sarahforrest review

Warming up on the pretty driving range allowed the golf ball to roll down the hills into the centre of the 'fairway'- and whilst not indicative of the course, did make for a pleasing start. In fact first impressions when arriving at Son Quint were great, the first has a large stone walled area which makes it look like quality, sadly as you round the corner the harsh winter (for Mallorca) was evident and the brown grass spread across the rough to the fairways - this was evident on a lot of holes. I am assured that some sunshine and a drop of rain will help improve the course, and I don't doubt it will. The day we played was pleasant but did rain heavily for the final few holes. The greens did flood with this deluge of rain and didn't drain very well leaving water in play on the greens towards the end. The forward tee boxes often were not flat, and not only undulating but had a camber in them which meant the golf ball was tee'd higher than the feet. I have since been told that this is being addressed to give better quality tees for all golfers. The course itself was a lovely layout, the long par three number 12 over water was a challenge with very little bail out to the left - so any water shy or less confident may struggle with this hole. I thought the bunkers were some of the best I'd played - slightly gritty in texture the ball responded well to the club and popped out nicely - on every bunker I visited. Hole 7 appears narrow from the tees, with the bunkers providing an optical illusion - but in fact it wasn't that bad. Sadly it did rain the final holes, not it didn't rain, it poured it down - we got soaked but carried on - however when back in the clubhouse there was little or not facilities to enable us to dry out (ourselves or our clothes) Big sloping greens did play well - until it rained anyway!
