So Far Under Par

Dec 06, 2011 No Comments by

Designed by Falco Nardi and opened in 1990, Miraflores Golf Club has undergone a complete transformation. This unique course comprises of 18 holes each remarkably individual thus offering a true challenge to all levels of golfing ability.

Only three kilometers from the N340 and the A7 toll road at Calahonda, Miraflores is situated in the very heart of the Costa del Sol.

Ok that was some of the factual data over and done with. I do not know where to start with this one; a truly awful experience! Unfortunately I do not get to play golf as often as I would like, therefore when I do get the opportunity to play I want to enjoy all aspects of the course. However with Miraflores, the only enjoyable aspect was LEAVING!

The state of the course is way way way below par and this is not “just” fairways or “just” greens it is the entire course. Everything is a mess! They should be offering golfers a refund on departure and apologising for wasting their time. You might think this sounds unfair… but it is the truth. They could at least have the courtesy to inform people of the state of the course prior to taking their money!

This is exactly why we end up disappointing tourists who visit the Costa del Sol. A few experiences like this one and they will be taking their money elsewhere! Just imagine if some of the golfers on the course today had ordered a table at La Pesquera tonight…. Uh Oh!!  A nightmare day and a big goodbye to the Costa del Sol.

The worst thing is this could have been a great little course to play with your mates or your kids, like in the old days when golfers flocked in hoards. I remember as I was one of them and I really enjoyed myself, shame that these memories have been replaced with my current experience. If only the course could have been cared for and better maintained.
