The first thing we noticed when we approached the clubhouse at Vallromanes Golf Club was the clubhouse itself, a massive 18th-century Catalán country house (masia) built from stone and aged with centuries of camaraderie, heritage and pride.

In many ways, the masia is a reflection of the personality of Vallromanes Golf Club, one of Barcelona’s five original golf clubs and, according to Vallromanes Commercial Director Roger Pérez López, a club whose own proud heritage focuses on its discerning members and its Hawtree-designed course.
“We want our members to feel like they’re at home,” Pérez said in an interview with us this past month. “People … choose to come here for the course itself and the tranquility.”
18 TEES: THE PERFECT FULL-DAY EXCURSION
Vallromanes is a par-72 course with four par-5’s and, from the white tees, more than 9,000 meters of emerald-green fairways and greens.
“The different pros who come here say this is a golf course’s course,” Pérez said.

Because Vallromanes is open to both members and non-members, it’s an ideal destination for travelers who want to add a golf outing to their Barcelona Experience private tour booking. The course is less than 30 minutes by car from Barcelona’s city center.
Pérez estimates the full 18 holes takes about five hours to complete and 9 holes take about three hours to finish.
Add an early-morning round, play nine holes and then head back to the city for an authentic Barcelona lunch before a half-day driving tour in the comfort of your own private vehicle.
THE CLUBHOUSE: HOME TO YOUR NEXT EVENT
While the course itself is enough to draw golfers from the region’s inland communities and the Barcelona coastal metropolis, Pérez said the course’s greatest strength may be its off-the-course services housed in its 18th-century farmhouse.
