The highest golf course in Europe
Golf Soldeu, situated in a matchless setting at an altitude of 2,250 metres, has been designed so that its technical characteristics are adapted to players at all levels. This 9-hole course, with a par 33, is integrated harmoniously into its natural surroundings, making full use of geographic conditions and natural elements. This is the greenest attraction in the whole domain. Launching its fourth consecutive season, Golf Soldeu announces the following new developments.
Green, swing, handicap, bogey, eagle, etc. these are just some of the basic, indispensable concepts we need to understand in order to enjoy the game of golf. The best introduction to the sport is by taking one of our courses: "First Sensations", "Golf Discovery" or "Swing Evolution"*. The school's teachers are all qualified and experienced golf instructors. For the fourth consecutive season, El Pla d’Espiolets is the venue of choice for players seeking expert guidance as they start out in this wonderful sport. For this reason, Golf Soldeu is extending the services of the Golf Academy even more this season, with new professional instructors from leading clubs in Spain and France who have also competed in events on the international circuit.

9 holes, par 33
Golf Soldeu is a golf course whose technical features make it suitable for players of all levels. Thanks to this special design, both professionals and interested amateurs will find plenty of attractions here. The obstacles include bunkers and water hazards to make this course a real challenge.
Hole 1 par 4
Short hole with double hazard in the initial stroke. Missing the first shot can mean sending the ball into the water, while achieving a good stroke can make the ball reach one of the two bunkers located on the right side of the fairway.
Hole 2 par 3
At first sight it looks easy as it starts with a marked downward slope but the grass bunker located at the centre of the fairway increases the difficulty. The second stroke is the most important as it will probably be played on the slope, with the risk of ending up in one of the two bunkers behind.
Hole 3 par 4
This is a short hole with the added difficulty that it must be played on an upward slope. The green is well protected by 4 bunkers and a long slope on the right side of the fairway. A birdie or a double bogey is possible if you try to reach the green in the first stroke.
Hole 4 par 4
This is a long upward hole. The difficulty lies in orientating oneself correctly on the tee-off and play in the draw of preference. The fairway bunker and the trees that act as obstacles make this hole even more difficult. A good par if you play with determination.
Hole 5 par 3
With a green protected by the water on the right and 2 bunkers on the left, this hole is of average difficulty and higher than the previous.
Hole 6 par 4
The bunkers are substituted in this hole by the bases of the mechanical ski facilities, thereby making free drops possible. The attack on the green, narrow and flanked by water, presents great difficulty.
Hole 7 par 3
This is a special hole as it runs close to an area of ecological interest. From the tee you can see an immense mountain panorama. A green worked to defend the hole par as it does not facilitate the player’s putting.
Hole 8 par 5
With 500 metres, it is the star hole of the course, with a hazard on the first stroke as there is water on the right for lovers of slice. The second stroke appears easier although if you are an expert you can complicate it by attacking the green which is closely defended by 4 bunkers. For the third stroke you must adjust the distance as the green is wide but shallow.
Hole 9 par 3
The final stroke is not easy. It can decide the competition and, moreover, the players can be seen from the terrace of the club house. This hole has majestic views.
