At the end of the 1990s, Dietmar Hopp discovered the Terre Blanche site and fell in love with what was then a wasteland, a sad memory of a previous unfinished project.
Dietmar Hopp, an entrepreneur at heart, but also a passionate golfer, does not see what could not be done but rather what can be done.
Terre Blanche is the story of a development designed to provide the means for a passion and to share it, without upsetting the balance of nature, so fragile.
Prior to any intervention on the site, Terre Blanche carried out a phyto-sociological study of the site in order to identify the aquatic and wetland habitats, the temporary Mediterranean ponds, the forest stands in order to define the conservation issues of the natural habitats and the rare species to be protected.
These studies made it possible to define an eco-responsible approach to preserve a balance between the project's commercial objectives and the preservation, or even positive evolution, of the existing biological diversity.
