Best Golf Courses In Majorca
A list of our must-play golf courses in the stunning and popular holiday destination of Majorca.
The Balearic Island 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 golf 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, Alacanada 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, Arabella Golf Club
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.
West Course at Son Antem Resort
Set at the stunning Be Live Collection Son Antem 5*, both the East and West Courses are high calibre resort layouts not to be sniffed at. A regular retreat for keen golfer Rafael Nadal, the West Course is tighter than its sibling and features several water hazards.
The closing hole is an absolute epic. The stroke index 1 par-4 has water lurking all the way down the left-hand side and you will no doubt be glad to get into the clubhouse with a par 4 on the card.
Golf Park Majorca Puntiró
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!
Vall d’Or Golf Course
At a moderate length, Vall D’Or will still test many a golfer. The front nine is tight with trees looming over most of the fairways. The 3rd hole is the standout, a mesmerising par-5 starting high up from an elevated tee.
Spectacular views can be seen over the bay of Porto Colom, also visible on the back 9 which opens out. The 18th is a challenging par-3 sat in front of the clubhouse and requires one final bit of precision.
Golf de Andratx
Andratx is a crazy experience, set among majestic landscape and severe terrain. It is quite simply a necessity to use a buggy due to the tortuous nature of the topography.
With several elevated tees, dramatic doglegs, ponds, stone walls and bunkers Golf de Andratx is a one-off. It’s an acquired taste, however many of the members and regular holidaymakers alike will tell you just how epic this golf course really is.
