One of the biggest attractions that draws clientèle for a La Manga golf break every year is the extensive, world-class golf facilities on offer. The La Manga Club trophy case is laden with prizes from bodies like the World Travel Awards, denoting its status as Europe’s best golf resort. A look at the three beautiful courses on the rolling grounds and a glance at the endless menu of options for golfers of all calibres, quickly shows why La Manga is so consistently feted.
The La Manga team takes pride in offering customers a selection of three stunningly varied but equally impressive courses on which they can golf away a typically sun-kissed afternoon. The South course is probably its most famous. Designed originally by Robert D Putnam, before being remodelled by seven-time major champion Arnold Palmer in 1992, it truly is suitable for every level of golfer thanks to its wide open design and challenging hazards.
The North course may be shorter than its southern cousin, though it makes for an equally compelling round thanks to its cleverly crafted holes. Here, golfers will need to carefully place every swing to keep their score low. La Manga West completes the triumvirate, a varied and dynamic little course that runs across a rolling natural landscape.
Though guests are welcome to simply take to the courses and play, La Manga also offers some of the best training available anywhere in Europe in its David Leadbetter Golf Academy. A crack squad of PGA-qualified coaches are happy to put guests through their paces every morning of the week, in laid-back yet deeply informative sessions.
From sharpening putting to better club selection, cleaner ball striking, chipping, hazard determination and more, the resort has a huge selection of highly focused golf clinics guests may choose from. All these classes are aided and improved with A-Star Video analysis, using the world’s most advanced golfing analysis technology available to pinpoint where improvements can be made in a player’s swing.
While dedicated golfers will find themselves in paradise as they traverse the numerous courses and perfect their skills at the academy, La Manga doesn’t ignore the more casual player either. It also offers a highly entertaining 47 par pitch and putt course, which is great for a relaxed 18.
Junior players are well catered for all over the resort. In fact, there is a 40% discount on green fees for all players aged 15 or under.
Depending on how much golf a guest wants to play, there are a whole host of suitable packages available. Whether a party just fancies a quick spin around the course in-between enjoying the other delights of the resort, or they wish to dedicate their entire trip to the joys of the fairway, there is always a great deal to be had.
So, for the golfer of every standard, there is simply no better place to be for a golf break at La Manga Club Resort in Spain. It is little surprise, then, to see it so often heralded as one of the world’s most delightful golf destinations.
