Top of the table not necessarily the best

20 Mallorca Majorca golf courses feature in the yearly survey mentioned above. But the golf course that works best for you may not even be in the top 10 of the survey. For instance, if you’re a beginner, a course with a slower speed of play will suit you better than a faster one. What one golfer condemns about a course may work to your advantage!

The Sheraton Majorca Mallorca Arabella Golf Resort: A three course Golf complex

Teeing off with the Sheraton Mallorca Mallorca Arabella. golf resort This one is referred to as a Palma City Golf Resort. The complex sits in the hills of Palma and the views over Palma Bay seem only stones throw away
Three courses make up the resort: Son Vida, Son Mutaner and Son Quint. And each course is worth a visit for different reasons. There is something for every level of play at this complex and it’s an easy drive to drop down to Palma City.

Arabella Sheraton Son Vida golf for Beginners and Recreational Golfers

Son Vida
PLEASE NOTE: SON VIDA IS CLOSED BETWEEN JANUARY 7TH-29TH FEBRUARY 2020 FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO FAIRWAY BUNKERS, DRAINAGE AND TEE BOXES.
Referred to as ‘SV’ on the map above. It’s the shortest course of this 3 course Sheraton Arabella Golf resort. Beginners will feel at home here. The handicap needed to play on this 18 hole par 71 course is a lenient 56 for both men and women. It was the first course to open on Mallorca in 1964 with a re-design in 2001.

Traditional but Fun

A traditional but fun course with many short holes so ideal for novice golfers. There is a comfortable, ‘no pressure’ vibe about Son Vida course. Improving golfers can enjoy playing here too with the tight layout, well placed tee shots and 4 lakes and plenty of trees. It is a walkable course although buggies available for the less fit.

Son Vida Reviews

The management at Son Vida read and respond to all trip advisor reviews. On the back of these, they consider how to make improvements and changes.
Negative comments such as “too many grannies taking ages”; “overplayed in high season” and “no halfway hut for refreshment” may have let it down slightly. The management are addressing the hydration issue but do carry your own to be on the safe side. As for the grannies-well that’s part of why it’s suitable for the higher handicap players. If you don’t want to wait, you’ll have to choose a different course!
Have a look at the most recent Son Vida Golf Course Trip Advisor reviews

Customer Satisfaction survey results

Son Vida has gone up a place to number 8 this year as a result of the Mallorca Golf customer satisfaction survey. Players continue to have a very good overall experience of this course. The speed of play and tee-times from mid-morning onwards can be an issue perhaps preventing a higher ranking.

What Reviews like about The Arabella Sheraton Resort

Trip Advisor Reviewers particularly like the condition of Son Vida and the views over Palma Bay. Also that it has easy access to Sa Vileta and Palma for shopping.

Looking down over Palma

Son Muntaner is the toughest of this 3 course complex

Arabella Golf Son Muntaner is the longest of the three courses on the Arabella Sheraton Golf Resort and the most challenging of the three Sheraton Arabella golf courses. On the map above, it is at the same location as ‘SV’ as part of the 3 course Sheraton Arabella golf complex. Son Muntaner is set within olive groves and a pine forest. Golfers are offered a challenge with long spacious fairways and greens that are big and fast. Both men and women need a handicap of 36 to be able to play at Son Muntaner.
It’s an 18 hole par 72 course and was completely re-surfaced with Bemuda princess celebration grass in Autumn 2016.
This course lacks the views that it’s sister course Son Vida offers.

Son Muntaner Customer Satisfaction Results

Son Muntaner has gone up a place to number 3 this year in the Mallorca golf customer satisfaction survey results. Customers are having a great overall experience at this course. Like it’s sister course Son Vida mentioned above, Tee-times and speed of play can be an issue during peak times.

Son Quint: Mallorca’s Newest Golf Course

Arabella Golf Son Quint golf course is the third of the three courses that make up the Sheraton Arabella golf resort; Son Quint is the newest of all golf courses on Mallorca; construction began only in 2009.

Suitable for Beginners

Son Quint golf course provides a realistic challenge to both the less experienced and improving golfer. There are no enormous bunkers or ridiculous water hazards and in most places it is not overly tight. The required handicap is a more lenient here: 54 for men and women. On the map above it is in the same location as ‘SV’ as part of the 3 course Arabella golf group.

Son Quint Reviews

Reviews suggest an enjoyable overall experience at this course. Praise is given for its interesting holes, it’s great golf pro shop and good food at good prices at the club. Also there’s a halfway refreshment hut

Son Quint Customer Survey Results

Son Quint has gone up a ranking to number 7 in this years’ Mallorca golf customer satisfaction survey results. Customers continue to have a great overall game at this course.

Great overall Customer Service at the Arabella Sheraton Golf Complex

The friendliness of staff and great customer service overall at The Sheraton Arabella Complex goes a long way to compensate for any flaws mentioned in the reviews. Staff make a big effort here and give the impression they really want you return. And most of the Trip Advisor reviews posted of all courses at Sheraton Arabella complex are read noted and replied to by management.

Santa Ponsa Majorca Mallorca Golf Course

GOLF SANTA PONSA

 

map showing Santa Ponsa golf club positioning
Santa Ponsa golf club is arguably the most well known and busiest in Mallorca

Address: Club de Santa Ponsa, Avinguda Golf s/n, 07180, Calvia, Mallorca   Website: www.habitatgolf.es        Email:golf1@habitatgolf.es

Telephone: 0034 971 690 211

Well Established

Santa Ponsa is one of the busiest golf club and is the 2nd oldest Mallorca course, opening it’s doors in 1977.
It lies in the more commercialised and touristy South-West of Mallorca. (Son Vida was 1st to open). Santa Ponsa 1, the only course open to the public out of the three courses at Santa Ponsa.
It’s a 18 hole par 72 course where men need a handicap of 28 and women 36.

Santa Ponsa private Golf courses

The other two golf courses at Santa Ponsa golf club are courses 11 and 111. They are reserved for the company shareholders and for tournaments and not open to the public. The Balearic open European tour has been held here 6 times between 1988 and 1998. Golfing legends, celebrities and royalty have all played here.

Interesting Style and design

The course is an interesting shape, designed with wide fairways, several doglegs and good use of water. The fifth hole is the longest par 5 in Europe and the 10th hole is for long hitters.

Great practise facilities at Santa Ponsa Golf Club

Santa Ponsa golf club has a 250 metre driving range for up to 50 players at a time. There’s also a chipping area and two putting greens
Check out 2019 summer offers for Santa Ponsa Golf

Santa Ponsa Golf survey results and reviews

Santa Ponsa 1 dropped 3 places to number 13 this year Mallorca customer satisfaction survey results.
Customers are still having a positive experience. It’s just that other courses have overtaken it and certain improvements are still needed here. Still a great choice for intermediate to advanced golfers though. Especially if you like a challenge and prefer a more commercialised, busy part of Mallorca.

Santa Ponsa and Andratx Golf

If staying in the vicinity of Santa Ponsa Golf Club, it is convenient to visit the upmarket western area of Port Andratx. On the way there you will find Andratx Golf Club near the Mallorca resort of Camp de Mar.

Day off from Golf

A boat trip from Sant Elm gets you to the island of sa Dragonera national park. Great for a visit or some diving and snorkelling and seeing protected species of wildlife. Why not take a day off from the golf; you’ll enjoy this trip!

Hotels convenient for Santa Ponsa Golf

Give a wide berth to The Santa Ponsa Golf Hotel if you are adults wanting a peaceful golf holiday. Although it is the nearest, some Trip Advisor reviews (more than one) refer to noise pollution from private pool hire for children’s parties spoiling adult’s quiet enjoyment time at this hotel.

Other Accommodation Choices for Santa Ponsa Golf

There are reasonably priced accommodation for Santa Ponsa Golf in nearby Paguera and Santa Ponsa itself. These resorts are quite touristy depending on where you stay. So choose carefully!
The Valentin Park Club hotel Paguera and The Valentin Paguera Hotel and suites (adults only) are both worth a look. Both are within easy access to Santa Ponsa Golf Club and Port d’Andratx and offer good value for money.

Son Antem: A club of two halves

The Son Antem Majorca Mallorca golf complex consists of a course for beginners and a course for intermediates/ advanced golfers. The 100 room hotel and villa complex sits in between these two 18 hole golf courses separating the complex’s two courses.

Son Antem West Championship Course

Son Antem West is a championship course that opened in 2001. It’s best suited to serious golfers. Men need a handicap of 27 and ladies 35 on this 18 hole par 72 undulating course. There are greens edged with water and narrow fairways.

Son Antem latest customer satisfaction survey results

Tel: 0034-971-785-888
In 2019, Son Gual ranks as Mallorca’s number two golf course. It fell off it’s top spot this year descending to number 2 in the overall golf satisfaction survey rankings. T-Golf and country Club overtook to claim the number one slot this year!

Son Gual lies in a main Flight Path

Son Gual can be a noisy golf course. Despite it’s high regard, you have to be aware that Son Gual golf course is under the main flight path of planes flying into Mallorca. In high season this means a plane goes overhead at least once every two minutes. And you will still hear the thud of the wheels on the runway every time a plane lands. This however is the only significant criticism of this fine Majorca Mallorca golf course.If you are a plane-spotter as well as a golfer-then great! But you do need to be aware of this fact. And obviously it doesn’t bother most customers or it wouldn’t continue to score so highly in the Majorca golf satisfaction survey rankings. Now that fact is out of the way let’s get down to the golf itself!

Son Gual: A Spectacular Course

If you’re not phased by the plane noise, treat yourself to a round at Son Gual Golf. It’s a spectacular 18 hole par 72 course with a handicap of 28 for men and 36 for women. It opened in 2007 and was designed by German golf course architect Thomas Himmel. Son Gual has 7 artificial lakes, is gently undulating and the course can be walked although buggies are available. Fifteen minute starting staggers are in place to try and avoid any hold ups.

Son Gual: Advanced Championship Course of High Calibre Status

Son Gual is a massive challenge especially if windy and is not for the occasional or novice golfer.
According to Golf World: ‘Son Gual is what a modern championship course should be and is every inch a serious tour venue’. It also has a golf academy that uses the logicalgolf© coaching system.
Sam Torrance, Mark James and Ian Woosnam (who likened the course to Augustin) have all played here. Son Gual hosted 2009 European senior tour.

Improvements following Alcanada’s Refurbishment

In 2019, Alcanada slipped down to number five in the Mallorca Golf satisfaction survey results. It was number two last year. March 2019 saw it’s re-opening after undergoing a major refurbishment at the. Improvements will be reflected in it’s 2020 rankings. What did Alcanada’s refurbishment involve? Greens being replaced with the improved type of Bentgrass (Tee 1). This gives more density and vertical growth for a better game. Also there are small changes in the shape of the greens for more flag positions.
The sand in the bunkers in now white silica sand for better playing conditions. And a brand new pro shop is now open with the latest equipment from TaylorMade. Maybe the improvements will help bring it back in the top three.
