Golf holidays near the Barcelona coast
Golf holidays near Barcelona
If you thought that a golf vacation near the sea in Barcelona was not possible, you still don’t not know about Terramar Golf Club. It is one of the oldest golf courses in Catalonia, with a lot of history, in a privileged environment that is part of the Catalan “Costa del Sol”.
Terramar Golf Club opened in 1927 with just 9 holes. Since then, the Club has been expanding, adding changes and building character until it is the course we know today. A gem near the Mediterranean Sea, designed by great experts like H.F. Hawtree and right next to the beautiful town of Sitges just 35 km from the city of Barcelona.
Terramar Golf Club
Terramar Golf course is a perfect golf course for families and suitable for all handicaps. Along the course you will find bunkers, occasional lakes, greens with tricky breaks, beautiful fairways hit by a sea breeze and fun holes where the longest hitter will find that, with accurate precision, they can sign a good result.
An 18 hole golf course, par 71 course, very pleasant to walk as it is characterized by its level ground surroundings and its rich fauna. But we have to pay special attention to the most beautiful par 3 in Catalonia. This is hole 3, El Mediterráneo, with 181 meters from the white tee box, is undoubtedly a challenge for any player. This hole is right in front of the sea, which makes it difficult to get to the green due to the offshore wind and the bunker barrier in front of an elevated green. In addition, the links-style hole has one of the largest and hardest green of the entire course. We can also highlight other holes such as number 15 (par 5), one of the longest with a dog-leg and a lake that guards the narrow green.
Terramar Golf Club also has a fine practice and short game area to practice your games as well as a pitch and putt where you can have fun in a different way. With these three holes of P&P you can gain precision and you will be able to encourage the youngest of the family to try golf in a safe and perfect area for them. In addition, the Country Club has a magnificent restaurant, a large terrace overlooking the golf course and the sea, a golf pro-shop, a full-equipped gym, tennis and paddle courts, a soccer field, club rentals, and a good fleet of buggies, electric and manual trolleys for their players. Without a doubt, it is a very complete Club for its members and visitors.
A golf course also for the professionals
In recent years, Terramar Golf Club has positioned itself notably on the European map thanks to the organization of a tournament belonging to the Ladies European Tour (2017-2019). The Estrella Damm Mediterranenan Ladies Open is a professional women’s tournament that welcomed the best players on tour and showed that Terramar is prepared to play at the highest level. Together with the sponsorship of Estrella Damm – a beer company – the tournament was a success with thousands of spectators while broadcasted on different television channels.
But this was not the only time that Terramar Golf Club has received professionals. Many years ago, great pros like Severiano Ballesteros, enjoyed this golf course at the Individual Professionals Championship of Catalonia. So, if you want to test your game while enjoying the good weather in the area and exceptional views, this is your golf course.
