Golf is probably Real Golf La Manga Club’s most famous attraction and the 3 championship golf courses here are among the very best in Europe and have all hosted many professional and amateur tournaments over the years. With the 3 courses, the maintenance of all 3 is excellent as it allows the management to close each course entirely for extended periods to allow for the best quality work to take place with extended periods of recovery as required.
The Real Golf La Manga Club West course is the newest of the 3 golf courses here at this famous Murcia golf resort and many visiting golfers believe it is the best of the 3 courses.
Its history is quite varied having begun life as a Dave Thomas designed 9-hole layout in the 1980’s and named Atamaría after the nearby village. That moniker did not last too long as it was soon renamed La Princessa.
In 1991 Dave Thomas was recalled to design a second 9-hole course immediately adjacent to La Princessa.
Once the full 18 holes were in play they were still known by different names (Las Sabinas and La Princessa) but eventually the owners saw sense and combined the 2-nines bringing the 18-hole Real Golf La Manga Club West course into existence.
The Real Golf La Manga Club West Course is a short distance from the main part of the resort and you’ll need to jump on the resort shuttle bus to be whisked up to the West course’s small clubhouse, which is tucked away in the hills a couple of kilometres to the west of the main resort complex.
The Real Golf La Manga Club West course is pretty challenging with large elevation changes, tight sloping fairways and many barrancas, particularly on the front nine.
The back nine is more open and is set dramatically in the hills. It reaches its climax at the 18th tee which is perched high on the hillside from where the panoramic views across the resort to the sea beyond are simply sensational.
The wide final fairway is set a hundred metres or so below the tee, so hopefully by now you have got your driver firing to allow you to enjoy a long high drive down to the fairway below. Perhaps the most exciting tee shot in Spanish golf…?!Murcia, Spain Travel Guide
