A Golf Club near Barcelona
There are several golf courses near Barcelona that fit perfectly for your golf break. The good thing about the Club de Golf Vallromanes is that it is located just 25 minutes from Barcelona, surrounded by nature and close to the Mediterranean Sea.
A Club with personality
Club de Golf Vallromanes opened in 1972 and the talented F.W. Hatree, in the heart of the Sant Mateu Mountain Range, designed it. Its geographical location causes a moderate climate in the summer because of the particular vegetation in the area that creates a cool effect and, during the wintertime, protects it from the sea breeze. This area is also characterized by the abundance of pines and oaks as well as the its fauna found in the coastal mountain range adjoining Maresme, Vallès and Barcelona.
But what represents Club de Golf Vallromanes the most is its Clubhouse, a magnificent noble home, dating from the early 18th century, which you will not find easily in another golf course. Called Torre Taverna, it is the neurological centre of Golf Vallromanes and the beauty and history it conveys is breathtaking. There is no doubt; it is a Clubhouse like no other.
Services at Club de Golf Vallromanes
The Golf Vallromanes has a restaurant where you can taste its gastronomy, a terrace surrounded by nature with a snack-bar to have an aperitif before or after playing, meetings or party rooms, a card room, changing rooms and a proshop with all the golf equipment you might need.

A nice golf course next to Barcelona city
The 18 hole (6,044m) and par 72 is a fun course suitable for all levels of amateur golf. Golf Vallromanes is surrounded by trees, lakes at key points, large greens and defined fairways. Without a doubt, the player will have a great time trying to win the course with its demanding holes.
We can highlight the beautiful hole 18 that ends at the Clubhouse. The lake that protects the green complicates the second shot for its various breaks where strategy will play an important role. However, it makes the hole more fantastic and unique. Another interesting hole can be number 16, a par 5 dog-leg with a narrow green. It will be a great challenge for the longer hitters and pure fun for others.
Club de Golf Vallromanes has also hosted renowned tournaments such as the Spanish Open (1986) where the champion was the great legend Severiano Ballesteros. And, in more recent times, Golf Vallromanes has been in charge of hosting great players from the Ladies European Access in a Santander Golf Tour event. We can say that this is a golf course also for professionals.
