The global golf tourism organisation IAGTO has awarded the La Cala Resort with an Outstanding Service Award for the 2nd year running.


Over 650 IAGTO members and golf tour operators were invited to vote for up to five golf destinations and five golf travel suppliers who delivered an exceptional experience and service for their golf travelling customers in 2022. From these nominations, only 60 companies and organizations received the IAGTO Outstanding Service Award.


La Cala Resort has worked incredibly hard over recent years to welcome guests from all over the globe and provide them the highest levels of service during their time at the 4* golf resort. The IAGTO golf tour operators recognised this level of hard work, voting for La Cala for the 2nd year running as one of the resorts that delivered ‘the best experience and service for their golf travelling clients’ – a title which only eight other resorts in Spain received in this year’s awards.

“We are very proud to receive this Outstanding Service Award from IAGTO,” said Sean Corte-Real, Director of La Cala Resort. “In recent years, we have looked to make improvements both on-and-off the golf course, ensuring all of our facilities at La Cala are of the highest standard. We are very proud of the changes we’ve implemented and excited for more guests to experience these improvements in the future.”


This is the latest in a series of accolades received by La Cala Resort. Judges from the industry-leading Golf World Top 100 Rankings recognised La Cala as the 73rd Best Golf Resort in the world and 13th best golf resort in Europe.

The rankings also placed La Cala as Spain’s leading 4* Resort and the country’s third best Resort overall.


After finalising works on the stunning Europa Course and applying the finishing touches to the changes on the Asia course, La Cala looked to improve their resort and hotel, utilising effective sustainable and environmentally friendly practices along the way.


State-of-the-art solar panels have now been implemented on the maintenance buildings at La Cala, helping to power a number of the resort facilities with an alternative and more sustainable solar energy power source.


On the golf course, La Cala continues to utilise their recycled lake water and state-of-the-art pumping system for more sustainable water usage. Meanwhile constant mulching methods and improved bunker renovations decreased the amount of fuel needed for the maintenance team and their mowers.


After completing the first phase of improvements to the outdoor terrace area of the La Cala clubhouse, Spain’s leading 4* golf resort has recently finished completing changes to the indoor seated area of the clubhouse bar and restaurant. This latest indoor renovation will provide a refreshed, modern look to the Clubhouse bar and restaurant, filled with updated seating and stylish furniture. Combined with a new and improved clubhouse menu, the renovated clubhouse will provide the ideal setting for all La Cala guests.


Situated in the foothills of the beautiful Mijas Mountains with breath-taking views of the stunning Andalusian countryside, La Cala’s superb 54-hole resort offers an idyllic rural retreat just 20 minutes from Marbella and only 30 minutes from Malaga airport.


The three superb championship courses at La Cala – Campo America, Campo Asia and Campo Europa – each presenting unique challenges and undulating backdrops. Designed by famous golf course architect Cabell Robinson, each 18-hole layout has been created to ensure a truly exhilarating experience.

La Cala Resort boasts accommodation and facilities of the highest standard, including a 107-bedroom hotel with excellent bars and restaurants on-site.
