Mijas Golf Guide
Home Of Two parkland courses
The Mijas Golf resort is home to two popular golf courses on the Costa del Sol, located within the Mijas golf valley, just 20 minutes from Malaga International Airport and a 30-minute drive from the chic beach resort of Marbella and the ever-popular holiday hotspot of Fuengriola.
Mijas golf offers two well-established courses, Los Lagos and Los Olivos both are popular with visitors and locals alike. The courses have become as much a part of golf holidays on the Costa del Sol as any golf club in Spain due to its excellent location, golfer friendly design and the chance to play on two top courses at the same club.
Los Lagos is the older of the two Mijas golf courses and is known for its wide and open fairways as well as its raised greens and abundance of bunkers. This course has a very open feeling and is considered to be one of the easiest courses in the Costa del Sol region.
In contrast, however, the newer of the two courses, Los Olivos, is much shorter and has much narrower fairways but it is known for having a more varied terrain with a few more rolling hills and trees to navigate.
Los Lagos was given a complete face-lift during 2012 mainly due to the drainage problems that existed in the past. It reopened at the beginning of 2013 and has since become one of the most interesting golf courses in the area. The course is playing better as the new grass has slowly settled and strengthened.
Los Olivos, having been constructed originally in 1983 and being finished in 1984, was renovated back in 2001. The course is located on a smaller track with different terrain characteristics to its sister course. With smaller greens and lots more bunkers that are tucked in the interesting places, while being perhaps easier to play it does offer good value golf at any time of the year.
Compared to a lot of courses along the Costa del Sol both the Mijas courses are generally open and flat and can easily be walked, buggies and trolleys are available and optional. The clubhouse is located in the old converted Andalucian farmhouse so and after round drink on the courtyard is highly y recommended.
If you are a group of golfers and planning a golf trip to the Costa del Sol including Mijas Golf Resort then you will almost certainly be better off with your own private transfers to and from the airport and your chosen courses during your trip.
