Welcome to the Costa Brava!
The Costa Brava is situated between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees in the Province of Girona in Spain. It has an average temperature of 16 degrees with 2500 hours of sunshine a year and a moderate rainfall, mainly in winter months. Golf in the Costa Brava is second to none and it has received the distinction of being one of the world’s best emerging golf destinations. A very popular choice for the British and European golfer due to it’s easy access from Barcelona and Girona airports and the avalibility of low cost air fairs to this popular region of Spain.
From the foothills of the Pyrenees to the opal waters of the Mediterranean in the North-eastern corner of Catalonia, Spain, the Costa Brava has been a favourite destination for sun-loving holidaymakers for decades. And, with year-round sunshine, amazing beach resorts and epic nightlife to add to a bevvy of stunning courses to engage all handicaps, it’s another amazing location to base yourself when booking a golf holiday to Spain or across Europe.
Here are some of our favourite courses in the region.
Inspired by the iconic layout of PGA Sawgrass in Florida (Home of the Players Championship), The Stadium course at Catalunya has been consistently ranked one of Spain’s top courses since it opened in 1998. Designed for championships (it’s hosted numerous tour events) but a suitable challenge for all, this is a course that begs to be included on any golf holiday itinerary to the Costa Brava or Barcelona, just 45 minutes away.
Another course that makes the most of the stunning Spanish scenery, Torremirona/a> is a delight for golfers visiting the area.
It’s a resort-style course, ideal for golfing holidays, offering lush, generous fairways, fine rolling greens and enough water to keep you concentrating. Benefitting from the epic backdrop of the Pyrenees in the distance and just a short drive from Girona airport and the Costa Brava holiday spots. A classy, fun favourite for golfers across Catalonia.
A classic course of the region and a long-time favourite for golfers visiting Costa Brava. Golf De Pals is perhaps best known for its fairways, narrow and lined by visibly arresting umbrella pines. With strategically placed bunkers requiring careful shot selection and a layout that offers plenty of risk-reward options, this is a fun, deceptively challenging course.
It’s also delightfully located along the sumptuous white sands of the Mediterranean coast and easily accessible from all parts of the Costa Brava.
Located in Girona, right in the heart of the Costa Brava,Club De Golf is another fabulous resort from which to base a golfing holiday in the region.
Alongside the beautifully maintained fairways and slick greens, the course is also a picturesque example of Costa Brava’s stunning landscapes. From the lush and vibrant foliage, spectacular views and a serene atmosphere across the course and clubhouse.
A welcoming club, an engaging course and an array of dining and off-course entertainment in the vicinity. What more could you ask for from a Spanish golf break?
A simply stunning location to play your golf. Golf Montanyá sits within the Montseny natural park, offering amazing natural vegetation and jaw-dropping views out to the Pyrenees.
Designed by legendary architect Dave Thomas, it takes inspiration from other Thomas courses, such as the Brabazon at the Belfry and the iconic Spanish course, La Manga.
A parkland layout, the course is set up ideally for golf tourists – not too long but tight enough to warrant a genuine test of your skills and judgement. And always immaculately presented. Montanyá may not come with the same reputation as some of other courses in the region or the country, but it rarely fails to deliver an enjoyable day’s golf for visitors to the Costa Brava.
Opened in 1954 and redesigned as a 45-hole complex in the 1990s by Greg Norman, El Prat is a former host of the Spanish Open.
As a golf resort, it offers a mix of course options among the 45-holes on offer, ranging from moderate, social golf to the exacting challenge of the Open track which can play long (more than 6,670m) from the back tees.
Another classic mix of Costa Brava’s natural landscape and championship style, stadium layouts, the course is perfectly located for those using Barcelona as a base, just a short drive out of the city.
