PGA Golf de Catalunya opened in 1999 and has quickly gained an international reputation. It has been regularly ranked as one of the Top 10 European venues by "Golf World" magazine and has hosted the Spanish Open and Sarazen World Open. It regularly hosts the European Tour Qualifying School Stage II. The venue comprises two outstanding 18-hole courses (including the recently opened second course) and the luxurious 4* Mela Golf Vichy Catalan hotel. Both courses were designed by the experienced partnership of Neil Coles and Angel Gallardo and offer a world-class challenge for golfers of all abilities. Fairways snake through dense parkland of pine, cork and mature oak trees. Numerous vantage points on both courses offer stunning views of the surrounding Montseny and Pyrenees mountains. Both Girona and Barcelona are within easy reach of what has become known as one of Europe's very finest golf resorts. This Member Venue is also host to the Golf University, an innovative training programme which uses the game of golf to assist senior executives to perfect their management skills.
