Situated high in the hills above Marbella this course offers spectacular holes right from the off. The first tee is set around 50ft above the fairway with a river on the right hand side so beware of a slice! All of the remaining 17 holes present their own challenges and some will severely test high handicap players but don't let... More

This is a beautiful golf course with 3 times 18 holes. The 3 courses are all very different and excellent maintained. There are some very challenging parts but also forgiving areas. For golfers of every level a nice course. The difference in hight are great as well as the views. You definitely need a buggy to get around.

Played here early April and have to say was by far the best course around (compared to El Chapparel and Cobopino). Greens were in good condition and course (Europe) was also good all round. Took the mandatory 5 hours but that is normal for this part of Spain. Hotel and clubhouse are fantastic and modern and prices were okay also... More

This was my fourth trip back to La Cala and I really enjoy the Resort. I will hopefully return again in 2018. Courses were in excellent condition and the pace of play was good. The only slight issue I have is that the customer service aspect of the golfing experience could and should be a lot better. We spent a... More

Not one to go back to in my opinion, sorry. Played the Americas course, 5 + hours out there, slopes everywhere, fair and unfair we thought. Clubhouse and service all OK, but just disappointed by the course especially as it had a reasonable reputation.

Played the Europa course last year so decided to try the challenge of the America this year. In my opinion its far far harder you can be punished for good shots as a lot of the holes camber away . greens lightning fast, well kept fairways, Its probably better suited to the low handicap player as distance of the tee...
