The province of Girona and its stunning Costa Brava Coastline played host to the Catalonia International Golf Festival 2012.
Catalonia is a region in North East Spain, which is divided into four main provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona. Often described as one of the most naturally beautiful parts of Europe, Catalonia is bordered by the Alpine peaks and ski resorts of the North, the fruit growing countryside of Aragon to the West, the Valencian municipalities to the South, and by 580km of coastline and the Mediterranean Sea to the East.
The Capital of Catalonia is Barcelona, one of the world’s leading tourist, economic and cultural centres and home to the architectural wonders of Gaudi. A giant in European Tourism, Barcelona boasts a vast array of parks, museums, monuments and beaches.
To the North lies the province of Girona and the renowned Costa Brava coastline. Here you will fine a rugged coastline of crystal waters and excellent beaches.
The province of Tarragona to the South is rich with historical splendours including medieval walls and the remains of a Roman aqueduct. It is also home to the spectacular Costa Daurada coastline and the main holiday resort of Salou.
CIGF 2012 was based in Platja d’Aro, a lively seaside town in the Costa Brava that has been enjoyed by golfing tourists for many years.
