Double success for PGA Catalunya Resort in inaugural Travel Awards
January 19, 2012

PGA Catalunya Resort  is celebrating a double success in the inaugural  Today's Golfer  Travel Awards after it became the only destination in Spain to feature in the shortlists for both 'Best Course' and 'Best Hotel'. 

Readers of the UK's best selling golf magazine voted the venue, near Barcelona on Spain's beautiful north east coast, into the top three of both categories, underlining the European Tour Course's reputation as an oustanding all-round golf destination.

The awards also recognised the Costa Brava region as the 'Best Value Golf Destination' in Spain and third overall in Europe.

Commenting on the achievement, Julio Delgado, PGA Catalunya Resort Chief Executive, said: "Since its opening, PGA Catalunya Resort has focused on providing a world-class golf experience, raising the bar at every opportunity and setting the standards for others to follow.

"Having both our Stadium and Tour Courses, and the Melia Golf Vichy Catalan Hotel, recognised in these awards is testament to our ethos of offering the best for our customers. Praise must go to all the team at PGA Catalunya Resort for striving to deliver this at every opportunity, every day."  

PGA Catalunya Resort, one of only two World Top 100 Courses in Spain, hosted the European Tour's Qualifying School Final Stage for the fourth successive year, in December 2011. 

Both European Tour officials and players praised the new short game academy   and upgraded driving range that opened in November 2011, agreeing it is now among the best practice facilities in Europe.

The new complex includes a 2,000 square-metre putting green and chipping area, with five bunkers each containing different sand types (Augusta, St Andrews, Hawaii volcanic, PGA Catalunya Stadium Course sand bunker and Pebble Beach). 

PGA Catalunya Resort's residential development is also progressing well, with its luxury villas and semi-detached homes attracting 14 confirmed sales and eight reservations. 

Work has also started on new leisure facilities wih an anticipated summer opening for the Residents Club.
