Where2Golf says: 

La Manga Club Resort (South/Sur course): At La Manga, three championship golf courses, a Seve Ballesteros designed Pitch & Putt course and excellent practice facilities come together in one of Spain's most visited and popular golf venues. Benefitting from excellent maintenance, each of the well-crafted layouts will test and hone your game. Located in the centre of the valley, the South course generally hosts La Manga's biggest tournaments, while providing the longest challenge for your game (by several hundred metres). Like the North course there is not too much in the way of penal rough to contend with. However a mix of ponds and small lakes, together with occasional water ditches ensure 15 out of 18 holes pose some kind of watery threat. Out-of-bounds on a few holes and plenty of stylish, strategic bunkering will also keep you on your mettle. Like its companion, the South occupies flattish, landscaped terrain. Within this relatively open environment, a liberal scattering of small palm trees along the good-width fairways gives the course its classic "La Manga" look. The front-nine can play tough, with two par 3s measuring over 200 metres and some daunting par 4s requiring accurate drives between lakes and bunkers. The back-nine, although shorter, has a number of dog-legging holes. Special care should be taken at the 11th and 12th holes, both demand precise club selection for approach shots over water to the greens. The par-5 18th, with water on both sides of the fairway and a ravine just short of a well-protected green, creates a challenging finish.

Did you know?

Of the La Manga courses, the South course has been most frequently used for top level championships, including five Spanish Opens, hosted at the Resort during the 1970s. The South is also where Otto Bucher had a hole in one at the par-3 12th - not surprising? - he was reputedly 99 years old at the time.

Golfer's Comment
If I had to choose one golf course to play before I die, it would be the South Course at La Manga (Lord Deedes, former Editor of the Daily Telegraph).
