COVID-19 SITUATION IN MALLORCA
The current pandemic situation in Mallorca remains very stable and under control. In fact, the President of the Government of the Balearic Islands has announced that May will signal the last phase of de-escalation, with a return to normality in June. Therefore, the restrictions are being lifted, and as proof of this, bars and restaurants can now open their terraces all day long.
As far as golf in Mallorca is concerned, the island’s golf courses are still in strict compliance with all the safety protocols and regulations established in the fight against COVID-19.
We can’t wait to see you all!
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN MALLORCA?
At this time of year, the island comes very close to perfection. The sunshine in May provides ideal days for enjoying the outdoors and exploring the island, or simply relaxing becomes a true delight.
In May and June, the days are longer, and the temperatures rise slightly. Summer is just around the corner, and the thermometers usually reach over 20ºC.
All these factors make the situation ideal for golf and all kinds of outdoor activities.
The good weather at this time of year allows you to swim in the sea and visit the many beaches and coves along the island’s coastline.

Marriott Golf Son Antem shows off its bermuda greens
The East course at Marriott Golf Son Antem has recently had its 18 greens re-laid. A new type of grass has been chosen in Mallorca for the greens: the MiniVerde Bermuda.
This grass is more resistant, sustainable and environmentally friendly. At the same time, it will better resist player traffic while recovering more quickly from damage caused by divots, shoes, carts, etc…
Mini Bermuda’s resilience will considerably reduce water consumption and the need to apply chemicals.
Putting on mini Bermuda will bring a new feeling, and the evenness of this surface will provide ball speed and firmness.
As part of the same project, new greens have been restored to their original design, increasing the surface area by 25%.

Following our sustainability programme, Green Evolution, we have also replaced water bottles in our restaurants with reusable glass bottles personalized with our logo.

Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous open since March
Something is happening on Mallorca, life is returning and with the Mediterranean lightness, the golf tourists are also coming back. The Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous is convinced of this and the booking figures prove it.
The resort, located in the middle of the Bendinat golf course, already on 19 March 2021 and will stay open.
“We are a little earlier than others, but our loyal guests can hardly wait to come,” says Carolina Cordes. According to the hotel director, those who offered exceptional service and were more than just holiday hotels in the past are now paying off.
“We are a resort and a second home at the same time. Our guests come several times a year. There is almost a family relationship,” Cordes says.
Indeed, the Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous is different from others on Mallorca. With its colonial architecture and loving furnishings, the hotel is reminiscent of a stylish lodge in Africa. Dark, elegant woods, a lush Mediterranean garden and the proximity to Palma make the resort the ideal base for golfers, wellness fans, active holidaymakers and families.
Both, the restaurant and the wellness area are open.

When we decided to start this project in 2019, our aim was to offer our most select clients a hotel with personality, with a broad orientation towards the client and the whole experience that a client should enjoy.
To do so, we decided to invest in the remodeling of an old convent, a magical and indescribable place located in Capdepera.
In 2020 COVID arrived, a virus that forced our kitchen, our rooms, our team and our hotel to close its doors to make way for the pandemic.
But after this long wait, we are pleased to announce that the doors of our charming little hotel will be open to you from the 30th of April 2021.
We are at your disposal from May 19th with a renewed menu in our charming Restaurant.
We are very happy to announce our reopening on May 1st, after such a difficult year for everyone.

This season’s big news is the arrival of ROKA restaurant, part of the ZUMA restaurant family, at Cap Vermell Grand Hotel. This select, world-famous Japanese restaurant has chosen Mallorca as the location for its first restaurant in Spain, which will open its doors as a pop-up restaurant from the 1st of July until the 12th of September.
ROKA MALLORCA is a unique opportunity to sample the internationally renowned Japanese robatayaki cuisine. This ancestral oriental technique involves cooking on a charcoal grill, where diners sit and watch their dishes being prepared in front of them.
This is a true culinary extravaganza that will have almost 600 square metres of open-air space at Cap Vermell Gran Hotel to seat more than 100 diners. All of this will be accompanied by a selection of music, chosen exclusively for the ROKA MALLORCA experience, which will be played by a live DJ every night.
ROKA Mallorca will offer not only award-winning cuisine but also exclusive and world-famous cocktails such as ‘ichigo kub’ and full-bodied flavours with gin, strawberry mirin, Aperol, Absinthe and lime, as well as many others. The goal is to offer an authentic ROKA Mallorca Experience and enjoy a relaxing sunset or a romantic dinner surrounded by good company.
We have to point out that there are currently only 6 ROKA restaurants worldwide located in London and Dubai and, soon, in Cap Vermell Grand Hotel.
THE PRO’S CORNER. TIP OF THE MONTH!
Slice, shank or off the heel. Diagnosis and correction.
I often come across golfers who can’t stop hitting the ball low and right, and they don’t know why or are convinced that it is because they hit it on the toe of the club.
In this situation, I recommend placing 3 balls together in a line perpendicular to the feet, then removing the middle ball, and try hitting only the first or closest ball to the feet. If you hit both, then you know that the tendency is to hit off the heel. If you only hit the first one and the mis-hit disappears, it will also mean that the mis-hit was off the heel, and if the ball continues to go off to the right, it is almost certainly a hit off the toe.
If you have a lot of difficulty hitting only the first ball, I recommend seeking advice from a professional as there may be a technical problem associated with it. If you do not hit the second ball and the flaw disappears then, it may be related to a coordination problem, and it would be better to work with both balls and make a progressive transition to hitting just one ball.
