With its revival in 2016, the Spain Golf Tour has become an annual event, and recently the PGA of Spain held the 8th annual presentation at the Consejo Superior de Deportes.

A video recapping the highlights of the 2022 season was shown at the presentation, and Pablo Larrazábal gave a message saying that the first tournament on the circuit will be held at the Real Club de Golf El Prat at the start of April.

One of Seve Ballesteros’ goals was to create this circuit so that Spanish pros may participate and train for the major European tournaments. Ander Martínez, president of the Spanish PGA, said that the PGA “tries to choose courses developed by Ballesteros” to honour his legacy.

“Once again we come to offer a circuit that continues to develop and that will add eleven tournaments in 4 regions (Catalonia, the Basque Country, Madrid, and Castilla-y-León), the biggest number of events since the competition returned in 2016. And with the help of Turismo Centro de Portugal, they’ll be able to host 3 international competitions in Portugal”, he adds.

This year, three tournaments will be held in Portugal, two of them at Bom Sucesso golf course, located in Óbidos, north of the capital.

The PGA Spain Golf Tour 2023 schedule will feature 11 events, the most in 8 years, starting with Pablo Larrazábal’s second PGAe Open de Barcelona on RCG El Prat, which overlaps with the season’s first Major, The Masters.

The circuit will continue with the XVII PGAe Doubles Championship, which will be held at Izki Golf, a public course designed by Seve Ballesteros that features a layout of wide fairways surrounded by oaks and holly trees.

At the end of April, the circuit will head to Lisbon for the II Open Bom Sucesso PGAe, and Viseu, for the I Open Montebelo PGAe, one of the new events, which will be contested from May 5 to 7.

The 50th Anniversary of the Lomas-Bosque Golf Club in Madrid will serve as an unbeatable setting to celebrate the Madrid Professional Championship. And almost at the end of June, another course by Ballesteros, Meaztegi Golf, will be the setting for the II Bizkaia PGAe Open.

After the summer break, the IV Portugal-Spain Iberian Cup, in Bom Sucesso; the II Castilla y León Championship, in Entrepinos; the RFEG Professional Spanish Championship and the Circuit Grand Final will arrive, in which the top 40 of the National Ranking will participate.

Madrid golf courses change greens to white

The golf courses of the Madrid Community have changed the usual green of their meadows for pristine white, showing images rarely recognized.

The storm Filomena has left a dream postcard but the maintenance staff of all of them work tirelessly so that the golf courses can open as soon as possible and, in this case, be the refuge of many athletes who, more and more, come closer to the golf facilities to practice an outdoor sport and in which they see a safe setting for sports, away from the health problems that we live.

The Madrid Golf Federation continues to be the first community in the number of federated, with a third of the total in Spain and has almost eighty-three thousand members.

Tee Times Golf Agency is happy to suggest the Madrid VIP GOLF PASS, played on the 3 stunning courses; Golf Santander, Centro Nacional RFEG and Golf Retamares.
As well as the very competitive golf courses; La Moraleja, Olivar de la Hinojosa, Villa de Madrid, Club de Golf Aranjuez, El Encin Hotel & Golf.

Madrid a city for golf

If you are planning a golf holiday next season, Madrid is a good choice.

Maybe tourism is not one of the best options right now, but hopefully, it will be soon, so we invite you to travel again and discover all the places you wanted to visit before the pandemic. A golf trip to Madrid is a must, at least once in a golfer’s life.

It is a destination that offers a great variety of activities also for the non-golfing companion because there are so many visits that you can do while you play golf. You will have to take a day to visit the most historical and cultural places, a day to play golf and another day to enjoy Madrid with some shopping. If you have more time to explore and learn about the best experiences in Madrid, great, but if not, this is a plan we suggest you just in case you want to plan a long weekend in Madrid.

The Gran Vía is the main access road to Madrid and you will have everything within walking distance. There is a wide variety of theatres, stores, hotels, restaurants… it is very popular, and also very safe. The prices of Madrid hotels are also very reasonable for a big European city unless they match some important event.

If you are going to attend any of the theatres in the area, or you are going to move around the old part of the capital, we recommend you to stay in the old city. This area has been greatly modernized in the last five years and is one of the places you can’t miss on a golf weekend in the capital of Spain.

Gran Via, Chamberi, Barrio de Salamanca are very good options since the access to the exits of Madrid are very fast if you do not go in the rush hour.

We highlight the great and very central 4-star Hotel Princesa Plaza, with its spacious rooms, magnificent views and interior gardens.

From the city centre, you have easy access to play the golf courses of the Centro Nacional, Golf Santander and Retamares Golf.

You can take a look at the Madrid Golf Pass, a special rate for playing 3 golf courses at a very reasonable price. You can’t miss it.

Remember that both hotels and golf courses work with free cancellation policies up to 24 hours before arrival.

We would recommend the private tours with a private guide, as well as the established tours in a program that works very well. Both options list several different types of activities to see and do in Madrid, which you can combine with your green fee on the golf course you play. Tours can vary from a tour of the city to a local cooking class. And keep in mind that Madrid and Spain are not just summer destinations. You can discover that visiting Spain in winter may be more attractive monetarily and calm.

Private transfers will be organized from the airport to the hotel as well as to the golf courses and everywhere you need.

Tee Times Golf Agency is more than pleased to assist you and to offer you the best golf packages and all the necessary additional information.
