Golf Holidays in Salou on the Costa Dorada

Very few golfers know anything about golf on the Costa Dorada. In fact few people actually know where the Costa Dorada is? The Costa Dorada is a stretch of coastline running down the Mediterranean just south of Barcelona . In the heart of the Costa Dorada is Salou, the famous town where large tour operators send hoards of holidaymakers for fun, sun, sangria and xxx!

What few golfers know is just outside Salou are two good golf courses and one excellent one. All less then a twenty minute drive. This possibly makes Salou the best nightlife golf holiday hotspots in Spain .

You have four courses, in which to play, in the area. The furthest is Panoramica (a 45min drive from Salou) a really beautiful course. Designed by Bernhard langer this course is always well manicured, where olive tress and lakes adorn the course. The course is of championship calibre and a must play while staying in Salou. Then you have Aiguesverds and Costa Dorada golf courses. Both members courses, very pleasant to play and always in golf condition. Lastly you have Bonmont and great course! Designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones Jnr. Sweeping ravines, USGA sculpted greens with mountain backdrops, make for a very enjoyable and challenging golf course. It is amazing that so few UK holiday makers have played this course. The real beauty is not just the quality and easy location of the golf courses but the very low cost of the green fees and noticeable lack of golfers playing. Compared now to the high cost of playing golf in the south of Spain , one wonders why the Costa Dorada has remained completely unknown?

After a days golf in normally idyllic weather – where the climate seldom drops below 15° even in winter, a large group of golfers can descend upon Salou where an abundance of shops, bars, clubs, disco’s, restaurants are available. Salou is not a town where there is nothing to do after dark!

For those who like a little more culture while on holiday, one can visit the historical towns of Reus and Tarragona where modernistic & roman architecture can be seen. Reus is the birth place of the Antoni Gaudi the inspired architect the famous Famillia Sagrada cathedral in Barcelona . It has over 1,000 shops in the town centre, where you can shop until you drop.

Lastly those golfers who love wine will appreciate the locally produced Priorat wine. Regarded by many wine connoisseurs as possibly the finest red wine in Spain – and that includes Rioja. Priorat is available in most restaurants in the Costa Dorada and it is simply delicious, but watch out, it’s a powerful red about 14%, too many glasses could result in missing your tee time next day!!

In summary if you are looking for a new golf destination, good courses, low green fees, uncrowned, good weather, lively nightlife then you should consider Salou in the Costa Dorada.
