PGA Catalunya Resort’s stay-and-play visitor numbers increase by 30 percent according to a press release from the Spain golf course (Stadium Course, hole 11, pictured above).
PGA Catalunya Resort, near Barcelona, Spain, has expanded its property rental portfolio for golfers wishing to stay on-site at the European Tour Destination, after seeing visitor demand increase by 30 percent over the last two years.
Significantly, visitors from the Nordic countries made up the largest group of holidaymakers who preferred to rent at the Costa Brava resort in 2015, accounting for 40 percent of the total occupancy, while 25 percent were from the UK, followed closely by France with 20 percent.
A mixture of houses
Since the low-density development first took shape in 2011, the resort has enhanced its portfolio of rental properties by over 70 percent to include a larger mix of luxurious family houses, golf-fronted semi-detached villas, as well as exclusive apartments adjacent to the clubhouse, overlooking the 18th green of the critically acclaimed Stadium Course.
“By making more guest villas, townhouses and apartments available, we are now in a position to offer more golfers the convenience of luxury stay-and-play holidays, supported by PGA Catalunya Resort’s extensive award-winning facilities,” David Plana, CEO of PGA Catalunya Resort, says.
Every home type offers contemporary architectural design, high-specification interiors and large Mediterranean-style terraces which enable resident golfers to enjoy views over fairways, mature forests and the Montseny Mountains.
Good golf goes together with good food
Less than an hour’s drive from the city of Barcelona and only 20 minutes from the Michelin-starred restaurants of Girona, the 36-hole resort has consistently ranked among the 10 best European golf venues since it opened in 1999.
The golf courses and the resort attract discerning golfers, international elite amateur teams and professionals, as well as major international events, including three Spanish Opens, the 1999 Sarazen World Open and European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage events since 2008.
