Judges from the industry-leading Golf World Top 100 Rankings have recognised La Cala as the 73rd best golf resort in the world in their recently published Top 100 World Resorts list.

This is the latest in a series of accolades received by the La Cala Resort. Golf World recently ranked La Cala Resort as the best 4* resort in Spain and the third best resort in the country. La Cala also received an Outstanding Service Award from the global golf tourism organisation IAGTO, in recognition for their extraordinary efforts to provide partners and guests the highest levels of customer service through the pandemic.

La Cala Resort General Manager, Sean Corte-Real, said: “It’s fabulous to receive such acclaim in this renowned ranking. To be named in the top 100 golf resorts in the world is incredible and it’s welcome recognition for the hard work and dedication that all the staff at La Cala have put in over recent years. We will continue to strive to deliver the best possible customer experience and to offer a golfing product of the highest quality.”

A distinguished panel compiles the Golf World Top 100 list – one of the golf industry’s most authoritative and respected rankings. Resorts are judged against four categories: Courses, Accommodation, Amenities and Setting, with points awarded for each. 

In Golf World’s Ranking, La Cala scored particularly highly in the courses section and the panel referenced the completion of recent course improvements as being a factor in that.

Commenting on La Cala, Golf World said, “La Cala’s cosy hotel is perfect for a relaxing afternoon by the pool, enjoying a world-class spa and indulging in La Bodega’s to-die-for tapas. But all that is topped by its golf offering. It has 54 holes and good luck trying to do a 1-2-3 of the courses, they’re so evenly balanced. The common theme? They’ve just been impressively renovated.”

La Cala recently finalised renovation works on the stunning Europa Course, as well as putting finishing touches to works on the beautiful Asia Course. And that all followed improvements made to the striking America Course a couple of years ago.

“We are thrilled with the work that has now been completed on all three of our courses,” said Sean Corte-Real. “We took the opportunity during the pandemic to finish our course improvements and can now offer guests a greatly enhanced golfing product.”
