M.G. Orender to help Spanish club

M. G. Orender, one of the best-known people in U.S. golf, is going to help one of Spain’s most luxurious golf resorts get back on its financial feet.

The former president of the PGA of America (and current president of Hampton Golf) has joined the board of directors of La Manga Club, a 1,400-acre resort community outside Cartagena that was forced to declare for bankruptcy protection in 2008. Orender’s role will be to “advise us in the process of transforming our resort into one of the Europe’s best golf destinations,” said a club official who believes that the appointment “shows our commitment and dedication to achieving the repositioning of La Manga Club resort in a short and medium term.”

La Manga, which has three 18-hole courses, is owned by Med Group, a Barcelona-based firm that owns three other Spanish golf properties and aims to build three others.
