Location

Nestling in a lovely spot between the Sierra de Mijas Natural Park and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, La Cala Golf, Hotel and Spa is home to three superb championship courses. If you are heading to the Andalusia region of Spain for a golfing holiday, you should ensure La Cala is on your list of must visit destinations.

The resort itself was opened in 2005 and is situated in the mountains, offering lovely views of the surrounding area. The courses were designed by Cabell B. Robinson and blend seamlessly into the natural terrain. The area is rich with wildlife, trees and flowers and provides a stunning backdrop for a round of golf.

The America and Asia courses were the first to become available for play, followed not long after by the Europa Course. The Europa Course has matured beautifully over the years and is now vying for the position of top course, not only at the La Cala resort but further afield in this region of Spain.

Course

Campo Europa, as the course is known locally, is perhaps the easiest of the three courses available at La Cala but this makes it a great choice for golfers of all abilities. The fairways are generous throughout and with flatter terrain than the America and Asia courses, Europa allows for some great scoring opportunities. The greens are generally quite large, especially compared to the other two courses and can look very inviting when playing approach shots.

The River Ojen stretches across the course and comes into play on several holes, cutting across three fairways. So, although the fairways may be wide and flat, this doesn’t mean you can get away with any wayward shooting off the tee, as the river will be waiting to catch you out.

Perhaps the pick of the holes on Campo Europa is the par-4, 4th hole, which features one of the narrowest fairways on the course. This is one of the holes which has the river running across the fairway, so not only must you be accurate off the tee, you must also hit long to avoid the water and scrub. In fact, the water runs along the whole left side of this hole and with scrub on the right flank, you can easily find yourself in trouble off the tee. Having successfully found the fairway, you must hit an iron shot, back over the same river to the green, which is well protected by bunkering. The 4th hole at Campo Europa is one which lives long in the memory.

Also, look out for the par-3, 14th hole, which is the longest on the course, stretching a total of 254 yards. This hole requires a long carry over the river to the green and will test both distance and accuracy off the tee.

A few words from our customers..
"1 - 1st Class Holiday"

As with previous years our week's golfing holiday in Spain went without a hitch. Accommodation at Mar Menor Residents was clean well equipped and closed to the hotel facilities. Transport, including from and to Alicante Airport, was on time and comfortable. Thanks again to Maria and Jeff for their efforts

The service from 360 Golf was excellent from first contact. From going through our various options all the way through to our trip to Vilamoura.
