Spanish Open Travel

To travel to the 2009 Spanish Open golf tournament, you will need to get to the city of Madrid in Spain. Madrid is most easily accessible by air and train. The 2009 Spanish Open (also known as Open de España) is being held at the PGA Golf de Catalunya golf club in Girona.

The PGA Golf de Catalunya golf club in Girona is a beautiful, challenging golf course designed by Spanish golfer Angel Gallardo and Neil Coles. Located in the north eastern area of Catalonia, the city boasts ancient architectural attractions as well as modern day facilities.

The PGA Golf de Catalunya golf club is only 1 hour from Barcelona and about 10 minutes away from the airport, which means 2009 Spanish Open travel for spectators and fans is both easy and convenient.


Just north of Barcelona, Girona is the capital city of the province also named Girona or Gerona. It is a medium sized city that offers the best of both romanesque beauty and a modern close-knit community close to major transport routes including the airport. Art lovers will be drawn to the museums and galleries, while the Rambla de la Libertat is a great place for the whole family with street markets and great entertainment.

The 2009 Spanish Open held towards the end of April each year usually means warm temperatures and blue skies – perfect for golfing!

Another reason that makes Spanish Open travel so appealing is that Girona is child-friendly. There are various excursions for children – the perfect solution for the odd day not spent at the Open de España.
