The Royal Spanish Golf Federation has confirmed that La Cala Resort, Mijas, Málaga is the biggest golf complex in Spain. La Cala has three 18-hole championship courses and a top quality 6-hole par 3 layout making it the largest golf resort in the country, which now counts over 300 courses in total. Andalucía, with 81, has more courses than any other region followed by Cataluña with 39.
The three 18-hole courses offer different challenges. The North Course is longer than the tight, challenging South Course. Campo Europa opened just a year ago but has already drawn favourable comment from the top players who regularly play and practice in La Cala
La Cala North (Par73) and La Cala South (Par71) were both designed by American Architect Cabell B. Robinson are complemented superbly by an elegant and comfortably-appointed colonial-style clubhouse and David Leadbetter Golf Academy that includes six-hole par-three "executive" course.
Robinson says, "the terrain for the La Cala course made it my most challenging course construction project".
Off the courses, the David Leadbetter Academy has covered and grass driving bays. The par 3 course offers a great opportunity for beginners and experienced players alike to practice while the three professionals can design a teaching plan specially tailored for your needs. There is also a practice green and a club-fitting service for any important equipment adjustments.
