The course at the private Aloha Golf Club just outside Mirabella was the last one designed by the great Spanish architect Javier Arana, having been completed in 1975. Arana's best-known creation is El Saler; the story goes that he wept after completing it in the knowledge that he could do no better. His work here included a program to plant different types of flowering trees so that the course would be colorful all year around. The 6246-meter layout itself is tucked into a fairly small tract of rugged terrain with a great deal of relief. Play on the tree-lined fairways is rather confined, so straight shots are a must if one is to keep out of the brush and trees. The out-of-bounds is also frequently in play, and water hazards increase the challenge. The club hosted the European Tour's Open de Andalucia in 2007, 2008 and 2012.
