The Balearic Islands has long been a popular holiday destination for Brits and there’s no surprise why. Beautiful beaches, delicious local cuisine and a generous climate make Majorca a perfect choice for a Spain golf trip too.

With a wide array of great golf courses to choose from, towns with a bustling nightlife and high-quality resorts, Majorca should not be sniffed at for your next golf break. You might be wondering what are the best golf courses in Majorca? So we’ve put together a list of the very best across Majorca for you to choose from…

Alcanada Golf Club

On the Northern Tip of the Island, Alcanada offers splendid views of the Mediterranean running up into the rolling hills.

The layout varies hugely crossing valleys and ravines in the process as well as many elevated tee shots and a flatter part of the course closer to the sea. The scintillating Robert Trent Jones Jr design is a stern but enjoyable test and well worth the journey to the Northern region of Mallorca.

Golf Son Muntaner

This course is one of three top-class layouts at the Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel 5* in Palma. A relatively new course, built in 2001, it’s a whopper measuring over 7,000 yards from the back sticks.

Two loops of nine holes’ wind over rolling terrain. Conditioned as recently as 2016 where it was completely regrassed, the fairways are surprisingly lush for a Mediterranean layout making Son Muntaner an enjoyable round.

Real Golf Bendinat

Designed by Martin Hawtree in a way that captivates yet challenges golfers, Real Golf Bendinat is one of Majorca’s finest layouts. Nestled in an extensive wooded valley, scenic views of the mountains can be enjoyed as you move throughout the course. Its gently sloping terrain makes it an attractive and fun golf course for golfers of all abilities. There is a good range of holes that are well defined by trees from the tee and the green protected by bunkers and lakes. Remember good strategy is key to achieving a good score here.

T Golf Palma

This delightfully tranquil spot is surprisingly a very short drive away from the lively Palma city centre. Crafted by Nicklaus’ designs company, the layout is newly built only in 2006. As a result, it still needs time to mature with Bermuda grass from tee to green however the future is most certainly bright.

The track is varied with the highlight being two vast lakes that ominously feature on the 7th, 8th, 15th, and 16th holes.

Golf Son Gual Majorca

This is the one real “must play” in Majorca and is a genuine contender recently breaking into the Top 10 best golf courses in Spain according to Top 100 Golf Courses.

The dramatic landscape has been expertly moulded by three-time German Amateur Champion, Thomas Himmel, into a no-doubt future European Tour venue. Enjoy colourful wildflowers, vineyards on-course, and spectacular views whilst playing a layout with one of the most dramatic finishes in Europe.

Pula Golf Course

Opened in 1995, Pula spent three years in 2004 being remodelled by none other than Spanish golfing legend Jose Maria Olazabal. Ironically, Ollie claimed his 23rd European Tour title at the 2005 Majorcan Classic, held annually at Pula.

Incredibly, the European Tour event was still held there during remedial work which is a testament to the strength of greenkeeping, still evident today.

Golf Son Vida, Arabella Golf

The older sibling at Arabella, Son Vida was remodelled at the same time as Son Muntaner’s opening. The greens, tees, bunkers and water hazards were all reconstructed however only two holes were changed.

It’s arguably the Balearic Island’s most picturesque course with idyllic views from the fairways across the Bay of Palma. The 18th is the highlight, a par-5 featuring a double dogleg and two lakes to try and ruin your round!

Club de Golf Santa Ponsa

Measuring in at 6543 yards, this relatively long 18-hole parkland course was designed by Folco Nardi and is perfect for beginners and more experienced golfers alike. There are plenty of obstacles throughout to keep things interesting including doglegs and water features which encourage good course management.

Plus, with the glittering lakes and a great variety of olive, pine, and almond trees, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery at various holes throughout. Watch out for the dramatic par 4 16th hole which requires a steady nerve and accurate shot-making.


Viewed by many as a Mediterranean masterpiece, this par-72, 18-hole course is one of the oldest, highest-rated and most popular courses on the island, measuring in at 6,450 yards. Providing an excellent challenge for golfer’s of all levels, it boasts spectacular views as it runs through the rolling countryside. As you move through the course you’ll find majestic pines, fifteen lakes, and plenty of bunkers. The flora and fauna make it a perfect Mediterranean paradise, The views from the 8th and 16th holes alone are enough to entice any golfer to visit this club.
