Pro-am competitors will get to enjoy the testing North Course as well as two rounds on the renowned South Course – the site of Arnold Palmer’s 1975 Spanish Open win and also where he redesigned the course in 1996.
Pro-am packages for teams of one professional and three amateurs are available from €1,270 per amateur (free for professionals), but golfers can take advantage of an early booking offer of €1,155 when booking before 28th February. The entry fee for amateurs includes:
As well as staging the pro-am, the resort will also host the prestigious IAGTO Trophy from May 21-24, and the 22nd edition of the popular Footballers’ Golf Classic in early June.
Three times the size of Monaco and nestling in an exclusive corner of Murcia in south-east Spain, La Manga Club has been at the forefront of European golf since opening in 1972, with its facilities including three 18-hole courses, a nine-hole academy course and outstanding practice area.
