Mallorca is a Golfers Paradise

Surrounded by beaches and nature

The Island of Mallorca has long been a favourite place for Golfers and who could argue as to why, with an abundance of courses, there being over 20 on this little island which takes an hour and a half to drive from one side to the other, there will never be far to travel for great golfing opportunities for all levels of skill.

The warm Mediterranean Climate and naturally idyllic surroundings provide ideal playing conditions and over 300 days of sunshine a year make Mallorca a Golfers paradise all year round.

Whilst playing golf in Mallorca, you can take in the spectacular views of the azure waters of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea or of the dramatic background of the Tramuntana Mountain Range and with championship courses and sophisticated and elegant golf clubs, one can certainly practice that swing in style.

About Golf Clubs in Mallorca

All but a few of the clubs are open to non-members to cater for the thousands of tourists who flock to this enchanting island to combine their annual holiday with a few rounds in a breath-taking setting, or the many European Golf societies who organise weekend golf breaks at some of the world class courses enjoyed on Mallorca.

The majority of the clubs have a driving range, for practice shots and most will have Special Offers throughout the year and of course the luxurious and lavish surroundings for that well-earned welcome of the 19th hole!

Below is a brief synopsis of the golf courses on the island that are open to the public along with contact details and a price guide.
