 Eduardo Ruiz is new La Manga Director of Golf

Eduardo Ruiz is looking forward to writing an exciting new chapter in La Manga Club’s prestigious golfing history after being named as the new director of golf at Europe’s premier sports and leisure destination resort in Murcia, south-east Spain.

Ruiz, pictured, has a proven pedigree and growing reputation in the golf resort industry having worked at a number of the leading venues in Spain including Finca Cortesin, La Quinta and, most recently, 1997 Ryder Cup host Valderrama – reguarly rated as the top course in Spain – where he was operations manager.
The Spaniard took up his role at the start of this month (April) and joins a list featuring some of the most famous names in the game to be associated with La Manga Club including South African legend Gary Player (the resort’s first director of golf), the ’King of Golf’ Arnold Palmer (winner of the 1975 Spanish Open and re-designer of its South Course) and the late Severiano Ballesteros – the resort’s touring professional from 1980-85.
A five-time host of the Spanish Open, La Manga Club added to its first-class golf facilities, which include three 18-hole championship courses, by opening a new Leadbetter Golf Academy last autumn – the only one of its kind in mainland Spain – and Ruiz is relishing the opportunity to help lead the award-winning resort into a progressive new era.
Ruiz said: “It is a great honour to have been chosen."
He succeeds Scot Gary Silcock in the post.
