A CENTENARY GOLF CLUB (1912 – 2012)
The Real Club de golf el Prat (RCGEP), one of the most important and prestigious clubs in Spain, celebrates one hundred years of history from its origin in Pedralbes Barcelona in the year 1912. In July of 1912 the Real Club de Golf Pedralbes opened its doors. The king Alfonso XIII granted the title of Royal (Real) with which golf, as a sport was introduced into Cataluña. Throughout the years, the popularity in this sport and the expansion of the city forced plans for a new location.
In the beginning of the fifty’s a group of members of the Real Club de Golf Pedralbes undertook an ambitious project for a new club with larger dimensions and internationally first class in a lot located between el Prat del Llobregat and the sea. This way, in 1955 the Real Club de Golf el Prat was born as a continuation of the Real Club de Golf Pedralbes.
In 1997 the growth of Barcelona airport forced another change of location and the lot BonVilar was chosen, a property of more than 210 hectares unique for its climate and land conditions submerged in a precious natural park.
Past, present and future join together in the RCGEP, a project that has lasted 100 years. Since its inception 51 Spanish champions represent a world record, and through its golf course, now located in the lot BonVilar, only 30 minutes from Barcelona and with easy access to and from Barcelona airport, famous players like Ballesteros, Cañizares, Faldo, Langer, Watson and legendary players like Henry Cotton, Harry Bradshaw, Dai Rees, Antonio Cerdá, Roberto DeVicenzo and John Jacobs have been through. A dream that has lasted a century and that is still alive.
