Golf promotion

A golf championship promotes the Costa Brava golf tourism offer among around 1,000 players and fans from twelve British golf courses.

To promote the golf tourism offer of the Girona destination on the important British market, the Costa Brava Golf Marketing Club organised A Taste of Golf in Costa Brava Championship 2017.

The golf championship started in August and finished on 24 October with the grand finale, which took place at the Old Thorns Golf Club in Hampshire. During the two months the competition lasted, twelve tournaments were held in twelve golf clubs in the United Kingdom and in which 1,024 players participated. The champion and the runner-up of the final, who are non-professional players, won a six-day and a three-day stay on the Costa Brava, respectively, including green fees, accommodation and transport.

This new activity contributed to promoting golf tourism on the Costa Brava and creating awareness about the brand among British fans and players.
