Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, the par 72 international championship Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to full USGA specifications and the quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer. It presents unforgettable views and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.

Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, streams and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the 'desert springs' and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.

Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling the further your shot is off the fairway so the course is both demanding and exhilarating, providing a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.

The back nine was designed by Jack Nicklaus and has wide fairways. Again the greens are protected by strategic bunkers. Nicklaus's own "Amen Corner" deserves a special mention as holes 13, 14, & 15 are surrounded by a spectacular lake making these three holes a real challenge. 

Excellent practice facilities include driving range, putting green and chipping green.

La Manga Resort is home to three 18-hole golf courses, each with its own particular style:

The North Course, designed by world-renowned golf course architect Robert Dean Putman.  Palm trees, lakes and natural storm gullies known as 'barrancos' are key features of the North Course, which is slightly shorter than the South, with tighter fairways and larger greens.

The South Course, also designed by Putman and later remodelled by Arnold Palmer.  At almost 6,500 metres from the white tees, it has water hazards on 15 of its 18 holes, wide fairways and a good combination of short and long holes. The front nine is particularly challenging with two par 3s in excess of 200 metres and some daunting par 4s, which call for accurate driving between lakes and bunkers. The back nine, although shorter, has a number of intriguing dog-leg holes.

The West Course, designed by Dave Thomas.  The West Course, with its frequent changes in elevation, offers a different set of challenges. The front nine demand accurate driving to avoid the 'barrancos' (natural storm gullies), while the back nine, up amongst the hills, are more open but nonetheless challenging.  The West Course has recently been included in the Top 100 best courses in Europe and all three courses included among the 40 best in Spain.

Last, but by no means least, the 18-hole pitch & putt course was designed by the legendary five-time major winning golfer, Severiano Ballesteros.  The Pitch & Putt is great for sharpening your short game.  The par 3s are particularly well designed, with excellent greens for putting and water obstacles.  An enjoyable round in a beautifully landscaped setting amongst the palm trees.
