Club de Golf La Toja

Opened in 1970, this is one of the most famous courses in Galicia and, thanks to its location on the idyllic island of La Toja, it has spectacular views of the Ria de Arousa and an enviable natural environment. It is this privileged situation that marks the game greatly, depending on the wind and tide situation. It is these latter additional difficulties which make this golf field, whose route has 18 challenging holes for players of all handicaps, one of the most attractive for professionals and amateurs who value competitiveness. The Club organizes, throughout the entire year, many events and tournaments for amateur players who can register through their website.

Campo de Golf Meis

The strength of this field is the combination of the difficulty of his tour with the enormous natural beauty that surrounds it. Its location in the top of a hill from which you can overlook the Estuaries of Arousa and Pontevedra, is an incentive to any sports day. The circuit design includes holes with different appearances and narrow streets flanked by rows of pine trees that act as obstacles that test the technical skills of the players. At the conclusion of the game, visitors can approach the different towns along the field Meis — O Grove, Arousa …—to enjoy their extraordinary cuisine.

Real Aero Club de Santiago

Founded in 1947, this club Compostela conditioned facilities for playing golf in 1976. His 18-hole course is perfect for those players seeking challenges, since the route requires great technical level with very narrow streets surrounded by many obstacles as a large number of trees, small greens and some lakes. Among the activities organized by the Club are in addition to golf competitions, tennis lessons on four tracks, paddle tournaments, pilates classes, workshops with personal trainers and even classes of sevillanas and rumbas.
