Mallorca’s prestigious Son Vida estate is home to some excellent golf courses under the umbrella of Arabella Golf Mallorca – one of which is the magnificent 18-hole Son Muntaner, just 10 minutes’ drive from Palma de Mallorca. The course, with its ancient olive trees and attractive year-round flowers, was designed by Kurt Rossknecht and inaugurated in May 2000. It features wide fairways, a variety of holes and extensive greens. There’s water the length of the par 5 second and par 4 third, and a small lake to the right of the sixth.
As you’d expect, the conditions here are immaculate, which makes the course a popular location for prestigious tournaments. Among the open events organised at Son Muntaner in 2012 are the Bulgari, Loewe, and Mont Blanc tournaments; the course is also the venue for the tournament Golf con Corazón, which supports charities on the island.
The course is suitable for players of all abilities, but handicap certificate must be presented at check-in.
Practice facilities include putting green, pitching area, three practice holes, and driving range. There’s a well-stocked pro shop. Buggies have GPS fitted.
Other facilities include a beautiful clubhouse with restaurant that’s open all year round, offering a wide range of snacks and dishes, as well as a daily-changing menu. Want to combine some business with a round of golf? Son Muntaner has the banqueting room Sa Capitana for hire for seminars, meetings and private functions.
The Starwood group of hotels offers three well-located properties for visiting golfers who want to stay and play at Son Muntaner Golf: Castillo Hotel Son Vida, Sheraton Mallorca Arabella, and seafront St Regis Mardavall Mallorca.
