La Manga Club titles its own event in fifth Winter Series visit
On 31. oktober 2013
The first tournament of the 2014 Winter Series is titled the La Manga Club Championship, and is a tribute to the five-year collaboration between the Danish ECCO Tour and La Manga Club.
– Our fifth anniversary with La Manga Club we have wanted to make extra exiting. Therefore we have increased the prize fund to 110.000 euro, and dedicated the first tournament to La Manga Club, who has been a great partner over the past five years. They have helped us turn the ECCO Tour Winter Series into what it is today, explains ECCO Tour Director, Flemming Astrup.
– We have enjoyed coming here, and we believe that La Manga Club is the perfect venue for our Winter Series this year, but also for the years to come, Astrup says.
Winter Series deserves a spot in everyone’s calendar
In 2014, it is not only the ECCO Tour who visits La Manga Club for a fifth consecutive time. In the field are players, who also will make their fifth appearance at La Manga Club, and who have seen the ECCO Tour Nordic Golf League Winter Series grow into what it is today.
– It’s been a great transition from the first time, we were down here, Christoffer Lange explains.
– Back then the practice facilities and the courses where not all to good, but now La Manga Club seems to be back on track making it a great place to go, when it’s to cold to practice in Denmark. The weather and facilities are perfect for getting ready for the season, and as the field is also getting stronger, you see more and more big names entering the Winter Series, says Lange with reference to players like JB Hansen, Morten Ørum Madsen, Lasse Jensen, Jeppe Huldahl, Thomas Nørret, Mark Haastrup and Lucas Bjerregaard, who all participated in 2013.
– You get to socialize and practice with your friends, compete against good players in good weather and for a lot of money, Christoffer Lange rounds off.
