The La Manga Golf South Course was originally designed by Robert Putman in 1971 and subsequently remodelled by Arnold Palmer in 1992, it was completely refurbished in 2004. The course runs through the centre of the valley where the wide fairways are lined with palm trees and water hazards come into play on 15 out of the 18 holes.
The two par 3´s on the front nine measure over 200 metres each and some of the long par 4´s will require long irons into the green avoiding the lakes and bunkers.
The back nine is a little shorter but brings in a few dog-leg holes and the shots into the greens on 11 and 12 both cross water demanding accurate club selection.
The par 5, 18th, with water on both sides of the fairway and a ravine just short of a well-protected green will demand concentration right to the end.
