Romeo Sala Massanaet, who developed the Pula Golf complex in the north east quarter of Mallorca in the mid-1990s, was the entrepreneur who then created Golf Maioris a decade later. He tasked Dieter Cabus (the Pula professional) with fashioning the course here and it’s fair to say he succeeded in spectacular style, constructing a very polished 18-hole layout.
Set out on a gently undulating landscape, the course measures just over 6,350 metres from the back tees, with fairways routed through stands of pine, olive and carob trees. Six of the holes skirt around intimidating water features, with five of these played on the more testing back nine.The 457-metre 4th is the signature hole at Golf Maioris. The first of the par five holes on the course, it doglegs left and slightly uphill to an island green which is also guarded by sand to the back right hand corner of the putting surface. A par here is the sort of satisfying score that will set you up for the rest of the round.
The first time I visited Maioris in October 2016 the course was in such awful shape that one ball would have been too much! The manager immediately gave us vouchers to come back and play for free. Have now just been back and experienced some of the course conditions that Jim McCann describes in his review below ....I think I am in a position to deliver a balanced verdict. 1) The course is long and not very wide, so avoid playing it from far back if it is wet or if you happen to be spreading it from the tee on that particular day, 2) greens are recovering from an awful state, but seem to be dominated by poa annua, so conditioning is probably going to be better early in the morning and it remains to be seen if the course can manage through the hot Mallorcan summer and still be decent in the autumn, 3) the course is currently not very busy in the afternoons so the layout which takes you to the clubhouse after 14 and 16 lends encourages fast match-play, which is otherwise a rarity on Mallorca.
With conditioning this variable, it is hard to recommend, but perhaps worth taking a chance if you stay nearby and can go to check conditions yourself before deciding to play.
I've just come back from a trip to Majorca and played this course.
I know it is winter there but the course was in a sorry state. The greens were a patchwork of repairs and the whole place seemed unkempt and in need of TLC. Although there were some interesting holes in design I shall not be going back.
