Royal Golf La Manga Club – Consists of 3 course, The North course: Palm trees, lakes and natural storm gullies known as ‘barrancos’ are key features of the North Course, which is slightly shorter than the South, with tighter fairways and larger greens. The South course: At almost 6,500 metres from the white tees, it has water hazards on 15 of its 18 holes, wide fairways and a good combination of short and long holes.
The front nine are particularly challenging with two par 3s in excess of 200 metres and some daunting par 4s, which call for accurate driving between lakes and bunkers. The back nine, although shorter, has a number of intriguing dog-leg holes. The West course: with its frequent changes in elevation, offers a different set of challenges. The front nine demand accurate driving to avoid the ‘barrancos’ (natural storm gullies), while the back nine, up amongst the hills, are more open but nonetheless challenging.
