This idyllic rural retreat is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the busy coast, but just 10 minutes from the sweeping Mediterranean beaches of the Costa del Sol and only 30 minutes from Malaga Airport. The promise of sun-drenched days on the fairways and laidback al fresco evenings, relaxing under the stars is hard to resist.
But there’s so much more to discover at La Cala Golf … a gorgeous destination spa, golf academy, superb sports facilities, three superb restaurants.

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 four par 5 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 challenging par 4 could spoil your scorecard.
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.
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.
