Also known as the South Course, Campo Asia is perhaps the toughest golf course on La Cala. Respected by amateurs and professionals alike, it puts accuracy to the test.
Set amongst the foothills of the Mijas mountains, the course is naturally hilly with plenty of opportunities to take tee shots from elevated positions. This is presumably a new challenge for plenty of British golfers more accustomed to flatter links courses.
Campo Asia, in use at La Cala since the 1980s, comes with its fair share of dangers to any player. As well as narrower fairways than its counterpart, Campo America, there are more sand traps to look out for. Putting surfaces are often surrounded by concealed bunkers, due to their elevated position relative to the fairway. Some knowledge of obstacle placement should help you through Campo Asia with a lower score.
The greens at the 3rd and 14th holes are also protected by lakes, but the signature hole is perhaps the 18th. A long par 5 with a very narrow fairway to drive into, it requires complete accuracy to avoid the bushes awaiting on either side.
Campo Asia, due to its challenging obstacles, is perhaps best reserved for more frequent golfers. Beginners are better advised to take on neighbouring Campo America.
