YOUR GOLF HOLIDAYS IN MALLORCA
Golf holidays in Mallorca are growing in popularity as the golfing world slowly realises that this island has it all, and flying 6 hours long haul for sunshine and greens is plain silly when you can pop across the Mediterranean and get all that and more. As such Mallorca has become an undisputed, high-end golfing destination.
There are 23 golf clubs in Mallorca, 20 open to visitors, 14 in the south, four in the northeast and 2 in the north, all under the auspices of the amateur golfing authority of the Balearic islands: La Federación Balear de Golf. Several of the largest greens are located within luxury golf resorts, allowing for a fully inclusive, no driving, golfing experience. These include hotels Son Quint, Son Vida and Son Muntaner near Palma, Son Antem near Llucmayor and Pula in Son Servera in the east of the island. There are two however, which are consistently voted the best golf courses in Mallorca; Alcanada Golf in Alcudia and Son Gual on the Palma to Manacor road.
Mallorca Golf Season
Though you can play golf at practically any time of year on the island, the best seasons are Spring and Autumn. Summer may be too hot and Winter, though mild, is changeable. It is worth noting too that in Autumn the grass can seem a bit dry, and this is the main challenge, as the Summers on the island are tremendously hot, the greens are hard to keep green.
