Andorra is a tiny country by anybody’s standards but it offers some of the best skiing in the Pyrenees. Sandwiched between France and Spain, it came as a complete surprise to us that there might be a golf course located in diminutive Andorra. Rumour had it that Jose Maria Olazábal designed a course called Aravell Golf Andorra back in 1997 but it turns out that the course at Aravel Golf Club is situated some 15 kilometres from Andorra in Spain.
We thought perhaps there wasn’t enough room for a golf course in this beautiful little mountainous country. However, Jimmy contacted us and stated that there are in fact two layouts in Andorra. The Jeremy Pern-designed Golf Soldeu is a 9-hole par 33 course that’s perched at nearly 8,500 feet above sea level and additionally Vall d'Ordino Golf Club offers a 9-hole pitch and putt course alongside a floodlit driving range. If you fancy a little golf with altitude Andorra may well fit the bill.
