Fancy experiencing some winter sun in Majorca?


Winter sunshine golf on the island’s top two courses is on offer as one of Majorca’s best hotel’s hosts a unique amateur tournament in November.

The 3rd annual Lindner Mallorca Golf Trophy takes place from November 26-29 and includes golf at both Son Gual and Club de Golf Alcanada (pictured) – by common consent the island’s best courses – and three nights’ B&B at the four-star Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous.

The entry fee for the tournament also includes use of a trolley on both days, two dinners at the hotel, a gala ceremony at Alcanada’s clubhouse – which includes beverages – and transport to and from the golf courses to the hotel. The event itself is an individual Stableford event, open to all amateur golfers.

The €30m Thomas Himmel-designed Son Gual course was acclaimed recently as ‘best golf course’ by the World of Leading Golf, a corporation representing some of the globe’s most distinctive clubs. And it has been turning heads since it opened in 2007.

It is listed as the eighth-best course in Spain and the top venue in Mallorca in Golf World‘s benchmark Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe 2014 rankings.

Alcanada’s 7,108-yard, Trent Jones Jnr-designed course has won a steady stream of awards since opening 12 years ago.

It sits in a breathtaking location overlooking the Bay of Alcudia. Adjacent to the Mediterranean – the only course next the sea on the island – Alcanada, which opened in October 2003, blends naturally into the typical Mallorcan terrain and takes its name from an island with a lighthouse, situated just offshore, which can be seen from most holes.

The delightful African-influenced Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous – set amid Bendinat’s Royal Golf Course and close by the luxury yacht harbour of Puerto Portals – offers 118 comfortable rooms and suites, two exquisite restaurants, a cosy golf bar, spa area with indoor and outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, saunas, steam bath and gym, all set within spacious grounds with large sun lawns – all less than a 20mins drive from the airport.
