PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain has appointed Dirk Delfortrie as its new Director of Golf. 

With more than 20 years’ global golf experience, Delfortrie will oversee PGA Catalunya’s two championship golf courses and The Golf Hub – the resort’s innovative coaching, club facility and Toptracer range – focusing on creating world-class golf experiences for all. 

“PGA Catalunya is an amazing destination, you can play two of Europe’s finest golf courses and improve your skills at our state-of-the-art Golf Hub,” said the Dutchman. “I’m fortunate to have an outstanding team that embraces the same passion for introducing young people to the game of golf via our Sergio Garcia Junior Golf Academy, including Enric Lopez, our Head Professional. 

“Ultimately, it’s about creating unforgettable memories and experiences for our diverse golf audience. By combining world class courses, state-of-the-art technology and overall enjoyment, all in one of Europe’s most naturally beautiful locations. Our vision is to become the home of golf wellness.” 

Delfortrie spent eight years in California early in his career, coaching at the Butch Harmon School of Golf and playing a part in the launch of Callaway Golf’s club-fitting programme. He also worked in Portugal, Scotland and the Netherlands.
