The inaugural Barcelona Golf Invitational presented by BOAT and Voly Group took place on 15-16 May 2024. The event welcomed esteemed yacht owners and captains to one of Spain's most prestigious golf resorts. The two-day programme offered the chance to socialise with key players in the industry through golf both on and off the course.

The venue

The event was held at the stunning Camiral Golf & Wellness in Barcelona, Spain. Home to the Spanish Open on three occasions, the resort offers two premier golf courses and world-class golf facilities in the heart of the Costa Brava.

Previously known as PGA Catalunya, Camiral Golf & Wellness is located just one hour’s drive from Barcelona and is nestled in over 500 hectares of picturesque landscaped lawns and Mediterranean forest.

With stylish, contemporary décor, the resort comprises two courses, both of which feature in Golf Digest's Top 10 Best Golf Courses in Spain - Stadium Course takes second place and Tour Course takes eighth. The 18-hole Barcelona Golf Invitational presented by BOAT and Voly Group took place on the spectacular Stadium Course, which has been home to many PGA European golf events. Having previously been part of the DP World Tour, Camiral Golf & Wellness prides itself on being a European Tour destination attracting some of the world's top golfers.
