Club de Golf Alcanada was voted the best golf course in Europe by visitors to igolf.eu for a sixth successive year.

The Mallorcan club beat St Andrews (8th), and Valderama (15th) to take top spot, after golfers from 42 countries were asked to name their three favourite European courses.

Kristoff Both, director of golf at Alcanada, said: "It is always a special feeling when golfers praise your course and to win this award in six successive years is astonishing, especially when you consider the venues we were up against. 

"Everybody at Alcanada continues to go that little bit extra to ensure all our members and guests receive five-star treatment wherever they are in the club and this accolade is testament to that fact. We are naturally delighted and would like to thank everybody who voted for us. 

"And, if you didn't vote for Alcanada because you've yet to visit, we look forward to welcoming you soon."

Opened for play 13 years ago, the 7,108-yard Robert Trent Jones Junior layout sits in the Bay of Alcanada, and is the only course on the island next to the sea.
