Mallorca surprises the visitor with the wide variety of its 22 golf courses. Their proximity and variety make for an exciting, varied game. The mild temperatures throughout the year, the sea breeze and the smell of the Mediterranean are the ideal conditions to enjoy a perfect experience on a short, intense break or a long stay.
As well as their surprising design, the new golf courses incorporate the best techniques for water and energy saving. They are especially environmentally friendly and even preserve native flora which becomes an added value.
But the facilities with many years of experience have also incorporated a set of measures to guarantee benefits for their own environment. At the same time they reinforce their professionalism to meet all the expectations and demands of the most experienced players.
Son Vida Golf, the oldest golf course in Mallorca, opened in 1964. You can enjoy the spectacular views of Palma Bay while playing a highly strategic game. Golf Son Servera opened in the 1960s. It has beautiful native flora and a combination of mountain and sea views that you can also enjoy in the Pollença golf course. It opened in 1986 and offers views of the Tramuntana mountains, Pollença Bay and S’Albufera natural park. The Canyamel golf course opened its doors shortly afterwards. It was designed by José Cancedo following very strict environmental standards.
Golf Son Termens is one of the most environmentally friendly courses and was created in the 1990s. It is located just 10 kilometres from Palma, in the municipality of Bunyola.

Pine, olive and almond trees are common in the landscape of courses such as Golf de Poniente and Vall D’Or Golf. Beaches and marinas add to the charm of the three-way offer of Golf Santa Ponsa and Real Golf de Bendinat. Other courses stand out for their competitiveness. This is the case of the two courses of Golf Son Antem, which are located near the Mallorca Marriott Son Antem Golf Resort & Spa. Those staying in the hotel’s luxury rooms and suites can indulge in the Mediterranean cuisine and relax in its modern spa, even finding time after a business meeting in one of the hotel halls.
