Camiral Golf & Wellness: the golfing paradise in Catalunya

Camiral Golf & Wellness has once again solidified its position as a beacon of excellence in golf by maintaining its coveted Gold Flag status at the last 59club Europe Service Excellence Awards.

The Gold Flag, a pinnacle of achievement within the 59club Europe industry benchmark, is bestowed upon properties demonstrating the highest service excellence. The exceptional teams at Camiral Golf & Wellness take immense pride in their tenacious dedication and hard work, which have earned the resort this prestigious honour again. It is one of the most chosen destinations among the best Spain golf breaks.

Behind Camiral Golf & Wellness story

The story begins with the ancient Camí Ral traversing the resort—a Roman road cradled amidst the sea and mountains, weaving through pine forests, lakes, and sun-dappled clearings, connecting Spain to France. This path has been integral to the resort’s history, bridging past, present, and future. 

The resort has recently adopted the appellation Camiral Golf and Wellness to encapsulate the myriad of transformative changes over the past two decades. With its acclaimed Stadium Course and Tour Course, pristine natural surroundings, revamped wellness program, organic vineyards, and gastronomic offerings, Camiral Golf & Wellness is more intertwined than ever with the region. 

Where to stay

Nestled adjacent to the PGA Catalunya Golf Course, the Camiral Hotel stands as a testament to style and luxury. It offers an outdoor oasis with an expansive pool. Each generously appointed room boasts complimentary Wi-Fi, a flat-screen satellite TV, and views of the idyllic countryside. Adorned in warm, natural hues, the rooms feature air conditioning, a minibar, and modern bathrooms exuding elegance.

Exquisite à la carte cuisine awaits at Camiral Hotel’s airy restaurant, while guests can unwind at the piano bar or pub. In the summer, beverages can be enjoyed on the terrace. The spa beckons with a sauna, hot tub, hammam, and various rejuvenating treatments. Just a stone’s throw away lies the spa town of Caldes de Malavella, renowned for its natural mineral waters. The vibrant city of Girona and its airport, as well as the best Costa Brava beaches, are within easy reach.

In addition to the sumptuous amenities offered at Camiral Golf & Wellness, guests can stay at LAVIDA Hotel, an innovative establishment boasting 50 rooms nestled within the breathtaking surroundings of Camiral Golf & Wellness—a leisure paradise. Furthermore, various options are available for groups of all sizes seeking luxury accommodation. The open-plan villas, suitable for leisure-oriented groups, exude spaciousness and grandeur. At the same time, the apartments on the edge of the Stadium Course offer endless panoramic views, catering to every preference and ensuring an unforgettable stay.

Two fantastic golf courses

With two world-class golf courses ranked among Europe’s finest, Camiral Golf & Wellness promises an extraordinary golfing experience. The Stadium Course boasts breathtaking beauty and intelligent design. Having hosted numerous Open de España tournaments and graced by the DP World Tour, it captivates and challenges professionals and golf enthusiasts alike. The Tour Course offers a more open and shorter layout than the Stadium Course, providing a more straightforward golfing experience that ensures a challenge for every player level.

Camiral Golf Sustainability Efforts

Camiral Golf Sustainability Efforts

Camiral Golf Sustainability Efforts
Formerly PGA Catalunya Resort, Camiral Golf & Wellness is now committed to golf sustainability, especially for your golf holiday in Costa Brava, and has begun a thorough three-year strategy to execute new projects. In addition to improving the resort experience for guests, these measures will cut the use of treated irrigation water by 35%.

The new measures include changing the grass on both golf courses, reducing irrigation areas, and exploring innovative irrigation system options. They build on previous sustainability efforts at the Stadium Course and Hotel Camiral, which included establishing a photovoltaic panel park on the hotel roof for green energy.

Camiral Golf & Wellness, widely regarded as the best golf resort in Spain and a stop on the European Tour, places its emphasis on environmentally conscious water management. CEO David Plana praised the company’s dedication, which began with the opening of the first golf course in 1999 with the use of 100% recycled water for irrigation.

This three-year project, which the CEO estimates will drastically reduce water consumption by at least 35%, demonstrates the resort’s dedication to responsible golf course management. This endeavour further demonstrates their dedication to improving their client experience, as pointed out by David Plana.

Earlier this year, Camiral Golf & Wellness was recognised on the ‘Green 100’ list, which showcases the best environmentally conscious golf courses in Europe, by Golf World magazine.

Tall Fescue was planted on the resort’s greens in 2022, and in 2023, the native drought- and heat-resistant Bermuda Celebration will be used on the tees and in the surrounding areas.

In July 2023, the first phase was completed, according to David Bataller, agronomist director at Camiral Golf & Wellness. This phase features a change in grass variety for tees and surroundings, inspired by the Augustas National in the United States. The grass varieties that were introduced, such as Tall Fescue, Bermuda Celebration, Paspalum Platinum, and Bent Grass, are not only of high quality, but they are also resistant to pests and illnesses, and these varieties were used on the fairways at Augustas.

As part of its dedication to sustainability and environmental consciousness, the Camiral resort works tirelessly to keep its championship courses in immaculate shape. The environmental responsibility and long-term viability of the golf course will be maintained through the use of advanced technology, sustainable methods, and collaboration with in-house biologists. Further evidence of the resort’s commitment to environmental preservation is its 2020 IAGTO Sustainability Award, GEO Certified accreditation, and recognition from the STRI Group.

The third edition of the European Tour Destinations Senior Classic will be held from July 12 to 14 at PGA Catalunya Resort in recognition of the Stadium Course on its twentieth anniversary. The resort of Girona has hosted three editions of the Spanish Open and was the setting for the Final Phase of the Classification School for the European Tour for nine consecutive years until 2016, showing its quality at the highest level.

“This tournament has been growing in strength in the two years since its launch,” says Iain McInally, director of European Tour Destinations. “I must thank the Staysure Tour for making it possible to organize this tournament and show some of our highlights. Linna Golf Club and Lighthouse Golf & Spa Resort, venues in 2017 and 2018, respectively, were both wonderful hosts and we are now delighted to make use of the incredible facilities of PGA Catalunya Resort this year.”

“We look forward to organizing the third edition of the European Tour Destinations Senior Classic and welcoming so many legends of the game to a wonderful golf festival. The tournament will be part of a series of special events planned in 2019 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of PGA Catalunya Resort and the exciting journey in which we embark for the future, “adds David Plana, CEO of PGA Catalunya Resort.”

“After two wonderful editions of the European Tour Senior Destinations Classic, we are delighted to visit PGA Catalunya Resort in 2019. The Stadium Course is one of the best golf courses in the world, in my opinion and that of many others. It is a true test of golf, but also one to enjoy it. To celebrate a Staysure Tour event is fantastic for everyone involved, “says David MacLaren, head of the Staysure Tour. “The tournament is between the Swiss Seniors Open and the WINSTONgolf Senior Open, which makes it a busy period for our players, but they will enjoy fighting for the points of the Order of Merit.”
