All Square Itineraries: Mallorca – Part One

All Square has planned the perfect itinerary for a golf trip to the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca. To save you a job, we’ve picked out three great courses and excellent nearby accommodation for a memorable, sunny trip to golfing heaven.

Arrival airport: Palma International Airport

Son Gual Golf

We rate this fantastic course as the 7th best in the whole of Spain. Just 15 minutes from the airport, Son Gual is a par 72 parkland course designed by respected German architect Thomas Himmel, who has produced a highly enjoyable experience for players of all levels. It’s in great condition, especially the greens, and the par 3s are particularly good. There’s lots of bunkers and water, great views over Palma, an excellent clubhouse, and a superb finishing hole that will stay in the memory.

Golf Son Vida

Just 15 minutes west of the airport, this is the oldest course in Mallorca and a favourite with golfers from all over Europe. It’s got a comforting traditional feel and there’s stunning views over the Bay of Palma. Son Vida is hilly and strategic with elevated greens requiring craft, but the fairways are wide and forgiving. The 18th is the signature hole, with a second shot over water which will either make or break your round if you’re feeling brave.

Golf d’Andratx

About 25km west of the airport, Golf d’Andratx is a challenging championship course that winds its way through a breathtaking landscape of olive groves, almond trees and ancient Mallorca stone walls. It has over 60 bunkers and seven lakes adding to the test, as well as elevated tees, blind tee shots and undulating terrain. It requires great course management, but the great variety of holes keeps things ticking over nicely. The Halfway House has great food and drink.
