DESCRIPTION

If any sport distinguishes La Manga Club as one of the best sports resorts in the world, it is golf.

The resort is home to three 18-hole golf courses, each with its own particular style: the North Course, designed by world-renowned golf course architect Robert Dean Putman; the South Course, also designed by Putman and later updated by Arnold Palmer; and the Dave Thomas designed West Course; as well as an 18-hole pitch & putt course designed by Severiano Ballesteros.

The magnificent golf facilities also include a Golf Practice Centre, which is amongst the best in Europe and the Leadbetter Golf Academy, where golfers can learn using the legendary David Leadbetter’s unique methods.

These are but some of the reasons that have contributed to the numerous golf awards La Manga Club has won over the years, including Europe’s and Spain’s Best Golf Resort, for example in the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards 2012, 2013 and 2014; as well being chosen as the venue for top level tournaments such as the Spanish Open and Spanish PGA championships.

LA MANGA CLUB NORTH COURSE
An undulating course sprawling between palm trees, lakes and ‘barrancas’. These natural storm gullies feature on all three golf courses and add an extra dimension to the game.

Slightly shorter than the South, with tighter fairways and larger greens, the North Course offers a different, yet no less challenging, round of golf. A feature of the greens, all built to USGA specification, is the amount of movement incorporated in them, none more so than the short Par 3, 2nd, which has three distinct plateaux – a great test of putting. Relying on precision rather than length, an added challenge is provided by the wide variety of water hazards and ‘barrancas’ that snake their way through the course.

LA MANGA CLUB WEST COURSE
Set amid serene pine woodlands, the West Course’s design closely follows the natural contours of the undulating land. Its distinct character makes it a good alternative to the other, more classical championship courses.

It is a deceiving course, with frequent changes in elevation with which to contend. The tight front nine demands accurate driving to avoid the ‘barrancas’ (natural storm gullies) while the back nine, up amongst the hills, is more open but nonetheless challenging.
