Course of the Month

July 2015

Badalona, Catalonia Catalonia

The course is located within the walls of Godmar castle and gardens in a natural and peaceful environment.

There are 9 holes but with double tees. Holes are narrow and difficult. In late July 2008 two changes were made.   The 9th was slightly altered and hole 17 (EPPA distance) is completely new. Another recent modification came at the 2nd hole where a stone wall has been built at the bottom right of the green.

The alternative 9 holes distances correspond to the EPPA/FIPPA norms.

The complex features ahowers and changing rooms, a golf school, rental equipment, activities for groups and businesses and ample parking.

The course is open every day of the year. except Christmas and Epiphany.

The 5th at 49 metres Stroke Index 17 is a spectacular hole. The pitch from an elevated tee must cross the stream and palm trees in front and to the right. Any pitch falling short risks a bunker and Out of Bounds lurks close by. The green is not very tricky but the position of the flag can change the difficulty of the hole.

The 120 metres 7th hole is Badalona's Index 1. The only danger is the stream on the right. There is little or no danger to the left where there is ample room for a recovery shot. Some trees on the fairway can cause difficulty to a low flighted pitch. The green is not very complicated.

The 18th 67 metres Hcp 10 demands another downhill tee shot. There's danger to the left where the road is out of bounds. Orange trees patrol the right side of the hole and more Out of Bounds awaits behind the green. The green has several falls from left to right.

Course address is Autovia B-20 (pota Nord) Sortida Badalona Est- Mollet, al Castell de Godmar
