Where2Golf says: 

Real (Royal) Club de Golf El Prat (Rosa course): El Prat's members must be delighted with the outcome of Greg Norman's design work at their new 45-hole golf club. The Rosa layout embraces tremendous variety with a tough but fair golfing challenge; with seven sets of tees, the challenge can be as tough as you like. The front nine is relatively flat and played in and out of a mature pine forest. When "in" the forest the narrow avenues of fairway feel frighteningly tight - not quite so bad when you play the course once or twice. By contrast the back-nine moves into a more open and undulating environment, with many really inspired holes and tremendous bunkering to match. The par-3 11th is as good and as tough a par-3 as they come; the long par-4 16th introduces the only occasion when you'll confront a water hazard. Add to this excellent layout the panoramic views gained from the back-nine and, like the members, you can also immerse yourself in the great pleasure of a round on the Rosa.

Did you know?

The club was originally established in 1912 as the Club de Golf Pedralbes. Several years later it received its Royal prefix from King Alfonso XIII. In 1955 the club moved to a new location between El Prat de Llobregat and the sea, and became known as Real (Royal) Club de Golf El Prat ("RCGP"). The golf course and surrounding area were eventually consumed by the ever-expanding Barcelona airport, forcing the club to move again in 2001. A runway expansion buried many of the fairways. | With 45-holes at El Prat's current home, the five nine-hole loops create many 18-hole combinations - the Rosa (Rose) course and Amarillo (Yellow) course are the most commonly played combinations. However, Blue, Brown, Green and Orange courses can also be arranged as the need arises.
