La Cala Resort (Asia course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1990

La Cala Resort (Asia course): La Cala's Campo Asia layout (formerly known as the South course) is even hillier, the fairways tighter and the bushes more impenetrable than on the neighbouring Campo America course, which is difficult enough. After a straight-jacketing front-nine, relieved only by splendid views across to Mijas and high sierras in the distance, the back-nine provides no let-up, but it does have some wonderful holes.

Stars of the show are the closing trio - a needle like par-5 16th, the tricky, well-bunkered par-3 17th and the short par-4 18th. Only after two or three rounds here will you start to work out how best to play this undulating, tight and demanding course. As with the other two 18-hole courses at La Cala, green-keeping is generally very good.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
