Torremirona Golf Resort is home to a friendly, well-kept 18 holes set in some terrific surroundings, conveniently close to the city of Girona.
The course itself has more a resort feel to it than other courses in the area but is a joy to play. The greens when we played were first class and the layout is relatively flat, making it one of a few courses in Costa Brava that is walkable. The design is not overly-testing, yet attractive, offering a variety of different types of holes.
In the same way that the clubhouse bar and balcony comfort your post-round needs, the course is a comfortable challenge for almost all golfers and the lush green landscape and colourful surroundings ensure you will enjoy your day, regardless of how you play.
The front leads you casually through the resort thanks to open fairways peppered with bunkers and several water hazards. Holes 5, 6 and 7 are an attractive trio of holes that will certainly make or break your score early on. Take a moment on the par-3 5th tee to appreciate the signature hole on the front nine. The 170-yard hole is dominated by a man-made lake that hugs around the island green, demanding a confident swing on approach.
The back nine is compactly constructed on the flatter area of the resort, with holes lined up side-by-side, highlighted by the short par-3 10th and wonderful par-5 finishing hole. The 18th hole lures you back towards the clubhouse with a slight double-bend and a demanding approach shot over a small lake. Better players have a good chance to make that post-round drink taste better with a birdie here to finish.
Despite it's resort-like feel of bunkers and man-made lakes, Torremirona is super course with fantastic greens. It is not long, or overly demanding off the tee, so it is perfect for any level of golfer to enjoy.
