Golf Club d'Aro: Perched up high in the lofty and elegant Mas Nou estate, course designer Ramon Espinosa has demonstrated what can be achieved from a "difficult" site, when the golf course rather than real estate gets priority.
This undulating and incredibly scenic layout has been very well designed to ensure you have sufficient room off the tee, without being terrified by narrow, impossible to hit fairways ... as is the case on several other Spanish designs. Inevitably things do get a wee bit tight, but only occasionally. The closing three holes in particular will examine whether the preceding holes have straightened-up your game.
In terms of spectacular scenery and natural surroundings the score is a near perfect 10 out of 10. The sea views, tree-covered mountains and stunning panorama down the El Ridaura valley are breathtaking - almost every hole is a picture that blends well with this wonderful environment.
With such quality scenery beyond the course, ,one almost takes for granted the excellent greens and top-quality bunkering. Definitely one of the must play courses on the Costa Brava - on a day without too much wind if possible!
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
Some of the steep sided ravines on the course perimeter are defined by electrified fencing (don't touch). We are not sure if the purpose of this fencing is to keep local animals out, or stop golfers attempting impossible climbs to recover lost balls. A discount green fee scheme (Golf Pass G6) is operated by the following clubs in and around Girona : PGA de Catalunya, D'Aro, Costa Brava, Girona, Peralada, Torremirona.
