Check out the best golf courses to play in Mallorca.

Golf is a sport that originated in Scotland over 500 years ago and today is so popular around the world that a wide audience can enjoy this fantastic sport. From the young to the old.
There are many different types of golf courses available for people to play. Some courses are designed for beginners and others for experienced players. There are also some unique golf courses that offer sea or mountain views, or that have been built in the traditional Spanish style with palm trees lining the fairways.
In this article we are going to talk about their benefits and which are the golf courses where you can start or continue playing in Mallorca.

Golf, hobby and sport

For many people golf is a hobby that allows them to be outdoors and in a natural environment where they can socialise or sometimes be alone to disconnect. It is clear that golf is more than a hobby, it really is a professional sport that is played worldwide and in which you can compete at a very high level. At the time, real estate agents and trade magazines were almost the only ones who could provide information on market prices of homes and land in a specific area. Today, technology has made it possible for any individual or professional to access this information almost without leaving home and get a general idea of how much their home might be worth.

What are the benefits of playing golf?

  1. Disconnection: Being surrounded by a natural environment and walking outdoors, you will feel how stress and anxiety will go down.
  2. Improved health. According to a study by Andrew Murray, a medical specialist in this sport, corroborates that golf helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and risk of fractures to not being a contact sport or risk. 
    It increases the ability to concentrate. To play this sport it is very important to get away from day-to-day responsibilities. The mind has to be focused on the movement to be executed, if you are thinking about something else, I can assure you that it will be difficult to execute a good swing.
  3. Coordination: Being a sport of concentration and precision will help you to improve the perception of your body.
  4. Suitable for everyone: One of the main advantages of golf is that no matter what age or physical level you are, it is always a good time to play or take up this fantastic sport.

Where to play golf in Mallorca?

Mallorca, apart from being one of the best places to live, offers more than 20 golf courses where you can play. As they are distributed all over the island, each one has a different setting. Moreover, thanks to its Mediterranean climate and almost 300 days of sunshine a year, it can be said that any time is a good time to go and play. However, from mid-June to mid-September, the central hours of the day are very hot and I advise you to avoid them. If this is not possible, remember to bring a good bottle of water to keep you hydrated.

Here is a list of the 10 most beautiful golf courses in Mallorca:

It is the only golf course in Mallorca located next to the sea that offers all the necessary amenities. The facilities and the location of the course, with stunning views of the bay of Alcudia, are two of its most outstanding qualities. Since 2022 they have implemented the Toptracer system on their long game driving range which will allow you to have the necessary information about the distance, speed and whereabouts of the ball. It can be defined as a real hole for all golf lovers.

We advise you to relax with a cool drink on the terrace of the restaurant while contemplating the scenery after a round of golf.

How to choose your golf course

  1. Location: The location of the golf course is important because it determines how easy it will be to get there. Unless you don’t want to change your surroundings and views.
  2. Difficulty level: if you are new to the sport or want to practice a little before playing at higher levels, consider playing an easier course first so that your skills can develop gradually and steadily over time.
  3. Cost: depending on the facilities of the golf course and the prestige of the club, prices can vary widely and this is something worth considering before making a commitment as it can have an impact on how often you play.
  4. Time of day: this depends very much on the season and the length of daylight. In Mallorca, for example, we do not advise you to play in summer during the warm hours such as midday.

The advantages of playing golf in Mallorca

Choosing any golf course in Mallorca is always a certainty for a day out with friends and family. Just a few hours by plane from anywhere in Europe, with 300 days of sunshine a year, the Mediterranean climate and a natural environment that is absolutely stunning, make the island the perfect destination for golfers of all levels.
