Golfers can now enjoy a complete five-star experience by playing the exclusive Real Club de Golf El Prat, a 10-time host of the Spanish Open, while staying in The Serras, Barcelona’s most luxurious boutique hotel, after the two agreed a fantastic stay-and-play golf package.
Dating back to 1912 and one of the oldest golf clubs in Spain, El Prat, which boasts 45 holes over five Greg Norman-designed courses, is steeped in history and remains one of only a small number of clubs to have been granted royal status by King Alfonso XIII.
Real Club de Golf El Prat was recently named one of the 125 Platinum Clubs of the World – Five-star Private Club – recognition of attaining a standard of excellence by an international panel of experts, historians and connoisseurs in a confidential ballot, as well as being granted the Golden Plaque of the Royal Order of Sporting Merit.
The world-renowned course is the perfect partner for The Serras, a stunning 19th century Molina-designed building in the Gothic quarter that was Pablo Picasso’s first studio when he was just 15 years old, and winner of Trip Advisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award for the Best Luxury Boutique Hotel in Spain for three consecutive years.
Packages throughout the year to stay at The Serras on a bed and breakfast basis, including one green fee at Real Club de Golf El Prat with shared buggy costs just €225 per person per night for a shared room.
El Prat, which is just 35 minutes from the centre of Barcelona, also offers a modern and lively clubhouse and top-quality practice facilities, in addition to a 300m driving range and a host of specialist short-game areas.
Situated on the waterfront in the Ciutat Vella district, just eight miles from Barcelona airport and a short walk to all the city’s major attractions, the five-star Serras is the perfect base to unwind after a round of golf.
The luxury hotel, which has just undergone a €125m refurbishment, boasts a rooftop pool with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, a modern Catalan restaurant by leading chef Marc Gassons, who has earned a Michelin star for his creations, and a stylish, yet intimate, cocktail bar and lounge.
