La Manga Club, located in the southern region of Murcia, along the Mar Menor coast, is where you will find Spain’s largest golf resort. This is the most complete resort and is spread across 1,400 acres and is home to three championship golf courses, 28 tennis courts, professional football centre with 8 FIFA standard pitches (including one floodlit) and the Junior Football academy), European Cricket Centre (Home to the ICC European Cricket Federation), and rugby pitches, a wide selection of restaurants and bars and an extensive spa with a wide selection. La Manga Club really caters to everyone.
Two Fantastic Accommodation Options to Choose From:
La Manga Principe Felipe Hotel
Accommodation at La Manga is varied, with the La Manga Principe Felipe Hotel, a Five Star luxury hotel located at the heart of the resort and just a stones-throw from the main clubhouse, First tee boxes of both the North and the South course as well as the extensive and world-class practice facilities. This is truly a great hotel for those looking for luxury and pampering in five-star surroundings. Inside the hotel, you will find the main restaurant Amapola, which serves fantastic fine dining a la carte dinners and traditional Mediterranean cuisine. The Piano Lounge is always good fun of the evening with a live pianist playing modern classics and a true old-fashioned sing-song is common every night of the week.
Hotel Principe Felipe has 92 fully equipped and comfortable rooms with the highest quality of service guaranteed.
“ La Manga Club is a personal favourite of ours and the location of the Principe Filipe is just perfect for golfers, The North and South are located in front of the hotel as are the practice facilities, A great pool area and also a pool bar serving lunch throughout the day “
La Manga Las Lomas Village
Adjacent to the North golf course and resort spa is the Las Lomas Village, made up from the modern view apartments “El Pueblo” the old village which has a selection of 1,2 and 3 bedroom apartments and townhouses all designed in typical Andalusian style, have their own separate pool area and a selection of bars and restaurants for time away from the course. Right in the heart of Las Lomas, you will find Luigi’s, which is where the buffet breakfast is served but also a fantastic Italian restaurant of an evening, I can highly recommend the pasta vongoli with a chilled glass of Rose wine.
Las Lomas is a great way of experiencing La Manga club on a tighter budget but rest assured the accommodation is spacious of high specification.
Getting Around La Manga
Once on resort getting around is just so simple, The hotel has a fleet of their own shuttle buses that seat around 8 people named the “Wah Wah” Don’t ask why as I can not work out the translation. However this is a free service and absolutely spot on, the bus will take you to pretty much anywhere on the resort given prior notice.
“We do recommend giving yourself 30 minutes when booking this service”
Golf at La Manga
1. La Manga South Course
The Championship course at La Manga Club, the South, is probably one of the fairest tests of golf one can find. At 6,499 meters from the White Tees, whilst being accepted as a top-calibre championship course, it also provides a thorough test both for the scratch player and right across the handicap range. Located in the centre of the valley, with wide palm-fringed fairways and water hazards that come into play on 15 of the 18 holes, the South Course holds few hidden dangers. The many strategically positioned water hazards and bunkers will certainly punish any wayward shots.
2. La Manga North Course
An undulating, Resort-style course sprawling between palm trees, lakes and ‘barrancas’. These natural storm gullies feature on all three golf courses and add an extra dimension to the game. Slightly shorter than the South, with tighter fairways and larger greens, the North Course offers a different, yet no less challenging, a round of golf. A feature of the greens, all built to USGA specification, is the amount of movement incorporated in them, none more so than the short Par 3, 2nd, which has three distinct plateaux – a great test of putting. Relying on precision rather than length, an added challenge is provided by the wide
3. La Manga West Course
Do not be deceived by the length of La Manga West Course, as despite its short length of 6,250 yards, this is a tough golf course to master. The scenery around the course is beautiful and the course itself is well taken care of, providing a true and fast playing surface, especially on the fairways and greens. There is a good variety of holes and you never get the feeling you have seen the same hole before as you play your way around the 18 holes. Despite being a small and picturesque golf course, you must be on top form to score low at La Manga West
Practice Facilities at La Manga
Established in late 2019, the new La Manga Club Golf Academy has at its core the main objective of helping you enjoy your golf more by hitting better shots on the golf course. The academy is blessed with 2 state of the art teaching rooms, with Trackman and Bull 3D analysis systems on request, 4 separate group teaching rooms (great for visiting pros) and a 45 bay driving range and brilliant short game facilities, If honing you game is what you are looking for on a golf trip, Then I can not think if too many places that rival La Manga.
Our View On La Manga Club
“I often get asked due to my work in golf travel, Where is my favourite place to stay and play Golf. Well, personally and in entire honesty, I would more than often than not tell people La Manga, without even having to think. It is just the simplicity of booking a trip to La Manga and how simple and relaxing it is whilst staying in La Manga, yet still being able to deliver on great evenings out and full of variety and choice. Top that off with three fantastic golf courses, free shuttles around the resort, 25 minutes from the new Murcia RMU Airport and generally reasonably priced flights from the U.K and what is there not to enjoy”
