The Fuengirola golf courses that will give beginners or high handicap golfers a great time.

Mijas Golf

Mijas Golf, just 8 minutes form Fuengirola,  is widely regarded as the most popular of the golf courses near Fuengirola.. There are two golf courses at Mijas Golf, Los Lagos and Los Olivos, each are outstanding and yet very different.  Designed in 1976 by the legendary Robert Trent Jones organisation both courses adhere to the design principle that defines great golf courses, “hard par, easy bogey.

Mijas Golf Course Los Lagos

Los Lagos has huge wide fairways that gently undulate as they lead to equally large sculpted greens. Lakes come in to play on 10 holes and give the course its name. From the championship tee this golf course is a beast and too tough for most players. From the Yellow, Blue or Red tees it will provide an experience that cannot be beaten. As always, in order to get the best out of yourself and have the most positive experience on the golf course it is important to choose the correct tee box for your game. If you drive the ball 230m (250 yards) then you will enjoy playing from the back tees. A drive of 200m to 230m means that the Yellow tee boxes will be a fair test, 170m to 200m and you will have a happy time from the Blue tee boxes. If your tee shot does not quite reach 170m then the Red tees will be great. By choosing the correct tee box you give yourself more chance of hitting the green in regulation which means you are playing the golf course exactly as Trent Jones intended it to be played.

The condition and presentation of both Mijas golf courses is outstanding, Los Lagos is my personal favourite and I urge you to try it!

The Los Olivos course, whilst very different in layout and appearance, shares that common design thread of hard par, easy bogey. Los Olivos is shorter than Los Lagos, the fairways are a little narrower although still easy to hit and the greens are smaller, often elevated and tough to hit. Los Olivos requires finesse whereas Los Lagos will reward those who play aggressively.

Los Olivos derives its name from the ancient Olive trees that line many of the fairways. It is a very pretty golf course and is the  favourite of most visitors.

Santana Golf

Santana Golf Course, Andalucia, Spain

This is another cracking golf course designed to make golf in Fuengirola a joy! It is not brutally long, many of the fairways are saucer shaped which really helps to keep the ball on the straight and narrow. The greens and bunkers are fabulous, the overall condition of Santana Golf  is excellent.

Again playing from the tee box that allows you to reach the par 4 holes in two strokes is the key to having a fabulous day. Santana Golf is situated within an old Avocado farm, many of the trees still line the fairways and in season you are very welcome to harvest a few! 

Santana is another exceedingly pretty golf course, rather like a garden of Eden, it has a tranquillity and serenity which adds to the experience. The hospitality team at Santana Golf will make your golf experience equally as good as your golf experience. The informal cubhouse is the perfect spot for a few beers and lunch after your game. keep reading to discover the affordable golf holiday packages in Fuengirola for Beginners.

Calanova Golf: Affordable golf holiday packages in Fuengirola for Beginners

Calanova Golf Course, Spain

Calanova is most unusual in that it suits everybody! Weather you re a novice, a high handicapper or a skilled golfer,  Calanova will give you a good day out.  The fairways are reasonably wide, so in most cases driving the ball is not an issue. However if, like me, you can be a little wayward, more than 30m offline then some of your drives will miss the fairway and probably disappear into the red staked ravines that run on one side of most holes. A good strategy is to try to leave yourself with the easiest possible shot into the green. If your favourite wedge flys 100m then aim to leave your shot into the green from 100m. Now you can calculate if you really need to hit a driver or not. If you can hit some hybrids off the tee then you will find more fairways and in turn more greens which makes for good scoring and an amazing day of golf!

The golf course is set in stunningly beautiful surroundings,The views from the golf course and the clubhouse cannot be bettered. You are given a vast panorama across the Mijas Golf Valley and over the expanse of the Mediterranean Sea. On a clear day you can see the mountain ranges in North Africa!

The clubhouse and restaurant at Calanova are very special, the food and service both excellent, and of course the clubhouse is home to Europe's biggest golf shop. Go and take a look!

Cerrado del Aguila

Cerrado del Aguila Golf Course, Spain

If 18 holes is too daunting, or maybe you want a quick game then the nine hole course at Cerrado del Aguila is the one to play. 

Set high on the hillside overlooking Las Lagunas and Fuengirola, Cerrado del Aguila offers some cracking views. The golf course is very good, a good test of both accuracy and power. Two of the par fives are monsters and will prove difficult. The par threes are easily reachable but make you think and the par 4 holes give an opportunity to score.

This little known golf course is  first class. It  is ideal for high handicappers and beginners and is becoming more an more sought after with those enjoying golf in holidays Fuengirola
