Testing All Aspects of Your Game in Costa Brava

 Costa Brava home to world-class courses !






When our clients come to us to help them organise bespoke golf breaks, Spain is a natural choice for many. There’s so much going for it in terms of weather, accessibility and the huge variety of world-class courses and luxury resorts from which to choose.

Of course there are the popular options like Costa del Sol and Andalusia in the north-eastern region of the country. However Costa Brava offers a slightly different experience for those looking to explore the rugged scenery of the lesser-known Catalan coast.

Tee Off on the Catalan Coast
We’re not suggesting this region is a hidden gem for golfers because, in fact, the superb quality of the courses means that it’s a bit of favourite destination for golf breaks. Spain’s diverse landscape shows off its best here, with fabulous beaches, mountainous panoramas and wooded pine forests. However it does have a bit of a slower pace than some of the southern regions.

In terms of where you can get a game in, there are plenty of choices no matter whether you’re PGA ready or just graduating from the local Pitch and Putt.


Golf d’Aro
The two-course 18-hole Golf d’Aro was designed by Ramon Espinosa and is one of the most established courses in Costa Brava. Its lovely natural setting, 300 metres above sea level, sees you teeing off at the foot of Les Gavarres Mountains. The spectacular scenery might set you up for a triple bogey if you let it distract you!

This par 72 course is great for players of all levels and, for novices, the 9-hole Pitch and Putt offers some really nice bunker challenges for an interesting round. Other features include the following:

•    Driving range
•    Restaurant on site
•    School
•    Putting green

Platja de Pals (pictured above)
The 18-hole, par 73 Platja de Pals was the very first course in Costa Brava, built way back in 1966. Its design pays homage to its gorgeous pine forested setting and the course appears in perfect harmony with nature – as it was intended. Since it played host to the 1972 Spanish Open, it’s been the site of numerous championships, including multiple qualifying finals for the PGA. Don’t be misled into thinking that because it’s mostly unchallenging flat terrain; there are numerous demanding holes and multiple greenside bunkers to keep even the pros on their toes!


PGA Catalunya
If you want the prestige of playing on Spain’s number one golf course, be our guest! You’ll just have to work out how good you think you really are, as you’ll have the choice of facing up to the slightly milder Tour Course or really putting yourself out there with the ultimate challenge of the Stadium Course. The former is shorter, although still very strategic, with lots of water hazards, while the latter is definitely a place for the pros. But fortune favours the brave and just imagine the stories about that albatross you got on the PGA Catalunya Stadium…

If you’re looking for Europe’s best golf breaks, Spain is top of the tee. We’re passionate about providing our clients with the most memorable and fulfilling golfing getaway experiences, so get in touch with us and we’ll arrange a hole in one holiday to Spain, France, Portugal or another country of your choosing.
