LA MANGA CLUB HOPES STARS ALIGN FOR ‘BEST IN SPAIN’ TITLE NUMBER NINE
Popular with golfers of all ages, there are few golf travel venues in the world more famous than Spain’s iconic La Manga Club and the resort is in contention for further international acclaim – including being named as Spain’s best golf resort for a remarkable ninth year running.
The leading sports and leisure destination in Murcia is one of nine venues that have been nominated for the top accolade at the 2020 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards.
La Manga Club has won the top honour in Spain every year since it was introduced, and the resort is hoping to double up at this year’s awards with its renowned South Course – a five-time venue of the Spanish Open – one of eight layouts shortlisted for the title of Spain’s best golf course.
Voted for annually by readers of the UK’s best-selling golf magazine and visitors to its website, the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards recognise the most prestigious golf destinations in the UK and Europe, and this year’s nominees feature some of Spain’s most famous courses including Valderrama, Finca Cortesin and Abama.
Voting for the awards is open until Saturday November 30 and votes can be cast by going to www.todaysgolfer.co.uk/travel-awards/
Three times the size of Monaco, La Manga Club – named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ at the World Golf Awards in 2017 and 2018 – has been a favourite destination of golfers worldwide for the last five decades.
Its extensive facilities include three 18-hole golf courses, a nine-hole, par-47 academy course and a first-class golf training centre, while the resort will celebrate a new honour next April when it hosts amateur golf’s prestigious 2020 Bonallack and Patsy Hankins Trophies for the first time in its illustrious history.
As well as golf, the players will also have the chance to experience the resort’s extensive other facilities including a 28-court tennis centre, a 2,000sqm Wellness Centre, a choice of a five-star hotel, four-star serviced apartments and townhouses and more than 15 bars and restaurants.
