Where2Golf says: 

Empordà Golf Resort (Links course): Previously comprising 27-holes, the addition of a further nine in 2004 gave Empordà the ability to create two 18-hole championship layouts - the Links and Forest courses. The Links course (originally the Green and Red nines) is an open links-style design, played among threatening lakes and rolling dunes. The Forest layout (originally the Blue and Yellow nines) meanders through tranquil pines, also with water hazards in attendance, especially on the Blue-nine.

Many of Von Hagge's trademark features are incorporated into these well-crafted and challenging courses. Dune-like mounding is the hallmark of Emporda's Links layout, with copious bunkering guarding the large and fast greens. A couple of par-5s are well over 500 metres and definitely not reachable in two by amateur golfers.

All four of Emporda's nine-hole loops are well-maintained and offer pleasant views onto surrounding hills, with the Pyrenees in the distance. A relatively new onsite Hotel & Spa makes this an ideal Catalonian Stay&Play venue.

The Emporda Resort, with its two championship golf courses and onsite hotel, sits in a flattish area of arable farmland, just below the River Ter. Although its headwaters are in the Pyrenees, the River Ter is also fed by smaller rivers and streams in the middle and lower plains.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
