When we practice a sport, the logical choice is to pick the right place both near to our house and when we are on vacations. This can vary according to it, but if it comes to the most popular option between entrepreneurs, the best elements to make a course perfect is its difficulty level, landscapes, and commodities. And Alcanada golf in Majorca provides the right combination of them.
It is located in the Bay of Alcudia, in the northern part, and it receives its name from an island with a lighthouse near to the shore. It was designed by the architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and it opened just in 2003, making it a relatively recent place. However, it has become quite popular in Europe, and it has been recognized in several magazines and guides.
It is truly a magical place to behold, and it deserves, at the very least, one visit, if not more. The views of the coast are breathtaking, and mixed with the green ambience that olives and pines grow recreate, it is impossible to not feel relaxed and let problems aside.
The game itself is a challenge to both amateurs and professional players, since the soft hills and the sea wind make necessary to calculate carefully each swing and plan the best strategy to get a good score. However, those who do not feel to the height of the challenge can train before.
The installations include an academy with several facilities to improve their shots and overall strategy, thanks to the use of the latest technology. It also counts with professional teachers and classes in Spanish, English, German, French and Dutch.
Planning the perfect day
If you want to play the full course, it is recommendable that you make a reservation before to assure the chance to enjoy the full day. If you are short of time, however, you can be there during just nine holes after the noon.
In both cases, you can visit the pro shop to buy all the equipment you are lacking, and proceed to play afterwards. Midway through your game, visit The Lighthouse Club to replenish your forces and eat your snack, and finally, close the day with a delightful typical meal in the restaurant in the club house as the ideal end.
