The San Roque Club (Old course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1991

The San Roque Club (Old course): The opening hole, a good-length par-4 with out of bounds on both sides, signals some of the challenges that lie in wait on San Roque's testing and always interesting Old Course. You will also quickly get a good view of the luxury villas that border some of the course, the undulation of many of the holes, the tightness of the fairways and the sheer golfing spectacle of this excellent layout. Further spice is added with the occasional use of water hazards, especially on the back-nine, while good quality bunkering is present throughout. The middle part of the back-nine loops around a small hill, giving you a respite from the water hazards, much needed before you tackle the par-5 17th and then the signature hole, the very demanding par-4 18th (where many a round has come to a high-scoring and watery end). Usually presented in tip-top condition, this is a course to rival some of the best in Europe and if that wasn't enough, it has now been joined by San Roque's equally impressive New Course. A fabulous 36-hole venue providing one of the best golfing days out in Spain.

Golf Son Gual

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.
