Barcelo Montecastillo Golf Club
Montecastillo, Andalusia, Spain
Barceló Montecastillo Golf & Sports Resort***** is a spectacular hotel in Jerez that has recently undergone a complete refurbishment of its facilities, and it has been recognised with the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 3 consecutive years. We were also finalists in the “Best Destination Hotel” of the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence. The hotel has a privileged location, next to the Jerez speed circuit, and is just half an hour away from the Beach. Jerez Airport is only 10 minutes away, and Seville airport is just over an hour by car.
The Barceló Montecastillo golf hotel has large rooms following a new concept in room, the B-Room that includes a new design, conserving the classical and elegant style that characterises the hotel, and is equipped with all the comforts of a 5-star. It is the ideal option for couples, families and groups of friends. The spectacular rooms have views of the golf course, the luxurious suites and junior suites, and the villas have a private garden, where you can also accommodate your pet. All the rooms in the hotel include free Wi-Fi.
The hotel oozes health and wellness, given that apart from the spectacular on-site sports complex, it also includes unlimited free green fees on the 18-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, tennis courts, 4 paddle tennis courts with artificial grass, 2 standard size FIFA football pitches, a pitch and putt, a multi-sport court and jogging track.
The course hosted the cream of the European Tour for the end-of-season Volvo Masters from 1997-2001, underlining how good the Golden Bear’s layout is. Since then it has received a shot in the arm with a €2 million investment scheme, which included extensive olive tree plantations, a new drainage system and GPS technology.
The beauty of Montecastillo is that despite the fact that it hosts prestigious professional tournaments, it remains a manageable proposition for the average golfer thanks to a variety of tees. The internationally renowned course is undoubtedly a highlight of Andalucia’s rich golfing portfolio, and in conjunction with the tremendous neighbouring hotel makes for a memorable Spanish golf holiday.
Monecastillo’s golf course receives more than 3,000 hours of sun every year, helping to explain why it is such a favourite with golfers.
