The course that receives the most traffic at La Manga Club is the Sur, a friendlier 6,500m that begins with what feels like an intimidating drive between tall trees from an elevated tee. In fact, once you walk down on to the fairway you realise there is loads of room and the biggest test on this opener is not three putting over the ‘step’ in the green.
You then cross under the road to play a nice par 3 that is just a flick with a wedge – but with four tiers in a green that slopes distinctly left to right, it is a sneaky bogey waiting to happen. The early variety and challenge continue with a par 5 that will infuriate big hitters with a dry ditch across the fairway and then one of the nicest holes of the 54 at LMC. It is a gorgeous par 3 to an ‘infinity’ green seemingly floating in the air with the mountains beyond.
The first of the big carries over a ditch follows on the next but now we are really into the rhythm of the Sur and the rest of the front nine is terrific. The last five are a super finish with the 14th a fiddly test between lake and ditch that will again infuriate longer hitters whose advantage is negated. So, everyone faces an exacting approach to a green with a slim entrance and OB to the left.
But after the lengthy walk back over the road, bombers can slate their frustrations on the fine, long 15th, but the highlight awaits at the 18th, a stellar conclusion demanding you clear the ditch from a spot alongside the first-floor clubhouse windows and try to find the tiered green in front of the hotel.
