Mijas Golf opened in 1976 when it inaugurated the very popular Los Lagos course which was designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr. It was followed in 1984 by a second 18 hole course , Los Olivos, also designed by Trent Jone Snr.
At 6,367 metres in length, Los Lagos is a course suitable for players with a large, strong swing, but it also demands great concentration to avoid the obstacles. Los Lagos is a ground course with wide fairways, large greens and a few trees but it also has several bunkers and nine lakes, from which the course gets its name and which easily trap the ball.
With narrow tree lined fairways and elevated greens, Los Olivos is a course best suited for higher ability players. The main feature which distinguishes this course from Los Lagos is the abundance of trees – hence the name – and its smaller size, as well as fewer water hazards. The greens are smaller, undulating and well defended.
Facilities include a practise area, buggy hire, manual and electric trolleys, putting green, bar-cafeteria, restaurant, shop, changing rooms, showers and parking.
