MIJAS GOLF CLUB: LOS LAGOS.- With its 6,536 meters, this course is the larger of the two in Mijas Golf. Keeping the original design of Robert Trent Jones Sr., the course has been totally refurbished in 2012. Los Lagos is a course with soft slopes, wide fairways and few forest trees obstacles, but defended by many bunkers and not less than nine lakes, from which the course gets its name, eager to trap each and anyone's ball. The greens are large and flat with sensitive undulations and the wide tees can be accommodated to reduce or enlarge the difficulty to choice.
Los Lagos is a course suitable for kind of handicap players, being one of the most famous commercial courses of the Costa del Sol.
How to get there:
Mijas Golf can be found situated in the province of Malaga, at the end of the municipality of Mijas, although geographically it is closer to Fuengirola and for this reason it is possible to avoid travelling through Mijas Village to access the course.
Drive along the national highway N-340 along the coast direction to Malaga, take the exit for Parque Acuático Mijas (Mijas Water Park) and once you reach the roundabout, follow the road to Coín - the MA 7053 - in the direction of the mountains. The signs indicating "Hotel Byblos" can be followed to reach Mijas Golf.
From Malaga - Airport:
Take the national highway A-7 along the coast and when you arrive in Fuengirola, by passing "El Corte Ingles" C.C, take the exit Fuengirola/Coín NO. 209 (just after an overhead pedestrian bridge with the words "Bienvenido a Las Lagunas"); once you reach the roundabout, follow the road to Coín -MA 7053- direction to the mountains. You will get to a big roundabout; go straight on directions to Entrerríos/Alhaurín keeping on the same road -MA 7053-. The signs indicating "Hotel Byblos" can be followed. Ignore any sign for Mijas pueblo (Mijas Village).
