Sparks similarities to the famous Valderama
When you turn up at a golf course you can tell fairly
quickly if the course is any good. When you drive past the
magnificent palace to enter the course, there are beautiful
panoramic views of the countryside. This private members
course has a traditional stone built club house, overlooking
a dark lush green course that twinkles under the bright
deep blue skies. Twisted cork and fir trees line the fairways,
sparks similarities to famous Valderama Golf Club.
The course is undulating bordering on hilly in some places
which make for a difficult tight course. It’s not
a long course as you are in one of the highest spots in
about 8,000 feet above sea level, which helps the ball to
fly further then normal. Although its one of the furthest
courses to drive to in Madrid
just under the hour, you will be very pleased you made the
the course hilly?
Is this course suitable for novice &
high handicap players?
Can you make reservations? Yes but always
Can you play without a reservation? Yes but
golf at the Fridays and the weekend is very expensive.
LOCATION: 55km west of the city centre, 50mins by
car. Please note that all times are approximate based on no
traffic from the city of Madrid.
Sometimes if you get caught in a traffic jam it can take as
long as 1 hour just to get out of the centre! Please allow
for this when planning your times of arrival.
RATING: We would rank La Herreria 7.5/10
for quality and design.

"Everything about the
trip to Madrid
was very good. It’s a golf trip that is completely different
to anything that I have experienced on the Spanish costas.
Unlike the golf courses which are full of Brits,
and being pushed around by the course marshals, we were treated
like very special VIP guests. Ok, only a few people spoke
English, but we got by. Royal Sociedad golf course
was excellent with a lovely clubhouse, the South course was
in my opinion better than the North, but both courses were
very good. All in all, the trip was very enjoyable and I would
have no hesitation in recommending it to anybody else who
would like to try something very different to the normal golf
