Mijas Los Olivos

Mijas Costa

Course Description:

Los Lagos was the first of the two courses, built in 1976, while Los Olivos was created a few years later, in 1984. Both courses were originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. following his philosophy of “Difficult Par, Easy Bogey”, with very little rough, much water and fairly flat land.

The success and good results obtained with this Lagos, along with the right economic situation of the moment, created the favorable atmosphere to build a second course, Los Olivos, in 1984. This course area is smaller, approximately 40 hectares, and it over passed an important rebuilding between 2000/2001, which was carried out by Cabell Robinson (disciple of Robert Trent Jones Sr.)

Los Olivos stands out because of its smaller greens with more slope, well defended by bunkers. Al the same time, the big number of Olive trees strategically located around the fairways, will require a more accurate and straight drive from the player. Los Lagos is considered a competition course, ideal for low handicaps but which can be adapted to any kind of handicap player; while, on the other hand, Los Olivos is the best choice for mid / high handicaps.
