Just back from my golfing holiday in the Costa Del Sol, heres what i reckon
Game 1;La Cala Asia-cost 94 euros inc buggy
tight and pretty hard, fairways were quite narrow, had that funny grass for rough that the ball sits down in so the full ball was "under the surface" making playing out of it harder.quite a few blind shots and a few good shots that took weird bounces. thought the greens were in poor conditon for a place with a reputation such as La Cala. Never got a gps and couldn't drive the buggy on the course. spent a lot of time running back and forth to the cart or getting pissed off and just playing the shot witht he wrong club cos the cart was to far away, got punished a lot for some shots which i thought were reasonable lost 4 balls so score was pretty much an N/R,
Overall, a bit disapointed, mainly due to the fact La Cala came witha huge reputation.
Game 2;Torrequebrada-cost 136 euros inc buggy
Lush fairways and slick greens, beautifully laid out course, shots of all varietys required, challenging course that required good shots to score but wasnt too harsh on the majority of wayward shots, fairways were of a decent size. got a buggy with a built in gps system+could drive on the fairways, allbeit in a limited manner, also got a pin position sheet along with your scorecard,Shot 80 and won 10 euros of an Expat Scot and an argentinian, who also invited us back to play at the weekend because we had such a good time playing together, sadly we never made it. Only downside was the tees, the grass was too long on them but i wasnt goin to let that spoil a great course and a great game.
Overall, No golfer should go to the Costa Del Sol and not play this course!! Awesome- and a step up from La Cala IMHO, thoroughly enjoyed this one.
