Played in May 2011 just after a storm and the course should really have been shut. It was an utter disgrace and had a digger in front of one of the greens. Given the fact that the course was falling apart, the lack of staff working to fix the problems was amazing.
In general, weather damage aside, I found the course to be very samey with a lot of similarity between holes. The greens were poor and the facilities were pathetic - the "clubhouse" was a portacabin.
Never play this course - pay... (read more)

We were made to feel really welcome by the professional Monty, who is a really funny American guy and the Director of Golf (cant remember his name), they gave us good hints and tips to the course and made us feel like members. I would recommend this course to anyone playing in this area, great day had !!! Excellent course, friendly staff, great value for... (read more)

Calanova Golf Course is set at a beautiful location in Cala De Mijas: sea & mountain views. The course is both challenging and interesting, but easier routes for beginners. Also has a driving range. I thoroughly recommend it. (read more)
