“I really liked the course. It’s a bit like Augusta” – Masters winner Ian Woosnam
Son Gual is a challenging, well thought out course amid gently rolling terrain and with plenty of strategically placed bunkers. The course is designed to be generous, but stretching to 6621m off the back of four tees and with a variety of water hazards it can test the best golfer.
The spectacular layout winds through hills, olive groves and vineyards, with neighbouring fields of colourful wild flowers and some of the best views in Mallorca.
Son Gual is laid out in two very distinctive halves, the front nine running along the extremity of the estate, with the second encompassed within its centre. The estate's Palacio is perched atop the course, guarding the estate.
The large greens, with subtle breaks and borrows, are designed to entice golfers into going for the pin. Cleverly crafted approach and run-off areas, however, demand your concentration and short game skills.
