Golfing in Barcelona
Barcelona has long been renowned as wonderful holiday destination, but although surrounded by many fine golf courses, it was until recently not regarded as a golf holiday destination.
This was because the courses in the Barcelona area were all private members clubs, and it was very difficult for visiting golfers to book a round on any of them.
Now, however, the situation has comletely changed. Not only do the majority of golf clubs in the Barcelona area sell tee times to visitors, they are actively encouraging holiday golfers to visit them and play on their courses.
This means that golfers can now combine the pleasures of one of the world's
greatest cities with a great golfing break.
