Just 2 words describe the Novo Sancti Petri golf course which is nowadays considered by many to be the great Severiano Ballesteros' masterpiece: Challenges and Beauty.
Novo Sancti Petri golf course, the first one designed in Spain by the indomitable and demanding Ballesteros, has been laid out so that players can enjoy the entire philosophy of the game and of Seves indomitable spirit in its purest form.
36 holes divided into two rounds of par 72 (round A: Sea Pines, and round B: Centre). The first 27 holes were opened in 1990, and the remaining 9 were opened in April 2001.
Novo Sancti Petri golf course, with a total of 54 holes, presents a wide variety of undulating fairways and stepped greens, protected by bunkers, water hazards, and abundant vegetation that is typical of the area (pines, cork oaks, mastic trees, olive trees, etc.), which require players to use maximum concentration and precision when attacking the flags. The views over the ocean and the seemingly endless beach of La Barrosa, and the almost omnipresent sea breeze, make the game more difficult and more attractive along a course that is interesting at all levels.
The golf rounds at Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club are a challenge at the level of the most daring golfers. As is known all over the world, Seve was the greatest and most charismatic Spanish golfer of all time, and the most honoured at international level: he won two Masters at Augusta - becoming the first European to win the Masters since its inauguration in 1934 -, three British Opens, four Ryder Cups, a Prince of Asturias Prize for Sport, and 82 further titles.
