Enjoy golf on the Costa Brava
Girona and the Costa Brava's golf courses are a must for any golf lover due to their unbeatable features and modern facilities, as well as their location in the heart of the Mediterranean.
Here are the best golf courses on the Costa Brava, idyllic spots where you can practice your swing and take your game to the highest level.
There is no more privileged location than that of Golf de Pals. Just 10 minutes from the historic centre of the picturesque village of Pals, this golf course is situated on the beachfront, giving you the opportunity to feel the sea breeze while trying to make an ace. With a total of 18 holes, it was designed by F.W. Hawtree and is considered to be the most beautiful golf course in the world. Hawtree and is considered the oldest on the Costa Brava.
With 6,070 square metres of course, 18 holes with 4 tees for each hole and a fairytale natural setting, Golf Peralada, located in the village that gives it its name, is perfect for both official competitions and amateur and amateur matches with players of all levels.
Situated between mountains and sea, Golf Costa Brava is not only a sporting but also a social venue. Hamilton Stutt, founding member of the British Association of Golf Course Architects (together with the aforementioned F.W. Hawtree and C.K. Cotton), oversaw designing and building this enclave with 27 holes and 2 courses that skirt its autochthonous nature formed by majestic cork oaks and pines hundreds of years old.
Just a stone's throw from the Pyrenees and the Gulf of Roses, the TorreMirona Golf Club, inaugurated in 1992 and with 18 holes, offers a dream space to practice this sport with all its comforts. Not to mention its incredible views of the Pyrenean peaks. In addition, the facilities have paddle, tennis, and football courts, as well as a range of activities such as quad biking and horse riding.
In the heart of the Gavarres Natural Park, 10 minutes by car from Platja d'Aro, is Golf D'Aro - Mas Nou, another of the oldest courses on the Costa Brava. It was designed in 1992 by Ramón Espinosa, a renowned architect in the world of golf, having served as president of the European Society of Golf Architects. His projects bear his stamp, which is based firstly on thinking of the players and secondly on sustainability. So much so that Golf d'Aro is the sixth golf course to obtain Geo Certification in Spain.
Considered one of the best golf courses in Europe, PGA Catalunya Golf has hosted international competitions such as the Spanish Open on up to 3 different occasions or is the venue for European Tour tournaments on a recurring basis. There are two different courses, the Stadium Course, classified as the best golf course in Spain, and the Tour Course, which presents incredible challenges, but is less demanding than the previous one. A course with all the facilities and services of the highest luxury so that you can enjoy your games like nowhere else.
Finally, we finish this list with Empordà Golf, located 7 minutes by car from Pals, which was modernised in 2020 to offer two unique courses. The first, Empordà Links, is inspired by British and Irish coastal courses with 18 holes featuring dunes, bunkers, and lakes. The second, Empordà Forest, with a Mediterranean design featuring the typical pine forest of the area and the same number of holes. It is also worth mentioning that Empordà Golf was chosen as one of the top 10 best courses in Spain according to the "Peugeot" guide.
