Son Gual is a beautiful private golf club.
Son Gual is a magnificent private club located on 156 hectares in the heart of a superb Mediterranean landscape. Visitors are welcomed with pleasure, but they must respect the club's etiquette rules to ensure that the exceptional quality of the course is maintained throughout the year.
The course opened in 2007, after a long period of design and development that makes this golf course a jewel of the region due to the quality of its greens and the exceptional layout. Located in the valley of the thousand windmills, the course is the work of former German amateur champion Thomas Himmel.
The course features one of the most beautiful Par 3 collections in Europe and an 18th hole that you will place at the top of your list if you play it. You will also not be disappointed by this Spanish garden which has the particularity of having more than 1,000 olive trees intelligently positioned.The golf course
Son Gual's course is accessible to all levels even if a few holes will challenge more than one! The difficulties of the course are quite varied and you will not fail to test your game with all the clubs available in your bag. Nevertheless, beware of greens. Their width is compensated by subtle slopes and a fast ball roll. You will need all your concentration to attack the flags and make pars. Be patient, you will be rewarded.
To get in shape, you can start your journey by admiring the view of the city of Palma but also of the Tramuntana mountains. Even if both par-3s are reachable, hole 4 will ask you for a precise approach. Don't be impressed by the majestic piece of water in hole 9 either; a par 3 that will remind you of Augusta's exceptional holes. Don't miss a break at hole 15 to admire the Palacio, which dates back to the First World War. The last hole is by far the icing on the cake. This hole does not forgive any mistakes on the fairway or the green. In any case, this course will allow you to test your level and concentration, rest assured.The Club House
Don't miss a walk on the terrace of the club house before your course to admire the view of the bais de palma and the Palacio.
You can also stop at the bar or restaurant and sip a glass of local wine on the menu.
