If you love golf and getting away to the sunshine, the La Manga Club destination sports resort in Spain has bolstered its offering by launching a range of new Leadbetter Golf Academy ‘stay, play and learn’ packages.
The Leadbetter Golf Academy – the only such facility on the Spanish mainland – opened earlier this year and overseas visitors can now pre-book a choice of two packages, both combining a stay at the five-star Hotel La Manga Club Principe Felipe with a five-star academy experience and golf on one of the resort’s three championship golf courses.
The Golf Mini-Break starts from €750 (£625 approx) per person and includes four nights’ accommodation and nine hours’ of tuition over three days, while the seven-night Total Golf Experience package includes 12 hours’ tuition across four days’ and starts from €995 (£829 approx) per person.
Both packages also include two rounds of golf per person, daily buffet breakfast and complimentary access to the fitness centre, indoor pool and steam rooms at Spa La Manga Club.
Special golf tuition packages for children start from €99 (£83 approx) for a four-hour under-nine academy with further options for youngsters in the under-15 and under-17 age groups.
Three times the size of Monaco, La Manga Club’s sports and leisure facilities include three 18-hole championship courses – the North, West and much-revered South – helping establish itself as a firm favourite with European golfers since opening in 1972.
You’ll probably already know that it’s widely regarded as Spain’s flagship resort, and it’s also been voted ‘Best Golf Resort in Spain’ by UK readers of Today’s Golfer magazine for the last three years.
In addition to golf, La Manga Club has a range of other top facilities, including a 28-court tennis centre and a 2,000sqm spa and fitness centre. It offers the choice of a five-star hotel, four-star serviced apartments and townhouses, and more than 20 bars and restaurants.
