Enjoy faultless golf in Mallorca

Sunshine is what most of us look for when booking our summer golfing getaway, and that is more or less guaranteed in the hugely popular Mallorca.

The Spanish island, which saw 23.1m passengers pass through Palma Airport in 2014, enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year with average temperatures rising to 25C, making it the perfect climate for visiting golfers.

And with 19 courses forming the Golf Course Association of Mallorca (ACGM) – eight of which have been introduced since the turn of the millennium – the isle is aiming to continue its emergence as a leading European golf destination in 2016.

At the forefront of this is the fact that Mallorca will host the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) from November 14-17, representing the ideal platform to showcase Mallorca as more than 600 golf tourism suppliers join 350 pre-qualified buyers and 100 international press representatives, who will fly in from across the globe.

“I feel very passionate about golf on Mallorca,” said Federico Knuchel, president of the ACGM. “We had 600,000 rounds in 2015 and the purpose of our association is to increase that number. We would like to increase it by 5% every year. Last year was one of the better years and generally, we are quite happy. But we always want more.

“We think Mallorca offers real quality and value for golfers and we’re hoping to show that to as many people as possible.”

The short flight times are one of the reasons why Mallorca is regarded as one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations, with both Alcanada and Son Gual considered to be among the top golf courses on the continent.

“Mallorca has long been heralded as one of Europe’s foremost golf destinations and it’s difficult to find fault in any aspect of the island’s golf offering,” said Andrew Smith, director of product at Your Golf Travel. “There is a great choice of golf courses all within close proximity of each other, fabulous year-round weather, frequent flights and so many other things for golfers to enjoy while visiting the island.”
