Golf in Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands, situated in the Mediterranean Sea, consist of four larger islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) and some smaller islands. Although Ibiza is well known for the party scene, there is plenty of room to get away from the young(er) crowds and enjoy the nature and the beautiful Balearic golf courses.

Golf in Balearic Islands
One could argue that Mallorca is the go-to Balearic Island for a golf holiday. In total there are 24 golf clubs on the Balearic Islands, of which 22 are located on Mallorca. These golf courses are known for their good quality, good service and beautiful views of the mediterranean terrain. The other golf courses are located on Ibiza and Menorca. Due to the Mediterranean climate the Balearic Islands are suitable for year round golf. The golf courses on the Balearic Islands are known for their rough mediterranean terrain. While playing the views will be baffling, including undulating fairways and high rocks. A popular golf course on the Balearic Islands is Golf Son Gual. This 18-hole course, designed by Thomas Himmel, is beautifully situated in the heart of Mallorca. Due to its scenic setting and undulating terrain, the course is rated as one of the best golf courses on the Balearic Islands. For golfers who are looking to get a bit more out of their golf holiday, there are plenty of opportunities. For example Pula Golf Resort. This resort, also located on Mallorca, has an 18-hole golf course designed by José María Olazábal. The course is known to be very demanding, but there are unique spa facilities to relax after the round. The one golf course on Ibiza is called Golf Ibiza. This 27-hole golf course is one of the two golf courses that can be found on an other Balearic Islands than Mallorca. This Balearic golf course was founded in 1992 and is located a 15 minute drive from the capital of the island. The two courses have some distinctive differences. Although Golf Ibiza is the only golf course on the island, it doesn’t necessarily make it a course for the younger generation. Ibiza has so much more to offer than just the party scene. The island has many beautiful, quiet little towns so it’s suitable for all golfers alike. For those who do visit the island for the party life, Golf Ibiza might just be the ideal “day after the night before” golf course! Golf Son Parc Menorca is till today the only golf course on Menorca. The golf course has 18 holes and is designed by Dave Thomas.The par-69 course features an interesting loop of 6 par-3 holes, 9 par-4 holes and 3 par-5 holes. Golf Son Parc is situated in the hills of the coastal village Son Parc. This picturesque town has a child friendly beach to relax after your round of golf. Don’t want to be on the golf course every day? Rent a mountain bike and explore the surroundings. So, grab those golf clubs (or rent them) and get on a plane to the Balearic Islands and their golf courses and enjoy!

Club de Golf Alcanada
Deze baan is erg bijzonder door diverse zaken, ten eerste de eigenaar is Porsche en dat zie je wel terug aan diverse details en ligt erg mooi gelegen in het noorden van Mallorca met de vuurtoren en vergezichten als hoogtepunt. De club is met de auto zeer goed te bereiken en bij aankomst is er ruime parkeergelegenheid en straalt de klasse er al vanaf. Zeer fraai onderhoude…

Club de Golf Son Servera
We played Son Servera on Saturday, the first of three 'Son' courses (Son Servera, Son Gual and Son Muntaner) we played on Mallorca. Really nice and warm welcome here. The club is a members club, but I did not really feel that. People were friendly and helpful. The clubhouse interior is quite modern with a good restaurant and nice terrace overlooking the putting green and …

Played there some years ago and still have great memories. The Club in general is really nice and you can enjoy great views of the mediterranean sea both from the Club house terrace and some of the tees. Definitely worth a visit!

Club de Golf Alcanada
In so einem schlechten Zustand haben wir den Platz noch nie angetroffen. Abschläge gut, aber die Fairways braun und teilweise graslos. Die Greens waren je nach Ballposition nicht spielbar. Die Graspfropfen sind nicht ebenerdig, teilweise ohne Gras, die neuen Rasenziegel sind ausgetrocknet, haben Zwischenräume und sind ebenfalls nicht ebenerdig verlegt. Kein Vergleich mit …

Es tut uns Leid zu hören, dass wir dieses Mal Ihre Erwartungen an unseren Platz nicht erfüllen konnten und es freut uns zu hören, das Ihnen Son Gual so gut gefallen hat. Sie haben recht, an 2-3 Grüns (insbesondere an Grün 5), müssen einige Stellen am Rande der Grüns nochmals ausgebessert werden, nachdem die kürzlich gepflanzten Rasenziegel bei der aktuellen Hitze nicht angewachsen sind. Die Kritik an unseren Fairways können wir so nicht teilen. Wir hoffen, dass Sie bei Ihrem nächsten Besuch in Alcanada wieder voll und ganz zufrieden sind! Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Kristoff Both Golfdirektor Club de Golf Alcanada
