Testing All Aspects of Your Game in Costa Brava
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.
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
• 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!
