Course of the Month - Pazo Da Touza Pitch and Putt, Galicia, Spain.
The 18-hole Pitch and Putt course and the rest of the Pazo da Touza facilities are situated in the central area of Galicia (northwest Spain), overlooked by the landmark that gives the course its name.
The topography of the land on which the Pitch and Putt layout sits makes Pazo da Touza unusual amongst courses. It's a very attractive looking course but is considered of maximum difficulty. Each hole is a challenge for all. The holes reward good shots and a generous helping of success will accrue to the brave player.
The holes are designed to highlight the characteristics of the landscape, with 120 and 45 metres the maximum and minimum distance respectively. Highlights include the 3 hole finish to the first nine. 7, 8 and 9 are collectively known as "the Mousetrap". The distances are short, between 65 and 45 metres, but how players perform at these holes can be vital to their overall total.
The area in which the course is located is renowned for its fine wines. This wine region and popular spas complement prestigious tourism in the locality, which has a multitude of top-class hotels and guesthouses. Founded in 2006, the course welcomes visitors every single day. The course is located 10 minutes from Carballino, 20 minutes from Ourense. Vigo is 45 minutes away, leaving from the A-52.
