Real Club De Golf El Prat
Real Club de Golf El Prat is regarded as one of the finest golf clubs in Spain, having hosted more than 250 top-level national and international championships, including the Spanish Open on 10 occasions.
The world-renowned course, which is just 35 minutes from the centre of Barcelona, is steeped in history, with its roots dating back to 1912, while it is one of the few clubs to have been granted “Real” or Royal status by King Alonso XIII after his visit.
Set across the 518-acre estate of BonVilar, El Prat makes clever use of its 45 Greg Norman-designed holes, over an exciting, varied mix of three highly acclaimed courses: the Pink – ranked the best Resort in Barcelona by Golf World and Yellow. The prestigious Club is home to a modern and lively clubhouse and top-quality practice facilities, as well as a 300m driving range and a host of specialist short-game areas.
Real Club de Golf El Prat has played host to some of the biggest names in the game with top stars such as Spanish legends Severiano Ballesteros, José Maria Olazábal and Sergio Garcia, eight-time Major winner Tom Watson, and Tommy Fleetwood having featured there in various tournaments, while Masters champion Garcia and European Tour star Pablo Larrazábal are both members.
The multi-award-winning El Prat was named as one of the 125 Platinum Clubs of the World – Five-star Private Club – in recognition of attaining a standard of excellence by an international panel of experts, historians and connoisseurs in a confidential ballot, as well as being granted the Golden Plaque of the Royal Order of Sporting Merit.
