Terre Blanche is known for its one of a kind training center that offers to any golfer the best conditions to learn golfing techniques and improve. The most effective training methods are present, provided by the David Leadbetter Academy, as well as the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment of the Biomecaswing center.
The Albatros Golf Performance Center is the first training center to be certified "European Tour Performance Institute".
It is an exceptional tool. We intentionally created an extraordinary training site bringing our skills together with cutting-edge technology in the name of performance. This centre is open to all, providing golfers with the best conditions to progress in their sport. World-renowned professionals train here and they are thrilled with it. We are proud of the enthusiastic approval they willingly express, especially as it most certainly helped us become the first training centre in the world to be labelled as "European Tour Performance Institute".
Our infrastructure is on a level with our ambitions and the label that we now proudly bear. It features sixty-four tees on two levels, closed training tees, an indoor putting green, the latest high-performance training programs, two outdoor putting greens, two chipping greens, a grassy driving range with bunker area and more. It’s all here: drives, short game, putting, approach to the green... Every possible movement and technique has its own practical training area. Of course, the centre also includes covered, lit, heated spaces where you can train comfortably no matter what the weather.
The Albatros Golf Performance Center also features a fitness room equipped with physical training machines specifically adapted to golfers' needs, as well as a meeting room for up to 30 people (the Salon Albatros) with air conditioning, TV screen and Wi-Fi. Lastly, our centre is completed by our Proshop and the TaylorMade showroom, where you will find a club repair, maintenance and calibration workshop using TrackMan® and Select Fit systems to fit and assemble tailor-made equipment, among much more. And because our centre really is open to everyone, it includes a "handigolf" school with adapted access and changing rooms, as well as specific training equipment. The Albatros Performance Center is open seven days a week all year round and is accessible to novices as well as experienced players. You may train on a per-day basis or subscribe to a yearly membership.

Because kids are the future of the Albatros Golf Performance Center, we have established a golf school for children between 5 and 17 years of age. Our Juniors program includes an hour and a half of training per week outside of school holidays, as well as access to the training centre all year round.
Because we are counting on the future, the six best amateur French players and their coaches will enjoy 11 weeks of winter training at the Albatros each year for. Here, these young sportsmen, who became world champions as a team in 2010 and champions of Europe in 2011, find the infrastructures and training conditions that are ideal to help them attain the high level to which they aspire. They help reinforce the purpose and reputation of the Albatros Golf Performance Center as the golfing centre for elite players.
TAYLORMADE ADIDAS GOLF
Because playing quality and enjoyment are also a matter of equipment, we are associated with the world leader in golf equipment, TaylorMade Adidas Golf. Golfers will find the most state-of-the-art equipment and the latest fitting technology (SelectFit, Trackman and more) for the assembly of tailor-made equipment at the Proshop of the Albatros Golf Performance Center.
GOLF SCHOOL TRIPS
Because we consider ourselves a part of the athletic and social community of the Pays de Fayence, the Albatros Golf Performance Center receives students from the primary school of Tourettes every week during the school year for golf initiation sessions within the framework of an educational program.
Because one of our guiding principles is to provide a golfing experience for the largest possible public, we have created a "Handigolf" school at Terre Blanche in cooperation with the French Golf Federation. This school, run by the professionals of the Académie David Leadbetter, provides individuals with a physical, visual or sensory handicap, the opportunity to discover golf through an adapted approach using special equipment and training techniques. Sessions are free for all handicapped persons.
