The best facilities on the Costa del Sol

The Villa Padierna Michael Campbell Golf Academy boasts the best facilities on the Costa del Sol, including:

  • A large driving range with Taylor Made, Callaway and Titleist Pro V1 practice balls

The driving range features perfect landscaping with multiple targets and large, perfectly manicured grass tees at both ends. Our Dryrainge cover and performance centre also provides shelter for periods of intense sun and the occasional rainy day, meaning there’s never a time you can’t practice. Our range balls are premium, full distance balls with Titleist Pro V1's available for our clients to practice their short games with.

  • 6 Short game areas

Across the resort there are 6 short game areas, all with different features and in a different setting. No matter what you’re working on, you’ll always find a secluded place in which to do it.

  • 2 Championship golf courses; Flamingos and Alferini

It’s not often that one resort features two of the best courses in the area. Flamingos and Alferini are very different, Flamingos being high in character and requiring many different shots, and Alferini; a monster from the back tees that will catch any golfer out on the slightest of off days.

  • The exquisite Academy course, Tramores

One of the most interesting and fun short courses around, Tramores is perfect for new golfers bridging the gap between the range and a full 18 hole course and experienced golfers looking to develop the scoring aspect of their games. The Tramores area also features two of our short game areas and our performance specific gym.

  • Gym

Our Academy gym overlooks the course and practice facilities at Tramores and is exclusively for the use of our clients. 


  • Trackman, K-Vest, SAM PuttLab and SAM BalanceLab
