La Cala Resort Mixed Open

La Cala Resort is an idyllic rural retreat, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the busy coast, yet just 10 minutes from the sweeping Mediterranean beaches of the Costa del Sol, 20 minutes from Marbella and only 30 minutes from Malaga Airport. The promise of sun-drenched days on the fairways and laidback al fresco evenings, relaxing under the stars is hard to resist. The resort is host to 3 quality golf courses. But there’s so much more to discover at La Cala … a gorgeous destination spa, golf academy, superb sports facilities, three superb restaurants… come and find out for yourself.

Our 54 hole La Cala Resort Mixed Open is 54 holes (18 on each course) pairs better ball format. Included in the price is 4 nights accommodation ( based on 2 sharing a twin / double room) on a bed & breakfast board  basis and 3 rounds of golf, a shared buggy is included in the price for each round. A group meal and prize giving is included on the final night. Shared return transfers are also included between Malaga Airport and the Resort.

La Cala is passionate about their golfing pedigree and it shows. Designed by the renowned Cabell Robinson, each 18-hole course has been created to ensure a testing, yet truly exhilarating experience.

Campo America is 6009 meters, par 72 with five par 5s.  Formerly the North Course, Campo America is enhanced by spectacular views to the Sierra de Ojén and Mediterranean Sea. It’s wide, linked fairways and relatively few bunkers make this a slightly easier driving course, though the hilly topography requires a lot of carry across steep brush-covered side slopes. while the small raised greens demands more precise club selection to hit the mark. There are water hazards on the 9th and 16th.

Campo Asia is 5925 metres, par 72. Formerly the South Course, the spectacular Campo Asia has plenty of challenging holes, guaranteeing a testing round of golf which puts a premium on the approach shot. The oldest of the three courses and the one most respected by the professionals, it is narrow and short, with four par 5 holes demanding skill and strategy. Look out for the 10th with its classic design, and the 5th where the aim of your drive is especially critical. The 18th requires full concentration. Remember not to over-club off the tee or this lengthy par 5 could spoil your scorecard.

Campo Europa is 6014 metres, par 71. A dramatic course but easier for the average golfer, with generous fairways, flatter terrain and slightly larger greens than Campo America and Asia. Notable for one main bridge and four smaller bridges across the River Ojén, which features in eight holes, cutting across three fairways. There are four tunnels for golf carts. Water hazards guard the 3rd and 14th greens. The 14th is at the maximum limit of what is allowed for a par 3 at 233 metres. The par 5 11th is the longest hole at 524 metres.

The air-conditioned rooms at La Cala Resort feature views over the golf courses from the furnished balcony. They come with satellite TV and free Wi-Fi. Hydrotherapy pools, a Turkish bath and sauna are all available at the hotel’s spa. All guests can enjoy a free hydrotherapy session on prior request. A number of treatments are also on offer, such as massages and facials. La Cala Resort includes a restaurant, serving international and local cuisine. There is also a clubhouse and a lobby bar.

Is there any Group Discount available ?

Yes – We have a maximum of 3 free places available on a first come first served basis for anyone confirming a minimum of 8 guests (golfers and / or non golfers) as part of the same booking. Great for anyone arranging a trip for their local Golf Club or Society.

What does Minimum Number on Trip mean ?

Obviously a lot of organisation and expense goes into each of our tournaments so in order for any one trip to be viable we require a minimum of 24 guests on the majority of our trips.

Our trips are very popular so very few fail to achieve this threshold so we encourage you to book early to ensure your place.

Here’s how it works –

We set a ‘cut off date’ for determining if we have sufficient numbers for the trip. This is 180 days prior to the start date of the trip. This is because our resort and golf partners have blocked out a substantial number of rooms and tee times and if we are not going to proceed they need the opportunity to resell these.

When you book you will only be required to pay a £30 per person holding deposit – this is fully refundable should the trip not proceed. If the trip is confirmed but you decide that you no longer wish to join us you would forfeit this deposit.

If we do unfortunately have to advise you that we have not achieved the minimum number required to allow the trip to proceed you will have the option of continuing with the trip, but in the knowledge that the tournament will not be included. You will still benefit from the discounted prices that we have negotiated and will receive a £60 per person discount on the tournament inclusive price.

At 180 days prior to the trip commencing, once we have met the minimum number required, guests are required to pay a further deposit of £150 per person to confirm your place within 7 days.

The balance is then payable usually 45 days prior to the trip commencing.

Once we have confirmed that we have achieved the minimum number required for the trip to proceed we may occasionally offer ‘incentives’ to fill the trip. Rest assured that anyone already booked will benefit from the same ‘incentive’

What if the trip is cancelled after I have paid ?

Given the impact of Covid 19 on travel arrangements recently we have amended our cancellation policy to cover cancellation due to Covid (or any other major pandemic event).

If the resort is closed for the planned duration of the trip guests would be entitled to a full refund.

If the resort remains open but guests are unable to travel due to travel restrictions imposed either by the UK government or the host country government guests will be offered a credit against future tournaments at the same resort.

If guests choose to cancel for any other reason sorry but this would be loss of all monies paid.

What about Bad Weather

We have tried our best to plan our tournament destinations around weather seasons. However obviously we cannot absolutely guarantee the weather.

Our golf course partners will do everything possible to ensure that they course is fit for play following any adverse weather. It will be at the sole discretion of the golf courses to determine if the course is fit for play.

If the course is deemed not fit for play on any day guests will receive a refund equivalent to 1 green fee.

It is completely at the tournament organisers discretion to amend the competition rules in the event of any adverse conditions. For example tournaments may be reduced to 18 or 36 holes if the course is closed for any period or ‘winter rules’ eg lift clean and place may be put in place.

Refunds cannot be issued for any other element of the trip unfortunately.

Can I book flights with Amatours ?

No sorry we do not book flights.

Most of our non UK tournaments are in destinations well served by ‘low cost’ airlines who do not pay agents a commission.

If we were to offer a flight booking service we would obviously require additional resources, licences and insurances and if we cannot cover the cost of these through commissions from the airlines we would have to pass these on in the price of our trips.

However one word of advice – as a very small number of our tournaments do not achieve the required minimum number of participants and therefore may be cancelled please do not book your flights until we have confirmed that we have achieved the prescribed minimum and that the tournament will be proceeding.

Whilst we do not book flights we do try to ensure that our guests do benefit from the very high numbers of passengers that enjoy our overseas trips each year and have negotiated special deals with our airline sponsors which you will be advised about at the time of booking.

What are the Prizes ?

We have negotiated a sponsorship package with each of our host resorts and golf courses which means that the first prize is the opportunity for the winning pair to ‘defend their title’ at the following year’s event.

In order to comply with R&A rule 3-2a winners will receive a voucher for the cost of the event or £500 per person, whichever is the lower. In order to protect our guests Amateur status there can be no cash alternative sorry.

There will also be prizes for the runners up, which may differ from tournament.

Each round there will be a voluntary Two’s pot. Again to comply with R&A rules this will be at the discretion of each player to determine if they want to participate in the Two’s pot. Those that do pay £10 / Euro10 on the first day to enter.

Non Golfers

We recognise that a break from the day to day routine is precious time and some guests would want to bring a non playing partner with them. Non golfers are very welcome to join this trip.

The price for a non golfer is the same as for a golfer however we have negotiated with La Cala Resort that non golfers enjoy the following hospitality in the Spa at no additional cost.
