Alcanada once again confirmed its position as one of the premier venues on the continent after being named the best course in Europe for a fourth consecutive year at the world’s leading travel trade show.
The stunning layout located in the north of Mallorca, which Golfmagic had the pleasure of playing last season, topped leading German magazine Golf Journal’s 2011 poll of most popular courses outside Germany.
“We are very proud that Alcanada has been singled out as one of Europe’s most popular courses for a fourth successive year and are determined to maintain our high standards in the future,” said Alcanada’s director of golf Kristoff Both.
Alcanada was the overwhelming winner of the award beating National Golf Club in Belek and Mallorca’s Arabella Golf Son Vida in the race for top honours, with the likes of Carya and Aphrodite Hills finishing further down the list.
The breathtaking 18-hole championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, which overlooks the Bay of Alcudia, blends naturally into the typical Mallorcan terrain and takes its name from an island with a lighthouse which is situated just off the shore, which can be seen from most of the holes.
In addition, the club boasts a centuries-old Mallorca clubhouse and comprehensive golf academy including a spacious short game area and covered driving range.
