Golf World (UK) - - BEST PLACES TO PLAY -

There are plenty of op­tions, de­pend­ing on your pref­er­ences. If you want to stay on-site, then PGA Catalunya, which ranks third in our Top 100 Re­sorts Con­ti­nen­tal Europe rank­ing, has two ho­tels (the five-star Ho­tel Cami­ral and the more mod­est Lavida Ho­tel) and vil­las to stay in with ex­cel­lent ameni­ties and ac­cess to a host of ac­tiv­i­ties in and around Girona. Em­porda Golf also has its own Dou­ble Tree by Hil­ton Ho­tel and Spa and is ranked 51st in our Re­sorts rank­ings.

If you pre­fer to get away from the re­sorts, then Girona is a lovely place to base your­self.

It’s well-po­si­tioned to get to all the cour­ses and other at­trac­tions and there is plenty of ac­com­mo­da­tion to choose from to suit any bud­get. We stayed in the Ho­tel Car­le­many, which is right in the city cen­tre and a short walk from the stun­ning cathe­dral. Our fi­nal night was spent in Park Ho­tel San Jorge in the quiet and au­then­tic sea­side vil­lage of Platja d’Aro, just 15 min­utes from Golf d’Aro and 30 min­utes from PGA Catalunya and Golf de Pals. It’s a stun­ning lo­ca­tion, with many of the rooms and the ter­race perched just above the Mediter­ranean Sea.

You can stay in Barcelona if you want the bright lights of bustling city life, but you will have to travel a bit fur­ther to reach the golf cour­ses.
