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
Great course to play, but the slow
play towards the end of the round was
frustrating. In addition I did email the
club the following day regarding where
the Course Marshall was, but I received
no reply. I have since found out
that the Marshall finishes at 2:30!! I
have played this course before and
although very good and challenging I
think it is expensive, but I guess on an
island you have a captive audience. Nov
The general condition of the course
and especially the greens was excellent.
The staff were also very welcoming and
we ate on the terrace afterwards, the
menu of the day at 19.95 euro which
included a bottle of wine between two
was extremely good value. The only
negative was that buggies were
restricted to the cart paths which did
slow play a little, the second time we
played we used electric trollies which
was much better. Oct 12
The whole experience from the time we
arrived until we left this course was
very good. The view against the
Mediterranean sea was spectacular.
The course was in immaculate
condition with stunning sea and course
views. The greens were fast and true.
Beautifully converted clubhouse with
high quality finish and facilities.
Professional staff and high attention to
the small details that make a
difference. Loved it! May 12
From the moment we arrived at the
course we were made to feel welcome. The
course was beautiful with stunning views
on nearly every hole. This is probably
the best golf course I have ever played.
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
In superb condition. Friendly clubhouse. Greens were far too good for us but what a challenge! May 12
The club and course project quality from the moment you arrive through the entrance gates. The views from the course are memorable. May 12

Course was far superior to Pula and Canyamel in terms of layout, location and upkeep. Sep 11
Excellent all 'round service from Golf Shop, Marshall, Bar etc., very welcoming. Views spectacular. July 11
There is exceptional detail in the presentation of not only the course, but also all the other facilities. May 11
The course was set up to be tough for our party; very quick sloping greens which made scoring difficult - BUT we were impressed with the complete package. Apr 11
The condition of the course was immaculate. It was very quiet, and lunch on the terrace overlooking Alcudia bay was to die for. Oct 10
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
Difficult, but immaculate greens; wonderful views. Course was maintained to the highest standards. Very friendly staff. Oct 10
Potential championship course. Very professional attitude at the club, course well laid out and maintained. Jun 10
Very nice ambiance, and an excellent golf course. Staff were very friendly, although at 93€ it was slightly overpriced. Jun 10
The general condition of the course was outstanding. The greens very superb - fast but evenly paced. We couldn't read them, and we're all single figure handicap. May 10
Friendly staff, excellent condition. Good test of golf for a 14 and 5 handicapper. Apr 10

It is always a delight to play. It is in perfect condition and the staff most helpful. The food is fantastic and good value. Jul 09
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
The course was in superb condition. It was the first time we had played at Alcanada and all of our party, without exception, enjoyed it. June 08
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
Lush fairways; slick greens; great views; lovely clubhouse; the company of five good friends. Oct 07
The layout, the good fairways, the views and the general speed of play. Also buggies not needed. Oct 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.
The course was the best I have ever played on. The fairways and greens were immaculate and the scenery was fantastic. Also a very friendly English chap selling drinks on the course was giving us tips on most of the holes. Will definitely play there again in the future. Oct 07.
Alcanada is a great course with fantastic views, but it is very hilly so I would recommend a buggy. Sep 07.
Immaculate condition, great scenery, long but not too difficult. Good rate through Simply Mallorca Golf. Sep 07
