La Manga South Course
La Manga South Course is the Championship course at La Manga Club and probably one of the fairest tests of golf one can find. At 6,499 meters from the White Tees, whilst being accepted as a top-caliber championship course, also provides a thorough test both for the scratch player and right across the handicap range.
Located in the centre of the valley, with wide palm-fringed fairways and water hazards that come into play on 15 of the 18 holes, the South Course holds few hidden dangers. The many strategically positioned water hazards and bunkers will certainly punish any wayward shots.
The front nine are particularly tough, with two par 3's over 200 meters and some daunting par 4's which will demand accurate driving between lakes and bunkers, requiring long irons or fairway woods to the green. The back nine, although shorter, has a number of intriguing dog-leg holes. Special attention should be given to both the 11th and 12th holes, which demand precise club selection to greens across water.
