The Emporda Golf course offers a total of 36 holes, divided into two separate 18-hole courses: Links and Forest. The course was designed by Robert von Hagge, who chose to integrate a links-style course with two large lakes, dunes and rolling bunkers into a classic Mediterranean landscape replete with dense, manicured pine stands and spacious fairways. To this end, he was able to take full advantage of the natural beauty of the setting itself: stunning El Baix Emporda in the heart of the Costa Brava region. With the inauguration of the final 9 holes, the course came to offer a total of two separate 18-hole courses. The first, called LINKS, spans dunes and lakes in a style reminiscent of the world-famous greens of Scotland. The second, FOREST, is more Mediterranean in style and winds invitingly through pine trees and lakes. In the late 1990s, EmpordÃ Golf was named one of the 10 best courses in Spain. It was moreover ranked 13th for design in all of continental Europe by Peugeot Golf Guide 1996. EG was made the permanent headquarters for the PGA Pre-Qualifying School II European Tour and, since 2002-2003, has hosted the PGA Qualifying School European Tour Final.
