Golf Son Termens
Golf Son Termens
A hilly course surrounded by mountains with panoramic views towards the Bay of Palma. Set in a valley, it takes full advantage of its natural terrain and prides itself on its greens. Many of them are protected by bunkers, trees and ravines leaving very little margin for error.
On the coast . . .
Greens are relatively small and well protected; it is a course that requires accuracy over brute strength. Both front and back nine offer splendid views but for different reasons. Well worth a visit.
One of the most challenging courses in the Mediterranean. Old olive groves, almond trees and traditional Mallorcan stone walls & lakes provide the scenery whilst several extremely raised tees into some very narrow bunker filled fairways provide the challenge.
