The latest and perhaps the most talked about edition to the La Cala Golf Resort is the Europa Course, which opened in March 2005, and has caused a stir along the Costa del Sol ever since. This is a far more demanding golf course than its two counterparts. Putting the ball in the fairway is without doubt the key to overcoming this course, while some fairways are very generous others are not quite so forgiving, It is however equally as accommodating for high and low handicaps. The Ojen River plays a major part in the golf course design, dissecting the layout and coming in to play on eight holes. The river cuts across three fairways, although La Cala Golf Resort have spared no expense in erecting some of the most extravagant bridges seen on the Costa del Sol. The par 5, 11th is the longest hole on the golf course, measuring a huge 524 metres, flanked by the Rio Ojen from tee to green. The 14th is by far the toughest hole on the course, at almost the maximum par 3 distance of 233 metres, the hole in full of danger. The Asia and America golf courses make up the trio at this spectacular golf resort.
