Mallorca Golf Courses

There are now more than 20 golf courses around the coast of Mallorca with others under construction. Most of them are located in the south west of the island with close proximity to Palma but others can be found in the north and east. The one thing they all have in common is the fantastic sunny and dry climate allowing golfers to play all year round. For those who are used to playing golf in the cold and wet of a northern European winter it will be a real luxury to play on a Mallorcan winter’s day.

There are Mallorca golf courses for golfers of all levels set in beautiful surroundings with magnificent views of the sea and mountains and many with hotels right next to them. Here we have tried to list all of the golf courses in Mallorca with some details about each one. We have given the par and length of each of them according to competition play so these will vary depending on which tee each golfer uses.
