Verdict

Overall, there is no question PGA Catalunya is one of the finest venues I’ve played in Europe. It’s a true test of golf that requires every club in the bag to be savoured and the need to come armed with every shot in your locker. 

Platja de Pals and Golf Girona are certainly close rivals with working the ball key to unlocking good scores. The exquisite Par-3 P&P Gualta is a lot of fun - even for the hardened golfer - and is a must for the whole family looking for a friendly knock.
