Mijas Golf Course renews its fleet of electric handcarts

Mijas Golf, one of the most experienced courses on the Costa del Sol in operation since 1976, has had Powakaddy to renew its fleet of electric carts. The club has acquired ten units of the ‘PowaKaddy GPS Rental’ model for rent just as the Real Club Valderrama did recently.

This model, when carrying GPS, also helps golfers play more fluidly and reduce their playing time, something for which golf courses fight day by day. These carts are programmed from the ‘Administrator’ option so that they only have a pre-selection of the golf course in which it is used so that they cannot be unconfigured. It is ‘PowaKaddy GPS Rental’ is a technologically advanced element and, being a car with practically all the golf courses in the world already preloaded, you just have to set it up and play.

Spain is one the most popular golfing destination in continental Europe, with 313 courses to choose from and a climate that can be relied upon year-round.
The coastal regions – the Costa Brava, the Costa del Sol, and, increasingly, the Costa de la Luz – are the most appealing for holiday golfers. The Balearic and Canary Islands have so much to offer too.
Don’t stay home this summer.
Malaga is a good gateway for many of the golf courses of Andalucia. The city is easy to reach from all Europe cities.
More than 50 courses to choose from along the Costa del Sol, the oldest of which – and the closest to the airport.
Every golfer has his favourite, but several of the Spanish courses regularly appear in lists of the best courses in Europe.
A golfing holiday doesn’t need to break the bank.
And wherever you decide to play there are ways of keeping costs down. If you are taking your own clubs with you on holiday, this might have a bearing on the airline you choose to use. Any of the low-cost airlines will charge extra to carry sporting equipment, in addition to normal check-in baggage charges. So, club hire sometimes is cheaper and you can choose your dream golf set to play with.
Many golf resorts also provide facilities for other activities to fill the hours when you are not on the course – or to occupy other members of the party who may not be golf aficionados.
A popular example of this is La Manga Club, which began life as a golf course in a residential development. Now it is a major resort covering an area the size of Monaco, with a five-star hotel, self-catering apartments, restaurants and bars, a spa, tennis facilities and three championship golf courses.[...] read more
