Welcome to Mallorca Majorca Golf
Mallorca has an extensive range of beautiful golf courses. There are 15 courses in total dotted all over Majorca. With the all year round weather no wonder it has become one of the top destinations for a golfing holiday!! Below are a few of the courses in more detail!
Club de Golf Alcanada opened on October 1st 2003 this is the nearest thing to a links course on the island. When Robert Trent Jones designed this course his philosophy was " easy bogeys and difficult pars" and without doubt he succeeded. Not a course for beginners, but the reasonably confident golfer will appreciate his skill in creating a hard but fair 18 holes. Green Fee 75

The Andratx course at Camp de Mar is Mallorca's newest course and was opened in 2000. Magnificently laid out, its design is credited to the Gleneagles Golf Development and Rodney Barr. It is a long course but is well maintained and exceptionally well run. There are more than 60 bunkers on the course and them, along with the seven lakes and tricky narrow fairways add to the severity of a beautiful, if not challenging golf course. Good and accurate driving has never been more of a requisite than it is at Golf de Andratx.
The Royal Dorint Hotel, which is adjacent to the 18th green, offers the best in five star luxury and the clubhouse is of the highest standard, as one would expect from such a new course and, like so many Mallorcan courses, part of the course is surrounded by property developments. But the remainder is set in unspoilt Mallorquin countryside.
The normal green fee is 90 which includes a compulsory buggy.

Real Golf de Bendinat Course - The original Bendinat 9-hole course, designed by Martin Hawtree, opened in 1986. The second nine holes were added in 1996.
Close to the city of Palma, Bendinat is in the Calvia municipality and is set in a valley. Many of the tees are elevated, and most of the fairways are tree lined and have severe slopes. The difficult greens then add to the challenge the Bendinat course offers. The undulating and varying terrain gives the golfer the opportunity to use all 14 clubs in his bag (the maximum!). The views over the Bay of Palma from the course are spectacular to say the least and the flora and wildlife around the course are a joy to see.
Normal Green fee is 67

The Canyamel Golf course opened in 1989 and its 6,000 metres offers a hilly front nine holes and a slightly longer and flat back nine - but a lot of water makes up for its flatness and is a real test of any player's ability. Set in a small valley, the natural terrain was perfect for designing a golf course, which is just what designer José Gancedo did. The view of the mountains on the inward nine make a spectacular backdrop to a course that is set in an unspoilt part of Mallorca, and, being close to the sea, some of the outward holes offer great views of the Mediterranean. From the 5th tee you can see Menorca on a clear day.
A well maintained course with exceptionally well kept greens, many of the fairways are wide, thus giving the high handicap players chance to make amends for wayward tee shots. Many of the natural old stone walls have been left intact around the course and one of the best known landmarks on all of the Mallorcan golf courses is the stone house in the middle of the 9th fairway...

The Capdepera Golf Course - A Dan Maples designed course, Capdepera, also known as Roca Viva, was opened in 1991. It is set in beautiful countryside and whilst it is surrounded by mountains it also offers some spectacular views of the Mediterranean. The view as you stand on the 15th tee and look out over the valley to the Med. is something special and typifies the attraction of Mallorcan golf courses.
The golf course is divided into two halves: The first nine holes are flat with long fairways, while the second nine holes start off with three flat holes before rising into the Artá mountains.
Normal Green Fee 69
Golf de Poniente is one of Mallorca's oldest courses, the John Harris course was opened in 1978 and is a well designed course that even the best of players find it hard to beat at times, but it remains a tough but fair course. The views from the 8th, and 16th holes are exhilarating and make you appreciate the beauty of this course, and it is hard to believe that you are only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the thriving resort of Magalluf.
The wide fairways are a feature of Poniente, but don't be fooled into thinking that makes the course any easier; they don't, because many slope away unsuspectingly. The large greens are also devious at times. But the main hazards on this course are the many trees which line the fairways and have been home to many wayward tee shots. The 10th hole is probably one of the best golf holes in Mallorca. Stroke index 1, it does not appear that hard, but out of bounds on the right and a lot of water to negotiate make it a great hole to achieve your par on.
