The prestigious Catalan golf course welcomes back the biggest tournament on Spain’s golfing calendar.
(TRAVPR.COM)PORTUGAL - March 11th, 2011 - From May 5th to 8th for the ninth time, but the first this century, the Spain Golf Open returns to Real Club de Golf El Prat near Barcelona.
Originally opened in 1954, the course which was relocated in 2004 when the city’s airport was expanded, is now situated in glorious rolling countryside near the town of Terrassa and provides 45 challenging holes designed by Greg Norman.
With large undulating greens fed by a selection of fairways and punctuated with bunkers, the challenging terrain is sure to serve up a competition that will be awash with drama and skill.
The course is emblematic of Spain’s global golfing professionalism and prowess while the tournament, which is one of Europe’s oldest, being first held here in 1912 will attract a massive amount of international interest.
After Alviro Quiros’ victory in Seville 2010, local support will be strong for Spain’s players with the home-grown champions having a robust and lasting pedigree. Sergio Garcia and Seve Ballesteros have both taken the title in the last fifteen years.
Facilities at the club are world-class with a driving range, full clubhouse amenities, the excellent El Valles golf school and a superb 9-hole public pitch and putt.
