Golf at La Manga Club

Boasting three 18-hole championship golf courses, a nine-hole academy course and outstanding practice facilities, La Manga Club has enjoyed a rich golfing history since its inception in 1972, while its array of other outstanding sports and leisure amenities, bars and restaurants has helped establish it as a firm favourite with visiting golfers.

La Manga Club was the only resort in Spain to have three courses included in the top 40 of the updated list, with its West, South and North layouts among the leading climbers in the standings and combining for an impressive total rise of 53 places, and its West Course is in the top 100 courses in continental Europe.

The new acclaim follows quickly in the footsteps of the resort being named ‘Spain’s Best Golf Hotel’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards and is further recognition for La Manga Club’s decision to invest significantly in its golfing facilities over the last 18 months including opening a Leadbetter Golf Academy – the only one in mainland Spain.
