Golf Holidays Costa del Sol
The three fine 18 hole golf courses located at the La Cala resort, La Cala America (Par 73, formerly North) and La Cala Asia (Par 71, formerly South) and La Cala Europa (par 71, formerly New) , were all designed by the American architect Cabell B. Robinson. The Resort houses the prestigious David Leadbetter Golf Academy with adjoining driving range and six hole, par three “Executive” course. With the opening of the new Europa course, the FBD owned La Cala Resort is the only resort on the Costa del Sol with three 18-hole championship courses, making it the perfect place for your Golf Holidays Costa del Sol.
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. Watch out for the 5th, a difficult uphill index 1 hole, where a good drive is a necessity. If you have time during your Golf Holidays Costa del Sol, 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.”
La Cala is recognised by The Royal Federation of Spanish Golf as the biggest golf resort in Spain – a real treat for your Golf Holidays Costa del Sol
