Mijas Golf has two golf courses - Los Lagos and Los Olivos, each with 18 holes and designed by golf architect Robert Trent Jones. The golf resort is located in spectacular nature, surrounded by sweeping hills, and with an incredible panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline.
Los Lagos – Mijas Golf Club
Los Lagos golf course is the largest and most challenging of the two courses at Mijas Golf Club. It spans 6,536 metres and has wide fairways, with few forest obstacles. As its name implies, it's known for the lakes and waterfalls that weave in and out of the greens and fairways. As well as nine lakes, Los Lagos also has sneaky sand traps to keep you on your toes. Few undulations, large flat greens and wide tees allow you to choose the difficulty level that suits you.

Los Olivos – Mijas Golf Club
Los Olivos golf course is quite the opposite to Los Lagos, although designed by the same architect. For starters, it has lush vegetation, and its abundance of olive trees (hence the name of the course) that line the fairways, and its soft gentle rolling slopes are worth mentioning. Los Olivos golf course is great for golf players with more technical experience and great precision in the game. Along with Los Lagos, it is one of the most famous commercial courses in the Costa del Sol. If you want to know numbers, have a look at the scorecard and slope information for Los Olivos golf course.
