Castiello Royal Golf Club
July 17, 1958 marked a historic moment in Gijón with the inauguration of the Castiello Golf Club. Félix Cifuentes, accompanied by another 200 sports enthusiasts in Asturias, was the promoter of this pioneering project. Under the presidency of Javier Loring Guilhou, the club began its career with a rental area of approximately 160,000 square meters and a 9-hole course.
It was in 1981 when the club experienced a significant milestone by carrying out an expansion that led it to have 18 regulation holes. Over the years, new farms were added, modifications and improvements were made to various holes, and finally, in 2004, the members acquired ownership of the club as we know it today.
From those early days full of enthusiasm to the consolidation of a renowned golf club, the Castiello Golf Club has left an indelible mark on the history of Gijón. A place where the passion for golf has merged with the perseverance of its members, creating a legacy that endures in every corner of its impressive facilities.

La Llorea Municipal Golf Course
In recent years, public and municipal golf has experienced remarkable growth in Spain, breaking with the perception of being an elitist sport. Gijón stands out as a clear example and main promoter of this phenomenon. All this is due, to a large extent, to the creation, management and opening of the first municipal golf course in our country: the La Llorea Municipal Golf Course. This magnificent course is located on the land of the old Granja de Lloreda, nestled on a beautiful coastal plateau that rises to approximately 100 meters above sea level, in close proximity to National Highway 632.
The course is divided into two parts by this road: the first 9 holes in the north and the remaining 9 in the south. The design of the course, in charge of the talented Roland Favré, achieves a perfect balance between both sections.
The first 9 holes present challenges for the players who open the game, highlighting hole 4, a par 4 of 406 meters with a tiny green but surrounded by difficulties on all sides, and hole 7, an excellent par 4 of 405 meters. In the second half of the course, we find the two best par threes on the course: hole 13, with 188 meters and a wide but short green, and hole 16, another par 3 of 207 meters that is played against the wind. during most of the year. In short, this course is not excessively long, but it does offer a technical challenge that will delight golfers of all levels.
In addition to its splendid design, the La Llorea Municipal Golf Course has a wide range of services for visitors. Among them, the practice facilities stand out, including a driving range and greens, as well as a croquet field, gym, indoor room, hotel, cafeteria/restaurant, shop and a prestigious golf school.
