Real Club de Golf El Prat – Open tour, par 72 course

 

More than one hundred years of intense experience guarantee the prestige of the Real Club de Golf El Prat, known as one of the best fields in the international scene.

 

Javier Arana, designer of many of the best golf courses in Spain, was in charge of designing the project, while the architect JA Coderch de Sentmenat was in charge of the Clubhouse.

 

In 1968, Arana extended the course in 9 holes, which could be combined in three different tours. In 1988, nine other holes designed by David Thomas were built, providing the Club with 36 holes and the option of 4 tours with 18 holes, which were maintained until 2002.

 

In 1997, the extension of the Barcelona airport required another change in the location of the course. The location selected was the country estate of  BonVilar which has a land of about 210 hectares which is unique due to its climate and soil conditions.

 

The design was entrusted to the well-known Australian player Greg Norman, and on January the 1st 2002 the construction works began. The current course has 45 holes and the possibility of up to 7 tours of 18 holes. The official premiere took place in June 2004 with a match between Greg Norman and Sergio García in the Spanish Professional Championship.

 

The fairways of the course take advantage of the natural gentle slopes of the land, so the 45 holes preserve the characteristics of the area: forests, open spaces, grain fields, natural drainage, unevenness, etc.
The greens are big and moved, and allow a great variety of flag positions.

 

The hallmark of the Real Club de Golf El Prat reaches its maximum splendor in the sports area: it is the most awarded club in Europe and has many active professionals in different national and European circuits.
