‘Brava’ in Spanish or Catalan translates roughly – which is quite appropriate – as ‘rugged’ or ‘wild’. But the only wilderness you’ll find on the four courses I’m playing on this particular tour of Spain’s northeast Catalan region is the rough when you missed the fairways. Even the downpour I experienced on the front nine of PGA Catalunya’s Stadium course was of the warm kind and not, say, the North East of England type.
And with the tranquil environment that greets you once you arrive at the tracks I played, with the backdrop of the Pyrenees to add to the majestic feel of this region of Spain, I’m sure you will agree it’s a wonderful place to play golf – and enjoy mouth-watering food accompanied by some beautiful wines. Throw in the sun-kissed fairways, a rich culture and people who know how to enjoy life, and Costa Brava becomes a perfect golfing destination.
