Golf holidays in Puerto Pollensa beckon experienced serious golfers to the following two exceptional courses out of the 19 golf courses on the island. Celebrities who come here to golf in this paradise have included Jack Nicholson and Michael Douglas.
Club de Golf Alcanada is in the northern portion of the island of Majorca, is near Alcudia 60 km north of Palma, and is considered one of the most beautiful of Spain’s golf courses. The magnificent views from almost every hole of this year-round course and from the terrace of its fine-dining restaurant include the Bay and Island of Alcanada with its lighthouse as well as the Sierra de Lavante mountains. It is also Majorca’s only golf course that is right by the Mediterranean Sea and gently slopes down to the shore. You can also see sail boats floating in the sea.
The 18-hole course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and his son. It was opened in October 2003. It has 58 greenside and fairway bunkers, fair but rather difficult tee shots, right and left dog legs, a challenging variety of greens, hills, and features trees such as olive, oak, and pine. The longest par 5 is over 616 yards, and the shortest par 3 is only 160 yards. The course is in an environmentally sensitive area with a variety of wild life and rare birds, which are predominant especially in the early mornings. The Pro Shop is in a finca that is a century old. A special group package is offered for a minimum of 20 players.
Another marvelous-view golf course is Pollensa Golf with its 9 challenging approaches to the greens. The course has panoramic views over the Bays of Pollensa and Alcudia, two lakes, the Tramuntana mountains, olive groves, old oak trees, pine trees, and a nature reserve. The course is irrigated with purified water and is maintained in perfect condition.
Pollensa Golf offers a golf school with a golf professional, with a putting green and driving range as well as a pitching area. There is also a golf shop and an excellent restaurant and bar.
