Barcelona’s typically moderate summer climate is more conducive to a comfortable and enjoyable game of golf than the intense summer heat of the south of Spain. Also, due to more rainy days (but fortunately far from frequent), the result is greener and more fertile courses. Indeed, there are a great many golf courses to be found around and near Barcelona.
One important thing to note is that courses are popular and typically the availability of spaces depends on membership. Thus it highly advisable, indeed probably almost always necessary, to book in advance.
Real Club de Golf El Prat
