About the golf course

La Cala Resort is one of the largest and most exclusive resorts in southern Europe with three 18 hole golf courses.

The natural features of the La Cala terrain have been used to challenging effect by the renowned golf course architect, Cabell B. Robinson. The three courses are carefully maintained to ensure they are playable all year round.

The North Course (now renamed Campo America) is perhaps more difficult than the shorter South (Campo Asia) but both demand great accuracy from the tee and careful club selection.

Meanwhile, the third golf course, Campo Europa, uses the River Ojen in making the course distinctive. The layout allows for plenty of water hazards. All three offer different challenges to all levels of golfers and demand good course management in addition to a wide variety of shots.

We played the Europa course. By far the best course we played. Some amazing holes with the fairways and greens in top condition. The rough can be a bit challenging but it will encourage the average golfer to hit a bit straighter. The club house is amazing with great views of the course. I would 100% recommend this course and I am sure the other two courses are just as good.

In first week of August we played: La Cala Europa&America, Marbella golf club, Calanova, Los Arqueros, Santa Marija, Cabopino, Alcaidesa (Hcp 13,18,22,25). Here are the reviews: La Cala Europa&America: 5, Marbella golf club 5+, Calanova: fairways 4, forgreen 3-, greens 3 (hairy) , Los Arqueros: 4,3 (good greens), Santa Marija: fairways 4, greens 3- (soft,soft, soft, hairy, nothing to compare to other courses, couldn’t putt). Even shorter course now. I was skeptic, but the stuff said we can play with buggies at 17 p.m. because we will easily come around. We had lots of traffic on the way but still make it on time. Because we finished after 9 p.m. the stuff said directly that this was the last time we did something like that…. WTF. Will not play it again but not because of this misunderstanding. A place for older or higher Hcp with nice club house), Cabopino: if La Cala is 5 I give it 4,3 like Los Arqueros (on La Cala they did really good job), Alcaidesa: If Cabopino and Los Arqueros are 4,3 it should be 4 ( a bit dry but good greens), but then Calanova and specialy Santa Marija should desert 2/3. Don’t get me wrong but La Cala and Marbella golf club were perfect, usually Los Argueros and Cabopino shuld recive 5 for such condition. I was surprised on golf courses that they war in such good condition in summer. BTW we play a lot on “costa” in all seasons. Oh, accept La Cala and Marbella they will have to work on sends some more!!!

Played América in March 2013: fairways and semi-rough in bad condition with large areas of very little grass. Management of the club quite unwilling to accept the problem claiming that it was due to periods of heavy rain (despite the fact that other courses in the area did not have the same problem). La Cala has a high reputation but in March 2013 is was definitely not worth the relatively high green fee, and the management was quite arrogant about the problem.

We played the three courses. Asia is the shortest and accuracy is at a premium. America is longer and very challenging, again demanding accuracy. Europa is wider with bigger greens. A real delight for all golfers. Many of the holes require good course management. The views are spectacular so don't forget to bring a camera. Nice clubhouse with friendly staff and reasonable prices. I will be going back.
