Real Club De Golf El Prat hosts the Santander Golf Tour Barcelona

29 March 2021

Real Club de Golf El Prat has been selected, once again, to host another tournament of the Let Access Series and the Santander Golf Tour. Together with Real Club de Golf La Peñaza are the only courses in Spain to organize a tournament for a European tour that brings together great golfers not only from Europe, but also from around the world.

Under the name of Santander Golf Tour Barcelona, ​​the tournament will be played from the 20th- 22nd of October at Real Club de Golf El Prat and will also be the big final of the tour. Without a doubt, there is no better venue to end a long-awaited season like 2021 than in the best golf facilities in Barcelona. Our Club is proud to be the one to welcome female golfers to Barcelona.

Alícia Garrido, executive director of Deporte & Business, promoter of the Solheim Cup 2023, the Santander Golf Tour and two LET events in Spain: “Being able to count on R.C.G. El Prat to host a tournament of the Santander Golf Tour is always a luxury. But the fact that the tournament is also part of the LET Access Series, makes it one of the most important events of the season. We are doubly grateful.”

Championship course for the Santander Golf Tour Barcelona

Our Pink course, the favorite lay out of its designer Greg Norman, is well prepared to offer a demanding and fun course to the players.

In the first 9 holes fairways are narrower and delimited by forest where the driver is not always the best option. Even so, the course is long and the greens are quite big and fast. The second nine holes, are more demanding and require a good strategy from the tee box where recovery shots play a key role in ensuring a good score.

Alícia Garrido also believes that the Pink course is perfect for female professional golfers: “The pink course is one of the professional players’ favorite lay out, and I am convinced that this year we will have some of the best female golfers of the moment playing it. The tournament will be the grand finale of the LET Access Series, so we will have the opportunity to meet the future stars of the world of golf. I would love for members of El Prat to take the opportunity to see first-hand the incredible golf that the pro golfer have to offer. "

The tournament will have a total prize of € 35,000 to be distributed among the ladies who make the cut. In 2019, the Swedish player Johanna Gustavsson won the tournament and we got to spoke to her: “It's a good hole because when you play it you have two options, either you look for the green or you make a safe lay up. I have chosen the second option because the green area is very complicated if you go straight for it”.

In addition, the Swedish player also told us about her opinion of the pink course: “The Pink course is very interesting and full of challenges, especially from the tee. Also, the last 9 holes are very different from the first 9! I loved it. When I arrived at the Real Club de Golf El Prat I felt very comfortable with the course, the greens were much better than I would have imagined and my game has benefited from those good sensations. In the second 9 holes, there are many more slopes and you must have a very cool head to play them, position yourself on the good side of the green and know how to miss your if you must. I have hit every tee with a drive, even if it wasn't necessary, but I thought it was a good challenge for me because it is very narrow and I wanted to practice for the Women's Spanish Open”.

Real Club de Golf El Prat has always supported women’s golf and, this 2021, will continues to do so. Barcelona is great for golf, not only for their amazing golf courses but also because everything that surround the city, the proximity to an international airport or the beach. We hope that both the players and the members enjoy three intense days of the best golf.
