West Course
Year Founded: 1971 - Architect: Dave Thomas

This beautifully manicured, tree lined course, is set in the rolling hillside overlooking La Manga Club. Itís breathtaking views, undulating fairways and fast greens make this course particularly exciting course to play. Unlike a lot of golf courses, having played here one feels that every facet of their game will be tested to the full. Especially the par 3 holes which are a collection of probably the best short holes to be found anywhere on one golf course, leaving the par 5ís to make up for the lost shots. Accuracy and good golf course management are very much a premium.
 
South Course
Year Founded: 1971 - Architect: Robert Dean Putman / Remodelled by Arnold Palmer in 1992

The Championship course at La Manga, it is a hard test the main difficulty being the length.

The front nine are particularly tough with two par 3s over 200 metres and some daunting par 4ís which will require some accurate driving between lakes and bunkers, and long irons or fairway woods to the green.

The back nine although shorter, has a number of tight dog-leg holes and special attention to the par 5 18th, with water on both sides of the fairway and a ravine just short of the green totally surrounded by sand, which will provide a particularly stern finish.

The greens in general are big and straightforward, but the player may often find himself with very long putts.
 
North Course
Year Founded: 1971 - Architect: Robert Dean Putman

The North Course at La Manga is a par 71 layout where precision rather than length is the main requirement. Strategic ravines around the course will make laying up a sensible choice for most players most times, and hitting a ball right to left will also be an invaluable help.

Slightly hillier than the South, spectacular views across the resort can be seen from the 4th tee, the highest point on the course.

Beware the short 2nd, only 96 metres long from an elevated tee but with deep, narrow green where the player can easily 3 putt. The greens are not as big as those of the south course, but they are well protected by deep bunkers and with their subtle breaks are assured top test players of all abilities.
