Real Golf La Manga Club (West Course)
The West Course, with its frequent changes in elevation, offers a different set of challenges. 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. The front nine demand accurate driving to avoid the 'barrancos' (natural storm gullies), while the back nine, up amongst the hills, are more open but nonetheless challenging. The terrain of this course overall is described as hilly with a difficulty rating of hard.
