PGA Catalunya Resort wins for third successive year

10/01/2014 by .

The Stadium Course at PGA Catalunya Resort, near Barcelona, has been named Spain’s #1 golf course for the third successive year in new 2014-2015 rankings published by influential website, www.Top100GolfCourses.co.uk.

The two-time Spanish Open venue, and European Tour Destination, has also been ranked #3 in the Continental European list and has risen six places to #92 in the website’s World Top 100 ratings, one of only two Spanish courses featured this year.

Andy Newmarch commented: “Based on many factors, we think we have got it right again – the Stadium Course’s variation, elevation changes and inspiring tee-shots, coupled with an exacting test of both long and short games made the decision relatively simple in the end. The Stadium Course is a must play and you will not be disappointed.”

This latest accolade follows PGA Catalunya Resort’s ranking in Golf World magazine, which placed the 6,705-metre course at #5 in its new Continental European classification, one of the oldest and most authoritative in European golf – up three places from its previous listing – which also made it the highest ranked course in Spain.

Julio Delgado, Chief Executive Officer of PGA Catalunya Resort, added: “These latest accolades underline the growing reputation of PGA Catalunya Resort on the global golf stage. However, we will not rest on our laurels – we plan further investments in the future to safeguard our position as one of golf’s must-experience destinations.”

The phrase capital city and golf doesn’t automatically spring to mind as an appealing combination does it. I mean, previous loving and harmonious duets might be capital city and nightlife, or perhaps rolling countryside and country club, or even city and history.  But on a recent visit to Palma, Mallorca, I was introduced to the concept of Urban Golf and a new combination was born for Golf in Mallorca.
