    A captivating journey of cultural discovery in Madrid

    Objetos

    Located in the geographic centre of Spain, with excellent connections to the rest of Europe, Madrid is one of the world’s most culturally diverse and tourist-friendly cities. It is the third largest metropolis in Europe, after London and Paris, and offers both the enchanting allure of a venerable past and the comforts and services of a cutting-edge 21st century infrastructure – including several top-class golf courses. The ideal place, therefore, for a golfing holiday combined with sightseeing and other leisure and cultural pursuits.

    To help you take full advantage of your stay, we have created a special hotel and golf package, but first a little about Madrid itself…

    Experiencing a Mediterranean climate with continental aspects, Madrid has a rich heritage of historic buildings dating from the Spanish Golden Age (coinciding with the Hapsburg reign), especially embodied in the showpiece Plaza Mayor. Madrid also has the highest number of trees and the largest green surface per inhabitant of any city in Europe. These include central Madrid’s largest park, Parque del Retiro, and the Casa de Campo urban parkland to the west of the city.

    As befits a major global capital city, Madrid is home to an exceptional array of museums, highlighted by the “Golden Triangle of Art”, comprising the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofia museums – the latter displaying Pablo Picasso’s famous “Guernica” painting.

    Located just a short distance away, in the city centre, is the Hotel NH Collection Paseo del Prado, which has recently been refurbished and converted into a five-star establishment. Overlooking the Fountain of Neptune and offering a wonderful 19th century feel, the hotel is enhanced by stunning modern details and is also a convenient drive from some of the only courses in the area accepting non-members.

    Real Club de Golf Herrería, for example, is just 400 metres from the picturesque town of El Escorial. In 2001 its front nine meandering through an oak tree forest was revamped by renowned designer José Gancedo – popularly known as the “Picasso of golf course design”.

    Also close by is the Real Sociedad Hípica Española Club de Campo course, with 36 holes designed by Robert von Hagge and opened in 1997, and top equestrian and other sports amenities.

     

     

     


    Calanova is back

    A few weeks ago we returned to Calanova Golf (in Mijas, Málaga). Inaugurated in 2006, the course suffered several maintenance problems at the end of 2013, and the owners “recovered” its management in September 2014. We wanted to see first-hand the improvement work carried out since then, including a new fleet of buggies, the complete renovation of the greens, 3,000 square metres of turf for the fringe areas in front of the greens, and new drainage and white marble powder sand in most of the bunkers.
