European Challenge Tour to showcase quality of Mallorca golf
Mallorca’s golf offering will be highlighted in November when the European Challenge Tour grand final rolls on to the island.
The culmination of a potentially career-changing season will happen at Club de Golf Alcanada from November 7-10 – and, for those wishing to experience the championship course for themselves, there are few better places to base oneself than Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous.
The delightful four-star hotel underwent a major €6.5m renovation last winter and, this year, guests have benefited from the improvements this injection generated, including an extra 10 rooms, refurbishment of the remaining 100, the launch of a free golfers’ shuttle to the clubhouse at the adjacent Royal Bendinat golf course, and the services of a golf concierge.
For golfers looking to get in some early-season action in the sun next year, the unique Lindner Mallorca Golf Trophy is ideal. And, with the hotel just 45 minutes from Alcanada, there’s an opportunity to add an extra round and discover what the professionals will face later in the year.
The Mallorca Golf Trophy is a two-day, individual Stableford event, with golf at both Son Gual – the island’s undisputed number-one course – and T-Golf & Country Club (Poniente), one of Mallorca’s oldest and most respected courses.
A competitor’s package – from March 26-29, 2020 – costs from €822pp, based on two sharing a double room, and includes three nights’ B&B accommodation; two competition rounds of golf; greens fees, trolleys, range balls, and half-way house on both courses; buffet, entertainment and beverages after the round at Son Gual; complimentary shuttle between hotel and golf courses; a welcome evening with food and drink; and a prizegiving ceremony and gala dinner at Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous.
An additional, non-competitive round of golf at Club de Golf Alcanada can also be organised at a preferential rate, via the resort’s golf concierge.
Located only a few minutes from Palma and the marina of Puerto Portals, Lindner Golf Resort Portals Nous’ bedrooms are adorned with African art objects, abstractly decorated carpets and rustic wooden stools, to provide ethnic flair, rounded off by floral patterns on wallpaper and cushions. The completely remodelled and modernised bathrooms now contain a floor-to-ceiling rain shower and are more spacious overall.
The resort’s two-floor Bahari Spa offers plenty of opportunities to relax, with an outdoor yoga terrace and spa treatments using island ingredients such as aloe vera and cactus extract, and an indoor and outdoor pool. There is a choice of dining: Niko´s Place offers Mediterranean cuisine, while the Chumbo Pool Restaurant offers fresh salads, hearty steaks, light pasta dishes and exotic cocktails.
