(Girona, Spain) – PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness has been recognized as one of Europe’s finest golf and wellness experiences, affirmed by the latest edition of the game’s leading ranking list.
In the Golf World Top 100 Resorts of Continental Europe 2022*, PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness places fourth, continuing its reign as the No. 1 ranked golf resort in Spain, and solidifying its standing as one of Continental Europe’s premier destinations.
Chris Bertram, Editor of the Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe, said: “PGA Catalunya is not just one of Europe's finest resorts but one of the best in the world. A sign of its all-round quality is the fact that it features in the top 10 in Europe in three categories: 'courses', 'accommodation' and 'best for families'.
“That demonstrates how it can satisfy anything from groups of avid golfers to couples, families and non-golfers. The competition for the top five has never been fiercer and any resort worthy of that ranking is very special indeed.”
In addition to the recently upgraded Stadium Course, a long-established Spanish no.1 layout* and a Top-25 course in Europe deemed “a fair test for any level of golfer with a balance of risk and reward” by Chris Bertram in the latest ranking, and its sister design, the Tour course, PGA Catalunya also boasts two accommodation options: the 5* Hotel Camiral, a member of The Leading Hotels of The World, offering chic interiors and luxury accommodation, as well as a state-of-the-art Wellness Centre, and LAVIDA Hotel, aimed at the active traveller, both in close proximity to the resort’s other amenities which promote physical and emotional wellbeing.
Ongoing enhancements at the European Tour Destinations venue, which form part of a long-term €53 million development programme, include seven new wellness-focused Camiral Suites, designed to offer guests a unique retreat experience with access to large private living spaces equipped with personal fitness accessories, healthy in-room nutrition and a direct link to the Wellness Centre.
“Maintaining a high standing among Europe’s premier golf resorts is an achievement in itself,” said David Plana, PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness CEO. “We are so pleased to see the numerous enhancements and developments made over the last few years be this well received – and continue to build our journey to become one of the leading golf and wellness resorts in the world.
“We are confident the continued investment in the golf courses, improvement to the customer experience and development of resort amenities will further establish PGA Catalunya as a must-visit luxury resort for not just golfers, but all types of visitors looking to experience the wonders of the Costa Brava.”
PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness has established its position as one of Europe’s premier luxury lifestyle destinations, with a 300-hectare forested estate, sport and leisure facilities, range of dining choices, nature trails and more, all located within a 20-minute drive from neighbouring Girona. The resort makes the perfect location for golfers, sports enthusiasts, remote workers, retreat seekers and their families visiting this unique region in the north-east of Spain.
