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.

 

 

 


A chat with Chema Olazabal

A few days ago José María Olazábal competed in the Lacoste Promesas at La Sella Golf Resort . The two time champion of the Augusta Masters, who holds more than 35 international titles, played in the Ryder Cup six times and who, as captain in 2012, engineered the so-called ‘miracle of Medinah’, took time out to chat to María Acacia Lopéz Bachiller about ‘the divine and the human.’

He came ninth in the last tournament he competed in, the Hassan II Golf Trophy in Morocco (29/03/15), and shot a round of 71 in the second round of the Masters (10/04/15). “I put in a good performance in Morocco, but on the first day at Augusta it all unraveled. After the Masters, I felt quite stiff, I did some training the following Monday and went to the Spanish Open with reservations. I couldn’t play. I came home, started to see several doctors, had therapy… And here I am taking anti-inflammatories and steroids, unable to do anything. If I’m still it doesn’t bother me but when I try to move around, my shoulders, groin, abductor muscles and calves ache. It was the same thing that happened to me during the US Open in 2007: overnight my joints started to ache and I couldn’t move. There’s no need to keep going over and over it, what happened happened. It’s annoying, without a doubt, being at home not being able to move or live a vaguely normal life- it’s pretty tough. But just as last time it happened and I was able to bounce back from it, it could well be the case this time too. They say that these things come in waves, cycles… Right now I’ve got to be optimistic and be patient- it’s a slow process, that will take around five or six months. It’s the same old story, but what can you do?
