Son Muntaner Golf

18 Holes

The beauty of this golf course is not only in its surroundings and manicured flowered gardens which have been design to be at Bloom all year around, but also in the design of the fairways. Here it does not matter whether your handicap is a double o a single figured one. It is a very pretty pleasant course. The downside to it is that you have to be a guest at either the Castillo Son Vida or the Arabella Sheraton to be able to play here. “The par 5 on 15th hole (517 mts) is a bit of a monster when the wind is unfavourable and the approach shot requires extra precision.”
