What a great way to enjoy some winter sun with golf in Real Golf La Manga Club in Murcia
04 October 2019
La Manga Club is now part of the Hesperia Hotels & Resorts family.
In recognition of its nearly 50 years of existence and thanks to the quality of its facilities and its wide offer of services, the resort’s golf club has been granted in 2017 the title of “Real Golf La Manga Club” by The Royal Household of Spain.
Set amid serene pine woodlands, the West Course's design closely follows the natural contours of the undulating land. Its distinct character makes it a good alternative to the other, more classical championship courses.
It is a deceiving course, with frequent changes in elevation with which to contend. The tight front nine demands accurate driving to avoid the 'barrancas' (natural storm gullies) while the back nine, up amongst the hills, is more open but nonetheless challenging.
The West is many golfers' favourite, both because of its unique setting and outstanding views and because of the challenge offered by its narrow fairways, frequent blind shots and the gullies which snake through the course. The breathtaking views, undulating fairways and fast greens make this course particularly exciting to play. Unlike a lot of courses, having played here, golfers feel that every facet of their game has been tested to the full. Especially the Par 3 holes, which are a collection of probably the best short holes to be found anywhere on one golf course. Accuracy and good golf course management, as opposed to length, are very much a premium.
