Mijas Golf comprises two beautifully landscaped 18 hole golf courses which are among the longest established on the Costa el Sol. The quantity and quality of golf courses has increased greatly since Andalusia hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997, but few courses match the standard of Mijas Golf which has none of the 'housing estate' feel of courses which are dominated by the surrounding construction. The golf courses are close to the coast and are also convenient for exploring the rural inland area of Malaga province, with its abundance of orange, avocado and olive groves. Sevilla and Granada are only a couple of hours away, as are the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada. The 5* Los Byblos Hotel and the Tamisa golf resort are walking distance, with lovely outdoor dining facilities and cocktail terraces.
The villa is in the perfect location to meet every type of holiday need, whether you want beaches, cultural experiences, gastronomy, golf or any other type of sporting or leisure activity.
Other Activities: Almost anything you want!
Golf: Mijas Golf has two of the most popular and well established golf courses on the Costa del Sol. The 5 star 'Los Byblos' Hotel, connecting the two courses, makes the area distinguished. Golfers will enjoy Trent Jones’ design: gentle, undulating fairways with wide open spaces. Exotic Andalucian pines and perfumed jacaranda line the fairways at Los Lagos, and olive trees are in abundance on Los Olivos. Los Lagos is the longer of the two at 6404 Metres and it is named after its seven thirsty water hazards. The greens are wide but contoured and well protected by bunkers. Los Olivos, at 6009 Metres is a tighter challenge than Los Lagos. Villa PAR V is situated at one of the water hazards of Los Lagos, at the edge of hole number five.
The entire Costa is a golfers paradise and the unique sunny and warm climate makes the area ideal for lovers of this sport. When Valderrama was chosen to host the Ryder cup (1997), the Costa del Sol received world -wide recognition as being 'the best winter golf resort in Europe'. Ever since the number of golf courses has increased rapidly and there is a tremendous variety. You can choose to play in a valley, on the hills, in the bedding of an old avocado grove or along the sea side.
Every golf club has its own admission rules, but whether you are a beginner, an all rounder or a champion you will find a challenging course.
The club house is a wonderful place to enjoy the 19th hole and to meet an international crowd.
