8 Reasons to Stay & Play at Emporda Golf

By: Andy Waple | Mon 21 Mar 2022

There is more to golf in Spain than the tried and tested Costa del Sol. In the north east of the country, the Costa Brava offers great golf in stunning surroundings including the highly rated Emporda Golf Resort.

Nestled in the stunning landscapes of the Emporda region, Hotel Terraverda at Emporda Golf is regarded as one of Spain’s top venues and features some of the best golfing experiences in Costa Brava.

Below we round up eight reasons why you should consider this for your next golf break.

The Golf Courses

Firstly, there are two fantastic well-maintained courses, both of which are used by the Challenge Tour, which offer contrasting styles. One is links-like and the other runs through avenues of trees - hence the names, The Links and The Forest.

The Hotel

The on-site Hotel Terraverda has been completely revamped to create an elegant, contemporary retreat right next to the first tee boxes. Well-appointed bedrooms and public spaces create a relaxed atmosphere. A perfect venue in the ideal location.

The Restaurants

There is a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes. After a meet up in the well-stocked bar you can head to on-site Entrecamps which specialises in chargrilled cuts and fish, all with a typical Catalan flavour. For a contrast the hotel’s Terrafonda offers “flexi-vegan” dishes which demonstrates the fantastic variety and flavours that can be extracted from plant based ingredients.

The Challenge

The Forest course features one of the scariest short par fours in Spain. The 6th hole is enough to fill most golfers with dread as they stand on the tee. If you don’t like water, you may need to stock up on balls before heading out.

Easy to Reach

With easy transport links, the beauty of golf on the Costa Brava is that it's only a short flight from the UK and most of continental Europe. Regular cheap flights to Girona or Barcelona make Emporda in easy range for a short golfing break.

Wider Attractions

For cultural interest the medieval towns of Pals and Peratallada are both good for sightseeing, restaurants, and a spot of culture. While the nearby Mas Geli winery offers tasting and tapas.

Other Courses Nearby

The venue is also within striking distance of other top class courses in the region including PGA Catalunya Resort and Real Club de Golf El Prat.


It’s easy to book a trip using Golfbreaks, a leader in global golf travel. Offers include 3 nights, 2 rounds from £349.

For those looking for more than golf you can also take advantage of the many other activities available such as watersports, cycling or even an airplane ride!
