Good hotel but probably not 5 star, odour of drains in rooms an corridors.

Golf Courses at Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe
The South Course is widely regarded as Real Golf La Manga Club's premier layout, and frequently hosts prestigious regional and national events, including the Spanish Open and European Tour Qualifying School. Originally designed by Robert Putman prior to opening in 1971, the South was reworked by the great Arnold Palmer in the early 1990s, and was sharpened up in 2004. As a result, this is now a fair but thoroughly exacting test of golf.
Designed by: Robert Dean Putman
Opened for play: 1971
Did you know? The par three at the 12th, is the hole that witnessed the oldest ever man to achieve a hole in one.
Previously hosted: Spanish Open (1975), PGA Championships, European Tour qualifying schools
White: 7,107 yards, SSS 74
Yellow: 6,700 yards, SSS 73
Blue: 6,276 yards, SSS 77
Red: 5,620 yards, SSS 73
Signature Hole – No. 18: Par 5, 452 yards (White Tees)
The closing hole is unforgiving. Drives must be hit around a fairway bunker and two large bunkers which flank both sides of the fairway. The green, although large is very well protected and its multi-tiered nature requires a confident putt.
Real Golf La Manga Club's North Course presents a different test, with tighter fairways and larger greens, all bordered by the resort's famous palm trees. While this course may be for the higher handicapper, it makes up for its lack of challenge, which can be found in La Manga’s other two courses, by priding itself on its beauty, boasting some very attractive holes. It is much hillier than the south and many of the fairways are lined with palm trees, while imaginative greenside bunkering is sustained throughout.
The back nine certainly presents a better set of holes than the front, with the par four 13th leaving you with a tee shot that requires a confident club choice and a 18th hole which is satisfying to say the least. The putting surfaces have recently been reconstructed in accordance with USGA design principles, and many have severe slopes and plateaus, that are tricky to say the least. Accuracy and sound course management are the most valuable traits around the 6,291 yard North, which is a gem that will be particularly enjoyed by the creative shot-makers out there.
Designed by: Robert Dean Putman
Opened for play: 1971
Did you know? The North course was completely refurbished in 2001
White: 6,291 yards, SSS 71
Yellow: 5,937 yards, SSS 69
Blue: 5,668 yards, SSS 73
Red: 5,428 yards, SSS 71
Signature Hole – No. 18: Par 5, 340 yards (White Tees)
The 18th is a lovely finishing hole, with the hotel pool in the background reminding you that your post round refreshments are not far away. In fact, only a short walk back to the clubhouse bar.
The West course is unquestionably the pride of Real Golf La Manga Club, with an amazing variety of holes. A beautiful course with spectacular scenery everywhere you turn, it provides a demanding test of golf requiring a first-rate game management. Frequent changes in elevation and fast greens, can cause bad shots to be punished severely.
The West Course is also a genuine championship layout, underlining the fact that Real Golf La Manga Club has no weak links. Measuring in at 6,529 yards, the West winds its way gently through the idyllic pine trees, and has more severe slopes than its neighbours. The West is in fact the favourite of many repeat visitors, particularly because of its unique setting and outstanding views. The fairways are tight, so it is often prudent to play conservatively from the tee, while the West also boasts a collection of fabulous par-3s.
The pearl of the front nine is the 9th which has an uphill tee shot, before the hole bends backwards at right angles into a ravine to the front and a lake at the back. The back nine boasts a lovely streak of four closing consecutive holes, including a par three 16th with little margin for error, before ending with a magnificent 18th.
Designed by: Dave Thomas
Opened for play: 1996
Did you know? The former Formula 1 World Champion, Nigel Mansell, labelled the 18th on the West Course as ‘a great finale’ stating that ‘the magnificent view from the tee is always something to look forward to’.
White: 6,310 yards, SSS 74
Yellow: 6,050 yards, SSS 72
Blue: 5,610 yards, SSS 75
Red: 5,166 yards, SSS 73
Signature Hole – No. 18: Par 4, 409 yards (White Tees)
Although the 18th tee is a bit of a walk up a hill, it gives plenty of anticipation for what is a fantastic closing hole. Once at the top you are greeted with a tee shot at the top of a small mountain overlooking a wide fairway-a 200 yard carry and the wind looking to play its part. An intimidating shot. However, what makes this hole truly special is the view for miles distant, the landscape spreading beyond the Real Golf La Manga Club complex, over the countryside and into the sea. A final picturesque image for a remarkable course.
The practice facilities at Real Golf La Manga Club are second to none. The Golf Practice Centre is seen to be one of the finest in Europe, while the Leadbetter Golf Academy is known for its innovative and creative teaching techniques. The new academy was founded by David Leadbetter himself, a coach to countless PGA Tour, European Tour, LGPA Tour and Champions Tour players. It has two swing rooms and four teaching studios for groups.
On top of this, La Manga possesses a beautiful par 47 “pitch and putt” course ideal for perfecting your short game. The course is well designed with bunkers, water hazards and excellent greens for putting.

Real Golf La Manga Club contains two Clubhouse restaurants. Bar 57, which can be found at the main golf clubhouse, offers golfer’s breakfast, lunch and dinner, with free Wi-Fi and a terrace overlooking the golf courses. It’s open all year from 7:00 to 19:30.

Also open all year round, for breakfast and lunch.

Excellent all round although the hotel room and foyer could have been anywhere in the world in that it lacked any local Spanish flavour, but all in all I guess it’s set up to deliver a practical functional experience for mostly international golfers
The room was ok but it had a damp problem and you could smell this in room and carpet in corridor was stained and constantly wet. Also was supposed to get 15 euro room credit but hotel refused to honour this deal which was annoying when settling water bill (3 euros for small bottle) at end of stay.
Accommodation was all we expected it to be having stayed there several times before.
very efficent staff
the accommodation was very good but hotel certainly needs refurbishment. staff and breakfast were very good
Sorry, your filter options returned no results.
Best course of the three for me although probably easier than the West. As on the South course there was a lot of pitch mark damage on the greens.
Good course and interesting holes, not as difficult as the West Course. Rather irritating caddy master saddling our three ball with an additional player (although Juan was very friendly if slightly slow) then persistently telling us to speed up!
Very interesting and challenging course. Generally in very good condition.
First out meant we went round in under 4 hours. Nice course, lots of water but playable. Greens ok but again too many pitch marks creating deviation on key short puts. I guess all these courses are over played and this does compromise their quality. Fairways and tees excellent but overall they are not world class. It was my best round 37 pts so it was my favourite of the 3. Overall it’s what you might expect from a village complex I would give it a memorable 8/10 thanks to all the staff and your golf travel for organising our 2018 Heavy Tour. Cheers Peter
Much better condition and more forgiving than the West course. Nothing spectacular but faster round and most enjoyable. Elevated bar 38 overlooking the course with great staff and buzzing ambiance was cracking for a beer and burger after the round
Very tight narrow fairways, keep the driver in the bag except on the signature 18th. Slowest round I’ve ever played 5hrs 30 mins. 10-15 minutes wait on the tee on most holes. Greens not great because selfish ignorant golfers not repairing pitch marks. I maybe being a little critical as it was my worst round of the 3 ! On the upside really friendly typical pergola style Spanish bar at the club house
Nice course but greens could be better
Best course of the three although most difficult. Greens in good condition
Greens were disappointing with lots of marks and bumps
One of our party described it as 18 tees and 18 greens and messy in between!
Challenging but interesting.
Challenging but interesting.
4 of our group decided to play the west course the only slot they could get was 8am so off they went and when they arrived found that the buggy shack was the only thing open. no refreshments at all as the catering/drinks was closed. when they were out playing eventually at 11-30 the drinks cart arrived.they thought the 400 odd euros was quite expensive to pay but to have no refreshments to 11-30 was disgraceful.however we all enjoyed playing the course the day before and had a very good meal after we finished playing.
same as the south course with the greens to many pitch marks and stud marks
the greens were very cut up and pitch marks all over the greens which tended to alter the putting line. other wise a great course
as for south course
the experience was good but greens need hollow coring as it is obvious by imprints on greens that thatch has accumulated

Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe Frequently Asked Questions
Q – Where's best to eat?
A – The very best thing about La Manga, is that whatever time of year you visit you will always get a good choice of places to eat and drink. My tip; head for the hotel managed restaurants, from which I’d recommend Luigi's Italian up at Las Lomas, and in particular the seafood restaurant La Cala which is located at the beach. Alternatively the steaks at Meat Point, located at The Tennis Club, are excellent.
Q – What else is there to do at La Manga?
A – Sport is the name of the game at La Manga, a game of tennis at the tennis centre, a trip to the incredibly well equipped gym or my favourite, a day on a bike. There are great mountain bike trails within the resort, or hire a road bike and head out to the Portman Hills, complete with the Green Mile climb, after which you will have well and truly earned your beer! Contact Geoff at biking La Manga in the plaza...and tell him Darren sent you!
Q – Where's best to visit during time away from the golf course?
A – Cartagena is only 15 minutes away, and offers a fascinating day out. Founded by the Romans, Cartagena was once Spain's Capital and to this day is one of its premier naval basis. The old town is awash with great little bars and restaurants, and dare we say it perfect for an afternoon bar crawl once you've seen the sights.
Q – Where do I go for nightlife outside of the resort?
A – Head to either the La Manga strip (June-early September only) or Los Alcazares. Both places will keep you entertained until the early (or indeed the late) hours of the morning, with both being busier at weekends than during the week.
