Designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jnr, the 18-hole course opened in 2003 and underwent significant renovation in the winter of 2018. The layout blends naturally into the typical Majorcan landscape: as well as breathtaking sea views over the bay of Alcúdia and the small island of Alcanada (with the lighthouse from which the course derives its name and logo), players are surrounded by pine, old olive groves and oak trees throughout their round.
At 6,559m, the par-72 course is full of typical Trent Jones features: 58 well-placed greenside and fairway bunkers, challenging greens with hidden breaks, and difficult but fair tee shots make this golf course a must for all experienced golfers travelling to Mallorca.
Practice facilities include a roofed driving range and short game area. Since June 2022 Alcanada has been the first course on Mallorca to offer a driving range powered by Toptracer with the latest technology in ball tracking, allowing up to 10 players to collect important data about distance, ball speed and more. Private longest drive or nearest to the pin competitions can also be set up using this technology, adding a fun, competitive element to your practice of warm-up session. For those wanting to improve their game, the Golf Academy is also staffed by multilingual PGA instructors.
The clubhouse is a 200-year-old, carefully restored Majorcan stone mansion with a stunning terrace – a perfect place to review your scorecard over a drink with the distant glow of the lighthouse in the evening. Also housed here is the spacious Club de Golf Alcanada Restaurant, where you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere with excellent service and a menu that will leave no culinary desire unsatisfied.
The Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final supported by The R&A graced Alcanada in 2019 and 2022 and returned in 2023, where England’s Marco Penge enjoyed a comfortable win and topped the Road to Mallorca rankings. The event, the annual climax of the Challenge Tour, has already been confirmed for a return to Club de Golf Alcanada in 2024. For a serious game of golf on an immaculate 18-hole course, this is one not to miss on a visit to Mallorca.
