La Manga has 3 world class golf courses.
La Manga stag weekends are on par with the best of them
The weather is flawless, the sea is clear and the entire weekend is pure sophistication and luxury – oh, and the golf is world class. Not all stag groups are the hard partying-kind – sometimes all you want is a laidback weekend with a few leisurely sports in the day, a couple of drinks in the evening, and a lot of kicking back and relaxing with the guys. If that sounds like exactly what you’re looking for, a La Manga stag weekend might be exactly what you need. Just on the south coast of Spain, a La Manga stag do is the premier way to chill, rejuvenate, and enjoy a casual break with the boys. It offers 1400 acres of sensational sporting stag weekend activity, with 3 championship golf courses, 28 tennis courts, a 2000 sq ft fitness centre, 8 football pitches, and a partridge in a pear tree! Add in spas, bars, restaurants, and 5* accommodation and you’ve got a stag weekend destination that’s the last word in relaxation and sophistication.
Speaking the La Manga lingo
No, we don’t mean Spanish – as La Manga is one of the best golfing destinations in Spain, you’ll need to brush up on the difference between Albatrosses and Eagles before you head off for a sizzling La Manga stag weekend. Take the time to learn a bit of the slang, and you won’t tee off any of the golfers already there, or drive a wedge between you and the regular golfers.
The resort has 300 days of sunshine per year.
- Cuban – when the ball stops just short of the hole - it needs one more revolution.
- Bunker – a sand-covered trap.
- An Adolf – taking two shots in a bunker.
- Sand wedge – used to hit the ball out of the bunker.
- Sandwich – used to fill you after the game.
- Birdie – a hole played one stroke under par.
- Eagle – two strokes under par.
- Albatross – three strokes under par - named for its rarity.
- Bogey – opposite of a birdie.
- A Tony Blair – too much spin on it.
- Afraid of the dark – a ball which just won’t fall in to the hole.
- Dogballs – scoring an 8 on a hole. You can probably work out why for yourself.
- Driver – type of golf club.
- Driver – the guy that rich people employ to get them around.
- 19th hole – the clubhouse bar. Where every good round of golf should end, and the proper rounds begin.
When to visit for a stag weekend
Any time of year is good – even in the depths of winter it’s still around 15 degrees in the sea, so you’re never going to be freezing. After your La Manga stag weekend, you can expect to come home with a topped up tan too, with an incredible 300 days of sunshine a year. The activities on offer around La Manga only add to the holiday hotspot experience, with plenty of outdoor sports to get you making the most of the weather.
Getting to your La Manga stag do
La Manga means "the sandbar of the minor sea".
You can fly in to nearby Murcia or Alicante, but Murica would be our pick for a more convenient location - it’s only a 20 minute drive from La Manga, and depending on how many people the party consists of, you can get a taxi for anywhere between €11 per person and €3 per person. There is public transport, but since the buses only run twice a day – and both times in the afternoon – you might be in for a long wait. We arrange return airport transfers with all our La Manga packages. San Javier Airport, in Murcia, has international flights from places including Belfast, Cork or Dublin in Ireland, and all the London airports. Budget flights from easyJet and Ryanair can be found from Bristol, Glasgow, East Midlands, Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle, and some of the higher priced airlines will do from other cities too.
The benefits of a La Manga stag do are clear – sunny weather and championship quality golf are waiting, along with the opportunity to relax on the beach, enjoy a cold beer in the sun, or get your adrenaline pumping.
