Calanova Golf Club

 

The course is an 18-hole, par 72 and 5.866 meters long and was built according to United States Golf Association rules and regulations with regard to the tees, bunkers, drainage and greens.

Some of the interesting features include greens with an average area more than 500 M2. Players will find them very exciting due to the extraordinary shaping work. This characteristic`s of the course allows for a wide selection of pin positions, from the very simple to the most difficult.

The 1st hole is an interesting introduction to the course as your tee shot must carry a lake, although only 100 meters is required to carry the water hazard, first tee nerves have got the better of many a golfer. One of the signature holes has to be the Par 3 sixth, which measure some 165 meters and is a delight to play. The elevated tee gives you a superb view down to the green, which is protected by bunkers on the left and a large lake on the right. The green though is enormous and is flanked by palm trees on the left by the water’s edge, it is visual stunning and a joy to play.

The teeing areas are located on varying levels on most of the holes which makes for some interesting tee shots. Add to that the extraordinary landscape with stunning views over the sea and mountains from all around the course, and you have a memorable round of golf.

There is an impressive new club house at Calanova Golf which houses luxury changing rooms, the pro shop and a stunning modern restaurant which offers spectacular views over the golf course and down to the Mediterranean sea.

Although Calanova may not be regarded as one of the  top notch courses on the Costa del Sol, it is fast becoming more and more popular and overall offers very good value and enjoyable golf. Mix that with friendly staff and management and you have the recipe for a successfully run golf club for many years to come.

There are plenty of top Costa del Sol hotels to choose from. For the more budget conscious golfers then nearby Fuengirola has a large selection of hotels to suit all tastes and budgets. However if you prefer staying at high end luxury hotels then Marbella and the western end of the Costa del Sol maybe the place for you.

Calanova is a very popular course for visiting golf holiday groups  and can be quite busy during the high season,  so its best to book your tee time well in advance.
