Golf tournaments at Real Club de Golf El Prat
The most exclusive Club of Barcelona hosts around 80 amateur tournaments every year so that members and visitors can test their game on the two courses designed by golf legend Greg Norman, the Pink and the Yellow courses.
The demanding and technical Pink is an opportunity to play a competition course near the city of Barcelona where great golfers, like Severiano Ballesteros or Tom Watson, have competed and won.
The wider and more affordable Yellow is the perfect course for any level of player who wants to enjoy a course in great conditions and still shoot a good score. In 2020, the yellow course has been remodeled, with Greg Norman’s supervision, with the intention to have a more sustainable golf course and improve its playability. The plan includes the reduction of the number of bunkers and the re-design of some others but maintaining the level of play, among other things. Without a doubt, it is the right time to come and play Barcelona´s best golf courses.
