PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness set to host DP World Tour event

22/02/2022

The DP World Tour has announced PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness, in Girona will host the Catalunya Championship, a new addition to the schedule in April 2022.

The Catalunya Championship will be contested from 28th April – 1st May, 2022, a week after the ISPS Handa Championship at Infinitum, in Tarragona.

Leading into the Betfred British Masters in England (5th-8th May) and the Soudal Open in Belgium (12th – 15th May), the Spanish double-header will form a four-week stretch on European soil between the season’s first two Major Championships – the Masters and the US PGA Championship.

PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness, a European Tour Destination, was the venue for the Qualifying School Final for nine consecutive years from 2008 to 2016. It has also hosted four full Tour events: the Sarazen World Open in 1999 won by Thomas Bjørn and the Open de España on three occasions, in 2000, 2009 and 2014. The latter was notable for Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez’s victory which extended his own record as the Tour’s oldest winner to 50 years and 133 days.

Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the DP World Tour, said: “We have much valued relationships with both Infinitum and PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness and we are extremely grateful to these venues for moving so quickly to help host our events in April, enabling us to continue to provide valuable playing opportunities for our members.”
