Getting ready for Barcelona golf holidays

Why choose Barcelona for a golf holiday?

When you choose holiday lettings in Barcelona, you'll have some great golfing options. This is an area with an enormous variety of golf courses. You could focus your Barcelona golf holiday on seaside courses, choosing clubs like Sitges Terramar, Pals Golf Club and Costa Daurada Golf Club. These all have picturesque holes with stunning views across the Mediterranean. Fancy something a little different? Try heading inland. Fontanals Golf Club and the Real Club de Golf de Cerdanya are set high in the mountains, giving you dramatic views of the Pyrenees as you tee off at high altitude. All these courses, and many more, are easy day trips from Barcelona.

Where are the best golf courses in Barcelona?

You'll find some golf courses very close to the city centre. The La Roca Golf Club is just 30 km away, with 18 holes set in picturesque, rolling green hills. Opened in 2006, it offers one of the area's most modern golfing experiences. For something more traditional, try the Sant Cugat Golf Club. A mere 20 km from the city centre, set in one of the most exclusive towns in Catalonia, this club was founded in 1914 and continues to attract keen golfers from around the world. While these clubs are both highly praised, the cream of the crop has to be the Real Club de Golf El Prat, in the nearby town of Terrassa. This is a course with an impeccable pedigree that has hosted the Spanish Open 10 times.

FAQs: Golf holidays in Barcelona

How much does a round of golf in Barcelona cost?

A golf holiday in Barcelona can be rather hard on the wallet! Prices vary between different clubs, but the cheapest green fees are generally around €40 - €50, while the most expensive can be €120 or more. If you want to save money, book in advance. Playing midweek, particularly if you sign up for twilight hours (from 1:30 PM onwards), will help you get the lowest prices. A round of golf at the weekend will cost more.

Which golf courses in Barcelona have the best sea views?

Catalonia's spectacular coastline is one of its main attractions. Near Barcelona, one of the best seaside courses is the Sitges Terramar Golf Club. Open since 1922, it is one of the area's most popular courses. Its holes are not the most challenging, but tricky water features can make things complicated. The surrounding town of Sitges is packed with charming Modernist buildings and gourmet restaurants, so it's an excellent choice for a luxury holiday to Barcelona. If you'd rather go further afield, head north to the Costa Brava. The Pals Golf Club is highly recommended thanks to its glorious setting, in green farmland and rolling dunes close to the beach.

Which golf courses in Barcelona are the best for children?

It's never too early to get your kids interested in golf! Turn your family trip to Barcelona into a sporting holiday with a day at the Club de Golf Barcelona, set in the rural village of Sant Esteve Sesrovires. It has one of the best golf academies in the area, with lessons for kids of all levels and ages. The village is also quite charming, with old historic buildings for you to admire and traditional restaurants where you can enjoy a hearty lunch after the class has finished. You can also enjoy some golf without leaving the city centre. The Depique Golf Academy offers lessons for youngsters in the popular Gràcia neighbourhood.

What kind of dress code will I find in golf clubs in and around Barcelona?

The dress code at golf courses in Barcelona is the same at almost every club. You'll need to wear a collared shirt or polo with tailored trousers or shorts. T-shirts, tracksuits and sporting shorts are strictly forbidden, and so are logos and slogans. Your top must have sleeves. You will need to wear appropriate golfing shoes, without metal spikes. Socks must also be worn. If you have a handicap certificate from your local club, bring it with you. Most clubs will say that they require you to bring your certificate before you can play. In practice, they're unlikely to ask you to present it, but you never know.

Where are the best golf shops in the city of Barcelona?

As you'd expect, Barcelona has some great golfing shops. Most clubs have their own shop, but you'll also find options in the city. Top of the list is Golf'us, which has an enormous flagship store in the suburb of Sant Just Desvern. In this megastore you'll find everything from designer golf clothes to the latest, state-of-the-art GPS devices. Any keen golfer can happily spend hours here, so make sure you give yourself enough time to explore.
