Comment: 2018 saw Son Muntaner rise by one place from 4th to 3rd. It’s an excellent and popular course, but was marked down marginally by our customers as ‘Speed of Play’ can be an issue during peak periods.
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. In 2016 they completely re-seeded the fairways with Bermuda Celebration grass, which has a blue-green colour, and copes exceptional well with the climate, and the footfall on this popular 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.
The course has an excellent terrace with a panoramic view over the golf course, where you can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat after your round.
