REAL CLUB DE GOLF EL PRAT JOINS IMG PRESTIGE GLOBAL NETWORK
Real Club de Golf El Prat, host of the Spanish Open on 10 occasions, is the latest club to join the exclusive IMG prestige collection.
The highly acclaimed Greg Norman-designed course situated just outside the city of Barcelona is one of the oldest in Spain, dating back to 1912 and remains one of only a small number of clubs to have been granted royal status by King Alfonso XIII.
Boasting an exciting mix of 45 holes over five loops stretching across the picturesque 518-acre estate of BonVilar, El Prat has been home to major Spanish and international amateur tournaments, such as the 2013 European Amateur Championships, as well as having held more than 250 national and international championships.
The highly acclaimed club, complete with modern clubhouse and top-quality practice facilities, has also hosted some of the biggest names in golf, including Spanish legends Severiano Ballesteros and José Maria Olazábal, eight-time Major winner Tom Watson and European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjørn.
With great transport links and only 30 minutes to the Catalan capital and the airport, El Prat has negotiated an impressive portfolio of hotel partners as part of a series of stay-and-play packages for visitors to enjoy the perfect golf and city break.
