La Manga - Golf Weekend
Citypink is decamping to La Manga Resort, Murcia Spain for some bank holiday golf.
This weekend caters for expert golfers and beginners or even those who have never picked up a club, but want to. The weekend away is on the bank holiday so if you time it right you won't need to take a day off work.
We have a 3 Day beginners course that ensures you are a one step closer to “getting golf ready”. With 2 hours of instruction daily we will cover the building blocks of attaining not only an athletic golf swing but also the fundamentals to building a complete game. The course will also highlight the basic rules and etiquettes of golf. In short this is the perfect way to start into golf. There will be a max 1:7 pro to student ratio.
The 6 hours of tuition costs E240 (payable to hotel when booking room) and includes free use of rental clubs, teaches the fundamentals of golf and is an excellent introduction to the long and short game.
Saturday, May 3rd 11am- 1pm Putting basics, Short Game shots
Sunday, May 4th 9am - 11am Grip, Posture, Pivot and Impact
Monday, May 5th 9am - 11am Advanced Full Swing, Shape of Swing, Ball flight Laws
The La Manga golf facilities are rated as some of the best in the world, for more click here.
THE SOCIAL SIDE Alongside the golfers, citypink tennis club are having 4 hours of tennis coaching a day. We will be working you all hard! Citypink will be organising drinks and dinner on Saturday and Sunday night for all participants. If anyone is travelling alone and wants to share a room, taxi from airport etc, we will help match you up with other players in the same situation. Daytime is left to you for sport and relaxation (read, see you at the pool for a chat).
The registration charge for golfers is £35 and payable now (see below). You will be then given information about our group booking at the hotel in order for you to book your room and place in the citypink golf tuition group. If you have a friend or partner interested in joining, but not playing golf, they must register at La Manga Non-Player.
Accomodation will be at the 5* Hotel Principe Felipe , at the heart of the La Manga Resort. Our rates for room, breakfast (doesnt include your golf tuition):
Double occupancy : 144 Euro per room
Single occupancy : 130 Euro per room
GOLF PACKAGE If you are an experienced golfer you could buy a golf package that involves room and green fees each day, you can choose from any of the courses to play on.
Double Occupancy: 254 Euro per room
Single Occupancy: 189 Euro per room
For those who decide on the day or do not want to book the golf package, the green fees range from 50 Euros to 85 Euros per person dependent on which course you play.
If you have a non-golf/tennis player wanting to join the weekend they are very welcome. There are indoor outdoor pools, golf courses, cycling tours, coastal walks, restaurants et al and spa facilities and Wifi at the resort. They will need to register with us as a non-player and pay £35.
Once you have registered (below) with citypink, we will send to you our group contact details at La Manga, so you can book your room.
FLIGHTS should be booked by you. Easyjet (Gatwick) and Ryanair (stansted) fly to Murcia San Javier, which is the nearest airport just 25km from the resort. Alicante is approximately 100km away. As we are travelling on the bank holiday we suggest booking your flights as early as possible. Easyjet flight 8551 from Gatwick to SJV on May 2nd & flight 8552 SJV to Gatwick May 5th is currently the 'citypink' flight but there is a good choice. Taxi fares from SJV to the resort are approximately E50 and can be shared by those on your flight.
The weekend is a great build up to a summer of sport and we hope to provide you an alumni of golf players to play with. If you are considering coming out alone, or would like to share a room with another let us know, we will help you coordinate with others on the trip.
Hasta la Vista!
