A spectacular golf course, literally carved through the pine-clad limestone hills, that you will want to play again and again. The hills really aren't that severe as some gentle dynamiting has flattened the golfer's route between the crests, creating some stunning looking Tee-shots and approaches that are sure to get your golfing juices flowing!Lumine - Lakes Architect: G. Norman (2008). 18 holes: 6,317m: par 71.
Across the broad, flat marshes of the Sèquia Major wetlands, Mr. Norman has crafted a course designed for tournament play with long testing holes between deep inviting lakes. At Lumine Lakes, fortune favours the patient: the bold may well encounter a watery grave. A sleek, glass Clubhouse completes the picture where you can lunch well (and perhaps contemplate a roller-coaster ride at the theme-park next door!).Bonmont Architect: R. Trent Jones Jnr. (1999). 18 holes: 6,379m: par 72.
Beautiful Mountain they call it and it's fairly obvious why as this inland course sits at the foot of the towering Serra di Llaberia mountains that loom over the back nine. The course is on intricate design with dry gullys seemingly everywhere, especially running across infront of Greens - no place for the running game! Bonmont's slightly elevated setting engenders a cool, clear atmosphere and a refreshing feel in the Summer heat. Delightful modern Clubhouse well worth lingering in.Costa Dorada Architect: J. Gancedo (1982). 18 holes: 6,251m: par 72.
The original golf course of the Costa Dorada (or Costa Daurada in the Catalan tongue) that has a few quirks, yet provides a good game of (matchplay) golf around a lovely old Clubhouse. The land is heavily wooded and quite hilly to which Snr. Gancedo has added a few bunkers and a water hazard or two without overcomplicating things or overstressing the golfer! Good fun, enjoyable by all.Panoramica Architect: B. Langer (2008). 18 holes: 6,251m: par 72.
Back in the golden days of 2008, when money was seemingly no object, a vast quantity of €uros was thrown at this remote residential golf development. Mr. Langer was enticed over from Germany and allowed to indulge himself amongst the orange and olive farmers of the region to create a superb golf course, with the full gamut of golfing delights, that spreads over a huge expanse of prime fertile land. All around are new houses, a small hotel and holiday flats (some are even finished!): Panoramicá is a big development. A long drive from Port Cambrils or Tarragona, but a richly rewarding course: perhaps best played as a stop-off en-route to Valencia or combined with a visit to the fascinating delta of the Ebro river?
Reus Aiguesverds Architect: Unknown (1985). 18 holes: 5,885m: par 71.
A short course aimed at providing cheap golf for the local community rather than attracting overseas golfers looking for 'the game of their life'. A couple of water features provide two interesting holes (and absorb most of the maintenance budget!) those aside, Reus Aigüesverds is cheap 'n' cheerful golfing amongst the houses.

"Thanks for a wonderful trip to Port Cambrils. Having travelled with Golf Par Excellence twenty times now it was one of our best ever! The guys raved about the courses - especially Bonmont. Where now for next year!?!"
