Golf Courses at Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe

South Course

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.

At just over 7100 yards, the course certainly provides the sternest test of golf from the three courses, and lives up to its championship status. Whilst requiring some solid hitting, golfers should beware of the countless water hazards and bunkering throughout the course. The front nine is the tougher, and contains two particularly challenging par 3s, both over 220 yards, as well as a 6th hole containing a blind tee shot onto a expansive and downhill fairway. However, there are still birdie chances on these long holes. The back nine, although less difficult, has many dog-legged holes and is home to one of the largest sand traps in Spain, running almost the whole length on the right hand side fairway on the par four 14th. Avoiding strategically positioned water hazards and bunkers is crucial around this par-73 cracker.

STATS 

Par: 73

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

TEES

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.

North Course

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.

STATS 

Par: 71

Designed by: Robert Dean Putman

Opened for play: 1971

Did you know? The North course was completely refurbished in 2001

TEES

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.

West Course

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.

STATS 

Par: 72

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’.

TEES

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.

Practice Facilities

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.

At The Clubhouse

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. By the West Course, is La Princesa Restaurant. It serves typical Spanish cuisine with a great choice of wine and lovely views of the course and surrounding pine woodland. Also open all year round, for breakfast and lunch.

Other Information

The courses at Real Golf La Manga Club are always cared for, allowing the holes to be in optimum condition. The resort also benefits from an efficient shuttle bus service. It is no wonder that La Manga has won many awards, such as Europe’s and Spain’s Best Golf Resort in the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

However, while the golf at Real golf La Manga Club is certainly the heart and soul of the club, Real Golf La Manga Club also offers plenty of other sport facilities. This includes tennis courts as well as football, cricket and rugby pitches. A junior club is also available- an ideal place for your children to have fun in a friendly, secure environment while you enjoy the great variety of courses La Manga has to offer.

Real Golf La Manga Club's accommodation is also first class. The luxurious Hotel Principe Felipe offers breathtaking views of Real Golf La Manga Club's courses, pools and gardens. There are also plenty of apartments nearby in Las Lomas village if you prefer greater space and independence. 

The resort has a comprehensive golf academy, and also runs regular competitions that guests can enter.

NB - Please check golf club dress code before travel.

Great service this was year 7 of booking La Manga
What a test of golf for all. You'll need to add more clubs for the up hill shots as the green eat the ball when they land. Par 3's what a variety of lengths. The 18th what a great hole to finish on.

North Course

My caddy tip: "Add one club for the up hill shots and take full swings as the greens are unbelievably receptive."

Stableford score: 36

My caddy tip: "Very long, the 4th, 11th, 14th, 16th, 18th fantastic holes. Add a club to your calculations. "

My caddy tip: "Be prepared for a a test of golf that you haven't come across ever before. It's narrow, it's demanding, the green a re significantly smaller than the two other courses. Take a camera for the 18th and if you get your drive past the bunker on the left hand side your a big boy!"

Superb long weekend
We visited La Manga for a second year running, having had a superb long weekend playing golf in August 2013. The hotel occupies a prime position within the resort and the convenience of only a short walk to the golf courses is a big advantage. For those wanting to venture further afield, there are plenty of other options within an hour’s drive. The hotel has done an excellent job in retaining a clean and relatively high-end ambiance, both in terms of the restaurant / bar areas, in addition to the spacious bedrooms. The quality of the courses is a major attraction for our group of golf enthusiasts and there is a good balance of challenging and forgiving holes across all of the courses. Certainly the North course is a little more forgiving however that didn’t detract from its excellent condition. The ongoing re-design works on the 17th hole of the North course was the only negative feature and the shortened driving range did not allow for practising the longer clubs in the bag. However that is a very minor criticism and shouldn’t detract from the quality of the courses, the staff and the hotel. I’m sure we will visit again.

West Course (Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe)

More difficult terrain but still very enjoyable. Followed 3 ladies who I believe found the course very difficult, we were held on 12 tee's and not ever called through, needed a course marshal. Why are the buggy rental costs so expensive. Hope the greens get a rest, they need to recover from heavy use. It is evident that players spend a relatively long time on the greens.

West Course (Hotel La Manga Club - Principe Felipe)

The most difficult course of the three with very challenging left and right doglegs. Fairways needed to be landed on otherwise the result was usually a lost ball in the surrounding countryside. Enjoyed this course the most and if I get the opportunity to return I would play it twice. Some of the 'next tee' sign positions need improving for golfers on their first visit.

This course was hard particularly playing it for the first time and not knowing the many peculiarities that make it special. This is certainly not for the faint hearted,the view from the 18th tee is spectacular and goes some way to ease the challenging drive ahead of you.

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

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

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.

Everything was of a good standard. Staff were very friendly and the local restaurants were of excellent quality.

North Course

My caddy tip: "Think your way around the course and around the greens be positive with your chipping. outside the fringe clings to the club.It is a good holiday course. We played off the yellow tees and a lot of the holes you can play off with a 3 wood. The time we played the course was very busy so have patience.."

Stableford score: 30

South Course

My caddy tip: "Again a good holiday course. My favourite holes were the par threes. Some difficult holes and would suggest anybody of my standard plays up to the hazards and not try to get over them with their first or second shots. The greens are difficult to read. Again have patience as the courses were very busy."

Great service this was year 7 of booking La Manga
What a test of golf for all. You'll need to add more clubs for the up hill shots as the green eat the ball when they land. Par 3's what a variety of lengths. The 18th what a great hole to finish on.

My caddy tip: "Be prepared for a a test of golf that you haven't come across ever before. It's narrow, it's demanding, the green a re significantly smaller than the two other courses. Take a camera for the 18th and if you get your drive past the bunker on the left hand side your a big boy!"

Superb long weekend
We visited La Manga for a second year running, having had a superb long weekend playing golf in August 2013. The hotel occupies a prime position within the resort and the convenience of only a short walk to the golf courses is a big advantage. For those wanting to venture further afield, there are plenty of other options within an hour’s drive. The hotel has done an excellent job in retaining a clean and relatively high-end ambiance, both in terms of the restaurant / bar areas, in addition to the spacious bedrooms. The quality of the courses is a major attraction for our group of golf enthusiasts and there is a good balance of challenging and forgiving holes across all of the courses. Certainly the North course is a little more forgiving however that didn’t detract from its excellent condition. The ongoing re-design works on the 17th hole of the North course was the only negative feature and the shortened driving range did not allow for practising the longer clubs in the bag. However that is a very minor criticism and shouldn’t detract from the quality of the courses, the staff and the hotel. I’m sure we will visit again.

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.
