Canyamel Golf

The 18th hole & clubhouse at Canyamel Golf Course

Designer: José Gancedo

When Pepe Gancedo surveyed the beautiful countryside around Canyamel, he knew that he needed to spoil Mallorca as little as possible when designing the course. As a result, this course has been developed taking into account many of the existing features. The little house on the 9th hole was preserved as were the typical dry stone walls on the 7th, 13th, 14th and 15th, where they come into play across and adjacent to the fairways.

This is a course of two contrasting halves. The first nine holes are quite difficult, with Hole 5 offering a particularly excellent view of Menorca. The second nine holes are longer and flatter than the first, but make for an excellent and challenging round of golf.

The European PGA visited the course and proposed a series of modifications which have now been carried out. The PGA have classified Canyamel Golf Course as an ideal course for playing an Open event.

Among its facilities Canyamel Golf offers a double driving range for 40 people, 2 putting greens, a pitching green and a practice bunker. In addition to this, at the Club House there is a restaurant, showers and lockers and a lounge with video.

For discounted green fee prices, we recommend Simply Mallorca Golf.

If you're looking to play more than one round of golf at Canyamel, then there are many towns / resorts to choose from. We would particular recommend hotels in Cala Ratjada if you would like to stay in a resort popular with German visitors, or Cala Bona / Cala Millor if you would prefer to stay in resorts which have a more British feel to them. However, if you're looking for a very quiet beach resort, then you may wish to consider Canyamel. Links to all of the places mentioned can be found in the column on the left.
