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.
