Capdepera Golf is situated in the northeast of Majorca close to Artá. The 18-hole par 72 course was designed by renowned U.S. golf course architect Dan Maples and opened in 1989. The course is roughly 5,900 meters long and interesting for players of all handicap categories.
Both accomplished and inexperienced golfers will find a challenge here. The fairway runs down an idyllic valley surrounded by the rocky hills of the Llevant, and the immaculately kept course offers probably everything the keen golfer could want. There are tight tee shots, a mix of long open and tight fairways, challenging wide greens, some double tier greens and six lakes.
The first six holes are reasonably flat – the odd dog leg and water hazard await the golfer – but the back nine is the more interesting half of the course and well worth waiting for: the 10th green is rather like an amphitheater, and the 15th hole has in the past been voted Mallorca’s most beautiful, with panoramic views of the valley and the Mediterranean. The final half dozen holes are played amid the mountains of Artà.
The training area consists of a 3-hole short course, a driving range as well as practice greens (putting, pitching, and chipping green).
Club restaurant Roca Viva is a popular meeting spot after the round. The beautiful patio offers magnificent views of the course and its stunning surroundings. Guests are always welcome at Capdepera Golf. A club ID with a minimum handicap of 36 as well as a registration prior to your visit is required. The club is about 80 kilometers away from Palma and is easy to reach by car.
