Barcelo Montecastillo Golf 5*

Signature Collection
Info Offers Course Hotel Reviews

The pride of southwestern Spain, Montecastillo Resort has long been a favourite of golfers all over the world. One of Jack Nicklaus’ most magnificent layouts, the course flows over the rolling hills of Andalucia, offering some fantastic views of the Spanish countryside. Often compared to England’s Wentworth, Montecastillo is a historic course. The host of the European Tour’s Volvo Masters from 1997-2001, this epic track has seen many golfing greats tee it up over the years.

Found just 15 miles from Spain’s gorgeous Atlantic coast, Montecastillo is in a great location, only 15 minutes from Jerez Airport and 30 minutes from Cadiz. The 5-star Barcelo Hotel at Montecastillo is magnificent, offering the highest standard of comfort and service. The elegant accommodation is decorated in Andalucian fashion, adding to the historic feel of the resort, why not go all inclusive for a hassle-free holiday.

If you happen to be a motorsports fan too then this resort isn’t far from the world-famous Jerez circuit. The resort has recently been refurbished and just oozes luxury. This is one of those golf resorts for people looking for something a little special, one to savour and talk about for years to come.

Montecastillo Resort

The highlight of the whole experience at Barceló Montecastillo Resort is the Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course. The par-72 is just over 7000-yards from the back tees but with many different teeing options, you’re sure to find a length of course that suits your game so that you can just enjoy your round.

This course is consistently rated in the top ten courses of mainland Europe, a title that is absolutely deserved. One of the reasons this course always ranks so highly is the meticulous attention to detail that in the way that the course is kept. You will find this course in nothing other than immaculate condition.

The large and inviting greens are fast and consistent with subtle borrows. Water plays a big role in this course and can give you extra-trouble on the closing three holes. You need to keep your wits about you right until the end of the round.

Course Information

Par 72
Designed by Jack Nicklaus
Opened for play 1993
Previously hosted Volvo Masters (5 consecutive years), Peugeot Tour (3 years)

Tees

White 6,424 yards, SSS 74
Yellow 6,043 yards, SSS 73
Blue 5,554 yards, SSS 77
Red 5,230 yards, SSS 73

Every hole on this course is special but the highlight is arguably the 16th. It is a classic modern championship hole, it is stunning on the eye. A fader’s hole, this hole gently curves to the right and features fairway bunkers, pine and olive trees on the left and a perfectly-placed water hazard awaiting errant approach shots. Whilst visually pleasing, this is a challenging hole and requires well-struck shots from tee to green.

With a championship course of such pedigree, you would expect the practice facilities to match and they do. The practice area is a great place to warm-up before you head out onto the course or to work on your swing. The short game area gives you everything you need to work on the part of your game that really matters, especially on a course like this that can have such fast greens in the summer months.

The resort also has a pitch and putt facility which has recently been expanded. If you’re travelling with children or new golfers, this is a great place to pique their interest in golf or you could just spend some time here as the sun goes down.

As you would expect at such a venue, buggies are available and are mandatory after 11am. The pro-shop is well-stocked and worth a visit for some souvenirs of your trip to the famous course. This is a world-renowned resort for a reason and its reputation precedes it. It will live up to this reputation though and it will almost certainly exceed it. Don’t miss this golfing experience.

Accommodation at Barcelo Montecastillo Golf 5*

The Barceló Montecastillo Resort has forged an impressive reputation in the Jerez area and beyond, not just as a result of the Nicklaus golf course. The hotel is elegant, simple and prides itself on ensuring outstanding hospitality.

The attentive service that all visitors are assured of will allow guests to focus on enjoying the sights of Jerez, the locally produced sherry, and most importantly Jack Nicklaus' terrific golf course.

In the on-site restaurant, El Lagar, you can enjoy the finest local produce and some Jerez sherry. If you’re into your health and well-being then the new feature at Barceló Montecastillo Resort is a unique is one for you. You can speak to a nutrition expert and have them create a breakfast smoothie for you depending on the nutritional requirements of your body. Maybe you could see what superfood helps you make birdies.

When you have completed your round in the heat of the afternoon sun and are looking to unwind, the AKADAMA pool bar is the perfect place. Enjoy a cocktail in the water as you boast of your golfing conquests that day.

Speaking of unwinding, the “U-Spa” at Barceló Montecastillo is an experience of pure indulgence. Treat yourself to a massage and some time to yourself as you allow the spa staff to do what they do best and help you unwind. Having just been redecorated, this spa has never looked better and the cutting-edge fitness equipment means you can stay on top of your fitness whilst you’re away too.

This resort is pure indulgence. It will take up a special place in your memory and you will certainly want to return.

Have been every year for at least the last 5 years and will definitely be going again in 2016...
The Hotel is top drawer, the staff are wonderful, the service is excellent. The golf course is a very tough test of golf and is not really suitable for anybody who is not a regular golfer, but, for a good golfer it is good. This year maybe due to the weather some of the tees were in poor condition and generally the bunkers were difficult to get out of as they were solid under a thin layer of sand. They have spent a lot of money over the last few years on the hotel and the course and it shows.

My Caddy Tip - "Stay out of the bunkers."

I would not go back, even though they offer some great deals...
The hotel was tired, the food was not great and the location was very secluded. Even though we had a hire car, there was nowhere really to go within an hours drive. However, the course itself we enjoyed and at the time of our visit, the greens were being repaired and airiated and what had been removed from greens were actually piled around or even in front of the greens.

Unbelievable value...
5 star hotel and course at two star prices. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here. The course is quite long and challenging, and buggies are mandatory for starts before 11am. We used our own trolleys, but be warned, there is quite a walk from green to tee in a number of places where housing development is planned. We had booked bed and breakfast, but the hotel offers a set price buffet evening meal (3 courses and wine) which was excellent value. Montecastillo is quite remote, but well worth a visit.

Hotel was noisy...
The course was good, although a lot of remedial work was being done. The 18th hole was dramatic and challenging but in a beautiful setting. This was our golf groups favourite hole. The hotel gave good value for all inclusive and service was good. The only criticisms were the constant daytime noise from the nearby Jerez motor circuit and the view from the front of the hotel which was just an unfinished building site.

Holes 9 & 12 are great par 5s but on this course you need to accept what your handicap is. Do not try to smash the course because it won't happen. Play to your handicap and you will have a great game of golf. You can play well and get 18/19 points on front nine, then you come up against the back nine, which is certainly a challenge.

The golf course was great...

We had a very good trip all in all. The weather the first 2 days was awesome but it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter...still great fun though!   

The hotel room was very nice, and had just been renovated. I believe they are renovating all the rooms so the resort is on the up. The restaurants and bar were well decorated with a nice friendly atmosphere and the food although basic, was plentiful and tasty.

The golf course was great. Overall the greens, fairways and bunkers were all in great shape. The paths are starting to look slightly worn and battered but that happens with time I guess. It’s a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test of golf and very rewarding with some breathtaking views.

The members of staff at the resort were friendly and helpful overall and the pro shop assistant was even happy to book other courses for us during our stay.

YGT were top drawer. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time! We got a great deal too.

We would definitely go back to Montecastillo Resort and always via YGT.

It’s hard to find a venue that offers better value for money...

I go away with yourgolftravel.com a few times a year and it’s hard to find a venue that offers better value for money than Montecastillo. We always keep an eye out for the unlimited golf packages and if you go at the right time of year, it’s an absolute steal. And let’s face it...in Spain there really isn’t a wrong time of year as it’s always sunny!

The golf course here is good fun and in fairly good condition considering the amount of foot traffic it must get. The tee shot from the final tee is great fun, with the Wentworth-like hotel off in the distance, beckoning you to finish up and enjoy an ice cold beer!

For a no frills golf trip where all you’re really looking for is lots of golf, a comfortable hotel and peaceful surroundings, Montecastillo really takes some beating, especially when you consider the price.

Thoroughly recommended, as are yourgolftravel.com.

We never tired of playing the course...

Just got back from our Golf Holiday to Spain and the Montecastillo Resort...what a place!

The course is no Valderrama but Jack Nicklaus has laid down a really enjoyable track all the same and we never tired of playing the course, even though we were taking full advantage of the Unlimited Golf that was part of our package.

There’s a good variety of holes and the conditioning, while not 100% immaculate, was more than adequate. The greens in particular (the most important thing I’m sure most would agree) were quick and true with signs or foot traffic only appearing late in the evening.

The only drawback was that play was a little slow. However we were on holiday and are aware that this is the case on the majority of resort courses...keep calm and carry on as they say! We certainly weren’t going to let the odd wait for a green to clear hamper our enjoyment that’s for sure!

The hotel is excellent and ticks all the boxes for a group of golfers. Rooms were comfortable, food was decent and having a few beers in the evening after a long day on the course was perfectly satisfying for our group!

The best thing about the trip? The value for money we got was quite unbelievable really...budget prices for fantastic quality AND quantity does it for me anyway!

As ever YGT were excellent and we’ll be in touch soon to book our next break.

The golf course was fantastic...

All in all, we had a very good trip at Montecastillo. The weather over the first 2 days was awesome and while it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter, it was still great fun! Just wanted to write a few points about the resort golf wise and generally:

1. The hotel room was very nice and had just been renovated; perfectly adequate for a golfer’s requirements.

2. The restaurants and bar were comfortable and had a nice, friendly atmosphere. The food, although not haute cuisine, was plentiful and very tasty.

3. The golf course was fantastic. In general the greens, fairways, bunkers and tees were all in great shape. I’d say the course is a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test and very rewarding with some breathtaking views throughout.

4. The staff overall were friendly and helpful. The pro shop assistance even booked other courses for us during our stay because we felt like more, more and more golf!

6. YGT were top drawer throughout the booking process. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time and a great deal too. Good job YGT!

We’ll be back in touch for next year’s golf holiday and with Montecastillo in mind, we’d certainly recommend it to other golfers.

Very good but challenging golf course. Fantastic elevations and pretty water hazards etc. The greens had just been worked on a few days before so were a touch slow the first day but still rolled well but they cut them the second day and played much quicker. Very enjoyable course. Would definitely go back and play it again.

Far to slow when I booked I did not boom to play two days with people I did not know and had no wish to play with but was forced to play with as the golf part of the hotel seem to think 5 and a half rounds in 30 degrees and over is acceptable. Indeed only played 13 holes Saturday as it had taken over 4 and a half hours up to then, Sunday was reasonable played 18 with a German married couple just over 5 hours and Monday played 9 as it took 3 hours 15 minutes up to then the couple who we were put with played 18 took 6 hours 40 minutes I am afraid that we did not book to fry in terribly hot conditions waiting on every tee golf was ruined by waiting.

This is a proper Championship golf course and not for the fainthearted or the high handicapper. It measures over 6,600yds off the yellow tees and every hole requires thought and accuracy.Lots of beautiful elevated tees to enjoy but hilly and long walks from green to tee means carrying a full bag is an option only for the young and very fit . We carried a half set for 9 holes on the first day and thereafter bought a 4 day buggy package at E35.70 per buggy per round .Overall it is a fantastic golf course for a mid handicapper. I am 64 years of age and 19 handicapper and 29 points was my best score of the week but loved the challenge. Lots of water so bring plenty of balls but it is well worth the effort and there is no issue about playing after 12 noon and enjoying free golf !!

Lovely course, unfortunately there was a large competition when we were there, they had block bookings coinciding with our times so we were moved and were then very slow. It was apparently sprung on the hotel by the competition organisers, we were told, but it did overshadow an otherwise superb experience. Hopefully next time this will not happen. The other issue was the buggies, quite old and doddery, as well as expensive, we were told new ones are on order for january but they do need updating.

Enjoyed the golf with some really interesting holes and a variety of challenges ranging from relatively straight forward to hard. Golf was not charged and was an “add on” but the cost of buggies made the deal less of a bargain. We mistakenly thought we had buggies included and then had to pay €48 per buggy (people who played before midday were €78). We felt a bit conned because of this expectation.

Although the rounds were slow - 4.5hours for a two ball in a buggy, you accept it as 'holiday golf'. We did get paired up after 9 holes with another 2 ball, which was fine. We thought the buggies were expensive - €48 per buggy per day, but you need one as the distances from green to tee were a long way.

The Hotel is top drawer, the staff are wonderful, the service is excellent. The golf course is a very tough test of golf and is not really suitable for anybody who is not a regular golfer, but, for a good golfer it is good. This year maybe due to the weather some of the tees were in poor condition and generally the bunkers were difficult to get out of as they were solid under a thin layer of sand. They have spent a lot of money over the last few years on the hotel and the course and it shows.

We used our own trolleys, but be warned, there is quite a walk from green to tee in a number of places where housing development is planned. We had booked bed and breakfast, but the hotel offers a set price buffet evening meal (3 courses and wine) which was excellent value. Montecastillo is quite remote, but well worth a visit.

Love it. Been back 3 times and it never disappoints...
Just love this course. Favourite hole has to be the 18th with an elevated tee giving superb views and the challenge of hitting the fairway! Coming off the green to the terrace for a cool glass of Sauvignon. Doesn't get any better.

A good challenge for all standards of golf...
The hotel food and drink was cheaper than expected. You definetly need a buggy as there are long distances between holes. A fair test for all standards of golf. Not a bad hole on the course and was enjoyable to play the back 9 especially. However, the course does need a little TLC in places!

18th was a glorious par 4. Hotel average, and no food after 2pm until 7pm. i.e. No lunch, so drinks only and limited choice.

The hotel was excellent, but we were disappointed that there were no organised trips to anywhere. We paid for transport to Seville. Also, there weren't enough sun umbrellas at the pool and you couldn't get a drink at the pool either.

Course can be overused at times. Walked the course whilst raining, should've used buggy...
Long course, hilly but walkable. Good hotel with spacious rooms, great breakfast and a busy bar, although, the drinks can be expensive for Spain. Easy reach with car for restaurants, etc.

Golf course and the 3 nine holes were all good. Use a local caddy. Great hotel which is being updated end of the year. Food outstanding, very friendly staff, plenty to do and only 2 mins from the beach. The whole party loved it and would go back again.

The 18th was the best hole for me, but a very challenging course, not for new starters in golf. The hotel is fantastic and the rooms are very comfortable. The all inclusive deal is very good value for money and there is a very good choice of food, from breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The golf course was great...

We had a very good trip all in all. The weather the first 2 days was awesome but it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter...still great fun though!   

The hotel room was very nice, and had just been renovated. I believe they are renovating all the rooms so the resort is on the up. The restaurants and bar were well decorated with a nice friendly atmosphere and the food although basic, was plentiful and tasty.

The golf course was great. Overall the greens, fairways and bunkers were all in great shape. The paths are starting to look slightly worn and battered but that happens with time I guess. It’s a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test of golf and very rewarding with some breathtaking views.

The members of staff at the resort were friendly and helpful overall and the pro shop assistant was even happy to book other courses for us during our stay.

YGT were top drawer. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time! We got a great deal too.

We would definitely go back to Montecastillo Resort and always via YGT.

It’s hard to find a venue that offers better value for money...

I go away with yourgolftravel.com a few times a year and it’s hard to find a venue that offers better value for money than Montecastillo. We always keep an eye out for the unlimited golf packages and if you go at the right time of year, it’s an absolute steal. And let’s face it...in Spain there really isn’t a wrong time of year as it’s always sunny!

The golf course here is good fun and in fairly good condition considering the amount of foot traffic it must get. The tee shot from the final tee is great fun, with the Wentworth-like hotel off in the distance, beckoning you to finish up and enjoy an ice cold beer!

For a no frills golf trip where all you’re really looking for is lots of golf, a comfortable hotel and peaceful surroundings, Montecastillo really takes some beating, especially when you consider the price.

Thoroughly recommended, as are yourgolftravel.com.

We never tired of playing the course...

Just got back from our Golf Holiday to Spain and the Montecastillo Resort...what a place!

The course is no Valderrama but Jack Nicklaus has laid down a really enjoyable track all the same and we never tired of playing the course, even though we were taking full advantage of the Unlimited Golf that was part of our package.

There’s a good variety of holes and the conditioning, while not 100% immaculate, was more than adequate. The greens in particular (the most important thing I’m sure most would agree) were quick and true with signs or foot traffic only appearing late in the evening.

The only drawback was that play was a little slow. However we were on holiday and are aware that this is the case on the majority of resort courses...keep calm and carry on as they say! We certainly weren’t going to let the odd wait for a green to clear hamper our enjoyment that’s for sure!

The hotel is excellent and ticks all the boxes for a group of golfers. Rooms were comfortable, food was decent and having a few beers in the evening after a long day on the course was perfectly satisfying for our group!

The best thing about the trip? The value for money we got was quite unbelievable really...budget prices for fantastic quality AND quantity does it for me anyway!

As ever YGT were excellent and we’ll be in touch soon to book our next break.

The golf course was fantastic...

All in all, we had a very good trip at Montecastillo. The weather over the first 2 days was awesome and while it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter, it was still great fun! Just wanted to write a few points about the resort golf wise and generally:

1. The hotel room was very nice and had just been renovated; perfectly adequate for a golfer’s requirements.

2. The restaurants and bar were comfortable and had a nice, friendly atmosphere. The food, although not haute cuisine, was plentiful and very tasty.

3. The golf course was fantastic. In general the greens, fairways, bunkers and tees were all in great shape. I’d say the course is a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test and very rewarding with some breathtaking views throughout.

4. The staff overall were friendly and helpful. The pro shop assistance even booked other courses for us during our stay because we felt like more, more and more golf!

6. YGT were top drawer throughout the booking process. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time and a great deal too. Good job YGT!

We’ll be back in touch for next year’s golf holiday and with Montecastillo in mind, we’d certainly recommend it to other golfers.
