Directly after the visit to Germany, the delegation travelled to the northeast of Spain to evaluate the Costa Brava, Barcelona candidacy. The two-day trip consisted of a tour of the iconic cities of Barcelona and Girona, as well as the proposed future host venue, PGA Catalunya Resort, where the delegation met with owner Denis O’Brien.
