Golf de Pals
Golf de Pals, set amid a vast pine grove overlooking the white sandy beach of Pals, is the oldest course on the Costa Brava.
Designed by Fred W. Hawtree, from Britain, the course will thrill every type of golfer, from absolute beginners to proficient experts.
The first holes are quite short, with narrow fairways, gentle doglegs, extremely deep bunkers protecting the greens and venerable pine trees lining the fairways, requiring golfers to make extremely accurate shots.
From hole 12 onwards, the holes are longer and more continental in style. The fairways are broader and the greens more generous.
With five par fives, nine par fours and four par threes, it is one of the few par 73 courses in Catalonia.
During its 50-year-long history, Golf de Pals has hosted numerous domestic and European professional and amateur tournaments. Particularly worthy of mention is the fact that the PGA European Tour began at Golf de Pals when the 46th Spanish Open was held here in 1972.
Near to a varied accommodation and restaurant offer, the golf course has direct access to the La Costa Golf & Beach Resort**** & Apartaments Golf.
