Characteristics

Club de Golf Vallromanes is perfect for all kind of players, ages and handicaps.  It can be demanding depending on the flag positions.  Wide fairways and demanding greens force players to use all their imagination and skill.  The two finishing holes on each nine are savoury. The ninth hole is a downhill par 5 is that has OB on the right and a grove of trees that is no fun on the left.  Your approach shot will present a green guarded by two forward bunkers, left and right.  The green is welcoming but tiered.  A fun hole as well as scenic.  The 18th hole is a wonderful par 4 to finish your round.  Big hitters will play a fairway wood to not drive through the fairway on the right. Trees, and closer to the green, water protects the left side.  The fairway slopes left to right.  Pulled left tee shots could end up on the fairway. The green, as we said has water on the left front and large bunkers to the rear.  Approach shots need some strategy, but once on the surface, this green will allow good putts to score well.  Another favourite is the 15th.  From an elevated tee the fairway takes a massive dive deep and to the left. Yes, there is OB on the left and a deep forest on the right.  Yes, there are a couple of stray trees that stick out to guard the left side at the dogleg.  And, yes, the small, remodelled green is well protected with bunkering.  It’s also tough to score on.
