by : Richard Allard

Calanova Golf on the Costa del Sol Golf, Spain is one of the newest courses on the Costa del Sol, located in the heart of Mijas Golf Valley, approx. 10 kms from Fuengirola and 15 kms from Marbella with easy access from the N-340 Costa del Sol coast road.

It is a private club with some 1,100 members but it is also open to paying green fee customers.

The 18-hole, par 72, 5.866 metres layout has been built to USGA specifications with regard to the tees, bunkers, drainage and greens, ensuring the best possible golf course conditions throughout the year and due to its unique design it has quickly become a local favourite.

Calanova Golf has been designed using its natural surroundings beautifully so that the medium handicapped golfers will find it a pleasure, yet challenging.

Tees are situated at different angles and levels providing golfers with the possibility of playing the golf course in a variety ways.

The greens have an average area of over 400 sqm and they have been shaped so that pin positions can be varied from the simple to the extremely difficult. The course has matured swiftly and the designers have made a first class job of what they had to work with.

There is ample parking but at the moment there is only a temporary clubhouse where you will find the pro shop, reception, changing rooms and showers. There is also a very fine restaurant, which has spectacular sea views from the terrace.
