Madrid, Destination of Excellence and Golf Courses
It is true that Madrid has always been one of the most attractive capitals in Europe. But lately, due to the pandemic, it has been perhaps the only one that has remained alive and open. For this reason, it has become a preferred destination as a symbol and example for the whole world and a great attraction for golf tourists who want to come and discover Madrid golf courses.
Not only in Spain, but also in Europe and other countries, the idea that Madrid is a place to be imitated has become popular. We have been the jealousy of many, and the object of desire of almost everyone.
A place of freedom.
Madrid has evolved spectacularly and has become a Destination of Excellence. And with a golf product that is also excellent.
Hotels and restaurants
In the years of the pandemic, five of the world’s most important hotel companies opened hotels in Madrid and only in Madrid. Specifically, Four Seasons, Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Rosewood and Marriott. And there are still some properties to be opened.
At the same time, new restaurants of all levels, of all types and trends were opened almost daily. And some classics reopened with the same quality as before, such as the Ritz Hotel, the Zalacaín or the former Jockey, now called the Saddle.
If you are going to play golf, there are still no golf resorts close to the city centre. However, you will find plenty of accommodation with easy access to Madrid’s golf courses.
Markets, bars and taverns
At the same time, more and more Municipal Markets have been created, twenty-three at present, something that no other city in Europe has. And the bars and taverns that have allowed Madrileños and tourists to come and «tomar cañas» (have a beer) continue to operate.
Madrid Golf courses
Madrid has more than 30 golf courses, many of which have seen some of the best players of the European Tour, play on their courses. Real Club Golf La Moraleja, Real Sociedad or Club de Campo Villa de Madrid are so popular but not easy to get a tee time during the weekend.
There is no doubt that we must highlight the three best golf courses near Madrid. With easy access to the golf tourist who comes to Madrid and where you can book the greenfee directly.
- Golf Santander, TOP course in Spain and venue of the Santander Bank in Boadilla del Monte. Where Gareth Bale plays golf in Madrid.
- Centro Nacional Golf, Spanish Golf Federation home course. Where Jon Rahm won in 2018 during the European Tour Madrid Open.
- Retamares, members’ course with impeccable maintenance.
All of them can be combined with other Madrid public golf courses or member’s only courses, fun, and everything you want.
Just come and get your tee time.
In Madrid everything is possible.
In addition to gastronomic culture, Madrid has made a significant step forward in terms of other aspects of culture.
Madrid now has more musical comedies than London. It should be considered that one of the ways in which modern cities demonstrate their vitality is precisely through musical comedies which, in a way, are a successor and complement to what the world of opera was in its day.
Art, Theatre, Music and Business
Madrid, in addition to maintaining all its museums (some of them of the highest international level), has held and continues to hold, more art exhibitions in these years of pandemic than many other major cities. Also in the world of theatre, in addition to all the official ones that remain open, Madrid currently offers almost more alternative theatre performances than New York, the city that has always boasted of being the «capital» of theatre.
From a musical point of view, in addition to the Teatro Real de la Ópera, the Auditorio Nacional and many other traditional venues, Madrid has been filled with music on every corner and has organised music festivals like very few other countries. Even when it comes to football, Madrid has four teams in the first division, something that no other European city has. It has more football matches and more sporting events than any other city.
And, in recent years, something absolutely unique has happened. A multitude of large, small and medium-sized companies have set up in Madrid, and thousands of jobs have been created. All of this has been achieved by lowering taxes and favouring the creation of spaces for individual, private and social promotion.
The illusion of being in Madrid: tourists
Madrid has always been a favourite destination for Spaniards from other regions, especially those closest to Madrid. And it has always received a large number of foreigners, although perhaps less than other cities such as Barcelona. Now things are changing. Madrid has become a place that everyone wants to visit. Spaniards and foreigners alike want to enjoy all its historical, cultural and gastronomic attractions and, above all, the atmosphere of freedom, happiness, and friendliness that the people of Madrid exude. And we attach great importance to the new golf tourist who comes to discover Madrid golf offer.
Madrid, Capital of the Kingdom
In this way, Madrid has gradually become an authentic capital, the Capital of the Kingdom, a central and differentiated place in the whole of Spain, as happens in other countries such as France with Paris or England with London.
Madrid is a city full of culture, history, and gastronomy. But it is also a great place for golfers, with a good deal of excellent golf courses. The Spanish Capital also offers an amazing shopping experience and golf is a powerful attraction.
Not only is it a great place to visit for its architecture, museums, and restaurants, but it’s also home to some of the best golf courses in the world. There are plenty of exceptional options for anyone looking to play a round of golf in Madrid.
