Forming part of Mijas’s growing Golf Valley, Cerrado del Águila Golf & Resort is located next to the racecourse. Its designer, Francisco Navarro, has taken good advantage of the available land, undertaking extensive earth-moving to ensure the fairways are flat and wide – very easy to play. The course is highlighted by its two par-5 holes, the 2nd and 9th – 520 and 555 metres, respectively. Most of the fairways are wide, combined with others that require more precision. The greens are not all that large but offer various pin positions. Most of the holes offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean.
HOW TO GET THERE
Take the Fuengirola Castle exit on the N-340, travel towards the Mijas racecourse (hipódromo) and from there follow the signs to Cerrado del Águila.
