The Experience

Golf Son Vida is not only the oldest course but also still one of the best and most enjoyable rounds in Mallorca, with wonderful upkeep, and fantastic views. Its age also means that the course is fully matured and does not have the open field feel some of the newer courses suffer. It is not a long course and the holes are tougher than they appear from the tees, therefore you need to play more with your head than with your arms.

Its technical design, whose fairways run through the residential area of Son Vida, the quick greens, and water hazards at the 16th and 18th holes present formidable challenges that require a clever game strategy, yet this is a course that can be mastered by golfers of all handicaps. The best experience at this course is teeing off before a breathtaking sunset. 

Golf Son Vida also has a renovated Club House with Pro Shop and Restaurant, on whose terrace you can relax enjoying the breathtaking views of the 18th hole and its magnificent lake, as well as the Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel.

The Experience

Back to its original splendor after a nearly two-year renovation, T Golf is one of the oldest on the island. It is a straightforward course that runs through beautiful rolling hills, with no trick holes and very few blind shots. Large stands of pine trees have been used to create some tight fairways and the addition of six water hazards provides players with a challenge. The front 9 holes may be a little boring but the back nine will take you through dense forest and over steep inclines.

Hole 10 is considered by some to be the best hole on the island. Of special note are the views from the 8th and 16th holes which are worth a visit alone and give the player an appreciation for the rugged beauty of this course. For nature lovers, the flora and fauna on the course make it a pure Mediterranean paradise. 

Set in a typical Mallorcan farmhouse dating back to the 19th century, the clubhouse offers the perfect location to end your day in style. The diversified menu of the restaurant and drinks can be enjoyed either inside or on the terrace adjacent to the 18th green.

Playing at Canyamel golf course is like a walk in the park as this course is known for the abundance and variety of its vegetation, from 100-year-old palm trees to figs, pines, three types of carob, and wild olive. Other than the wonderful nature, it features lateral and frontal water hazards on several holes providing players of any level with a challenge.

Two holes with the greatest difficulty, like hole 9, par 4, with the peculiarity of a stone hut in the middle that makes it hard to play its 384 meters with 4 strokes, and hole 2, also par 4, with a long-distance and undulation. It is also worth mentioning hole 4 boasting views on the sea and even the Island of Menorca, or the gorgeous hole 18 with triple “piano” undulation, which can be observed from the terrace of the Club House.
