In the lovely countryside of the northeast of Mallorca, Capdepera Golf is located between the castle-topped village of Capdepera and the attractive market town of Artà.
The beautiful 18-hole course was inaugurated in 1989 and was designed by the famous American course architect Dan Maples. Both accomplished and inexperienced golfers will find a challenge here. The fairway runs down an idyllic valley surrounded by the rocky hills of the Llevant, and the immaculately kept course offers probably everything the keen golfer could want. There are tight tee shots, a mix of long open and tight fairways, challenging wide greens, some double tier greens and six lakes.
The first six holes are reasonably flat – the odd dog leg and water hazard await the golfer – but the back nine is the more interesting half of the course and well worth waiting for: the 10th green is rather like an amphitheatre, and the 15th hole has in the past been voted Mallorca’s most beautiful, with panoramic views of the valley and the Mediterranean. The final half dozen holes are played amid the mountains of Artà.
There isn’t really one hole here that’s easy and after the closing three holes (some say that the 18th is one of Mallorca’s most testing) you’ll be more than ready to review your round of golf over a drink in the clubhouse.
The pro shop is located in the clubhouse, where you can also organise lessons with a professional golf instructor. Buggies are for hire and are allowed on the fairways.
Capdepera Golf has a Mallorcan-style clubhouse and its Roca Viva restaurant has a superb terrace with lovely mountain views. The restaurant can be hired for private functions for up to 200 people.
