Sus calles estan bordeadas por frondosas arboledas y vegetacion mediterranea y resultan ideales para los golfistas mas exigentes.Lagos e imponentes pinos caracterizan el paisaje del Tour Course, que sirve de telon de fondo para jugadores de todos los niveles. El entorno de PGA Catalunya Resort resulta sorprendente, con una combinacion de atractivos imposible de encontrar en ningun otro destino del Mediterraneo. Salpicado de numerosos rincones de interes turistico y cultural, idilicas playas en la Costa Brava y excelentes pistas de esqui en los Pirineos. Sin olvidar los atractivos de la historica ciudad de Girona y los encantos de la cosmopolita Barcelona, a menos de una hora de trayecto en coche. La Costa Brava, con algunas de las mejores playas del Mediterraneo, se encuentra a 20 minutos y a tan solo 10 minutos esta la historica ciudad de Girona. El nucleo medieval de esta capital de provincia rebosa encanto mediterraneo y cuenta con una oferta gastronomica y comercial de primera clase.

Came here with an organised group, played the Stadium course twice and the PGA once. The Stadium course is spectacular and deserves its reputation as the best course in Spain (World's Top 100 rankings). The PGA course is somewhat easier to play, and for the higher handicap golfer more enjoyable and less expensive on lost balls!

The hotel, practice facilities etc are all well up to scratch.

However, check-out for some reason took forever. 30 minutes when you have a plane to catch, and there is nothing to discuss, is forever. Golfers have no patience: express check-out 30 seconds. Why not?

We played the stadium course in january. We booked our tee time at noon and had the whole course for ourselfs, perfect (no rush). I would recommend to have enough time before your tee time to go to the practise area. They have a perfect shortgame facility with bunkers filled with Sand from different famous courses. The one with Augusta Sand is special!!

Just returned from our second visit in three years to this golf resort. We are a group of 10 golfers. The golf courses are first class as are the course staff. It's no surprise that this complex has the No. 1 ranked course in Spain and hosts the European Tour school every year. The practice areas are excellent and the setup of the golf resort is perfect.

That's the good news. Unfortunately this resort think that the quality of their courses gives them the right to treat their visitors with some contempt in regards to buggy hire, range balls and food. They treated us unfairly on a number of counts in regard to charging us for food & drinks that were never ordered. They also like applying a cover charge in the clubhouse under the cloak of bread, which on many occasions was never served but always charged.

As a group of 10 golfers we had booked the obligatory golf buggies as part of our 6 day golfing package. As a group of 10 we assumed we could play as two 3-balls and one 4-ball thereby requiring 6 golf buggies to cover the three tee times. However, management decided we were only entitled to play as two 4-balls and a 2-ball and only allowed us 5 buggies. We pleaded our case but were asked to pay for the extra buggy on each day of play.

We will not be retuning soon - your loss Catalunya, Spain - we spent over €20,000 in your local economy but are going elsewhere next year.

Challening but nicely kept and enjoyable. Good service at the caddy desk etc. Defenately worth the visit if you play golf. Green-fee about the same as in any other golf course in the area. Rental clubs were also very nice (Taylormade, season 2013 models)

Lovely courses, beautifully laid out. But tough - need to keep to the fairways (don't you always!) and avoid very long and dense rough in front of the teeing areas - where you have no chance of finding your ball if you mess up. Challenging use of water around the greens! Some greens show that many users have no regard for repairing pitch marks. Nice bistrot area at clib house and helpful course staff.
Melia Vichy hotel very decent - a touch functional, but good restaurant and acceptable bar. Pleasant staff.
