The Costa Brava Spain

An hours drive north of Barcelona, discover the northern part of the Costa Brava, an area of Catalonia which has so far managed to resist high density development prevalent in most other Spanish resorts.

It has a marvellously scraggy coastline with hidden coves and beaches, charming hotels, delightful medieval villages set in unspoilt countryside, probably the best food in Spain and some excellent golf. The highest ranked is the PGA de Catalunya, a superb challenge up hill and down dale, around lakes and through wooded countryside. A slightly more hospitable second course has recently opened.

Two of the oldest courses well worth playing are, Pals which winds through majestic pines and the charming parkland and Costa Brava with its old stone clubhouse. Newer courses include Peralada, near the medieval village of the same name and perhaps our favourite, Emporda, with 36 holes through forest and sand dunes. Golf d’Aro atop a mountain overlooking the Mediterranean coastline should not be missed either.

For those staying in Barcelona, a visit to the new 36 holes designed by Greg Norman which make up the new Amarillo & Rosa courses of El Pratt golf club, which is now located to the north of the city, provide a serious challenge.

While you are in the area, besides visiting Barcelona, which must surely be one of Europe’s most exciting and innovative cities, take time to visit the local university city of Girona; Straddled across the River Onyar, the city has a wealth of monuments, good shopping and excellent tapas bars and restaurants. Also visit the Dalinian Triangle dedicated to local artist Salvador Dali, made up of the Dali Museum in Figueros, the house Museum in Cadaques and Pubol Castle.

Catalonia, is also well known for the excellence of its cuisine and locally produced wines to be found in many a restaurant, be it El Bulli, located just outside Roses with its three Michelin rosettes, rated by some as the best restaurant in the world or one of the more modest establishments along the coast and inland towns and villages.
