Hotel, rooms, food and location again fantastic. Played all 3 courses and whilst the greens were great, the bunkers on all of them were simply unplayable - ironically, they were re-sanding them on the day we were leaving. The tees were a bit 'rough' and look like they needed a good watering. Fairways good. Buggies essential - we were allowed... More

We have played this complex previously on the Europe course. We played the America course this time and found it to be of a similar standing. The first hole is a great driving hole off the top of a cliff. The rest of the course is varied in its challenge and is never boring. Facilities at the complex are very... More

Having stayed and played at La Cala over many years I have watched it evolve from the South and then North courses, to what we have today. I am a single figure player and I would rank the three courses in level of difficulty as Asia - hardest, Americas - medium and Europa the easiest. This is not to say... More

We have previously played the America Course which we loved. This time we played the Asia Course which was even better. A beautiful but challenging course. The greens were quite fast but true.

We returned to La Cala after an absence of 6 years and excellent, as usual. 3 good golf courses on site with buggies included and some very difficult holes for high handicappers! My only criticism is that the bunkers were looking very tired and in need of attention.

Situated high in the hills above Marbella this course offers spectacular holes right from the off. The first tee is set around 50ft above the fairway with a river on the right hand side so beware of a slice!

This is a beautiful golf course with 3 times 18 holes. The 3 courses are all very different and excellent maintained. There are some very challenging parts but also forgiving areas. For golfers of every level a nice course. The difference in hight are great as well as the views. You definitely need a buggy to get around.
