Like most of the proprietary courses in Spain, we do not have a La Manga Golf Club as it is understood in the UK and in many other parts of the world. There are two bodies which function officially and play over the courses. One is the La Manga Residents Golf Association, with over 200 members who play regular monthly competitions. There is also Club Carthago, which mainly consists of local business people in the Cartagena area. There are also many ad hoc groups who organise regular golf amongst themselves throughout the year. Most of the players in these groups are members of the LMC Residents Golf Association.
When the Murcia Matchplay league was formed it came to the attention of the Residents GA and it was agreed to play a team in this league. At that time I was the Competition Secretary of the Association and although I am no longer on the committee, I continue to organise the team which plays in the league.
The La Manga team consists of owners who live at the club for all or most of the year and is chosen where possible from players who compete in our Winter Matchplay group. This consists of about 40 Owners with a handicap of 12.5 or less, playing a round robin match play series between October and March, when the top 8 players go into a final knock out stage.
All players have RFEG handicaps controlled by La Manga Club. LMC organise 3 competitions a week, open to all and we also have Autumn and Summer owners championships, so there are plenty of opportunities to maintain a handicap. The main sponsor of these two championships is Blevin Franks, (International Tax & Wealth Management Consultants) hence the shirts that the team currently use as team colours.
