Golf at La Manga Club has moved into top gear with the Spanish resort having improved its extensive five-star facilities further with the addition of a new fleet of Club Car buggies.

With increased green fees and renewed focus on its customer service in 2013, the award-winning venue in Murcia, south-east Spain, has taken delivery of 25 Club Car Precedent i2 buggies, increasing its fleet of golf vehicles to 60 to satisfy the growing demand from members and visitors.

Club Car’s fleet of Precedent buggies has won a series of industry accolades since the first model was launched.  Featuring the Excel™ Electric Drive System, the most advanced electric platform the company has ever built, the Precedent i2 continues to raise the bar in performance, protection, and styling.

Gary Silcock, La Manga Club’s director of golf, said: “Demand for buggies is high across all three of our courses so it is important that we update our fleet on a regular basis.

“Having worked closely with the PGA and European tours, Club Car is one of the most established brands in the golf industry and they have a proven record for delivering an excellent and reliable service.

“Not only will the arrival of the new fleet add to the golfing experience we offer, with buggies now allowed on the fairways, but also assist us in our golf course maintenance programme and is part of our on-going commitment at La Manga Club to delivering a first-class golfing product to our customers on and off the course.”

The luxury resort purchased a new Toro GreensPro 1200 roller at the start of the season to help amateurs experience the same sort of test that the world’s best professionals encounter each week on tour while other improvements include an upgrade of its driving range facilities later in the year.

With facilities including three 18-hole championship courses, a nine-hole academy course and extensive practice facilities, La Manga Club is regarded as one of Europe’s premier sports destinations and the resort is in the middle of a long-term golf investment plan to ensure it maintains its position at the forefront of golf on the continent.
