Golf fans heading to Catalonia for the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix this weekend will be spoilt for choice when they’re not cheering on home favourite Fernando Alonso.
The race of the 2011 series always proves a popular choice with visitors from abroad thanks to the thrills and spills on the challenging 4.6km circuit mixed with fantastic weather conditions and authentic Catalan culture and cuisine for which the region is renowned.
With just two short practice rounds scheduled for Friday and an hour qualifying session on Saturday, there will be plenty of time to sample the fine golf courses on the Costa Brava, including the World Top 100-ranked PGA Golf Catalunya Resort, Club Golf d’Aro Mas Nou, British-designed Club de Golf Costa Brava, Golf Girona,
Torremirona Golf Club and Club de Golf Peralada.
Jaume Marín, director of marketing at Costa Brava Pirineu de Girona, said: “We warmly invite visitors to Costa Brava to enjoy a golfing break twinned with a trip to the Grand Prix and experience a unique taste of Catalonia’s culture, along with our acclaimed cuisine and history.”
