View to the mountains from La Cala Europa Golf Course
La Cala Golf Club
La Cala de Mijas, Costa del Sol, Spain
The three fine 18 hole golf courses located at the La Cala resort, La Cala America (Par 72, formerly North) and La Cala Asia (Par 72, formerly South) and La Cala Europa (par 71, formerly New) , were all designed by the American architect Cabell B. Robinson. The Resort houses the La Cala Golf Academy with adjoining driving range and six hole, par three "Executive" course. La Cala Resort is the only resort on the Costa del Sol with three 18-hole championship courses.
The America Course starts with the three flat holes followed by a narrow and interesting Par 3, where it is recommended that you hit the ball onto the green or you will find yourself in the ravine or a bunker. If you have time walk up to the white tee box on the 16th and take in the spectacular views of the entire resort, and you can even see the coast line from this height.
The Asia Course is also an excellent course. There are water hazards on the 5th and 12th. The 11th is a picturesque par 3. The 1st, 9th, 10th, and 18th are all located beside the Clubhouse. Watch where you hit the ball on the 9th or you might end up in trouble.
On the Europa Course, the Ojen river plays a part in eight holes, cutting across three fairways. There is one main bridge that measures 45 metres and four smaller bridges over the river. The design also features four tunnels for golf carts and maintenance machinery. Designer Cabell B Robinson says, “The new course is not only dramatic but will also be easier for the average golfer. The fairways are generous from the tees and the greens are slightly larger than on the existing courses.”
