In the southwest of Mallorca, in the resort of Camp de Mar, Golf de Andratx is a beautiful 18-hole course, inaugurated in 2000 and designed by Gleneagles Golf Development. It’s a popular venue for tournaments organised by some prestigious companies.
The course attracts a number of celebrity golfers, including the likes of Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Claudia Schiffer and Boris Becker, who have played here regularly during their stays on the island. It’s definitely a course for more experienced players, and considered one of the most challenging in the Mediterranean. The golfer is tested from the opening hole. Hole 6, at 609 metres from the championship tee, is the longest hole in Spain, and relished by keen golfers.
Aesthetic features of the course include old olive groves, almond trees and traditional Mallorcan stone walls, as well as seven ponds and lakes. Several extremely raised tees offer magnificent views of the coastline. There are some 60 bunkers, and some very narrow fairways.
There’s an excellent Pro Shop, stocking the latest golf fashions and equipment, and 300-metre driving range along with pitching, chipping and putting greens, and three practice bunkers.
Their Golf Academy is staffed by multilingual PGA Professionals, all with successful playing careers, who use the Explanar Training System.
The Golf de Andratx clubhouse restaurant ‘Campino’ serves high quality Italian cuisine and is open daily. The 60-seater restaurant has seating for an additional 120 on the sun terrace, which has views of the 18th hole, the waters of Camp de Mar and, at the right time of day, the fabulous setting sun.
