Professionals & Teams Set to Play Spain’s Best for 2017 Pro-Am2 min read


Posted on: 27th Oct 2016

The 2017 La Manga Club International Pro-Am will take place from 6th to 10th March with 20 teams competing across the leading Spanish resort’s acclaimed North and South courses.

The announcement of the fourth edition of the Pro-Am comes not long after The Príncipe Felipe Hotel 5* being nominated in the third World Golf Awards in the ‘Spain’s Best Golf Hotel’ category – a category that it has won the last two years – and the South Course in the category for ‘Spain’s Best Golf Course’.

The resort continues to undergo exciting development including the recent opening of the new La Manga Club Golf Training Centre, led by PGA of Sweden professional, Thomas Johansson, Anthony McCarthy (PGA of GB&I) and Anders Thelberg (PGA of Norway).

Pro-am competitors will get to enjoy the testing North Course as well as two rounds on the renowned South Course – the site of Arnold Palmer’s 1975 Spanish Open win and also where he redesigned the course in 1996.

Eduardo Ruiz, director of golf at La Manga Club, said: “It gives us great pride that this tournament is celebrating its fourth year at La Manga Club.

“It is a great opportunity for amateur and professional golfers from all over Europe to compete on the resort’s internationally-renowned golf facilities. This year the competition was very close, and we’re hoping to see that same level of excitement from those taking part in 2017.”

Pro-Am packages for teams of one professional and three amateurs are available priced from €1,100 per amateur (free for professionals), but golfers can take advantage of an early booking offer of €1,049 when booking before 15th December. The Pro-Am participation fee for amateurs includes:

  • Four nights’ twin-share accommodation at five-star Hotel La Manga Club Príncipe Felipe (6th – 10th March 2017 inclusive)
  • Buffet breakfast
  • Three pro-am rounds (two rounds on South Course, one round on North Course. 7th, 8th and 9th March 2017)
  • One official practice round (one round on South Course. 6th March 2017)
  • Practice balls
  • Welcome reception (6th March 2017)
  • Light lunch on four tournament days
  • Gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony (9th March 2017)
  • Daily temporary licence from the Murcian Golf Federation
  • Professional prize fund of €20,000 (based on 20 teams competing)

The 2016 edition of the Pro-Am was won by the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Matthew Cort, who secured his first PGAs of Europe Sanctioned Event victory with a wire-to-wire performance at the famous resort.
