Alcanada Golf Course - Club de Golf Alcanada

Alcanada Golf.

Alcanada Golf.

Two essential requirements for the creation of a top category golf course are: a privileged setting and a first rate architect. Both exist at Club de Golf Alcanada in Alcudia, Mallorca.  A virgin terrain gently slopes down towards the shoreline, with its pine, olive and oak trees and the mountains of the Sierra de Levante in the background.

Robert Trent Jones Snr. & Jnr. designed the beautiful Alcanada golf course, which opened in October 2003. Typical Trent Jones features, like 58 well placed green side fairway bunkers, challenging greens with hidden breaks, and difficult but fair tee shots, already make this golf course a must for all experienced golfers travelling to Mallorca.

Almost as spectacular as the design of the course is the view across the bay of Alcudia. Club de Golf Alcanada is the only course in Mallorca that is right by the sea. The lighthouse on the island of Alcanada, just 150m into the sea, forms part of the club's logo. The golf course is located in an environmentally important area, and you will frequently find a variety of wildlife and rare birds on the course, particularly in the early morning. The restaurant overlooks both the course and Alcudia bay, and is as inviting as the staff who will cater to your every need.

In 2007 Alcanada changed the tee-time intervals from 10 to 12 minutes. The 20% reduction in available tee-times means that you do have to plan ahead in order to secure your favoured slots. More importantly, the reduction in players has resulted in a reduction in the number of divots, pitch-marks and other damage to the course, meaning that it is in a better condition than many of the island's other golf courses. Furthermore, it is almost unheard of to spend longer than 4 and half hours playing 18 holes here.

At the end of 2012 Alcanada was voted as the best course on the island by clients of Simply Mallorca Golf, and in the last 5 years Alcanada has repeatedly been acknowledged as one of the best golf courses in Europe by many different golf magazines.  It is also a founding member of the “Leading Golf Courses of Spain”.

What Our Clients Say:

The whole experience was 1st class. We were very warmly welcomed, the course is beautifully appointed and very well maintained. Oct 15

Great design, views and friendly service. Fabulous terrace for food after. Sep 15

This is a superb course - a bit tricky for the higher handicap players - but a fantastic layout in a beautiful setting made this a great golfing experience enjoyed by the four of us. May 15

The layout and the staff at the course are second to none. Everyone at the course from office, through to the bar and green-keeping staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and want to make your visit an enjoyable one. Even the course being closed for 1 hour due to lightning strikes could not dampen our spirits. Simply the best course we have played anywhere in Europe so far. Nov 14

Beautiful layout, excellent service and in a very good condition. Even if it is a hard course to play, it is worth playing every time I will visit Mallorca. Oct 14

This was our 3rd trip to Alcanada in 5 years. The standard, from the reception in the Pro shop, through to the bar after the game was excellent throughout. The outstanding views across the bay are exceptional. Jul 14

The layout and views of Alcanada were superb. The tee's and fairways were like anything off the European tour! Greens were very quick as they had been rolled. It is expensive to play but if you can stretch to the extra euro's it's worth it. We ate on the clubhouse balcony afterwards - views and food excellent. Jun 14

It is a magnificent course of superb quality, but the surroundings, views, design and top service is what brings this course to another level. True top level European course! Apr 14

Truly superb. The condition of the course was wonderful. The greens were like glass and the starter deserves a mention for doing an excellent 'meet and explain' on the first tee. The teeing grounds (which last year were scrappy in comparison to the rest of the course) were very good. The whole set up could not be faulted. I have played 14 courses on the Island, this is my Number One! GPS in buggy very much appreciated. Good service in the bar. Oh yes and a final very nice touch was the engraved bag tag complimentary, provided at the end. Apr 14

A very interesting and challenging course. Many chances to play from different lies, and to hit shots you would not have the opportunity to play on other courses. Great playing from the elevated tees and stunning scenery looking out to the sea. Overall the course was in good condition. Enjoyed a nice cold beer and excellent lunch after the round. Service, and quality of the food in the clubhouse restaurant was excellent. Whilst green fees are on the expensive side it was well worth playing the course. A good experience overall from booking to playing. Oct 13

The course is very well designed and is based around the stunning bay of Alcudia, with a number of tee boxes set high and snaking down toward the lighthouse. From tee to green the course is immaculate and a challenge for any golfer. After which you can sit outside the clubhouse and receive excellent service. Jun 13

This is holiday golf at its best: stunning views, wide fairways, large greens, no rough to speak of, just enough interest on each hole to keep you honest, an excellent driving range (off grass if you want), two large practice pitching greens, with everything beautifully presented. The course is well designed to encourage the beginner yet challenge the expert: it is generous yet fair. The greens are welcoming, fast, true but tricky to read. It is still quiet enough for 12 minute intervals between tee times and no starts from the tenth, but keep your eye on this, as Alcanada is a feel-good course forgiving of the poor shot and is sure to become a favourite for golfers of all standards. There is a majestic club house housing a spike bar, outdoor terrace with far reaching views over the bay, stylish Pro’s shop, smart loos and all that jazz. For continental holiday golf it doesn’t get much better. One word of warning though - watch out for those pesky mosquitoes on the low lying 17th, they haven’t been trained to not bite the punters . . . yet. Nov 12

Its layout is superb. The facilities are excellent. They even gave us a medallion to celebrate our visit, as well as water, tees and pitch repairers. We thought the overall experience was very good. May 12

The best course we've ever played!!! Fairways, greens, restaurant, the whole complex, the view, everything... Absolutely unbelievable!!! Apr 12

We choose to play one course three times, in order to give us a chance to maximise its potential. Alcanada didn't disappoint. However, it is a very tough course which we were unable to get the better of. Oct 10

A very long and testing course in fantastic condition. Some of the views were excellent. The quality of the service from the minute I arrived was outstanding - the girl in the Pro-shop couldn't have been more helpful. Jul 09

Excellent quality of the greens and fairways; challenge of the course; 12 minute gap between tee times; the views! Apr 08

Just amazing condition; design, greens, great views over the bay – a fantastic course. One of the top 5 I have ever played anywhere in the world. Nice practice area as well and the yardages were accurate. Nov 07

Everything about it was done properly from the staff in the shop, to the starter on the first tee. The quality of the course, and of course the 19th! Oct 07.

Immaculate condition, great scenery, long but not too difficult. Good rate through Simply Mallorca Golf. Sep 07
