The sharp scent of damp grass, the first grip of the club, the thrill of the challenge…
It’s no secret that La Cala is one of the finest golf resorts in Andalucía. Three superb championship courses, each presenting its own unique challenges, slot seamlessly into a natural undulating backdrop of stunningly beautiful trees and flowers, rich with birds and wildlife.
We’re passionate about our golfing pedigree and it shows. Designed by the renowned Cabell Robinson, each 18-hole course has been created to ensure a testing, yet truly exhilarating experience.
6009 meters, par 72 with five par 5s.
Formerly the North Course, Campo America is enhanced by spectacular views to the Sierra de Ojén and Mediterranean Sea.
It’s wide, linked fairways and relatively few bunkers make this a slightly easier driving course, though the hilly topography requires a lot of carry across steep brush-covered side slopes. while the small raised greens demands more precise club selection to hit the mark.
There are water hazards on the 9th and 16th.
5925 metres, par 72.
Formerly the South Course, the spectacular Campo Asia has plenty of challenging holes, guaranteeing a testing round of golf which puts a premium on the approach shot.
The oldest of our three courses and the one most respected by the professionals, it is narrow and short, with five par holes demanding skill and strategy.
Look out for the 10th with its classic design, and the 5th where the aim of your drive is especially critical. The 18th requires full concentration. Remember not to over-club off the tee or this lengthy par 5 could spoil your scorecard.
6014 metres, par 71.
A dramatic course but easier for the average golfer, with generous fairways, flatter terrain and slightly larger greens than Campo America and Asia. Notable for one main bridge and four smaller bridges across the River Ojén, which features in eight holes, cutting across three fairways. There are four tunnels for golf carts.
Water hazards guard the 3rd and 14th greens. The 14th is at the maximum limit of what is allowed for a par 3 at 233 metres. The par 5 11th is the longest hole at 524 metres.
Par 3 course
Located beside the La Cala Golf Academy, this six hole course is one of the finest short game practice facilities on the Costa del Sol. This is an intricate and testing layout, with high quality greens and penalising terrain.
The fourth is the longest hole at 145 metres. The second is 135 metres over a gulley and only one hole, the fifth, is less than 100 metres. The course is ideal for those wishing to practice their short game or for beginners who may not feel ready for the three La Cala championship courses. It is also a great place to practice after a lesson in the academy.
