Five holes to watch at Royal Portrush
Dating back to 1912, El Prat is one of the oldest courses in Spain and remains one of only a small number of clubs to have been granted “Real” or Royal status by King Alfonso XIII. It has hosted the Spanish Open on 10 occasions and has welcomed some of the biggest names in golf, including home legends Severiano Ballesteros and José Maria Olazábal, eight-time Major winner Tom Watson and European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjørn.
Set across the 518-acre estate of BonVilar – just 35 minutes from the centre of Barcelona – El Prat makes clever use of its 45 Greg Norman-designed holes, over an exciting, varied mix of three highly acclaimed courses: the Pink – ranked the fourth best course in Spain by Golf Digest magazine – Yellow and Green. It is listed 16th in Golf World magazine’s coveted ‘Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe 2018’ rankings and 19th in National Club Golfer’s ‘Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe 2018/19’.
