A great selection of Mallorca golfcourses:
GOLF DE ANDRATX
Golf de Andratx is one of the most spectacular and most challenging courses on the island. The course features 60 bunkers, 7 lakes and fairly narrow fairways. Hole 6 is the longest hole in Spain and the one golfers can´t wait to play, measuring 609 meters from the championship tee. The course has a stunning landscape made of old olive groves and almond trees bordered by ancient Mallorca stone walls. The course is well run and well maintained, and the clubhouse has a nice Italian restaurant. A round at Golf de Andratx on foot is not the easiest due to large distances between green and tee so it is wise to choose a buggie. Claudia Schiffer, Michael Douglas and Boris Becker are a few celebrity members.

ROYAL GOLF DE BENDINAT
Royal Golf de Bendinat is located just outside the city of Palma in a large wooded valley next to the Bendinat Castle. In 1995, under the direction of the architect Martin Hawtree, the golf course was enlarged to accommodate 18 holes and a full grid of buggy paths was put in place. One of the most dramatic courses with sea views and beautiful holes. A driving range was added later and several improvements carried out. The course is short but very challenging and the Club House features excellent services and facilities which include views to hole 18 and a full schedule of events. The glamorous marina of Puerto Portals is only 2 km away.
