La Manga West
The La Manga Resort is one of the best-known golf resorts in the south of Spain due to its fantastic golf courses and stunning scenery. The La Manga West has been awarded with the title of one of the Top 100 Golf Courses in Europe; with a beautiful landscape, perfectly manicured greens and an invigorating challenge, this hardly comes as a surprise. Widely regarded as one of the best golf courses in Murcia, the La Manga West is a must-play golf course on your next golf holiday in Spain.
The La Manga West is known for the excellent test of golf it bears, with several unique par 3s to ensure players have a fantastic round of golf. This spectacular golf course is characterised by its undulating fairways and its fast greens. Golfers will certainly be met with a challenge here in the shape of blind spots and strategically placed hazards. Players will be kept on their toes throughout the golf course with regular changes in elevation that makes accuracy difficult.
Players can enjoy a varied round of golf at the La Manga West with the front nine and the back nine contrasting in difficulty and their characteristics. The front nine are generally considered to be more challenging than the back nine due to their tight greens that demand accuracy in drives in order to avoid the ‘barrancos’. In contrast, the back nine are located in an elevated position in the hills with open greens. Despite the golf course measuring to a mere 5,714 metres from the white tees, it is without a doubt a challenging golf course that is not to be missed on your next golf holiday in Murcia.

If the invigorating challenge and an opportunity for an unforgettable round of golf does not draw golfers to the La Manga West, then the stunning landscapes surely will. The greens here are consistently kept in immaculate condition all throughout the year. This beautifully manicured tree-lined course is set in the rolling hillside overlooking La Manga Club, offering stunning sweeping views throughout.
A signature hole on the golf course includes the concluding 18th hole, set in an elevated position. The steep climb up to the green is made worth it at this hole and golfers will find the tee located on top of a small mountain elevated just above the fairway. Here, players can enjoy the most spectacular views across the entire golf course, spanning right across the entire La Manga Resort, the neighbouring countryside and sea.
