Map of North East Spain

About

The North East Spain region covers the autonomous communities of Aragon and Catalonia. Extending to around 48,000 km², with a population of approximately 1.3 million people, Aragon comprises the three provinces of Huesca, Zaragoza and Teruel. It boasts a diverse landscape that varies from permanent glaciers in the Pyrenees mountains to lush and verdant valleys where Spain’s second longest river, the Ebro, makes it way to the Mediterranean Sea.

Catalonia, consisting of the four provinces of Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona, covers a smaller area of approximately 32,000 km² but it’s home to a far larger estimated population of 7.5 million people. Bordered by France and Andorra to the north and the Valencian community to the south, the region enjoys a wonderful 580-kilometre coastline, along which many of its inhabitants live.

The Federación Aragonesa de Golf is the ruling body for golf in Aragon, overseeing the operation of a dozen golf facilities, based mainly in and around the capital city of Zaragoza. In Catalonia, the Federación Catalana de Golf is the golfing authority that looks after the interests of golfers attached to around forty clubs located within the boundaries of its jurisdiction.

There are four 36-hole facilities in Catalonia: the Stadium and Tour courses at PGA Catalunya in Girona, the Arriba & Bosque and Piscina & Abajo nines at Real Club de Golf El Prat in Barcelona, the Links and Forest courses at Emporda Golf Resort in Gualta, and the Hills and Lakes 18-hole layouts at Lumine Golf Club in La Penida. Both Barcelona and Real Club de Golf Cerdaña have 27 holes available on their premises and there are another twenty-one 18-hole courses and eight 9-hole courses laid out in other parts of Catalonia.
