Majorca Mallorca Golf for all Golf Levels

This article outlines a selection of Majorca Mallorca golf courses that are worth playing for all different reasons. Whether you want peaceful countryside, rugged beaches, or golf courses close to the city, there’s a course to suit you. And choices for all standards of play.
Some courses are better suited to beginners where a higher handicap of up to 56 is allowed. Others are first class championship courses where you are only able to play if your handicap is 28 or under.
Other courses don’t require that you have a handicap.

Find your Golf Course to suit your Individuality

There are 20 public Mallorca Majorca golf courses to choose from on the island. Feedback on condition of greens, fairways and tee boxes and customer service are all evaluated in the customer survey. However, the golf course that works best for you may not necessarily rank in the top 10. 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.
Like any business there is the odd negative review. Son Vida Golf Course is no exception and examples of such comments include “too many grannies taking ages”. It is also criticised for being overplayed in high season but this Mallorca golf course is an institution so there will be the odd queue. As for the grannies-well that’s part of why it’s suitable for the higher handicap and less experienced players. If you don’t want to wait, you’ll have to choose a different course!
Have a look for yourself at the most recent Son Vida Golf Course Trip Advisor reviews

Customer Satisfaction survey results

Son Vida went up a place to number 8 most popular Majorca Mallorca golf course in 2019. In 2020 it sits in number 5 place as a result of the customer satisfaction survey results. Not bad, out of 20 courses! Players continue to have a very good overall experience of this course and enjoy it’s shape and relative ease of play. The speed of play and tee-times from mid-morning onwards can be an issue perhaps preventing a top three 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.

Son Muntaner is the toughest of the Arabella Sheraton 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’ on the map above. (SV, SM and SQ on the map are all part of the 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 dropped one place in the rankings from number 3 to number 4 in 2020. This ranking reflects the results of the Mallorca golf customer satisfaction surveys across all courses. Customers are still having a great overall experience at this course though. But just like it’s sister course Son Vida mentioned above, Tee-times and speed of play can be an issue during peak times. So best to visit Son Muntaner at low season or at off peak times. Read the latest Trip Advisor Reviews on Arabella Golf Son Muntaner

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 once again improved by one place to rank as the number 6 golf course on Mallorca in 2020. 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 at The Sheraton Arabella Complex helps their three courses to rank highly. 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

golf ball by hole

Santa Ponsa Golf survey results and reviews

Santa Ponsa 1 remains 13th ranked Majorca Mallorca golf course in 2020.
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, busier part of Mallorca with a ‘holiday feel’.

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, also in South-West Mallorca, takes 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 GOLF CLUB

map showing proximity of Son Gual and Son Antem golf clubs Mallorca to El Arenal
Upmarket Mallorca golf courses very close to playa de Palma, El Arenal and Palma Mallorca airport
Self-contained Mallorca Golf resort and spa

SON ANTEM  Son Antem is earmarked because of the abundance of facilities on offer here and because of it’s beautiful countryside setting. Son Antem Golf complex has the largest driving area in Mallorca, the largest practise area in Spain and the 2nd largest in Europe. There is a golf school for juniors and seniors and two courses to choose from depending on ability. It is a suitable golf venue for all levels. In fact you’d never have to leave if you stayed at this Marriot group owned spa hotel and golf complex with restaurant and supermarket on site.

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 East is easier than Son Antem West although still provides a challenge. Son Antem West is a championship course offering challenges to the advanced golfer.This Mallorca golf complex also has the advantage also of being set in beautiful countryside.

Son Antem East

Son Antem East struggles to get good reviews in recent years and in 2020 managed to only rank 18th out of 20 courses. This is probably the reason it will be closing for 3 months during the summer of 2020 for an overhaul. For now though it’s plus points are that beginners are welcome and some of the most reasonable green fee rates in Mallorca are available here. Look out for updates about Son Antem closures on our this website’s Facebook page.
Beginners may feel more comfortable with the more lenient handicap of 56 needed for both men and women.

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 Golf Course Rankings

There’s no dressing it up; Son Antem West came out badly in the rankings. It placed 19th in 2020 out of the 20 Majorca Mallorca golf courses. Such a shame because a lot of money has been invested into it. It still gets good press but golfers are simply favouring other courses.
DON’T BE PUT OFF BY THE SURVEY RESULTS!! As you can see there’s a lot going for it and a lot of reasons to visit

Son Gual Course Rankings

Son Gual ranks as Mallorca’s number 3 course for 2020 behind Alcanada and T-Golf and Country Club.

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.

Conveniently placed Accommodation for Son Gual Golf

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.
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.
