1 18-hole courses
Antonio Lucena Gomez, Jose Gancedo
Mandatory call to reserve in advance. Real Club de Golf La Herrería was inaugurated in 1966. It is located in a plot of land known as La Herrería, full of cereal fields and prairies ('herrenes' and 'praderías' in Spanish, hence the name 'La Herrería'). The plot spans 75 hectares and is located in a unique spot: to the north-west of the Madrid region, on the south-east side of the Guadarrama mountains, on the foot of the Monte Abantos. The course is 6,122 metres long from the tips, with 18 holes. The first side was altered in 2000 by renowned designer José Gancedo. This modification respected the oak forest and the autochthonous ash and holm oak forest. Tees, greens and sand traps were redesigned, and water hazards were created in holes 1, 2 and 4, leaving the par for the course at 71 strokes. The second side is a more open space, surrounded by the amphitheatre formed by the mountains, crowned by the heights of Abantos, San Benito and Las Machotas. It organizes visits to the Monastery and the Valle de los Caidos. It has tennis courts, paddle and swimming pool. Using the card Gold a maximum of 6 annual visits is allowed.
