You certainly don’t need a handicap to play the Arabella Golf Son Quint Pitch & Putt. This Par 3, 9-hole short course was designed by James Arnold and opened in 2009. Situated in the affluent area of Son Vida on the outskirts of Palma, it boasts exceptional landscape views of the surrounding hills scattered with lavish villas.
The flexible rules of etiquette, dress code and the speedier nature of this course appeal to amateur golfers looking to practice their new golf skills as well as more seasoned golfers who simply don’t fancy a full 18 holes whilst on holiday. So, on a sunny Friday afternoon, I hopped in a cab from the Paseo Marítimo in Palma and asked the driver to take me and a friend to the Son Quint Golf Course.
