PGA Catalunya Resort Retains ‘No. 1 in Spain’ Status

(PGA Catalunya Resort, Barcelona) - PGA Catalunya Resort, near Barcelona, has celebrated the start of the 2016 season in style by securing a trio of important accolades that reconfirm its status as home to Spain’s #1 course and one of the best in Europe.

The Stadium Course was voted ‘Best Course’ in Spain by readers of influential UK golf magazine, Today’s Golfer, as part of its annual Travel Awards, and maintained its place at the top of the latest Spanish ranking – a position it has held since 2012.

The European Tour Destination’s championship layout also retained its number 3 ranking in’s 2016-2017 Continental European listing and was featured among the Spanish courses in Golf Digest’s recently announced ‘Best Golf Courses in 206 Countries’ classification, underlining the venue’s standing in European golf.

“It is no surprise PGA Catalunya Resort emerged a handsome – and deserved – winner of Spain’s Best Course category in the latest Today’s Golfer Travel Awards,” commented Today’s Golfer courses editor, Kevin Brown.

“The venue continues to go from strength to strength and, in one of the most keenly-contested sections, the classy Costa Brava resort reigns supreme as the King of Spain.”

These latest accolades follow the venue’s second consecutive International Property Award for ‘Best Golf Development Europe’, which was judged by a high-calibre jury of 70 international property and architecture experts.

David Plana, Chief Executive Officer of PGA Catalunya Resort, added: “2016 is an important year for PGA Catalunya Resort, especially with more new initiatives in the pipeline, but our objective still remains the same, to offer every visitor a truly world class, memorable experience.

“The Today’s Golfer travel accolade is one we are particularly proud of, as it is based entirely on consumer opinion, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who voted for us.”
