Club de Golf Alcanada has announced details of an ambitious €600,000 renovation project scheduled for this winter.
Alcanada, widely considered to be the No.1 course in Mallorca, will overhaul all 18 of its greens with state-of-the-art Tee-1 bentgrass Tee-1 grass, whilst also replacing the sand in every bunker, repair cart paths, upgrade 3,000 metres of the underground irrigation system, and improve the pro shop.
Owned by car giants Porsche, the club has already successfully re-laid the practice greens with the new bentgrass, a superior variety of seed that is used at famous clubs such as Ryder Cup host venues Valderrama and Le Golf National.
Director of golf course grounds Borja Azpilicueta is excited by the planned changes and believes that it will make Alcanada’s future “brighter than ever”.
“When we are finished the greens will be of fantastic quality,” he said. “I cannot wait to start. The course is already 15 years old and certain things do need to be upgraded as we have to keep improving the quality and I am confident that next spring the course will look remarkable.
“Golf is a very competitive industry – you can’t stand still. The greens are the most important part of a course and this new grass will produce top-quality greens, as good as you will find anywhere.
