La Manga Club looks towards the future with a new Golf Academy
Overseen by the renowned instructor Thomas Johansson, the opening of the new Academy, ‘La Manga Club Golf Training Centre’, combines the three most important European methods of training: Swedish, English and Spanish, adapting the classes to each person’s individual experience.
La Manga Club, 28th September 2016 – 1st October marks the day that La Manga Club will launch their new Golf Academy, a training centre with a new concept of learning, based on the previous experience of the student.
The renowned Swedish instructor, Thomas Johansson, will be in charge of directing the Academy, which up until recently will be called ‘La Manga Club Golf Training Centre’. This means that the new Academy will be a training centre rather than a practice centre. “The student does not practice alone. Here, we train so that your level of golf improves, by means of determined exercises and paying attention to progressive results”, explains Johansson about the method of training that will be put in place. The first interview with a student will determine their level and what they intend to achieve.
The teaching method of the new Academy combines three most important styles of training in Europe, such as the Swedish, English and Spanish. “Each culture has its own way of teaching and we have combined them together to form one. For us, golf is a sport for everyone, with great diversity, and for this reason we have adapted the classes to each person’s individual experience.”
There are many changes that will mark the arrival of Thomas Johansson, and for the next few months we hope to establish a continuous relationship between the Academy and the golfing and property partners, and the creation of a junior golfing team to represent La Manga Club in different tournaments throughout Spain.
The opening of this new Golf Academy represents the rest of the investments that La Manga Club have carried out over the years and in the last few months in their golfing section: the renovation of the fleet of buggies, the substitution of all the golf course signs and the upscaling of the bars and restaurants, such as 37 Spike & Sports Bar.
