For more than 40 years, La Manga Club has led the way as Europe’s premier sports and leisure destination and golfers can enjoy five-star luxury at an eye-catching price at the Spanish resort this winter by competing in the popular Murcia Golf Open.
Lovers of the game can banish their winter blues and head for the sun by taking part in the 13th staging of the event from December 3-7, with packages starting from only €375 (approx £325) per person for a four-night stay including three rounds of golf.
Competition in the 36-hole Stableford tournament – which will be held over La Manga Club’s North and South courses – is expected to be as fierce as ever across the different handicap categories for men and women, with a selection of luxury golf and leisure breaks and golfing equipment on offer to be won.
Tournament packages feature four nights’ accommodation, including breakfast and a welcome pack; a cocktail reception; a gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony, and are available from just €450 (£390 approx) per person in the five-star Hotel La Manga Club Principe Felipe, or only €375 per person in the fully-serviced four-star Las Lomas apartments.
All tournament guests will receive a 25 per cent discount on any spa treatments booked.
Prices, which are based on two people sharing a room, include tournament entry for golfers, along with a green fee for practice day, 230 range balls and on-course refreshments during the competition.
Free Wi-Fi and VAT are also included and, what’s more, all tournament guests will receive a 25 per cent discount on any spa treatments booked; savings of 15 per cent when eating at any of the resort’s Amapola, Asia, Luigi’s and La Bodega restaurants and complimentary access to Spa La Manga Club’s fitness centre, indoor pool, saunas and steam rooms.
La Manga Club is also hosting the 11th Murcia Seniors’ Tennis Open from December 1-6, to run alongside the golf event.
The two competitions will bring to an end another momentous year for the award-winning venue which has seen it continue to set the benchmark for sports and leisure destinations in Europe.
Among its many highlights in 2013, La Manga Club hosted the Spanish Amateur International Golf Championship, staged the prestigious Babolat Tennis Cup for the first time in its history, received four nominations at the World Travel Awards and was voted Spain’s best golf resort by UK readers of Today’s Golfer magazine for the second year running.
La Manga Club is the overseas training base of the Lawn Tennis Association until 2016 and is set to hit the headlines again in 2014 when it stages the Spanish Senior Amateur Golf Championship in February.
The resort boasts unrivalled facilities as a sport and leisure venue including three 18-hole championship golf courses, a 28-court tennis centre and a 2,000sqm spa and fitness centre. It also offers the choice of a five-star hotel, four-star serviced apartments and townhouses, more than 20 bars and restaurants and great fun for children.
