The Costa Brava region in Spain is packed with things to do. Some people go there for the beaches, while others are looking for a luxury villa rental in Spain to explore the many golf courses in the area. We take a look at some of the most beautiful golf courses on the Costa Brava.
PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona
Definitely one of the most beautiful golf courses on the Costa Brava, if not in the whole of Spain. The course lies on a naturally hilly site featuring a lake and lots of trees, and is a dream for beginners. That said, it is popular among amateurs and professionals alike. So much so, in fact, that pro teams come from all over the world to train here. Some spectacular holes will appeal to golf enthusiasts who like a challenge.

Club Golf d’Aro – Mas Nou in Platja d’Aro
The Mas Nou golf course is located in the Gavarres mountain range. Situated 300 m above sea level, it has a serious advantage over other courses: a stunning panoramic view of the sea and the mountains. It’s the perfect bolthole. And it’s not just the view from this Costa Brava golf course that make it worth the visit – the fairway itself boasts two artificial lakes and a host of pine and olive trees.

Platja de Pals Golf Course in Pals
One of the most beautiful golf courses on the Costa Brava can be found tucked away in a pine grove. It’s also the oldest course in the region. Ranked among the 100 best golf courses in Western Europe, it hosts big competitions which testify to the calibre of both its fairway and its facilities.

Empordà Golf Resort in Gualta
A combination of lakes, dunes, bunkers, and pine trees make the Forest course a great experience at this golf course on the Costa Brava. The tree-free Links course is most certainly the best place for beginners to start… although you’ll still come across an obstacle or two.

Costa Brava Golf Club in Santa Cristina d’Aro
Santa Cristina d’Aro is one of the most beautiful golf courses on the Costa Brava and can be found 4 km inland from the beach. Its 27 holes and widely diverse spaces put it in a league of its own. Combining wide fairways and narrow corridors, pine trees and open spaces, highly technical spots and others much less so, it’s sure to keep you on your toes.
