Club de Golf Terramar lies just outside the small coastal town of Sitges, near the Catalan capital of Barcelona. Terramar was founded in 1922 when Tom Simpson laid out the original 18-holes and the course has undergone many alterations since then – Jim Fazio Golf Design carried out some changes of note back in 1993 when they redesigned, reshaped and regrassed the layout, altering the routing to its present configuration. More recently a major renovation has been completed by Mackenzie & Ebert. Its par-72, 18-hole layout has been home to the National Championships of Spain, and has also had professional golfer Sergio García return time and time again to enjoy the course.
Unusually, the main railway line south from Barcelona cuts through the property and holes 5 to 17 are played on the north side of the tracks (where four ponds come into play) with the remaining holes routed on the coastal side. The four par threes on the card are all testing holes (in excess of 180 yards from the tee) but, contrastingly, three of the four par five holes are relatively short, presenting good birdie opportunities.
With 300 days of sunshine a year the location makes a wonderful climate to play golf whenever you like. The course is flat with carefully placed water hazards and is neither too long or too short making the course varied, but not too difficult.
