Europe's finest sporting facilities

Famed for its world class sporting facilities, La Manga Club has something for everyone looking for an active holiday in the Costa Calida sun. Whilst it is probably best known for its 3 outstanding golf courses and world-class tennis centre, there are a huge range of sports and outdoor activities available at the resort.

Golf

La Manga Club is one of Europe's finest, multi award winning golf resorts for good reason. It is home to three outstanding 18 hole championship golf courses that have hosted many international tournaments. Each course has its own individual personality and layout, and all offer tranquil mature surroundings and amazing views over the resort, surrounding hills and the Mar Menor. In addition to the championship courses there is also a stunningly beautiful 18 hole pitch and putt short course designed by the Spanish golfing legend, Severiano Ballesteros. There really is something here for golfers of all ages, standards and abilities.

North Course

Designed by Robert Dean Putman, the world-renowned golf course architect.

Par White Tees Yellow Tees Blue Tees Red Tees
71 5,753m 5,429m 5,183m 4,964m

Slightly shorter than the South Course, it features tighter fairways and larger greens which have plenty of movement making them a good test of putting skills. Palm trees, lakes and barrancas' (natural storm gullies found on all three courses) are key features. The North Course is a stern test of shot making and requires a deft touch on the greens.

South Course

Originally designed by Robert Dean Putman and remodelled by Arnold Palmer

Par White Tees Yellow Tees Blue Tees Red Tees

The South Course has hosted the Spanish Open on numerous occasions plus many more major professional tournaments. At 6500m (from the white tees) it is a long course that features water hazards on most of its holes, long par 3s, daunting par 4s and intriguing dog-legs. A course that requires accurate driving.

West Course

Designed by Ryder Cup player and renowned course designer Dave Thomas

Par White Tees Yellow Tees Blue Tees Red Tees
72 5,770m 5,533m 5,130m 4,724m

With its back nine set amongst the hills, the West Course's frequent elevation changes offer a distinctly different feel and provide a fresh set of challenges to the La Manga Club golfer. The wind is often a factor on this course, where long carries from spectacular elevated tees will test your driving. The 18th providing perhaps the most memorable view of all (one of the best on the resort), it is a fitting finale to a round of golf on the West Course.

Pitch & Putt Short Course

Designed by Severiano Ballesteros.

Par
47

This lovely little course is perfect for improving your short game and features numerous hazards including bunkers and plenty of water. As you would expect from such a prestigious course architect, the par 3s are very well thought out and the greens offer a genuine test of putting skills. This beautifully landscaped short course does not disappoint.

Golf Practice Centre

In addition to its three great courses, La Manga Club is also boasts some of the best quality golf training resources available. The redesigned driving range and practice facilities are now on a par with the best in Europe and the Golf Academy is home to a team of professional coaches, led by the renowned golf instructor Thomas Johansson who has pioneered a new teaching system.
