At La Manga Club, you can really enjoy the Lee Westwood golf experience. English born Lee Westwood stands a full six feet tall and in 2013 will turn 40.
With interests in cinema, snooker, cars, football and Notts Forest, there is no doubt that it is the little white ball that gets the main focus of his attention. Lee’s golfing career goes right back when he was only 13, at which point, gifted with a half set of clubs he took up the sport and very quickly went on to take the Nottinghamshire junior championship, well before he had even heard of La Manga.
