Our Social Media Content Creator recently ventured on a trip to the scenic golf island of Majorca. While out there he managed to play the spectacular golf courses, sample the great nightlife and enjoy the tasty food on offer.
Below is his guide and top tips for golf holidays in Majorca.
The island of Majorca is home to some of the best golf courses in Spain, as well as a few hidden gems that will leave you in awe.
Son Muntaner, the host of the recent Majorca Open, is everything you would want from a DP World Tour venue. A great course for golfers of all standards with a wide range of tees! The course offers some incredible views as it sweeps through the undulating hills in the outskirts of Palma.
As one of the most recognisable golf courses in Spain, Alcanada is another YGT favourite when talking about the great courses in Majorca. Designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, Alcanada is a must for all golfers when visiting Majorca.
Son Vida is the oldest course on the island, so it’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for a quirky, fun course to play. On most holes, irons and good course management are needed, so use the yardage book wisely to plot your route around the course.
There is a vast choice of restaurants and bars in most towns, with a vibrant nightlife. The Sky Bar at Bar Cuba, Palma offers spectacular views of the bay with an amazing selection of drinks that visitors can enjoy late into the night.
This makes it very easy to stay up until the early hours of the morning in Majorca (Don’t miss your tee-time!)
If you’re interested in trying out the local cuisine, there’s a fabulous selection of seafood restaurants to choose from!
An absolute must visit for golfers travelling here is the La Terraza Restaurant in Alcudia. Enjoy fresh produce with local charm and a selection of quality wines for a truly unforgettable experience.
The seafood paella is a real highlight. For those who miss English food from back home, there are still plenty of options to choose from.
With 300 days of sunshine a year, Majorca is a no-brainer if you’re looking to chase the sun! Winter golf or summer golf, any time of the year is a great time to enjoy those sun-kissed fairways!
Activities away from the course
There’s plenty to do off the course as well: if you’re feeling really adventurous, take a boat to one the semi-deserted bays on the north island and swim in the clear water. A day cruise in Majorca along the north coast is one we would highly recommend. As it less crowded than the rest of the island and offers spectacular cliffs of over 180 meters in height.
