Playing golf has gained tremendous popularity in recent years as a result of creating new golfing grounds in tourist areas, which was once unthinkable. Barcelona is no exception and offers many golf courses and training clubs that allow you to practice your stroke or simply enjoy a fun day in a pleasant atmosphere. In this article, we will let you know where you can play golf in and around Barcelona.
Starting with those courses closest to the city centre, Golf Can Cuyàs is one of the best options you can find. Located in the bordering town of Sant Feliu de Llobregat, the facilities are just fifteen minutes away from the centre of Barcelona. This resort is an interesting offer for learning how to play golf. One of its great attractions is that it has a sophisticated night lighting system that lets you keep practicing until the sun goes down.
The next resort takes you to one of the most beautiful cities in Vallés Occidental, Sant Cugat del Vallés, which is located very close to Barcelona City. The Club de Golf Sant Cugat is an institution that has gained much fame among different associations of Barcelonan golfers and is believed to be the oldest club in Catalonia. Its facilities have been welcoming some of the most famous Catalan golfers and professional players can also take advantage of playing on the most beautiful courses. However, it must be noted that novice golfers will find the courses at this club considerably difficult.
Further north, along the stunning scenery of San Lorenzo del Munt Natural Park, there is a golfing centre called Club de Golf La Mola. Located close to this club, the beautiful town of Matadepera (also near Vallés Occidental), offers golfers a recreational resort with ponds and plenty of greenery. The course design greatly facilitates the games even for those beginner players. This is why this resort is the most recommended option for novice golfers.
And finally, we recommend that you visit the south of Barcelona, the tourist resort of Sitges. Terramar Golf Club has a very nice course by the sea, while the holes are less difficult than many other grounds due to their flat surfaces. What's more, the excellent weather conditions in Sitges guarantee plenty of sunny days throughout the year so golfers of all levels can truly enjoy their game.
