Situated on the outskirts of Zaragoza, “La Peñaza” Golf Club has an 18-hole course. In comparison with the arid dry natural landscape which surrounds the course the club appears as a true oasis of greenery.
Its carefully looked after vegetation, which has been growing now for 30 years, provides shelter for various species of animal and is delightful to look at. The course has a par of 72 and is moderately difficult. In 1999 a major reform of the greens and foregreens was undertaken and the result is a highly technical course which rewards the accurate player more than the big hitter. When the north wind, which is typical in the region and known as the "cierzo", is blowing, the course becomes extremely difficult for players of all kinds. The 9th hole is worth a special mention; its length and the prevailing wind make it the most difficult of the course. It has water tanks on one side, a bunker to the left and a group of pine trees on the right. The fairway is uphill so you will need to hit a clean drive. The 12th hole is also worthy of mention, a par-3 of 180 m (gentlemen), with a very raised tee. This hole becomes one of the most dangerous of the course on windy days, because the “cierzo” comes at you head on and it is extremely difficult to reach the green on the first shot. One of the most beautiful holes is the 10th, with a raised tee which dominates the entire hole, and a dogleg to the right. Opened in 1973, the La Peñaza Golf Club has, in addition to its 18 holes, other facilities such as swimming pools, tennis, paddle tennis, and “pelota” courts, and covers an area of 100 hectares.
