Golf in Spain – La Cala
La Cala Golf Resort is widely recognised as the home of the best golf courses in Costa Del Sol, with three 18-hole championship courses nearby. Renowned course designer Cabell Robinson, whose golf courses in Malaga and Morocco are some of the best in Spain, designed all three, and it makes for some excellent golf.
Boasting one of the best golf clubs in the Costa Del Sol, La Cala boasts the Campo America, Campo Asia and Campo Europa courses at the site, as well as the six hole par three course layout for beginners and La Cala’s famed golf academy.
Campo America, Campo Asia and Campo Europa Courses
Campo America is a hilly par 72 golf course in Costa Del Sol in Mijas. Stretching a little over 6,000 metres, the course offers five par five holes and is known for its wide fairways and few bunkers. This is a perfect course for big drives, but watch out for the water hazards on the 9th and 16th. The Campo America offers stunning sea views for anybody who takes it on.
If you are looking for a tough round on a course that can test even the most experienced golfer, you may want to choose the Campo Asia, a par 72 course standing at a little under 6,000 metres. The oldest course out of the Costa Del Sol trio, the Campo Asia is a short course aimed at the more technical player.
Finally, the Campo Europa is the longer of the three by a few metres, but is a par 71 course. Ideal for the less experienced golfer, the Campo Europa cuts across the River Ojen and has several bridges and tunnels thanks to the impressive scenery.
If your skills need brushing up further, the par three course comprises six holes and is one of the best golf practice facilities in the Costa Del Sol. Perfect for pre-golf practice or for those less confident about taking on the three championship courses, it offers a superb golfing arena for the less experienced player.
La Cala is also the perfect place to get away and learn to play or boost your skills at the renowned La Cala Golf Academy, which features former PGA coaches and offers some of the best golfing tips to be found in Andalusia.
