King of the Links – Emporda Golf Club, Costa Brava, Spain


The Doral in Miami, Deepdale in New York, Horal CC in Japan, Seignosse in southern France… these are but a few of the approximately 250 golf courses designed by Robert von Hagge, the architect responsible for Emporda Golf Club. This stunning 36-hole complex is located in Gualta, in the Heart of the Emporda, just 30 minutes from Barcelona (Girona) airport.

At Emporda Golf Club, Von Hagge has managed to improve an already stellar setting by creating technically perfect courses that allows for a wide variety of swings and techniques.
Emporda Links is a spectacular course – designed to allow a golfer freedom and space. Six starting tees on each hole makes it enjoyable for all levels of golfer, while the extensive greens and up to five different flag positions provide much choice. The area of lakes, dunes and bunkers confers exceptional beauty on the surroundings while, at the same time, it requires the players to use their best strokes.

Emporda Forst course has a distincitvly different feel to its sister course. Incorporating the use of water and trees, this sheltered course weaves its way through tall Mediterranean pine trees which are native to the region and over strategically places lakes.
Considered to be one of the best resorts in Spain, Emporda Golf Resort is also composed by a four star hotel called DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & SPA Empordà. The Spa gives golfers the chance to indulge in treatments to enhance your wellbeing, or treat yourself to the thermal water circuit or to any of the cabin treatments.
