Ranked as 25th among the best golf courses in Southern Spain and 52nd in the top 100 golf courses in Southern Spain, La Cala America is one of the three golf courses situated in La Cala Resort and Golf Complex situated in the mystique valley of Mijas, at a 30-minutes drive from the Malaga Airport.
La Cala America is an 18-hole and 72 par golf course that could be rendered as the oldest golf course of the La Cala Resort. Although it was designed and constructed in tandem with its contemporary La Cala Asia, it took a little while more for La Cala America to be launched for the players and visitors.
Initially named as the North Course, La Cala America is also known as Campo America. The course is sprawled over the expanse of 6,009 metres, on a magnificent panorama that features the exquisite views of Sierra de Ojen as well as the Mediterranean Sea.
La Cala America golf course landscape features spiraled and undulating fairways, cavernous carries, and elevated tees. In addition to that, the course also features bunkers and hazards punctuated across the coarse and hilly landscape and contribute to the degree of intensity of the golf course.
Featuring swiftly graduated slopes of the golf course enhanced by the Pencross grass green and coupled with traps filled with marble chips as well as the strategically placed sand bunker – La Cala America is indeed the most difficult of all three golf courses of La Cala Golf Complex.
La Cala America golf course is perfect for a skillful and challenging game of golf and requires some immense precision and accuracy on the player’s part to make a swift and successful shot.
Holes 6, 9 and 18, par-5ths are particularly more challenging and the par-3 16th is a real treat to play. An emblem of the architectural brilliance of the designer Cabell B. Robinson, he takes pride in the complexity of the golf course and values it as one of its personal favorite works.
