Mijas Los Lagos
Mijas Los Lagos was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr is located in the sought-after area of Mijas Costa, a mere 20 minutes from Malaga in Costa del Sol, Spain. In 2012 the course was closed for one year and underwent a full makeover, widening fairways, adding new streams, lakes and bunkers plus installing a state-of-the-art watering and drainage system, which allows the course to be played in all weather conditions.
Mijas Los Lagos is a golf course with soft slopes, wide fairways and few forest tree obstacles, as its name suggests the course uses water as a major feature and comes into play on nine holes.
One of Mijas Los Lagos’s most characteristic and difficult holes is the par 5 thirteenth. Seen from elevated tees it looks deceptively easy but at the approach to the green there is water left and right, also beware of the slope as even a well-hit shot is in danger of rolling off the green into the water. the 5th a 571-metre monster is also “interesting”.
The golf course is very open and almost free of rough and is practically flat except for a slight incline up the 18th hole and unless you find one of the many lakes you will struggle to lose a ball.
Mijas Los Lagos clubhouse is a traditional Andalusian farmhouse that is ideally located between the two golf courses, the perfect place to meet with fellow golfers both before and after your game.
