The two courses, Los Lagos and Los Olivos, are situated in the valley of Mijas, north of Fuengirola, only twenty minutes from the Málaga international airport and Marbella and 3.5 kms from the Mediterranean Sea.
Los Lagos was the first course to be constructed under the direction of Mateo Pérez Robles, one of the pioneers of the tourist industry on the Costa del Sol. This course presents wide fairways with numerous lakes -hence its name-, the water hazards which one finds at the 9th and 18th holes and also the many trees which are strategically placed to protect the large greens.
The excellent economical situation and the good results created the favourable atmosphere to build the new course, Los Olivos.
Los Olivos was constructed originally between 1983-1984, although it has recently been totally refurbished (2000-2001). This course lies on a smaller piece of land and has different characteristics to its brother. The greens are smaller with undulations and are well-protected by bunkers. Moreover, it has a large number of olive trees strategically situated around the fairways which demand a strong and straight drive from the player.
Both courses pay homage to the architect’s philosophy “Difficult par, easy bogey”, with very little rough, plenty of water and relatively flat.
