Calanova Golf Course, located in the Mijas Costa Valley is one of the Costa del Sol’s newest 18 hole golf courses, having been opened in May of 2006. It was designed by D. Julian Garcia-Mayoral of Aymerich Golf Management and is a par- 72, 5866m in length course, set over hilly terrain and bordering its residential namesake, with several other renowned golf courses within close proximity.
Julian Garcia-Mayoral thoughtfully designed the course in accordance to U.S.G.A. rules and regulations concerning tees, greens, bunkers and drainage and gave it an extraordinary twist with some spectacular shaping which gives all players choices of all levels of pin positions.

The fairways give ample ball drop areas and as a general rule allow players to assess obstacles before hitting the ball. The course ingeniously uses elevated tees, water hazards, dog legs, the occasional hidden hazard, tiered well- protected greens, monster uphill par 5’s and a various assortment of tricky short shots to keep players interest and enjoyment stimulated.
The grounds are naturally planted with a variety of native trees which soften the more dramatic surrounding mountainous landscape. After your game, and freshen up in the Clubhouse changing rooms, you can enjoy refreshments and delicious food from the sea-view terrace at the restaurant or browse the many items on sale in the golf pro shop. Buggies and clubs can be rented here.
There is a pleasant putting green and driving range as well as professional tuition available. Calanova Golf Course is only 25 minutes from Malaga Airport and 15 minutes from Marbella, with good access from the N340 along the Cala de Mijas exit.
From almost all of the holes on the course, players can enjoy beautiful views of both the sea and the mountains. Most of the greens average over 500m so there is a great feeling of open space.
