T Golf Calvià (formerly known as Golf de Poniente) is home to a highly regarded golf course, which now contends with the likes of Son Gual for top billing in Mallorca. This tree-lined parkland layout will test most facets of your game, offering a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges.
The course dates back to 1978 when English course designer Commander John Harris crafted what was then known as Golf de Poniente. Many regarded it a masterpiece and one of Harris's most inspired designs. Today T Golf Calvià is one of the oldest, highest rated and most popular courses on the Balearic island of Mallorca.
A two-year renovation (2020/21) has returned the layout to its original splendor, with good-width fairways and large greens making for a great challenge for any level of golfer. The holes run through beautiful rolling hills, with majestic pines, palms and olive trees, fifteen lakes and ponds, and numerous bunkers lining the way. For nature lovers, the flora and fauna on the course make it a real Mediterranean treat.
Pick of the holes: of special note are the views from the par-4 8th and 16th holes which are worth a visit alone and give the player an appreciation for the rugged beauty of this course and its natural surrounds.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
