Mallorca golf courses to get $2m upgrade

2016 05 Son Muntaner

Mallorca's golf clubs have capitalised on the island's soaring popularity with the announcement of more than €2m worth of investment in their courses.


The Spanish isle has already reported an increase in tourism in 2016 – with that likely to improve further thanks to notable upgrades at four of its leading golf facilities.

There are some big changes in the pipeline at the 36-hole resort near Mallorca's capital Palma. A new water-treatment plant is being built to enhance the irrigation on both courses, while four greens - two on each course - are set to be re-laid between June and September. There will also be further landscaping work and three of the lakes will be renovated to improve the general look.

Golf Son Muntaner has embarked on an ambitious plan to reseed its entire course with Celebration Bermudagrass to create better playing conditions and improve the maintenance. It’s currently closed until October but on its reopening later, golfers will experience smoother fairways and greens, while the course itself will require less water to keep it in perfect condition throughout the year.

Money, said to be €250,000, is being spent on updating greenkeeping machinery to reach even higher standards of maintenance on one of Mallorca's favourite courses. There will also be improvements to the irrigation and buggy paths, while a new halfway house - the Lighthouse Bar - is also set to be built.

The clubhouse, pro shop and club entrance have already been remodelled and updated. On the course itself, tees and fairways have been reshaped, new GPS buggies will arrive in August and the greenkeeping staff will use state-of-the-art machinery to help keep the course in pristine condition.
