Just wanted to say that everyone said this trip was the best we have been on so far. Good hotel and the 3 golf courses were amazing all in their own way - Golf D'aro views were brilliant, Emporda we liked the tree lined holes and everything about the stadium course at the PGA was brilliant.

Golf Courses at Hotel Camiral 5* at PGA Catalunya Resort
Despite only opening for play in the late 1990s, PGA Golf Catalunya has established itself firmly in the exclusive list of Spain's best, aided by the award of a number of prestigious national and international events, both amateur and professional. The highlight came when the course was chosen to host two European Tour events in the space of 10 months, the Gene Sarazen World Open and the Peugeot Spanish Open.
A culmination of more than a decade of planning and design by the
European Tour, Angel Gallardo
and Neil Coles, The Stadium Course offers an exciting and testing examination of golf and,
due to the fact that each hole can be played from one of five separate tee
positions, even golfers with the most modest of handicaps can enjoy the ride.
It is from the back tees though that the Stadium Course really bares its teeth.
Measuring over 7,200 yards from the tips, the Stadium Course requires solid
hitting but it’s not simply a case of strength over strategy. Winding its way
through the foothills Pyrenees, the Stadium Course features a number of large
lakes, tree lined fairways that pinch in at specific distances and well
bunkered greens which are maintained to the highest possible standard year-round.
All of this calls for plenty of thought and strategy from the tee and with a great deal of variety throughout, the test of golf on offer here is a dynamic and infinitely enjoyable one.
After 26 previous unsuccessful attempts, Miguel Angel Jimenez finally saluted at his home open – winning a sudden-death play-off over Richard Green of Australia and Belgium’s Thomas Pieters. Jimenez let slip an early two-shot lead, the trio finishing locked at 4-under before returning to the 18th for a play-off. All three failed to find the fairway and green in regulation, but Jimenez’s up-and-down proved enough to secure his 21st European Tour title and extend his own record as the oldest winner in the Tour’s history. Asked the secret of his longevity, Jiménez said: "There is no secret. Good food, good wine, good cigars and some exercise!"
The Tour Course at PGA Catalunya may be considered as the poor relation to the epic Stadium Course but that is no slight on the test of golf it offers golfers travelling to this sunny corner of Spain.
Measuring 6,453 yards, The Tour Course is far less challenging than its illustrious sibling but it remains equally as enjoyable. Fairways are more generous but tee shots must still be played with care though as, like the Stadium Course, this charming layout is bordered by majestic woodland and with strategically placed bunkers and water hazards lurking in the most cunning of positions, approach shots must be carefully considered as well.
