One of the best equipped golf academies in Europe, La Manga Club Academy of Golf offers you the ideal combination of superb practice facilities, high-tech stroke analysis and, most importantly, a friendly and experienced team of pros, plus, of course, the mild and sunny Costa Calida weather!
La Manga Club Academy of Golf caters for all levels of ability, from beginner through to intermediate and advanced. PGA-qualified golf professionals guide participants through five mornings of instruction, and their enthusiasm and friendliness make each lesson relaxed, fun and informative. Our five-day Academy courses will help you improve every aspect of your game, from basic skills, tips and match play tactics to golf etiquette and selecting equipment.
The Academy takes place Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Private lessons are available from 12:00 noon. Advance reservations are essential.
La Manga Club's highly successful Academy of Golf has just been completely refurbished, extended and re-equipped with the very latest computerised, digital coaching technology, designed not only to meet golfers' sporting needs but also to provide a lively social hub for the Academy.
The new Academy building features its own Academy Reception, where specialist staff will be able to provide advice, and a large lounge, where you can meet up, talk, have a drink or simply watch the latest tour action on TV in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Also new are two indoor teaching studios with computer analysis, 21 outdoor tees for the exclusive use of La Manga Academy students (apart from the main, 60-bay driving range) and a Ping Fitting Centre where clients will receive expert assessment on their golfing equipment needs.
La Manga Club Academy of Golf has recently been re-equipped with V1, the world's most advanced computerised video analysis system. Under the expert guidance of their teaching professionals, V1 analysis will give you a new insight into your game and help you correct those irritating faults. Amongst other features, the V1 digital swing analysis system offers you:
Unlike most earlier systems, your swing will be filmed by not one but two cameras (one facing, the other down the line), providing immediate feedback from all angles. The superb quality of the digital reproduction enables the pro to identify even the very slightest deviation from the perfect. The system also allows the flight of the ball to be recorded, which means that you can see not just the movement of the swing but also, more importantly, the result of your action on the ball.
Whatever the technology, at the end of the day it is the quality and dedication of the coaching staff that will make the difference to your game. At La Manga Club, their PGA-qualified pros will share with you their first-hand knowledge, experience and advice and inspire you with their enthusiasm so that you will not only learn a lot, but also have a great time doing so.
There are never more than six students to one professional, ensuring personal attention no matter how much or how little golfing experience you have.
