Course of the Month

December 2019

Can Cuyas, Catalonia Catalonia

Leaving Barcelona's Diagonal, take the A-2 towards Tarragona and continue to Exit 8 (Sant Feliu Llobregat - Pol. Ind El Pla). Go to Sant Feliu Centre and follow the signs and you will find the Can Cuyàs course at Masia Can Cuyàs, s/n 08980 Sant Feliu de Llobregat (Barcelona).

Can Cuyàs is open all year. It has a clubhouse, cafeteria-restaurant, shop, changing rooms, club rentals, practice grounds illuminated with 38 bays covered, two putting greens, an approach area and practice bunkers.

The course is considered not very technical, with fairly wide fairways, without significant obstacles and with wide greens. The excellent greens putt like carpets. Two different tees on each hole facilitate an excellent 18 hole opportunity. 

The first teeshot must climb steeply upwards, but the fairway is very wide. Short of the green there is a lake! To the right, there is Out of Bounds  in the form of a small cliff, which leads to hole 7. But one's teeshot would need to veer very far to the right to go there. On the left, the Out of Bounds Road is closer. The green, like most, has an excellent surface that allows true roll on the putts. Around the green there are a couple of bunkers. 

Between fairways, small olive trees abound. The third/twelfth is one of the shorter holes and plays downhill. If you pitch too far right you could find the fourth tee, which lurks nearby. Long and left could find the lake! To the right there is a boundary grid of the field that marks the Out of Bounds. This green is small and rather flat. Behind there is uneven ground with olive trees beyond.

The tee on the final hole is bordered by cypresses, to prevent an unlucky pitch finding the car park, which is above the level of the fairway. To the left there is Out of Bounds, defined by the grid that leads to adjoining orchards. The car park is higher, so there is a slope on the entire right side. There are also trees fronting the green on the right side and a bunker on the left. Behind the green, the ground falls away sharply. The fairway is quite narrow (compared to the rest of the course). The green is uneven but without significant slope.
