Mallorca golf club set to thrive from European golf boom

Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca is set to capitalise on the golf boom in Europe, as travel restrictions are expected to ease in the coming months.

With so many leisure activities unavailable over the past year, participation numbers have grown across Europe with new golfers taking up the sport for the first time and others returning to it as well.

The number of passengers travelling to Mallorca was down by 80 per cent in 2020, but this should recover this summer and sites such as Club de Golf Alcanada are also popular for an Autumn holiday too.

Alcanada is widely regarded as one of the best courses in Spain with spectacular panoramic sea views over the Alcudia Bay towards its iconic picturesque lighthouse.

Robert Trent Jones Jnr designed the course and is a must for any golfer to experience. The course is regularly rated among Europe’s top 100 layouts and is a great test for players of all abilities.

"Golf seems to be experiencing a boom so we're hoping to benefit from this in the long run," said Kristoff Both, the director of golf at Club de Golf Alcanada.

"Although we have had very few international guests, we've seen a pick-up in new players and more participation in tournaments on the island.

"We have our members and the golfers on the island playing the course, which is in fantastic condition. But there are a lot of people who will be eager to start travelling again and will want to treat themselves when they can, whether that is in the summer or later in the year."

The venue was selected as the host venue for the European Challenge Tour Grand Final in November 2019, and it will be the host of the final of the PGA EuroPro Tour in October.
