La Manga Club’s South Course heads up the leaderboard

La Manga Club’s South Course has been the biggest improver in a new list of Spain’s top 100 courses jumping 19 places to 37th in the latest rankings released by website . The move up the rankings follows appointment last year of Gary Silcock as director of golf. The par-73 South Course is one of three 18-hole courses at the five-star resort. Under Silcock’s guidance the South Course, which five-times hosted the Spanish Open, underwent a major investment in its facilities and enjoyed a hugely successful year including staging the 2013 Spanish International Amateur Championship

The course will host the 2014 Spanish Seniors International Amateur Championship at the start of February while it will help bring La Manga Club’s winter golfing season to a climax by staging the PGAs of Europe’s 1st La Manga Club International Pro-Am from 7 to 11 March.

Silcock said: “The South Course at La Manga Club is one of the famous and celebrated golfing venues in Europe. Some of the game’s biggest stars have enjoyed treading its fairways over the years and, with continued investment, we are well on the way to restoring its position at the forefront of golf in Spain.”

The South Course’s rise in the latest ‘Top 100’ rankings is not the only good news for La Manga Club with its other two 18-hole layouts, the West Course and North Course, also featuring at 36th and 63rd respectively on the 2014 list.
