PGA Catalunya Resort, home of the 2009 Spanish Open and host of this month’s European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage, will be exhibiting at the International Golf Travel Market, 16-19 November.

The acclaimed 36-hole estate, which was recently ranked as the number three golf course in Europe by Golf Monthly magazine and has consistently appeared in the top 10 of Golf World’s European Top 100 Courses, looks forward to welcoming golf tour operators to its stand, G38.

The convenient proximity of the resort and its stylish, modern hotel to Girona-Costa Brava Airport, a major hub for Ryanair and other European airlines, means that hundreds of thousands of golfers from across Europe are less than a two-hour flight away. Barcelona Airport, just a 60-minute drive away, also enables easy access.

Now, with a new modernist clubhouse and the release of its first phase of exclusive residences, with 21 golf line plots available from €350,000, PGA Catalunya Resort is the ultimate golfing destination.

Billy O’Sullivan, CEO of PGA Catalunya Resort, said: “PGA Catalunya is recognised as one of the finest golfing estates in Europe and the second highest-ranked golf course in Spain.

“We have invested heavily in the courses and the new clubhouse, and have the benefit of an hotel, which is ideal for golfers, on site. To complement our new residences, which are available as plots, finished turn key villas and self-build, we also have plans to add a sports and tennis club, plus more spa facilities. PGA Catalunya is not just one of the finest golf resorts in Europe, it is a world class resort.”

The Financial Times newspaper (September 11, 2009) highlighted Girona and the Costa Brava as one of the most desirable areas to visit in the Mediterranean and, despite the economic downturn, a property “hot spot”, citing “Barcelona, Girona, beautiful countryside, the nearby Pyrenees and the world’s top-ranked restaurant, El Bulli,” as big regional attractions.
