Golf and Santa Ponsa in Mallorca have been inextricably linked for decades, and people have been buying properties here in the resort of Santa Ponsa to have facilities for their favourite sport almost on their doorsteps. Golf Santa Ponsa is located on the quieter outskirts of the Calvià municipality resort, around 15 minutes’ drive from Palma.
Golf Santa Ponsa has three courses, the first inaugurated in 1977 and designed by Falco Nardi and José Gancedo. Santa Ponsa I & II are both 18-hole courses; Santa Ponsa III has nine holes.
Only Santa Ponsa I is open to the public; it covers an area of 73 hectares and has one of the longest holes in Europe – the 10th at 590 metres. It’s a long, wide and fairly flat course with indigenous trees and plants, water hazards and bunkers. Many national and international tournaments have been played here, including the Balearic Open, some six times.
Facilities here include pro shop, clubhouse, trolley and buggy hire, driving range, pitch and putt greens. Golf lessons are available. There’s also a swimming pool. At the heart of the course is the clubhouse and 4-star Hotel Golf Santa Ponsa, which has 10 double rooms and two suites. Guests enjoy a 50 % discount on their green fee.
Santa Ponsa II and III are private courses for members, owners of the Santa Ponsa Golf properties and invited guests.
