Club de Golf de Barcelonawas Formally Masia Bach Golf Club was designed by Jose Maria Olazabal and founded in 1990. This is a very demanding and tight course even for the best of golfers and is sure to prove a test of character; the shorter 9-hole course however is less demanding and a pleasant playing experience. The readers of Golf Digest magazine recently voted Club de Golf de Barcelona the 5th best course in Catalonia. Set on the border of the Penedes wine growing region, Club de Golf de Barcelona also commands some spectacular views of the Montserrat Mountain. It is advisable to use a buggy on this course as it is hilly and tiring if walking. The course has now been complemented with the opening of the Barcelona Golf Hotel which overlooks the 1st and 18th holes.
