La Manga has three 18-hole golf courses, each with there own individual style.
The North Course was designed by the world-renowned golf course architect Robert Dean Putman. The South Course was also designed by Dean Putman but later remodeled by Arnold Palmer and the West Course, designed by Dave Thomas
The resort also has a 18-hole pitch & putt golf course which was designed by the legendary five-time major winning golfer; Severiano Ballesteros.
The West Course is a par-72. It was opened in 1990 and is the newest of the three 18-hole golf courses. It has recently been added to the list of top 100 best courses in Europe. All three La Manga courses are included in the top 40 courses in Spain.
The West Course offers different sets of challenges. The front nine holes require accurate driving to avoid the 'barrancos' (natural storm gullies), while the back nine holes, which are located on the hillside, are more open but nonetheless challenging
This is a famous course which has hosted many major professional tournaments that include several Spanish Opens and PGA Championships for both men and women
The course is nearly 6,500 meters from the white tees, with water hazards on 15 and 18 holes. The course has wide fairways with a good mix of short and long holes.
The front nine are challenging with two par 3s more than 200 meters in length and some daunting par 4s, which require accurate driving between lakes and bunkers. The back nine is shorter with a number of intriguing dog-leg holes.
Lakes, palm trees and the natural storm gullies known as the 'barrancos' are the main features of the North Course. This course is slightly shorter than the South Course, with tighter fairways and larger putting greens.
La Manga golf course is located in Los Belones, Murcia. It is 29 miles (25 minutes) from Murcia-San Javier Airport and 78 miles from Alicante airport
