If there were one sport that distinguishes La Manga Club as one of the best sports resorts in the world, it would have to be golf. In recognition of its 45 years of existence and thanks to the quality of its facilities and its wide offer of services, the resort’s golf club has been granted in 2017 the title of “Real Golf La Manga Club” by The Royal Household of Spain. This high distinction has been possible thanks to the invaluable support of the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, Golf Federation of the Region of Murcia and Regional Government of the Region of Murcia.
The South Course has been the venue for many major professional tournaments, including several Spanish Opens, PGA Championships, for both men and women. At almost 6,500 metres from the white tees, it has water hazards on 15 of its 18 holes, wide fairways and a good combination of short and long holes. The front nine are particularly challenging with two par-3s in excess of 200 metres and some daunting par-4s, which call for accurate driving between lakes and bunkers. The back nine, although shorter, has a number of intriguing dog-leg holes.
