Golf Course Information
Golf Course Description
The La Cala Campo America course is a par 73 course that is severely undulating that is purposefully designed to manipulate the natural features of the rolling Mija hillsides to create a hugely formiddable test of a golfers accurracy and patience. This course is quite long even by modern standards at well over 6,700 meters, and as such long drivers will be at a distinct advantage. However long bombers must take care to avoid the multitude of deep gorges that line the fairways, while shorter hitters will be rewarded with better angles of attack through precision placement on these winding fairways.The La Cala Campo Asia course is much more flat than its Campo America counterpart and can be argued to be much less taxing on a golfers ability. As such it is much more suitable to golfers of all ability levels as it offers a much more well rounded challenge to golfers. Campo Asia is a par 72 course that is much shorter by modern standards than Campo America. Accuracy off the tee is regarded as a premium on this tight winding layout, with much smaller landing areas and a large array of trouble off the fairway. Punishment for wayward tee shots can be very severe.
The La Cala Campo Europa Course is the newest of the three courses and has been ingeniously created with golfers of all ability in mind. The par 72 course is challenging enough to keep low handicappers coming back time and time again, whilst also offering enough width and forgiveness to make the day enjoyable for those with higher handicaps or who are new to the sport. The fairways of Campo Europa are much more generous than the other two courses and the greens are also slighty larger and more forgiving. One of the most spectacular features of this 18 hole course is the River Ojen which plays a major part on 8 of the holes as well as cutting across three of the fairways, making this a truly breathtaking golf course.The executive course is a short pitch and putt style par 3 course that offers a fantastic opportunity for beginners to practice on and experienced golfers to warm up for their 18 hole round on. The course is a stiff challenge yet offers a fantastic views of the Meditteranean sea and the David Leadbetter Golf Acadamy that sits on site at La Cala Golf Course.
