Girona and Costa Brava offer everything you need for a golf holiday getaway, that's why it's not surprising that it's one of the most popular golf destinations in Europe. In Naturaki we will be revealing some of the hidden gems of the region presenting different golf courses nearby.
The first club we have featured is Peralada Golf, which it's located in the heart of Empordà.
Peralada Golf Club
It is located only 10 minutes from the sea and the French border, Peralada Golf offers an unbeatable emplacement.
Unique experiences can be enjoyed while playing in one of the best courses in Costa Brava with the Mediterranean landscape and the stunning Pyrenees on the background
as well as the nearby medieval town of Peralada.
Peralada Golf had been the host venue to several remarkable tournaments such as the Catalonia Open, the training of Pre Qualifying School (PQII) or Senior PGA Qualifying School.
The charming 18hole course, designed by golf architect Jordi Soler, has a length of 6071 meters and it's played as par 71. It represents a good challenge to the more advanced players as well as being suitable to beginners. The layout of the course is slightly hilly and some wellplaced water hazards convert the course into a great test of golf.
As soon as the prevailing North wind, known in the zone as ?Tramontana?, starts blowing, the course becomes very tough and players should not be concentrating too much on the beautiful lush gardens around.
One of the most recognizable awards that make you realize about the quality of the course is the environmental management certificate from the EMAS scheme of the EU for ecomanagement and auditing. It has also been awarded as ?Emerging Golf Destination of 2000? with the other Costa BravaGirona Golf Association golf courses by the prestigious and wellknown IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour Operators).
Beside the 18hole course, Peralada Golf Club possesses a 9hole Pitch & Putt with double tees and a total length of 1.315 meters. The landscape is wonderful and the short course has been perfectly integrated in the nature of the Catalan landscape. This course is ideal for beginners with a higher handicap, as the terrain is flat and not difficult.
