The Mediterranean climate allows golf in Catalonia to be enjoyed the whole year.

Catalonia is also known for its authentic culinary traditions. Catalans, the citizens of Catalonia, are often recognised as very proud at their region and specifically their traditions.
It is worth mentioning that famous FC Barcelona player, local Catalan hero and avid golfer Johan Cruijff (1947- 2016) was a member at Club de Golf Montanyà, one of the best golf courses in Catalonia. Because Cruijff always played with number 14 on the back of his shirt, the 14th hole at Montanyà has been dedicated to Cruijff.
