La Manga offers Leadbetter tuition opportunity

David Leadbetter is offering eight amateurs the opportunity of an individual golf lesson at La Manga Club, to coincide with the official opening his new Leadbetter Golf Academy, the centrepiece of La Manga Club’s €1million redevelopment of its extensive teaching and practice centre.

The Spanish resort is running a four-night luxury all-inclusive tuition break, including a two-hour clinic with Leadbetter, for €2,500 on a first come, first served basis. The group will receive 20 hours’ expert tuition, including an exclusive session with Leadbetter.

In addition to one-to one coaching from Leadbetter and having the chance to benefit from his extensive golf knowledge, guests will also enjoy full use of the academy’s new facilities during a series of daily sessions as well as a daily round of golf on one of the resort’s three championship courses.

Supervised by La Manga Club’s expert team of professionals led by the resort’s academy director Laurence Brotheridge, students will receive tuition in all aspects of the game, with swing analysis using the latest Trackman, SAM PuttLab and K-VEST technology.

Accommodation will be provided in La Manga Club’s luxury Hotel Principe Felipe with breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, including a fine-dining experience and a selection of specially-selected wines. There is also access to the resort’s luxury spa featuring a fully-equipped fitness centre, indoor pool, saunas and steam rooms.
