Son Muntaner Golf Course - Arabella Golf Son Muntaner

Logo - Son Muntaner Golf

Son Muntaner Golf, view towards clubhouse.

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 and Son Muntaner.

Son Muntaner Golf 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.

What Our Clients Say:

Wonderful service with free water and bananas and even free club cleaning service afterwards! The course was a treat with great looking interesting holes, and generally in really good condition. Oct 15

It was in a superb condition, the buggies were allowed on the fairways, the greens were superb, the practice facilities were very good, and service in the bar was speedy. This course is good for any handicap whether you are a 8 or a 24 handicap. May 14

The course was superb, both condition and layout, it would be in the top three of all courses we have ever played abroad, and there are a lot! The welcome was very very good including a FREE course planner, practice balls, banana and a bottle of water. They did not try and extract the last euro out of us! Mar 14

It is the best maintained, laid out, most enjoyable overall experience. It is at least the third time we have played the course, and it is consistently the best overall experience. Mar 14

A superb variation of holes with good greens, sensible hole layouts, good features and some imaginative elevated tee boxes. Also there is always a great service from the Caddy Masters with their attention to detail. Oct 13

You receive the friendliest of welcomes at Son Muntaner especially from the jolly and professional caddymaster who gives extra bananas to those clearly in need! The course is tremendous - a proper, tough golf course. The holes are well designed and require straight drives, especially from the back tees. It is immaculately presented and beautiful to behold, with all manner of wildlife around, but don’t be seduced, this is a difficult test of golf. The practice facilities are outstanding and included in the fee. There is a reassuring feel of a local golf club; juniors were being coached by the pro and there is a traditional menu in the bar which overlooks the course. It is difficult to fault Son Muntaner - it is a must for visiting golfers with lots of balls! Jul 13

The whole package from arrival; clubs sorted on to buggies, water, fruit & range tokens provided. Starter fantastic and made us feel welcome. Marshall on course great. Course was a proper challenge. All golf clubs cleaned after the golf. Food and service in Clubhouse afterwards - 1st class. Even the half way house was excellent. As an overall package, superb. May 13

It was in an excellent condition - fairways / greens / bunkers. It was a fair test for most players without over-stretching. It was a course suitable for medium handicap players. The course views from the clubhouse made a spectacular backdrop while having lunch. May 13

Condition of course was excellent. Starter was friendly and very helpful as always. GPS easy. Views stunning. Hire clubs perfect. Pro-shop staff charming. Sep 12

The quality of the course, the staff, the welcome, the food and the overall ambiance, were absolutely excellent. Jun 12

Son Muntaner offers challenges. Long and spacious fairways, greens are big and fast. I wonder why Son Muntaner is not ranked any higher among Spanish golf courses - it definitely it should be! May 12

The course was tight but fair and a real challenge for the two scratch golfers in our party. May 12

All the practice facilities and the course were in mint condition as work was being carried out all the time - plus refreshments came around on a buggy as we played. Oct 11

Just that little bit better than the other three courses we played. Fantastic condition, lovely greens and approaches, interesting holes at every turn. Jun 11

The course is kept in perfect order. Difficult, but still enjoyable for an 18 handicapper. Apr 11

Good set-up, good greens, very nice clubhouse & free range balls! May 10

It wasn't as tight as Son Vida, and slightly harder than Son Quint. So a good balance. May 10

Good layout. Had to use all the bag to get around as opposed to drive and Wedge / 9 Iron. Great condition and lovely clubhouse. Apr 10

Good course condition, excellent value through Simply Mallorca Golf. Interesting, but not too difficult. Apr 10

The way we were greeted and dealt with by the shop, Caddy Master and Marshall was first class. Despite the previous bad weather buggies were allowed onto the fairways at right angles which not only 'saves legs' but also speeds up play. The course was in excellent condition and the whole day was just superb. Oct 09

Very good practice facilities, good staff with a positive attitude.  Good conditions on the greens and fairway. Sep 09

The layout was superb, very tough. Rough was exactly that - very hard to play out of as very thick coarse grass.  Fairways and greens were superb.  Sep 09

A little more thought has gone into course design, a few more signature (memorable) holes than others.  Jun 09

Not too challenging, seemed well run by course officials, excellent quality of hire clubs with new-ish buggy with GPS. Jun 08

The best of the 12 courses I've played in Mallorca. Beautiful fairways; and overall layout of the course. Quite a lot of water, which is uncommon in Mallorca. May 08

A fantastic set up. I have played over 400 courses all over the world and I rank it in my 20 for sure. Oct 07

The whole setup was very classy, including the course, new GPS buggies, the terrace overlooking the course; the whole experience.  Sep 07
