For golf lovers looking for new courses to explore and advanced tutorials on how to elevate your game, head to the rolling green hills of Provence this spring.
Europe’s most advanced facility for golf performance, the recently opened Albatros Golf Performance Center at the Four Seasons Provence offers 65 practice mats, both indoor and outdoor, equipped with ultra-modern video analysis tools to help eager beginners and experienced golfers perfect their form. Indoor and outdoor putting greens, bunkers, a golf simulator and fitness room round out the practice area of the center, and a pro shop with a Taylor Made showroom and customized equipment ensures that you find the perfect clubs to tackle the game.
The Terre Blanche Golf Club boasts not one, but two world-class courses. Le Riou spans over 6,000 yards and features oak-lined slopes and winding fairways. The course rewards players with inspiring views of charming medieval villages and the Southern Alps. Le Chateau, with more than 7,000 yards, offers the more challenging game. This wooded, serpentine course features impressive water hazards and bunkers, as well as a picturesque lake reflecting a 19th century castle.
After a long round on the course, relax back at the Four Seasons Provence. This charming property compliments the French country aesthetic, with an open, airy, natural look that’s Provençal in spirit, but contemporary in style. Each of the 114 self-contained villas and suites display sleek wood and stone finishes, rattan chairs and loose-weave rugs, with French doors that create a bright atmosphere and open up to captivating views of the countryside.
Guests of the Four Seasons Provence have access to all the facilities of the Terre Blanche Golf Club, as well as the hotel’s spa and children’s activities, making this spot a perfect trip for the whole family.
