La Cala Asia
Nestled at the feet of the mystique Mijas Mountains, Campo Asia is one of the three courses of La Cala Golf Course and stands out from the rest with its spectacular panorama, challenging holes and exceptional playing field constructs.
Initially named as the South Course, La Cala Asia or Campo Asia is the oldest of the three golf courses situated in the La Cala Golf Complex. It was originally designed by Cabell B Robinson and was opened for the players and visitors in 1988.
The course features a similar outlook and overlay, as that of the La Cala America, with a plush green panorama punctuated by graduating hills. However, what really distinguishes the course from the other two courses of La Cala Golf Complex is its interesting arrangement of elevations that occur at nuanced intervals over the expanse of 6,500 yards playing field area.
The field features fairly proportionate fairways and greens and is imbued with mysterious traps and bunkers that add to the degree of challenge and intensity of the game. The most interesting hole on the field is the 2nd hole that is double-tiered and set up in an l-shaped green. The field features patches of sand and grass with no water hazards or narrowing alleyways.
La Cala Asia accommodates the visitors with a variety of facilities including driving range, pitching/chipping area, putting green, practice bunkers, golfing school and professional coaches to provide an all-inclusive playing experience to the players as well as the non-playing visitors alike.
The course offers 5 stars off course and on course facilities and the courteous staff is readily available to help you with the layouts and course conditions. This is the reason why La Cala Asia ranks among the top picks of golfers, due to its facilities and ambiance that makes it a good value for money.
