Mallorca’s second oldest course, designed by John Harris, was inaugurated in 1967, with nine holes and is located on the east coast of the island, 60km from the capital Palma. Son Servera Golf was developed by a group of friends, including British players. Such is the popularity of the course that many golfers over the years have chosen to play back-to-back nine holes here, to give them the desired 18-hole round but, in February 2012, Son Servera was expanded to 18 holes.
The devastating storms of November 2001 destroyed more than 2,000 pine trees here, but successful planting of native trees including olive, carob and holm oak means that this is still a nicely wooded course, with the beautiful backdrop of the Serra de Calicant hills.
Narrow fairways mean that you need to tee off accurately, and straight as an arrow; the course is well-bunkered. At the 8th and 9th, the course plays right by the Mediterranean. One of the course lakes is overlooked by the attractive clubhouse and, at times, players might need to wait for some of the honorary members to pass by … a family of ducks!
