Mallorca may be famed for its clement climate, beautiful beaches and laid-back lifestyle, but the island is also popular with golf lovers who enjoy the first-class courses available across the island.
Son Vida - Palma area
Golf Son Vida is an excellent golf course in the most exclusive residential area of Palma de Mallorca. Luxury mansions, with avant-garde architectural design and sea views, sit adjacent to the sprawling fairways, alongside two 5-star hotels. Inaugurated in 1964, Golf Son Vida holds a great historical legacy since many world-class golfers have played here, including the Spanish golfing legend, Severiano Ballesteros. Golf Son Vida also has a remodelled clubhouse, pro shop and restaurant with fantastic views of the shimmering lake at the 18th hole.
Son Muntaner - Palma area
Tee off at Golf Son Muntaner, one of the best golf courses in Europe on the outskirts of Palma, where you can perfect your swing in the practice area, complete with driving range and pitching area, or on the island’s largest putting green. Designed to challenge even the most competent golfer, the course is carefully and sustainably maintained; look out for the oldest olive tree in Mallorca which has been respectfully preserved. Alongside a pro shop, Restaurant Son Muntaner provides cool drinks and snacks; and for the most dedicated golfers, you could make one of the extraordinary villas, set in the rolling Son Vida Hills, your home.
