What makes a golf course, the BEST golf course? What factors are important for you? Course condition, thoughtful design and making good use of the surroundings tip the balance for us. And a prime example, living up to its reputation as the best is PGA Catalunya Resort.
Top 100 Ranking
The Costa Brava is known as a tremendous golfing region. A slightly cooler climate than the rest of the country means golf course condition is always at its best. The Stadium Course at PGA Catalunya has been ranked among the best since its opening in 1998. Designed by the European Tour, you’ll find undulations, dog legs and well bunkered greens. The variation between each hole and pure condition is what has kept this gem as a must-play. It’s currently ranked 4th in all of Spain, 10th in Europe by Top 100 Courses.
PGA Catalunya hosted the Spanish Open
The Stadium Course was deemed so great in such a short period after opening, that it hosted the 2000 Spanish Open. Since then, the course has hosted the tournament twice more, in 2009 and 2014.

The Tour Course at PGA Catalunya
With all the limelight on the Stadium Course, it can be easy to overlook or underestimate PGA Catalunya’s second course: The Tour Course. However, this is absolutely not one to turn down. Measuring 6453 yards from the back tees, it is over 1000 yards shorter than the Stadium, but still packs a punch.
The Tour Course is slightly more friendly for higher handicappers, but strategically placed bunkers and clever water hazards can catch even the more experienced golfer.
