The Best Golf Courses in Mallorca

The mild climate all year round, the beautiful beaches and the relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle make Mallorca a sought-after location for a second home or a holiday home. The Spanish sunny island is particularly popular among golfers and inspires with varied and challenging golf courses all over the island. With 300 days of sunshine a year, Mallorca is the perfect place to practise your swing all-year-round. The golf courses are thoughtfully planned by international designers within natural surroundings with challenging features, excellent facilities and spectacular views of the Tramuntana mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.  

The Mallorca Golf Open, a true golfing classic, is held every year at the Santa Ponsa Golf Club. Last year, Engel & Völkers was one of the official sponsors of this tournament won by Jeff Winther. 

At Engel & Völkers, we are dedicated to supporting local sports events. This year, we are sponsoring several important golfing tournaments, including the Diario de Mallorca Golf Event Golf Mairois, the Mallorca Zeitung Golf Event in Alcanada and the Social Liga series in Son Vida. Come and check them out! 

From 18-hole courses to golf lessons, we have whittled down our favourite greens on the island just for you.
