Although not immediately known as a golfers' resort, Mallorca does have over 17 good courses to choose from. These courses are dotted all over the island so you will never be far from one.
The courses are often set amid pine trees and olive groves, ensuring that golfers not only keep an eye on the beauty of the surroundings, but also need to concentrate to guide the ball around the trees.
The terrain is excitingly varied - from the rolling hills of Golf de Andratx to the sea-level fairways of the Poniente course. Most courses benefit from distinctive umbrella pine trees and as the pines grow year on year, the courses change to ensure constant variety.
In fact, there are many well-known faces who choose Mallorca to practice their favourite sport. The actors Michael Douglas and Jack Nicolson, the Spanish Government's former president Adolfo Suárez, the former president of South Africa, De Klerk, the football coaches Benjamin Toschak and Johan Cruyff, Princess Brigitta of Sweden and many faces important in Spanish and international banking, are clear exponents of the fascination awaiting in the golf courses of Mallorca.
