The island of Mallorca is synonymous with a plethora of sporting activities. Some of the world’s most distinguished cyclists and some….less distinguished, regularly visit the island to enjoy those undulating mountain roads and temperate climate that lends itself to such a sport. Rock climbers also take full advantage of the island’s extreme and breathtaking mountainous topography, with most of the rock climbing in Mallorca being centred around the impressive Tramuntana Mountain range or along the beautiful coastline. Finally let’s not forget the fact that this paradise is an island and so you are never too far from that blue, placid mediterranean sea that is so perfect for watersports such as Scuba Diving, Kayaking, windsurfing, paddle surfing, just to name a few.
Thanks to the island’s warm and sunny climate and few rainy days, golf’s popularity on Mallorca has grown tenfold in recent years and has been given special encouragement. This golfer’s paradise offers 23 top-designed courses, with pro shop facilities and PGA professional golf instructors which all make Mallorca one of Europe’s premier golfing holiday destinations. Here at Son Julia Country House & Spa, we pride ourselves on attending to our guests’ every wish and need and for those who come to Mallorca to enjoy 18 holes (or more) then there are few places better located or that better cater to your needs. Located just 5 minutes from two top golf courses and 15 minutes from the world-renowned Son Gual golf club you won’t have to waste any precious ‘teeing off’ time and to our guests we can offer special discounted green fees (up to 10%) and even preferential tee times at many of the top courses.
Son Antem Golf Course
Located just 5 minutes from our Boutique hotel in Llucmayor you will find the Son Antem Golf Club. The golf club is comprised of two 18-hole courses that were designed by the celebrated Francisco López Segalés, one of Spain’s leading course designers. With Son Antem, Segalés has received rave reviews from professional golfers and amateur ones alike. Having opened in September 2001, olive and almond trees adorn this beautiful golf course set in the heart of the Mallorcan countryside with spectacular views of the Randa Mountain. This course provides an exciting challenge for golfers with tight fairways and a woodland surrounding and it has even played host to several key European golf tournaments, including the Audi Quattro Cup and the Mallorca Cup.
Son Gual is one of our favourite golf courses on the island. This private, family-run golf club is set on 156 hectares of beautiful Mediterranean landscape just 15 minutes away from our Country House Hotel. Designed by Thomas Himmel, this challenging course has been considered one of the top courses on the island since its opening in 2007. It combines perfectly positioned bunkers with a variety of water hazards, to keep even the most experienced golfer on their toes.
Maioris Golf Club is located 15 minutes west of Palma de Mallorca on the south coast, not far from our charming hotel and is characterised by the traditional Mallorcan landscape and Mediterranean vegetation with pine forests and marshland. This lengthy course (6347 metres) that was created in 2006 by Dieter Cabus, is of a championship standard and the perfect place for big-hitters to unleash their long drives with forgiving wide fairways.
So for those looking to get away from the stress and strain of work and who want to enjoy a few days exploring the fairways of this paradise island, then there is no better place to stay than the delightful 15th century mansion of Son Julia. This is why we have listened to our guests’ needs and desires and that’s why on request we have put together a special package dedicated to Golf Holidays.
