Son Gual, Mallorca

Try two of Spain’s best at Son Gual and Alcanada

Mallorca provides one of the best sceneries for playing golf abroad. Here, our golfing holidays expert looks at Son Gual and Alcanada.
 

So the golf here is more expensive than much of mainland Spain?

Of course it is, because funnily enough all that sand in those perfectly raked bunkers, and the fertiliser that is needed to produce those immaculate tee boxes and true, undulating greens has to be imported.

But if you want to play two of the best courses, not just on this beautiful island, but in the whole of Spain, just pay the small difference and enjoy.

I am talking about Mallorca and the top two courses by a distance of all 22 on the island are Alcanada and Son Gual. They are certainly no place for the novice and they aren’t cheap either, but you most certainly get what you pay for and a lot of hotels will offer a discount on the quoted green fees.

So do shop around for the right package and remember that you are paying to play the same standard of course that you would find at the likes of The Berkshire or Woking in the UK – that’s how good they are.

Having flown in to Palma International airport, it makes sense to make our first stop Son Gual which is no more than 18 minutes away provided you do not get as hopelessly lost as I did.

Just make sure, if you are driving yourself, you do not miss that tiny red sign on the right hand side of the road with the word ‘Golf’ on it.

Once you have followed that you will soon be outside the huge, stylish and welcoming clubhouse on the top of the hill with wonderful views across what is widely regarded as Mallorca’s number one course.
