There are 24 golf courses in Mallorca, one for each level, with sea view, views to the Tramuntana mountains, hilly or flat. Today, I would like to introduce the Golf de Andratx, situated in the southwest of Mallorca, in the urbanization Camp de Mar. The luxurious Puerto de Andratx is just around the corner.
Arriving at the club house, just refurnished and enlarges, Niki welcomes you with a lovely smile. Scorecard and water are prepared and I start my round with the trolley. Please note, Golf de Andratx is very hilly, so a buggy is highly recommended.
The first 2 fairways lead towards Paguera, than you pass behind the golf resort to the 3rd and from fairway 4 on you get to quiet natural surroundings. Step by step the course leads uphill with course 6 GREEN MONSTER being the longest fairway in Spain. Happy when reaching the 8 (if you walk) because from now on it goes downhill, passing the fairway house situated facing the 8 and offering snacks and drinks. The next 4 courses are my favorite. They are more open and always downhill, still in the nature without seeing any of the urbanisation. On some points you can catch a view to the bay of Camp de Mar. When coming the 13 we get closer the the houses and complexes again and finish the 18 in front of the golf hotel.
After a fantastic round, take a drink at the chic club house where stars and vip meet.
Conclusion: Golf de Andratx is one of the hilly golf courses in Mallorca and one of the most difficult. You might lose some balls because the fairways are very close to forest and loads of lakes.
There had been a huge investment in grass, bunkers and ways and green fees are available at fair prices. Golf the Andratx is a lovely course for sporty people.
Every Thursday, there is a 9 hole competition starting at 5pm. Price of 35 € includes BBQ. Try it!
