Los Olivos and Los Lagos
Why not take advantage of our latest multicourse options and play on the beautiful Mijas Golf course.
Just before you reach the village of Mijas, nestled in the hills above Fuengirola about 4km in from the Coast, along the Coin road you will find the Mijas International Golf Resort.
Mijas Golf opened its doors back in 1976 when it inaugurated the very popular Los Lagos course which was designed by the Robert Trent Jones Snr. It was followed in 1984 by a second 18 hole course , Los Olivos.
The fairways of the Los Olivos course are lined with an array of native trees (hence it’s name) such as tall pine, ancient olive and soft wispy willows. This gives the course a very natural parkland feel. course!
The design of the course, which is built on a smaller piece of land than its twin and neighboring Los Lagos, incorporates both flat and undulating areas and doesn’t include much rough. The protection of the cleverly placed and numerous bunkers is challenging and requires a high level of technical ability and precision. The consistent ability to produce long straight shots is a distinct advantage on this course.
Los Lagos underwent a multi million Euro face lift in 2012 reopened once again to the public in January 2013. It should be a superb course to play in the coming years, who knows it might even regain its former glory as on the coasts most popular golfing destinations, time will tell.
Los Lagos, aptly named for its abundance of lakes, shares the characteristic of having very little rough. This course has fewer trees than Los Olivos, giving it a very expansive open feel. It features wide fairways, large raised greens and water hazards. At 6,348m long, it is one of the longest courses on the Costa del Sol. The designer has met the challenge of providing a course suitable for amateurs but remaining challenging enough for the best of players. Los Lagos requires concentration and skill because of it’s obstacles, and is better suited to players with a strong swing.
The old “cortijo” (farmhouse) style Club House building has a well stocked rentals and sales golf shop and a top class international restaurant.
Tuition and classes are available as is an ample driving range. Plan to include this course in your golf holiday and you won’t regret it.
