The Emporda Links golf course is among some of the most popular golf courses in the Costa Brava. With fast greens, a stunning landscape and an unforgettable challenge, it comes as no surprise that the Emporda Links welcomes many golfers back to its greens year after year. For a fantastic round of golf on a truly fantastic golf course, the Emporda Links is an unbeatable choice.
Regardless of their skillset or handicap, the Emporda Links is sure to offer a challenging round of golf for all players. The Emporda Links is known for its fast and wide fairways, defined with mounding and deep rough, but little in the way of trees. The architects of this golf course have perfectly combined the landscape’s natural features and the fantastic golf course that stands today. The course weaves its way between large dunes, lakes and strategically placed bunkers.
The layout at the Emporda Links is the complete contrast to the neighbouring treelined Forest golf course. Although very different in design and style, the Links Course at Emporda Golf Club is still a great test of golf and will require precise shot making if you are hoping to score well. Kept in immaculate condition throughout the year and with several tricky holes, the Emporda Links is certainly a must play on your next golf holiday to the Costa Brava.

The Emporda used to offer four loops of nine, however recently the Green and Red loops were divided from the other two in order to create the Emporda Links golf course. The golf course does not feature much greenery or forestry with wide and open fairways, typical of a British links golf course design. Golfers here must not be lured into a false sense of security with the seemingly generous fairways; the Emporda Links is known for its fast and narrow greens. However, unlike a typical links-style golf course, the Emporda Links features many large water hazards to capture any wayward shots.
A signature hole at the Emporda Links golf course includes the final 18th hole which plays to a par of 5 and measures out to 505 yards from the back white tees. At this last hole, golfers will find every aspect of their game challenged as they must play with the perfect balance of accuracy and length. They must manoeuvre their shot through two huge lakes with a slight dog leg to the left in order to reach the well-bunkered green.
