Clube de Golf Alcanada was played at middle of June 2021 and was really satisfied. First of all beautiful place by the seaside of the northern Mallorca in the Alcudia Bay. Next enjoyable point is very acceptable price for green fee with buggy (it is advisable to take). Also everything is well arranged and maintained – from entrance to golf club, small but pretty driving range, practice green, clubhouse, restaurant and first tee. Concerning architecture and picturesque this golf course is pretty nice and not boring with many of attractive views. In general condition of fields and surroundings were perfect, greens was soft, very fast (what was surprised) and unpredictable. Golf course is not very challenging (from yellow tee), but concerning unpredictable greens you must be very careful to atack pin from every distance. There you can‘t find a lot of hazards and all fields look like enjoyable resort type course.
All you need is some accuracy and distance from tee. For long hitters some par 5 greens are reachable by two (1st, 13th & maybe 11th with favorable wind). Also you can find par5 hole with incredible distance from club tee – 565 m.! It is one of the most attractive and picturable hole from tee. Also very nice the last tree holes – 16th, 17th and 18th.
Actually you can find some of hazards and hilly landscape here for challenge, but if play safe it is not big deal to putt nice digits on scorecard. Concerning picturable views is very pleasant to play here. Game success depends on wind also. Cozy clubhouse and restaurant with memorable views to golf course and bay. As was mentioned buggy is recommended. I‘m not old man and can walk a lot, but quality of game will be very average I guess. Buggy is really comfortable and good equipped (GPS, cooler and etc.).
Value for price I found very high here. Staff is other part of this golf club and definitely not the worst. Elementary customer focus and courtesy are in high level. You feel like at home club. My best regards to all of you.
No doubt every golf course rating is always a subject with a lot of subjectivity, depending on various criteria. I always rating by the following criteria: course complexity or challenging, fields condition (especially greens & fairways), service (only what you can get: buggie, clubs rent, condition of clubs, the amount of choice and etc. except staff and other subjective things that depends on your or staff mood), surrounding views or pleasure to the eyes and definitely value for the price. All criteries will be rating from 1 to 5 stars. Concerning Alcanada my personal opinion is follow:
1. Challenging – 4*
2. Condition – 5*
3. Service - 5*+
4. Surroundings - 5*+
5. Value for the price - 5*
I look forward to coming back here for the next great round.
