“Probably the best course on the Island...”
5 of 5 bubbles Review of Alcanada Golf Club

Attraction details
Owner description: This Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed 18-hole golf course opened in 2003. Situated in the northern part of the mediterranean island of Mallorca, Alcanada is located right by the sea. The 6.499 meter long course blends naturally into the typical mallorcan terrain. The namegiving island with its lighthouse, just off the shore, can be seen from most of the holes. Apart from the splendid sea view, the players are surrounded by pine and olive groves. Even though a young course, Alcanada is already recognized by a number of well known golf magazines and golf guides as one of the finest courses in Spain and Europe.

“Probably the best course on the Island...”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

A tough challenge, which is reflected in the course "slope", with a very different feel between the front 9 and back 9 holes. Very fast greens, which can be up to 10 and 11 plus "on the stimp". Amazing views on many of the holes. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful.

“It's a must play”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Played the course in June 2012 and having played several golf courses in Mallorca, this is definitely one of the best.The ocean views from almost every hole are spectacular. Holes 1-5 form an inland loop, meandering through mature trees, and it's when you reach the elevated tee of the 7th hole that you really appreciate the expanse of the course and its stunning location. It's a challenging course, fairly heavily bunkered, but it's the huge greens that are likely to cause you the most problems as they are not the easiest to read. You'll certainly receive a warm welcome at Alcanada - it's highly recommended.

“Top golf course !!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This really is right up there as one of the best courses on the island, if not THE best !! The views are stunning, right across the bay, with the lighthouse - it really has got it all ! It's a great course which has it's challenging moments, but isn't going to beat you up if you're an "average" golfer either. I loved it.

As for the food in the restaurant.....this is NOT to be missed. Incredibly good !!

If you're considering golf in Mallorca, then I recommend a visit to Alcanada.
