The 2019 Mutuactivos Open de España starts on Thursday. The event is back at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, 20 after it was last staged there, with a revamped tournament that has undergone a multitude of changes and takes place from 3 to 6 October. Before the players tee it up, we bring you all the details of the competition you need to know.
Club de Campo Villa de Madrid has hosted nine editions of the Open de España and a handful of Madrid Opens. Its black course, a Javier Arana design, will be sure to win over the fans. Even more so if they make the trip to the venue, which will open its gates every day of the tournament at 8am.
As well as the areas dedicated to golf, leisure activities will also play a crucial role at the venue: restaurant areas, VIP hospitality, the commercial zone… Below is a map of Club de Campo so that you don’t get lost when you come to visit us!
Both under 16s and members of the Real Federación Española de Golf (RFEG) pay 5 euros on Thursday and Friday and 10 on Saturday and Sunday. A four day ticket will cost them 24 euros, or 18 if then only come on the weekend. A general ticket costs 10 euros on Thursday and Friday and 20 on Saturday and Sunday, with season tickets at 48 euros and weekend tickets for 36. Get your tickets to the 2019 Open de España here.
How to get to the tournament
The only public access will be via exit 8 of the A6 (Hipódromo de La Zarzuela). You will only be granted access with your car if you have purchased a parking space; 10 euros for one day, 32 if you would like to buy a space for the whole tournament and 18 for the weekend.
We would recommend that you come to the Club de Campo via public transport. Buses 160 (Aravaca) and 161 (Aravaca Sur) will leave you close by. There will also be shuttles from the Hipódromo (if you park there) and from Moncloa.

Fans on the course
Please remember that, while you are following the various groups in the tournament, you must respect the players’ concentration at all times. That is, you must respect the ‘silence’ signs when shown by the marshals, only walk in the designated areas and, above all, KEEP MOBILES ON SILENT.
During the week, in the village area, there will be various music performances, recreational activities and a number of food and drinks stands so that you can enjoy a complete experience. Keep your eyes on our website and social media, where we’ll be publishing the points of interest.
