The Son Vida golf course ranks among the island's most beautiful courses. Located just a few miles to the north-west of Palma, the tree-lined fairways offer breathtaking views of the spectacular surroundings down to the Bay of Palma. The course was one of the first to be created on Majorca in 1964 by F.W. Hawtree, but was renovated in 2001 by Kurt Rossknecht. The 18-hole golf course is a par 71. The golf course consists of fairly tight fairways with two water hazards. The greens tend to be small & round, with bunkers on either side. Doglegs on the course create challenges for the more experienced player.
Son Vida golf course is associated with the luxury hotel, the 5 star Arabella Golf and Spa resort. if you stay here, the rates include one green fee per day at the course, plus any of the other three golf courses nearby (Son Muntaner, Son Quint and Son Quint Executive Course). Green fee reductions are also applicable if you stay at any of the other Starwood hotels on Mallorca (Castillo Son Vida & St Regis Mardavall).
