The Club de Golf d’Aro, located between Playa de Aro and Santa Cristina in Girona, was designed by Ramón Espinosa at the end of the 1980s. An 18 hole par 72 course and over 6,200 meters, the construction began in 1988 and it was a great challenge for engineering.
The hardness of the terrain forced the use of dynamite to model the streets, which added a lot of work to the ambitious project that was intended to be carried out. After such work, and to integrate the field into the natural environment, all kinds of trees (cork oaks, pines, willows, cypresses …) were planted and two artificial lakes were built for the non-relocation of the native fauna.
On April 23, 1990, the Golf d’Aro Club was inaugurated with the Open Martini PGA celebration and only two years later it received the “Best European golf course” award. Since then, it is considered one of the best fields in Spain thanks to the attention paid to maintenance and the service provided to the client.
