Golf break in green Spain – Ballesteros’ legacy

Golf break in green Spain – Mr Ballesteros’ legacy  – Four different courses – Three golf days – Wine & Cheese tastings – Fine-dining
Our golf break  in green Spain is a short golf holiday in northern Spains golf pearl Santander where the grass is naturally green and the golf is excellent. We play the fairways & roughs where Seve Ballesteros came up with the most unreal shots and we enjoy great gastronomy and wine in between the golf playing. The Royal golf course of Pedreña, Ramón Sota, Abra de Pas and Mataleñas golf courses. (5 days/4 nights).

When Seve came out on fairway and smiled noone stayed indifferent…he was one of few players that meant a difference for the game and these players are very few in history of golf! Mr. G. Zachrisson 2011

Activities on this tour
golfing_icon_2 greenThanks to Cantabria’s climate, the golf courses are well-watered and well-kept. Probably the best of them is the Real Club de Golf de Pedreña, with its position overlooking the Bay of Santander, making it one of Spain’s finest. It was designed by Severiano Ballesteros, who was born in Cantabria. Here are some notes about the chosen courses in our golf break in green Spain, taken from the Royal Spanish Golf Federation’s excellent website.
Campo de Golf Abra del Pas
In the small town of Mogro, situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the Cantabrian coastline, is the Abra del Pas golf course, which is named after its location, at the mouth of the River Pas. It is easy to get to as it is just 8 km from Torrelavega and just 15 km from the provincial capital, Santander.
At Abra del Pas, you will be able to enjoy not only a game of golf but also the peaceful and lovely natural setting, surrounded by woods and dunes of fine sand, which endows the fairways of the course with an incomparable beauty. Abra del Pas has nine holes and is open to the general public. It also offers beginners’ courses for those interested in taking up this thrilling sport, as well as advanced courses for more experienced players. Its practice and approach course, bunkers, putting green, changing rooms, cafeteria and rental equipment will ensure a pleasant day at Abra del Pas for all lovers of golf.
Club de Golf Mataleñas
This was the first municipal course in Spain. The course has nine holes and was built on a patch of ground (about 12 hectares) that runs down to the sea. Situated at sea level, with wonderful panoramic views, the course offers the player a great chance to combine peace and quiet with the extraordinary beauty of the landscape and enjoy a pleasant day´s golf.
Real Golf de Pedreña
The Real Club de Golf de Pedreña is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Cantabria. The location, the scenery and the design make Pedreña one of a kind. The layout of the course has been adapted to the natural topography of the terrain. This natural 18-hole course designed in 1929 by Harry S. Colt, is surrounded by pinewoods and has magnificent views of Santander Bay and the Cubas estuary. It was extended in 1991 with new 9 holes designed and built by Severiano Ballesteros. The extension consists of 7 holes running along the banks of the river Cubas estuary and finishing on the 8th and 9th inside the pinewoods, which are a typical feature of Pedreña. A demanding course requiring some pretty accurate golf.
