GREAT MALLORCA GOLF OFFERS
Mallorca’s top two golf courses have teamed up with one of the island’s best hotels to offer great-value packages.
Prices start from €471.80 (approx £380) per person, for a three-night stay with four rounds of golf.
Golfers can take advantage of a great deal to play both Son Gual – host to the 2009 Mallorca Senior Open and regularly ranked one of Spain’s top courses – and Alcanada, one of Europe’s most highly decorated tracks, after they partnered with the four-star Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous, close to the luxury yacht harbour of Puerto Portals.
A three-night, bed-and-breakfast break stay at the Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous, in September and October 2014, including two green fees at each of Alcanada and Son Gual, costs from just €471.80 per person, based on two people sharing a double room.
Meanwhile, a five-night, bed-and-breakfast stay, again including two rounds of golf at each prestigious course, starts from only €623 per person, based on two people sharing a double room.
Club de Golf Alcanada, in the north of Mallorca, was voted ‘favourite course in Europe’ for an unprecedented fifth successive year in 2013 by readers of leading German magazine Golf Journal, in its annual travel awards, regarded as the German ‘golf Oscars’.
The Robert Trent Jones Jr-designed course, is situated in the north region of Mallorca, in a breathtaking location overlooking the Bay of Alcudia, and offers magnificent mountain and sea views.
The €30m Son Gual golf course opened only in 2007 and was ranked the eighth-best course in Spain and the top venue in Mallorca in Golf World’s benchmark Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe 2014 rankings.
It features large lakes, 66 bunkers, 800 olive trees – some more than a thousand years old – wild flowers in the rough areas and vineyards in several areas around the course.
In May 2009 it hosted the Mallorca Senior Open and received gushing praise from a number of participants – former Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam even compared the greens to those at Augusta National.
The delightful African-influenced Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous – set amid Bendinat’s Royal Golf Course – offers 118 comfortable rooms and suites, two exquisite restaurants, a cosy golf bar, spa area with indoor and outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, saunas, steam bath and gym, all set within spacious grounds with large sun lawns, and all less than a 20-minute drive from the airport.
