D'Aro new wheels reduce Costa Brava footprint

02 April 2019

Club Golf D’Aro Mas Nou has underlined its commitment to preserving the stunning Costa Brava environment with a new fleet of eco-friendly buggies.

The spectacular course – one of seven outstanding venues in the province of Girona – enjoys a lofty position 300m above sea level with incredible views from the Gavarres mountains and down towards the resort of Platjo D’Aro and the Costa Brava coastline.

And while it is a memorable trip up the mountain to even reach the course, the journey around the challenging 18 holes just got a whole lot easier as part of an ongoing upgrade at the club with 33 brand new buggies available to hire for €48 per round.

The new Club Cars are high-quality, noiseless, and electric-powered to cover the high season demand and will reduce the carbon footprint. In addition, for those keen to walk the course and take in more of those extraordinary views, the electric trolleys have also been upgraded with new lithium batteries throughout the range. 

Ester Gil of club Golf D’Aro said: “It is always our philosophy to find the balance between customer service and reducing our impact on the environment. The new buggies will ensure our golfers will enjoy the best experience, while we look after the incredible location.”

It’s just the latest commitment from D’Aro, which was also awarded the GEO Foundation certificate for its environmental sustainability last year and is now completely irrigated with treated wastewater. It has also seen the local wildlife population flourish with several rare species of birds returning to the site in recent times.
