At the Club de Golf de Barcelona, the more demanding Masia Bach layout is very attractive and varied, and well-liked for competitions. The Sant Esteve layout is easier and flatter, perfect for beginners.
The Club de Golf de Barcelona, inaugurated in 1989, is very close to the mountains of Montserrat, one of the most beautiful nature spots in Catalonia. It take its name from the Bach farmhouse and winery, where the wines of this well-known brand are elaborated.
There are two courses. The first one, more demanding, has 18 holes (par 72). The second, 9 (par 31). Both were designed by José María Olazábal, one of the most recognised golf players in the professional circuit.
It covers about one hundred hectares of a rolling estate, with three central lakes and abundant trees. This layout demands of the professional player a good technique and high concentration.
New golfers can get initiated in the practice range, with room for up to 120 jugadores.
The clubhouse is a very complete facility. It includes an outside heated pool, tennis, paddle tennis and squash courts, sauna, café, restaurant, lounges and everything necessary for the practice of golf.
There are also nursery services and a kids sports instructor.
A 4-star hotel, the Hotel Barcelona Golf is in the same resort and runs special offers and packages for golfers.
The proximity of the Montserrat sanctuary makes it possible to visit the monastery. The Bach winery, with its 1918 farmhouse, can be visited as well.
