities”
French green-fees are attractive compared to other leading golf destinations and there’s the famous French “art de vivre” that all levels of players enjoy.
“I’m lucky enough to have played nearly all the courses in France and many more around the world and there are no fewer than four French courses in my personal Top 10: Les Bordes, Morfontaine, Fontainebleau and Seignosse. And of course, France is coming back into flavour because it’s easy to get to by car and the cost of flights are going up and up”.
