Real (Royal) Golf de Pedreña

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1928

Real (Royal) Golf de Pedreña, the home club of the late Seve Ballesteros, is home to a well-rated and pleasantly testing golf course. This tree-lined parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy ... especially those that are played alongside the River Cubas estuary.

Harry Colt's masterful design contains plenty of golfing challenge as well as the opportunity to take in many panoramic views of the river estuary. Definitely one to include on your play list if you are in northern Spain.

Did you know?

The village of Pedreña, located on the east side of Santander Bay, is where the great Seve Ballesteros was born. Here, on the area's fabulous sandy beaches, Seve honed his extraordinary golfing skills. At the time, his uncle, Ramon Sota, was Royal Pedrena's professional and one of Spain's leading tournament professionals. Seve's father often caddied at Royal Pedrena. By the age of eight Seve, together with his brothers, was also a frequent visitor at the club ... as a caddie.

King Alfonso XIII conferred the Royal prefix on the club in its founding year (1928). By royal prerogative, at least 18 Spanish golf clubs use the "Royal" title, including: Bendinat, El Prat, Guadalmina, La Herreria, Las Brisas, Las Palmas, Malaga, Neguri, New San Sebastian (Basozabal), Pedrena, Puerta de Hierro, R.A.C.E. (Jarama), San Sebastian, Seville, Sociedad Hipica Espanola, Sotogrande, Tenerife and Valderrama. At least two other clubs once carried the Royal title: Royal Menorca (now closed) and Royal Deportivo Las Lomas-El Bosque, now called GC Lomas-Bosque.
