Information About Mijas Golf on the Costa Del Sol Golf

By: Richard Allard


Mijas Los Lagos Golf on the Costa del Sol Golf is being constantly upgraded and refurbished to match modern day standards and is a very good mixture of holes to be enjoyed by all golfers whatever their handicap.

It is one of the longest (6404 mts in length) and flattest golf courses on the Costa del Sol as well as being spacious with few obstructions and practically no rough.


Exotic Araucalia Pines and perfumed Jacaranda line the fairways at Los Lagos all of which add to the charm of the course and make it a "must play" course for thousand's of returning golfers.

With two of the busiest and most popular golf courses on the Costa del Sol Golf, Mijas Golf Club is definitely doing something right.


Both 18 hole Mijas courses were designed by Robert Trent Jones in the mid 70s. and golfers will enjoy Trent Jones's creation with its gentle, undulating fairways and the general impression of wide open space.

It appears that the legendary designer wanted to create a course that was suitable for amateurs but, at the same time, he has also managed to present them with a challenge.


Mijas Los Lagos Golf is an ideal golf course for big hitters, but it also demands great concentration on the part of the player as well as short shots.


Mijas Los Olivos Golf has many distinguishing features that set it apart from Mijas Los Largos Golf, mainly it's abundance of trees hence the name, and its smaller size as well as fewer water hazards.


The greens are smaller, undulating and well defended. Although both are the work of the same designer, "Trent Jones" there is no doubt there are interesting contrasts between the two courses.


If Mijas Los Lagos Golf is based on water hazards and sand, then Mijas Los Olivos Golf is strategic, the fairways are narrow and tree lined and greens are elevated.


Both course's provide unique challenges and are ideal holiday golf courses.

Mijas Los Olivos Golf course was constructed originally between 1983-1984, although it has recently been totally refurbished (2000-2001) and is a completely different course to its watery counterpart.


The refurbishing program has made the course so much more picturesque, particularly around the lake areas and is characterised by the undulating fairways, twisted bunkers, small greens and trees that are at the least obstructive.


Mijas los Olivos Golf is considered to be the most challenging of the two course's and is a very good test of golf for all handicaps. Again, there is an excellent mixture of holes to be enjoyed, some of which have been altered or rebuilt with new tees and bunkers.

A well stocked golf shop is on site offering all types of equipment and accessories and is situated in the main building next to the Golf Reception
