SWING TIME: The new course will be Velez-Malaga’s second

A NEW Axarquia golf course has been given the green light to be built on a 1.7 million metres-squared site.

The residential golf complex, Juvigolf, is now just waiting on final approval from the Ministry of Public Works before work can begin.

Following a positive environmental report and submission of adequate plans for drinking and irrigation water supplies, the ministry is unlikely to object.

The €300 million project includes an 18-hole golf course, more than 1,500 homes and a four-star hotel, as well as a restaurant.

The complex, 3km north of Chilches, is expected to be completed between 2020 and 2050.


  1. Both above comments are spot on. Why not use the dirty water to regrow the oak forests that once covered Andalucia – a real investment for the future and as Fred said build a university and employ people by merit and not by who they know – same old, same old.
