Golf Maioris, Mallorca is the vision of Romeo Sala, the owner of Pula Golf in Mallorca's North, and the German architect Dieter Cabus.

The 6309m, par 72 championship standard course has been built to cope with the demands of a hot Spanish summer and remain in excellent condition all year around.

The layout has been carved between pine , olive and carob trees in a classic Mallorcan landscape. Golfers will enjoy the challenge of a course that features four lakes and two island greens.

Golf Maioris begins with a gentle par 4, played to a green protected by three sand traps. This is merely a warm-up for sterner challenges although the track has been designed to offer playability to golfers of all levels. Unusually, pine trees are situated in the centre of the fairway at the 2nd hole and there is some clever design greenside. Steep run-offs right, left and to the rear of the putting surface make precise approach play a necessity.

The 4th is the first of Maioris' par 5's and features an island green which will surely become a signature of the course. Most of the golfers will be able to reach the this 539-yard hole in two, but for bigger hitters the margin for error between safety and water is slim.

The par-3, 13th is another classic hole. Spanning 166 yards, the green is set over water and is defended by a carob tree and a series of moulding. You will need to commit completely to you shot to succeed here - a timid approach will be doomed to a watery grave.

This course's location west of Palma does not make it easily accessible to everyone. However, if you're coming over for a short stay, and want to play a different set of courses, then why not consider staying either in Ca'n Pastilla or Playa de Palma. There's a wdie range of hotels to suite everyone's requirements in these two resorts alone.
