Mijas Golf opened its doors back in 1976 when it inaugurated the popular Los Lagos course which was designed by the Robert Trent Jones Snr. It was followed in 1984 by a second 18-hole course, Los Olivos.
The fairways of the Los Olivos course are lined with an array of native trees (hence its name) such as tall pine, ancient olive and soft wispy willows. This gives the course a very natural parkland feel.
The design of the course, which is built on a smaller piece of land than its twin and neighbouring Los Lagos, incorporates both flat and undulating areas and doesn’t include much rough. The protection of the cleverly placed and numerous bunkers is challenging and requires a high level of technical ability and precision.
