About the Island
The Balearic Islands are an archipelago off the coast of eastern Spain, in the Mediterranean. Mallorca (Majorca), the largest island, is known for its beaches, scenic coastline and the Serra de Tramuntana mountains to the north. Palma, the capital city, is known for its Gothic cathedral with an altar canopy by modern architect Antoni GaudÃ, and Almudaina, a Moorish royal palace.
Explore Mallorca’s rich cultural history by visiting its numerous museums, or take a food tour of its restaurants to sample local food and wine. Of course, the best way to experience your vacation is to simply relax and appreciate the lush beauty that surrounds you.
What we love
We love Mallorca for it’s breathtaking scenery and beautiful beaches – especially along the mountainous north-west coast – where you can discovery numerous small bays and costal towns.Â Marriott’s Club Son Antem, is a luxurious retreat off the south-east coast of Spain, surrounded by rugged mountain cliffs, sheltered coves and the sparkling beauty of the Mediterranean Sea.Â We love to split our time between chilling out in the resort and exploring the island.
About the Golf: Son Antem East & West
The East Course opened in 1994 and is a championship course. It is laid out on what used to be hunting ground, and for that reason you will come across a wide variety of animals and birds during your round.Â A well designed course the wide and long fairways allow the high-handicap player to recover from bad tee shots. There is plenty of rough, and a good supply of spare balls is recommended!
The West Course opened in 2001 and is a tougher test than the East course because of its narrow fairways and elevated greens. The course is free of building construction – wild life is all you will see on this course. The course has three lakes which come into play on five holes.
The Son Antem West course is reckoned to be of the finest Golf courses on the Island of Mallorca.
