MURCIA’S La Manga golf club has been handed one of Spain’s most prestigious golfing awards.la-manga

The Royal Spanish Golf Federation gifted the world-famous resort with the ‘Merit in Golf’ award in recognition of its contribution to the sport in Spain, Europe and worldwide.

Built more than four decades ago, the club has hosted the Spanish Open five times and has become a recognised course among the world’s elite sportsmen.

Jose Asenjo, general manager of La Manga Club, said: “It is a great honour for us to be given this honour.

“The award is recognition for all the hard work and effort that has been made over the last four decades to make La Manga Club the favourite destination for golfers in Spain and Europe.”

The club was most recently named as Spain’s best golf hotel at the World Golf Awards for the second year running and was voted the best golf resort in Spain by Today’s Golfer readers for the fifth successive year.

The 1,400 acre resort features three 18-hole courses, a nine-hole academy course and a recently opened Leadbetter Golf Academy – the only one in mainland Spain.
