Empordà Golf Resort (Forest course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1990

Empordà Golf Resort (Forest 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 Forest layout (originally the Blue and Yellow nines) meanders through tranquil pines, while the Links course (originally the Green and Red nines) is an open links-style design, played among threatening lakes and rolling dunes.

Many of Von Hagge's trademark features are incorporated into these well-crafted and challenging courses. The Forest layout winds through a ​​traditional Mediterranean pine forest that protects golfers on days when the wind is up. From the tee there are several tightish drives to make, while a handful of holes are also protected by water hazards, especially on the Blue-nine.

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.
