The errant shot is much more likely to be punished by the intervention of one of the many evergreen oak, pine, olive, carob and palm trees that dot the course blocking the way to the pin. Holes 3 to 7 are undoubtedly different as narrow tree lined fairways venture into the hills and twist between the lakes and pines making this stretch the toughest test on the course.
The greens are subtly undulating and water is an enhancing feature on 6 holes. There is, however, always a range of shots on offer providing realistic options for both accomplished and more modest players.

All parts of the course give fine views of the pine clad mountains which protect the course from the worst of any winter storms and from many holes there are splendid views over the Bay of Cala Millor. At various times of the year, flowering oleanders and bougainvillea add to the colours and the numerous hares, ducks and other birdlife that abound add to the feeling that the course really is a special place.
Holes 3-7, which we call “The Pine Trap”, are quite narrow, cut out of the original pine forest, have significant changes in elevation, and are regarded by many as the most difficult
The course has a par of 72 and off back tees measures 5.844 metres for men (slope 140) and 4.937 metres for ladies (slope 133) When there are no official competitions, the tees are placed slightly forward and offer members and visitors the possibility to make a satisfactory round. Beautiful, challenging, correct and fun the golf course of Club de Golf Son Servera offers something for everyone.
