Comment: In our view this course should be ranked around 10th on the island. Problems with water supply in 2018 resulted in damage to the greens. However, new lakes have been constructed, which will be used to irrigate the greens during the Summer, and with a new management team we’re confident that this course will do well in 2019.
Son Termens is in an idyllic hillside location, between the village of S'Esglaieta and the Soller Road. It's 10km North of Palma on the way to Valldemossa.
The course was designed by the Harris group and Jose Rodriguez, and opened in 1998. This 5,598m (6,122 yards) par-70 course is known for its quick, smooth greens, and the abundance of wildlife, such as goats, and birds of prey, that can frequently be seen. The only building is the Mallorcan style clubhouse.
You'll find two lakes on the front-nine, and the steady rise in the course enables you to experience stunning views across the landscape.
Birdie opportunities abound, and it's enjoyable to play a well kept course that offers a chance to score well. The par-4 1st can be driven by the long hitter, while the course's two par-5s, the 5th and 6th, are reachable by the better player in two.
But, there are some demanding holes too. The 4th and 10th in particular are two punishing par-4's, played uphill to raised greens surrounded by bunkers. Both require good tee-shots if you're to reach the greens in two.
The most interesting hole at Son Termens is the par-4 2nd. A blind tee shot to a narrow fairway requires just an iron, leaving a 100-yard pitch to a green protected by water to the front and right, while a huge bunker awaits behind for the nervy golfer who hits his approach just a little too hard.
