Real Club de Golf El Prat Plans de Bonvilar, 17, 08227 Terrassa, Barcelona, Spain
One of the most renowned clubs in Spain, Real Club de Golf El Prat’s origins date to 1912, the year when the Count of Churruca founded Barcelona Golf Club, which subsequently became known as Pedralbes Golf Club. Years later, King Alonso XIII visited and granted the club its “Real” (“Royal”) distinction.
It was the first golf club in Barcelona but, as the city grew and expanded, it was forced to move to a new location in 1954, between El Prat de Llobregat and the sea, near Barcelona airport – and was renamed Real Club de Golf El Prat.
There are five courses: Open (Abajo + Arriba), Blue (Piscina + Bosque), Yellow (Piscina + Abajo), Pink (Bosque + Arriba) and Green (1-5 Abajo +Vallés and 6-9 Abajo). They are all designed by Greg Norman Golf Course Design.The Open Course is the most demanding at the club and was the venue for the Spanish Open in 2011 and 2015. Your approach shot is important on this course as all greens are well protected and elevated. The Blue Course is the most forgiving course, although the back nine requires a more demanding strategy.
