Golfing in the Costa Brava Region
The area of Catalonia stretching from Barcelona in the south almost to the Pyrenees and the border with France, is now firmly established as a first class golf holiday destination and every year, more and more UK golfers are experiencing the delight of a Costa Brava golf holiday.
This fascinating and culturally diverse area boasts some of the best golf courses in Europe . The majority of the golf courses lie in an area between Girona and Figueres, which is still largely unspoiled by mass tourism. Here you will find rolling green countryside and wooded hills, contrasting dramatically with the spectacular rugged coastline which has given the region its name of Costa Brava.
The scenery is stunning. Beautiful secluded coves dot the coastline and none are more beautiful than the adjoining bays of Aigua Blava, Llafranc and Calella de Pallafrugel.
The largest seaside resort in this area is Platja d'Aro and this is the ideal location for those looking for a livelier nightlife. On days when you are not playing golf, the medieval village of Pals or the famous Dali Museum in Figueres are well worth a visit.
The city of Girona with its elegant shops and famous medieval Jewish quarter is also a great place to visit.
So, if top quality golf courses, a stunning coastline, and great gastonomy are what you are looking for in a golfing holiday, then perhaps it's time you sampled the delights of a Costa Brava golf break.
