La Manga Club

La Manga Club Golf and Spa Resort (Murcia, Spain)

La Manga Club's Principe Felipe hotel is a splendid 5-star hotel built in an Andalucian design and is located perfectly within the resort next to two of the three golf courses, all practice facilities and restaurants. All guests at the Principe Felipe receive complimentary access to all spa facilities including indoor pool, fitness suite, saunas and steam rooms.

Every one of the hotel's 192 rooms have been elegantly designed to guarantee comfort during guests' entire stay. All rooms have marble bathrooms, a balcony or terrace, and many offer splendid views of the swimming pool and golf courses.

Club rooms are also available. These include access to the private Royal Club Lounge, offering complimentary all day refreshments, pre-dinner cocktail and canapés, VIP spa access, internet access, complimentary club cleaning, a daily newspaper, a 10% reduction in the golf shop and complimentary tennis court hire for an hour.

At La Manga Club, you have access to 3 x 18 hole championship golf courses: the South Course, North Course and West Course. The South Course is well known due to its hosting of the Spanish Open as well as European tour qualifying schools.

North Course (Par 71)
The shortest of the three La Mange courses, with tighter fairways and larger greens, the North Course offers a different, yet no less challenging, round of golf. A feature of the newly constructed 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. The shortest of the three courses at La Manga, the North Course is ideal for beginner and intermediate golfers.

South Course (Par 73)
Originally designed by Robert Putman in 1971 and subsequently remodelled in 1992 by Arnold Palmer, the South Course was completely refurbished in 2004. The Championship course at La Manga Club, the South, is probably one of the fairest tests of golf one can find. At 6,499 metres from the White Tees, whilst being accepted as a top-calibre championship course, also provides a thorough test both for the scratch player and right across the handicap range. The headquarters of the European PGA Tour and host to many world-class championships, earn kudos from your clients on this renowned and memorable course.

West Course (Par 72)
Set amid serene pine woodlands and outstanding views, the unique 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 nontheless challenging. With a range of challenging situations, this course is ideal for player development from beginner through to advanced levels.
