Fantasticly laid out course with great backdrops and feels like you are playing on your own. Pace was good and didn't see very many people on the course (but it was booked out)

Europa

We played the Europa course because I had read "A dramatic course but easier for the average golfer, with generous fairways, flatter terrain and slightly larger greens than Campo America and Asia."
I think that is highly misleading. The fairways were not flat and Europa felt like it was built wherever they could fit it in and hence all the fairways were somewhat on the side of a hill, so even a good shot could end up rolling off sideways into hazards, so unfairly punishing a good drive. Unless you could place your tee shot fairly precisely it was something of a lottery.
Compared to the other courses we played (Rio Real and Torrequebrada) the fairway conditons were bare and hard and some of the greens were somewhat diseased, although they did run true.
Overall it felt like what it was, a busy large resort designed to get as many people on it as possible. Our round took about 5 and a half hours to play - we were queueing at nearly every tee and there were no marshals to do anything about it.

Reviewed Apr 19 2016

4 of us played this course on April 12th. Handicaps ranged from 5 to 20 . We played it based on the reviews from previous players . While overall course condition was excellent , this course can be very penalising off the tee . Too many blind shots into the unknown and little chance of recovering your ball. Course is typical of a lot of courses on the Costa , carved out of mountains , where anything wandering just off course is lost forever. The starter was extremely helpful but our overall experience was soured by the service we received from the person in the pro shop when we requested towels for a shower . It was deplorable!!!! We played Los Naranjos, Mijas and Santana and I would recommend these 3 courses over any of the La Cala courses any day. We certainly will not be returning to La Calain the future.

A varied and challenging course given its relatively short length. Course condition a bit shabby in places but maybe because only in February.

Holiday trip

Well worth playing all 3 courses, though Asia would be our favourite, then Europe.

Very hard course. Not really suited to the level of golfers we are at. Of the 8 players, none of us had a good game. Lots of hazards and raised greens.

Reviewed Oct 20 2014


Stunning location, tight undulating fairways, greens were a bit bobbly and some long carries just to hit the fairways. Not suitable for short hitters with no bail out options I was ok but others in the group struggled on some holes. 240 yards for a par 3 with no bail out is stupid for a resort course. A few tweaks and it could be great for all standard of golfers. Nice not to be surrounded by holiday apartments for a change
