Our world is full of wonderful place to visit in the winter months and in this issue of DRIFT we travel from the far north to the extreme south, with a few stops in between. Come along on the journey as we make new friends and maybe find time for a little golf.

The West Course, (newest

The West Course, (newest of the three) with its frequent changes in elevation, offers a different set of challenges. The front nine demand accurate driving to avoid the 'barrancos' (natural storm gullies), while the back nine, up amongst the hills, is more open but nonetheless challenging. The 18th hole, being at one of the highest points on the course offers the most amazing view. From the tees you can see the entire resort, surrounding hillsides and the beautiful blue Mediterranean. The Hotel Principe Felipe is all that you would expect from a 5-star resort. Distinguished Spanish design with elegant décor. 192 rooms fully equipped and designed for maximum comfort. Included is access to saunas, steam rooms, indoor pool and gym at the Wellness Centre, Free Wi-Fi and Free internal transport service to get from place to place within the resort. The Amapola Restaurant, located in the Principe Felipe 5* Hotel, is the ideal place to enjoy delicious and traditional Mediterranean cuisine, all of which is made with seasonal products that are grown locally. Sol y Sombra Restaurant was one of my favorite spots. Located alongside the swimming pool and over looking parts of the golf course, Sol y Sombra is the spot to enjoy snacks or lunch and cool refreshments. 30 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM

The Spa The Wellness Centre at La Manga Club is the perfect place to restore your mind, body and spirit. The spa menu is well thought out and includes massages, facials, ritual scrubs and mani-pedis. I might suggest the C+C BODY treatment. An exquisite ritual which starts with a citrus bead exfoliation, a soufflé of bitter oranges in a treatment mask and a reshaping body massage Closing Thoughts... When you start planning your next golf getaway, make sure La Manga Club is high on the list. The weather is superb, the accommodations are 5-star and the staff are always friendly and helpful. But most importantly, the courses are in excellent condition and offer just the right amount of challenge for golfer of all skill levels. TRAVEL OFTEN . LIVE WELL . 31
