The Torremirona golf course is among some of the best golf courses in Northern Spain, nestled in the heart of the Costa Brava, close to the historic Figueres. Golfers can enjoy stunning views of the neighbouring Pyrenees mountains throughout the scenic landscape. Boasting a stern test of golf, a stunning landscape and immaculately kept greens, it comes as no surprise that the Torremirona golf course has attracted golfers back year after year.
Part of a luxury residential and hotel complex, the Torremirona is similar in style to a Florida resort course, with wide fairways, big greens, with plenty of water and sand. Players can expect to be kept on their toes throughout the golf course with new challenges around every corner. Golfers must not be lured into a false sense of security with the relatively flat terrain as there are subtle contours and undulations that are sure to trip them up. However, because the golf course is relatively flat, many golfers find it walkable and a buggy is not always necessary.
The Torremirona golf course has been intricately carved into the original features of the natural landscape to maintain many of its original characteristics. Many trees have been planted and when mature, the golf course will not be quite so lenient to wayward shots. The golf course is popular with mid and high handicappers, with its immaculately kept greens, easily walked landscape and mainly forgiving to errant shots.

Players can enjoy a fantastically varied round of golf with the front and back nine holes completely differing in characteristics and difficulty. The front nine holes are located around the residential area of the resort and the challenge here is mainly characterised with water hazards strategically placed throughout. Two signature holes in the front nine include the par three 5th hole, featuring a peninsular green, and the par five 6th hole in which golfers must manoeuvre their approach shot around a small water hazard lining the front of the green. Most players find the front nine more demanding as the greens feature more undulations and narrow fairways lined with trees.
Alternatively, the back nine holes are less open with the hazards more compact. Similarly to the front nine, there are several water hazards to challenge players further. Despite the back nine appearing more compact, it is actually less challenging than the front nine. The greens are more flat, giving players a chance to truly admire the snow-capped neighbouring Pyrenees Mountains.
