The award-winning sports and leisure destination in Murcia, south-east Spain, is one of an elite group of global resorts to have been selected by the respected Top 100 Golf Courses website to feature in its new ‘Top 100 Golf Resorts of the World’ section.

Andy Newmarch, of Top 100 Golf Courses, said: “La Manga Club is probably Europe’s most illustrious golf resort, and for good reason.
“The three 18-hole courses are varied, both in terms of challenge and style – while there’s also an 18-hole pitch and putt course designed by Seve Ballesteros, coupled with a world-class practice centre.
“The non-golf facilities are unrivalled, and the accommodation is exceptional in both quality and diversity. Has the original 1970s dream to build the best sports holiday facility in Europe been realised? Absolutely!”
The new accolade is the latest honour to be bestowed on La Manga Club in what has been a momentous year for the resort. Other awards include receiving a Golf Digest ‘Editors’ Choice Award for Best International Resorts 2017′ and being voted ‘Spain’s Best Golf Resort’ by readers of the UK magazine Today’s Golfer for the sixth year in a row – while La Manga Club continues to invest in its golf, sports and leisure facilities.

Featuring three 18-hole golf courses, a nine-hole academy course and outstanding practice facilities, La Manga Club has enjoyed a rich golfing history over the last 45 years, with golfing legends Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Seve Ballesteros all figuring prominently in its past.
