Destination Golf Catalonia 2015 2016 - Page 63

Barcelona Golf Resort Barcelona Golf Club was designed by Jose Maria Olazabal and founded in 1990, it has two courses approved by the RFEG: the Masia Course and the Sant Esteve Executive Course. The two courses are distinctly different, although both are designed by Olazabal;Barcelona Golf Club is a very demanding and tight course even for the best of golfers and is sure to prove a test of character (it is advisable to use a buggy on this course as it is hilly and tiring for some). The shorter 9-hole course however is less demanding and a pleasant playing experience. Previously called the Masia Bach Golf Club, this highly rated course is beautifully maintained and has hosted numerous professional tournaments including the 2007 Catalonia Ladies Masters, part of the Ladies European Tour. Set on the border of Spain’s renowned Penedes wine growing region, Barcelona Golf Club commands some spectacular views of the Montserrat Mountain. Barcelona Golf Club is complemented with the 4 star, comfortable and modern 150 bed. The Hotel overlooks the 1st and 18th holes and is an ideal base to play golf and also to visit Montserrat and the Penedes wine region. 61
