About Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe Holiday Apartment
La Manga has for many years set the benchmark for golfing destinations. It has repeatedly been named European Golf Resort of the Yearthanks to three outstanding championship coursesand comprehensive facilities of the highest standard.
The South Course is widely regarded as La Manga's premier layoutand frequently hosts prestigious regional and national eventsincluding the Spanish Open and European Tour Qualifying School. Originally designed by Robert Putman prior to opening in 1971the South was reworked by the great Arnold Palmer in the early 1990sand was sharpened up in 2004.
As a resultthis is now a fair but thoroughly exacting test of golf. The front nine is the tougherwith a number of longdemanding par-3s and 4sbut there are birdie chances on the long holes. The closing stretch is less difficultbut avoiding the strategically positioned water hazards and bunkers is crucial around this par-73 cracker.
La Manga's North Course presents a different testwith tighter fairways and larger greensall bordered by the resort's famous palm trees. The putting surfaces have recently been reconstructed in accordance with USGA design principlesand many have severe slopes and plateausthat are tricky to say the least. Accuracy and sound course management are the most valuable traits around the 6 291 yard Northwhich is a gem that will be particularly enjoyed by the creative shot-makers out there.
The West Course is also a genuine championship layoutunderlining the fact that La Manga has no weak links. Measuring in at 6 529 yardsthe West winds its way gently through the idyllic pine treesand has more severe slopes than its neighbours. The West is in fact the favourite of many repeat visitorsparticularly because of its unique setting and outstanding views. The fairways are tightso it is often prudent to play conservatively from the teewhile the West also boasts a collection of fabulous par-3s.
