The five-star La Manga Club has made a flying start to 2014 and added to its extensive list of honours by completing an unprecedented hat-trick and being named as the best golf resort in Spain for the third successive year.
The luxury venue was once again the overwhelming choice of the readers of leading UK magazine Today’s Golfer to win the top consumer travel award, receiving nearly 50 per cent of all votes cast.
La Manga Club amassed an impressive 48 per cent of the vote to comfortably beat off competition from its rivals and confirm its reputation as Spain’s flagship resort, and Europe’s premier sports and leisure destination.
Gary Silcock, La Manga Club’s director of golf, said: “To be recognised as Spain’s top golf resort for the third year running is an amazing achievement and a great honour.
“The vote results demonstrate the high regard that La Manga Club continues to be held in by UK golfers. It is a golf and sporting institution that is loved all over Europe and our commitment to excellence is shown by the wealth of facilities that are available for guests to enjoy.
“The last 12 months have been very successful and there are a number of exciting additions to our golf product in 2014 which will help to further cement the position of the resort as the continent’s leading sports and leisure destination.”
Featuring outstanding facilities including three 18-hole championship golf courses – all of which were named in the latest list of the Top 100 Courses in Spain – and an array of other five-star sports and leisure amenities and numerous bars and restaurants, La Manga Club has established itself as a firm favourite with visiting golfers since opening in 1972 and has enjoyed another memorable year.
