The maintenance and presentation of a golf course are key factors in ensuring the satisfaction of the golfers. Those responsible at La Cala Resort are very aware of this fact and spare no effort to achieve the maximum potential from the golfing facilities that this this sunny coastal resort has.
With this in mind, over the past two years, La Cala Resort has completed the renewal and innovation of its infrastructure to maintain its three championship courses, investing over 350,000 euros in machinery and irrigation systems.
The equipment that has been incorporated is: six manual Toro Greenmaster Flex 2100 machines, five vehicles, a pest control unit, a Greenmaster Triplex 3400, Two Sand Pro 3040, one ProCore® 1298 for spiking Fairways, a Spiker 648 for greens, one Debris blower, a 5010H for fairways, a tipleta ante-green Reelmaster , and two tripletas Sidewinder for the rough.
The maintenance of the resort is carried out by a highly qualified team, led by Head Green-keeper Rafael Linares, a prestigious professional amongst his peers, as shown by the fact that last year he was nominated for the award of ‘Green-keeper of Spain’ in the accolades awarded by the Spanish Association of Green-keepers.
The nomination of the La Cala Resort green-keeper was based on the great work carried out in the hotel and leisure complex. Andalusian professionals valued “the achievements after only two years” of work carried out on the three golf courses, the Academy and the football field which are all found at the resort. Members of the association agreed to stress that “the improvements have been both noticeable and very significant”. On a personal level, they highlighted “the high degree of preparation” of Linares, his “responsibility” and being “a serious and hardworking person”, not forgetting, “the valuable team” that supports him.
The comments and reviews from regular golfers or those who frequently visit la Cala Resort, generally confirm the significant improvements that have been experienced in recent years on the resort’s golf courses.
