This is the only game that you play
alone against the ball.
We are in Terramar Golf Club in Sitges.
It is one of the most beautiful golf clubs in Barcelona,
located in the Mediterranean.
It's a beautiful place, and the course,
it's for all kind of golfers.
It's good weather all year round.
I'm a 22-year-old professional golfer,
and I've been golfing here since I was five years old.
I love Club de Golf Terramar,
because it's such a pleasant golf course,
and it's right by the ocean.
Camilla was champion of Spain two years consecutive.
It's very very impressive.
Your mother said you must be crazy
to make her a member of this club.
So young, she can't play golf yet.
I said, don't worry, she will play very good
in a few years.
Camilla is kind of a star in the club
because since she was young she was playing golf,
and she became a professional golfer.
It means that if you work hard
and train and focus on your goals,
it's possible to achieve the dream.
We always came here and just like
spend the afternoon here, spend the morning here
with the family or with friends.
And that was lots of fun for sure.
It's where I started and where I grew up.
From very very young, I started playing
with some plastic clubs, and then eventually playing
with other members of my age,
little kids running around here on the golf course
and just practicing and playing.
If it wasn't for this course, I might never
have tried playing golf, who knows.
Try to imagine the shot.
The thing is, you know exactly where you wanna send
the ball and how you want to do it.
After that, you never know.
You never know.
When members and players come here, you spend all day.
People is coming not for business.
They're coming for relax.
And it's fantastic to see some people
that when you see them in Barcelona,
they're all the week working, and when they come here,
after 18 holes, looking for a beer,
you know, it's another person.
And this is when the staff is with them.
This place is a rest place.
Toni's been here forever,
ever since I was born really,
and I came around and I was here.
I'm working here from 30 years ago.
I start here like a caddie in 1979.
At here the people, all the caddies, we were a family too.
I know families here from four generations.
You know them when they have babies,
and you see the babies growing up,
and there is that moment when the children
play better than the parents.
It's an honor that the little girls or boys
in the club see me as a role model,
and they want to practice.
I think it's a motivation for them.
My dad was a person like that for me.
When I was a kid, I wanted to play like him.
I'm very proud of how far you've come.
[Roland] Camilla is the face of Terramar
when she goes around the world
because she always will bring the brand
of Terramar everywhere.
Even though there's a lot of nice golf courses
around the world, this one is like very special to me.
And it's always gonna be special to me.
It's like home, just like home for me.
