I thought I would take some time out of my busy beer drinking in the sun schedule here in this beautiful capital city of Madrid to tell you gorgeous lot about this gorgeous place… Well to start off there are the two equally important factors involved in why this is such a great place, that I have just mentioned. Beer. Sunshine. The perfect combination. Madrid has hot, dry summers and loads of clear blue sky days so sitting back in the sun with an ice cold Mahou or San Miguel are a must and lets face it not a must that is too taxing or even the slightest bit annoying.
I thought I would take some time, out of the kindness of my heart, to blog to you lovely people about the lovely city of Madrid. Sitting here in the blazing sunshine looking up at clear blue Madrid skies it’s not a hard task to wax lyrical about this awesome city. I mean what’s not to like? That would be a much harder blog to write. But instead of going on and on, in fear of some non-sensical blathering and off on a tangent veering, I’m going to sum up why I and many other awesome people, love Madrid. So if you’re sitting comfortably I shall begin….

Spain is nothing if not a country of sports lovers. The passion (and success) of its football clubs and national side, the fervour at another Rafa Nadal victory at Roland Garros or the flag waving hysteria whenever Alonso pops the champagne on another F1 podium. And, within all of that, Spain has had a deep and tempestuous love affair with golf. An affair which began the moment that a swarthy young Seve Ballesteros strode onto the tee in the 1970s and wielded his driver with the same romantic dash of Zorro flashing his sword.

The group wanted something slightly energetic (and healthy) after some clubbing and restaurants the night before. They visited the top museums like Thyssen and Prado and we also laid on guided tour of tantalising Toledo, only 35 mins from Madrid by luxury coach. What Pierre’s group particularly enjoyed, however, was a fantastic bicycle trip that we prepared for them.

Golf for groups in Madrid not the easiest activity to book if you are celebrating a stag or hen weekend in Madrid or even a company or friends golf outing. Madrid has many quality golf courses but even in recession-hit Spain these tend to be snooty reducts of exclusive members who may have the same set of clubs as Sergio Garcia, but look more like Sergio Ramos on the tee. Our team’s Madrid golf bore, James Bogie, lays up short and aims to get down in two from off the green (…and writes about golf in Madrid!)
