Son Muntaner

The Clubhouse at Son Muntaner.

Designer: Kurt Rossknecht

Nestled between the hills of Son Vida and the island's capital of Palma, the Arabella resort consists of three classic courses, Son Vida, Son Quint & Son Muntaner.

Son Muntaner was added in May 2000, when Kurt Rossknecht who renovated Son Vida, returned to work on a tougher longer companion for its sister course.

Son Muntaner is a player's course, and from the 1st hole you're confronted by difficult approach shots over water to bunkered greens. A slithering lake runs the length of the 2nd and 3rd holes, testing your accuracy on each shot.

Son Muntaner boasts Mallorca's oldest olive tree - "Sa Capitana" is said to be 1,000 years old. It stands near the 15th tee, so do try to avoid belting it with a golf ball!

The joy of playing here not only lies in having to shape the ball off the tee to get the ideal position for your second shot, but also in the size of the greens which offer the opportunity for varied pin positions, making the course play differently every day.

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

Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel

Since it first opened its doors in 1992, the Sheraton Mallorca has been the meeting point for passionate golfers and social travellers. Built to be The Golf Resort in Mallorca, this hotel sits right next to the 18th hole of the Son Vida golf course. Two additional golf courses were added by 2008, creating the largest golf resort in Spain with a total of 63 holes. (Three 18 hole courses, and one 9 hole pitch and putt course).
