LA CALA NAMED AS ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOP 100 GOLF RESORTS IN INDUSTRY-LEADING RANKINGS
GOLF WORLD TOP 100 RANKING PLACES LA CALA 73RD IN A LIST OF THE WORLD’S BEST GOLF RESORTS
Judges from the industry-leading Golf World Top 100 Rankings have recognised La Cala as the 73rd best golf resort in the world in their recently published Top 100 World Resorts list.
This is the latest in a series of accolades received by the La Cala Resort. Golf World recently ranked La Cala Resort as the best 4* resort in Spain and the third best resort in the country. La Cala also received an Outstanding Service Award from the global golf tourism organisation IAGTO, in recognition for their extraordinary efforts to provide partners and guests the highest levels of customer service through the pandemic.
La Cala Resort General Manager, Sean Corte-Real, said: “It’s fabulous to receive such acclaim in this renowned ranking. To be named in the top 100 golf resorts in the world is incredible and it’s welcome recognition for the hard work and dedication that all the staff at La Cala have put in over recent years. We will continue to strive to deliver the best possible customer experience and to offer a golfing product of the highest quality.”
A distinguished panel compiles the Golf World Top 100 list – one of the golf industry’s most authoritative and respected rankings. Resorts are judged against four categories: Courses, Accommodation, Amenities and Setting, with points awarded for each.
In Golf World’s Ranking, La Cala scored particularly highly in the courses section and the panel referenced the completion of recent course improvements as being a factor in that.
Commenting on La Cala, Golf World said, “La Cala’s cosy hotel is perfect for a relaxing afternoon by the pool, enjoying a world-class spa and indulging in La Bodega’s to-die-for tapas. But all that is topped by its golf offering. It has 54 holes and good luck trying to do a 1-2-3 of the courses, they’re so evenly balanced. The common theme? They’ve just been impressively renovated.”
La Cala recently finalised renovation works on the stunning Europa Course, as well as putting finishing touches to works on the beautiful Asia Course. And that all followed improvements made to the striking America Course a couple of years ago.
“We are thrilled with the work that has now been completed on all three of our courses,” said Sean Corte-Real. “We took the opportunity during the pandemic to finish our course improvements and can now offer guests a greatly enhanced golfing product.”
Situated in the foothills of the beautiful Mijas Mountains with breath-taking views of the stunning Andalusian countryside, La Cala’s superb 54-hole resort offers an idyllic rural retreat just 20 minutes from Marbella and only 30 minutes from Malaga airport.
The three superb championship courses at La Cala – Campo America, Campo Asia and Campo Europa – each present unique challenges and slot seamlessly into a natural, undulating backdrop of trees and flowers, rich with birds and wildlife. Designed by famous golf course architect Cabell B. Robinson, each 18-hole layout has been created to ensure a truly exhilarating experience.
La Cala resort boasts accommodation of the highest standard, including a 107-bedroom hotel, plus a selection of on-site Real Estate for sale and rental. Residents can enjoy the luxurious spa and a selection of excellent restaurants and bars. There are also further leisure opportunities with a FIFA-standard football pitch, running circuit, gym, tennis and squash courts.
Nestled between the arresting beauty of the Sierra de Mijas Natural Park and the shimmering Mediterranean Sea, La Cala is a genuine haven of tranquillity. It’s the perfect base for exploring Andalusia and Spain’s fascinating cultural cities like Granada, Seville and Malaga.
