Discovering golf in Mallorca

Where should I stay for Mallorca golf holidays?

There are 20 golf courses in Mallorca, scattered around the island. Most are located close to the coast, and the island is small enough that you can easily visit every course during golf holidays in Mallorca if you really want to! However, you'll find two areas with a few courses clustered close together: the western part of the island, near the capital of Palma, and the area around Cala Rajada on the east coast. You may want to keep that in mind when choosing your holiday lettings in Mallorca.

What kind of golf courses will I find in Mallorca?

As the island's golf courses are not as famous as others in Spain, golf courses in Mallorca are ideal if you want to avoid crowds. That being said, two of the golf courses in Mallorca rank in the top 100 golf courses in Europe. You'll generally find a good mix of courses. The more challenging are located in Mallorca's natural areas, and they feature a clever use of water features and interesting holes. As always, there are driving ranges and putting areas, too, so if you're enjoying family holidays in Mallorca, you'll be able to keep the kids happy, too.

The best golf courses in Mallorca

Alcanada

Considered by many to be the best golf course in Mallorca, Alcana is located in Alcúdia. It's quite far from cities like Palma, but it should be at the top of your list for Mallorca golf holidays. It's named after a tiny offshore island, and you'll enjoy plenty of views of that little isle as you play these 18 holes. This 7,107-yard, par 72 course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr and has a good variety of holes. The location is quite hilly, which means you'll have natural obstacles to tackle. The holes are surrounded by pine trees and olive groves, giving the course an inescapable Mediterranean charm.

Son Gual

To the north of Palma, Son Gual is another contender for the title of best golf course in Mallorca. It's close enough to the capital that you really can't miss it on your golf trip to Mallorca. Thomas Himmel is the architect behind this par 72 course, with a length of 7,240 yards. His fiendish design features a number of challenging water hazards and bunkers, forcing golfers to think carefully before they tee off.

Son Vida

This is Mallorca's oldest golf course, first opened in 1950. A 2001 renovation has brought it into the modern age, and it remains a beloved spot for golfers. This 6,125-yard, par 71 course is known for the trees that frame its narrow fairways. It's located very close to Palma. In fact, it's close enough that as you play the 6th hole, you'll enjoy a dramatic view of the city's cathedral. Watch out for the tricky water hazards on the 16th and 18th holes.

Son Muntaner

This course is part of the Arabella Golf complex, along with Son Vida. It's also near Palma, so if you're a keen golfer, you might want to rent a finca in Mallorca nearby and enjoy both courses. 7,000 yards long, this course demands long play. It's a par 72 course designed by Kurt Rossknecht. Some of the holes are extremely challenging, particularly the 15th. Even experienced golfers will struggle with this long, par 5 uphill hole.

FAQs: Golf holidays in Majorca

What's the dress code for golf courses in Mallorca?

Golf courses in Mallorca have the same dress code that is standard across Spain. Jeans and t-shirts are forbidden. Polo shirts with a collar are the most common type of shirt, but they cannot have any kind of slogan or non-golfing logo. Shirts must be tucked in, and soft-spiked golf shoes should be worn. Beach shorts, sports shorts and cargo shorts are not acceptable, but tailored shorts are fine. You will find that most golfers wear polo shirts and smart shorts.

Do I need an official handicap to play golf in Mallorca?

In theory, yes. Most clubs require an official handicap certificate before they will let you play. However, this is one of those cases where theory and practice can be rather different. Many golfers report that they have been able to play at Mallorcan courses without a handicap certificate. If you have one, make sure you bring it, just to be on the safe side.

Are there any golf courses in Mallorca that are suitable for kids?

If you want to initiate your children into the world of golf, you'll find a few different options in Mallorca. Golf Pollença is a 9-hole course that is very welcoming to youngsters, while Vall d'Or organises special children's sessions at its academy. You'll also find a couple of possibilities close to the famous courses of Son Vida and Son Muntaner: Son Quint offers a training course that's great for enthusiastic youngsters, and if you prefer something a little less formal, there's always the Palma Pitch and Putt!
