The popular La Manga Club International Pro-Am will return for its third edition from 15-17 February in 2016 as up to 30 teams will contest a prize-fund of €20,000*.

The Pro-Am announcement comes at the end of an outstanding year for Spain’s La Manga Club, As well as the opening of a new Leadbetter Golf Academy – the only one of its kind in the country – the resort was named ‘Best Golf Hotel in Spain’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards for the second year in a row, voted ‘Spain’s Best Golf Resort’ at the 2015 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards for the fourth year running and earned a place in Golf World’s benchmark ‘Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe 2015/16’ rankings.
