In this idyllic landscape, just 20 minutes from Barcelona, Greg Norman designed 45 holes with a unique approach that fuses comfort, by adapting the course to each level and style of play, with beauty, by harmoniously integrating the seven tours with nature. In fact, respecting the environment in all its facets is one of the club's basic guidelines, which has earned it ISO 14001 in recognition of its commitment to sustainability.
Golf Course El Prat Pink-Open - 18 holes
The Pink course is one of the most enjoyable layouts – and course designer Greg Norman’s favourite. It starts with a narrow and very technical first nine holes and a demanding second nine where recovery shots play a key role in ensuring a good score. The long par-three 6th and the always-fearsome 17th are the most outstanding holes on this course. The daunting par-three 6th leaves few players unscathed. The high, volcano-shaped green bounces any shot that is not spot-on to the surrounding waste bunker. This hole, one of the course’s most memorable, will leave lasting memories. The 17th is a tough uphill par four where the tee shot is once again key to posting a good score. The bunker on the right of the drive’s descent is one of the most frequented areas of the course as players are forced to avoid the hazard running along the entire left side of the hole. The semi-blind green approach requires a high, well-directed flight to avoid the bunkers at the front and rear of the green, leaving a long putt on its fast surface. Perhaps one of the course’s most complicated holes is the 8th, which is again surrounded by trees on both sides. It takes a long, well-centred tee shot to minimise the distance of the approach shot to a small green well defended by three bunkers and the surrounding pines.
Golf Course El Prat Yellow - 18 holes
The front nine from the Yellow course is easier than the second, so you need to use that to your advantage before facing the nine longer and more demanding closing holes. It is an open course and therefore requires you to control the effect of the wind that can cause plenty of problems on blustery days. The eighth, 16th and 18th holes will have a big to say on how you score. The 498-metre par five stroke 16th calls for some careful thought and avoiding the bunker on the left side with your tee shot is a must. The second shot ideally needs to leave you 50-60 yards from the green to attack it from above. Even from here there is plenty of trouble with bunkers front and back and a green that slopes menacingly back to front. The 18th is a fantastic 426-metre par four finishing hole and one of the hardest on the course. This long, uphill hole demands a strong drive that should hug the right side of the fairway, leaving a long iron approach to a long green that is guarded by a bunker on the right and a hollow to the left.
