Costa del Sol Golf Courses
Parador - Par 72 6,717 yards
The oldest established course on the Costa del Sol. Parador is also one of the easiest courses to walk, as the terrain is completely flat. In 1999 it was host to the Turespana tournament. The front nine is mainly parkland while on the back nine you find yourself playing by the sea on a links course. A very enjoyable and challenging course to play.
Torrequebrada - Par 72 6385 yards
An outstanding golf course recognised as one of the most challenging on the Costa del Sol. The course has hosted the Spanish Open and many other Spanish tournaments. Winding through the foothills of the Mijas mountains, the fairways have spectacular views over the sea.
Lauro Golf - Par 71 6568 yards
A Falco Nerdi designed course which has taken account of the beautiful surrounding countryside. With nine lakes and an abundance of olive trees lining the fairways, this course has just the right degree of dificulty to make it an enjoyable round for most levels of golfer. A wonderfully friendly club, with a beautiful converted farmhouse for a clubhouse. Lauro is good value golf.
Alhaurin - Par 73 6843 yards
The wild growing rough is the main danger here, while the strategically placed bunkers and water hazards are reminiscent of American-style courses. With majestic views of mountains to the north and of Africa and the Mediterranean to the south, this is a fine course in a lovely natural setting. The fairways are long and narrow which means you will need to hit an accurate drive if you don't want to end up in the water hazards or the numerous bunkers and bushes. Having said that, the level of difficulty of the course can be adapted to all levels because of the versatile nature of the tees which offer up to 6 tee-off positions. The fourth, a par 4, has 2 bunkers on the right and 3 trees in the middle of the fairway. While it has a magnificent setting with spectacular views, the course demands accuracy.
Mijas Golf International

Los Lagos - Par 72 7161 yards
