Mallorca's a perfect destination for playing golf. In this new blog entry we’ll tell you in a few words why we at our hotel on Playa de Palma think Mallorca's a good choice for your golfing holidays.
Mallorca abounds in golf courses! On this pint-sized island (you can drive between the farthermost points in less than an hour and a half) you'll find over twenty golf courses – from Andratx to Son Servera, and continuing on through Palma and Llucmajor, where you'll find the Mallorcan golf courses closest to the Aya Hotel: Golf Maioris, Golf Puntiró, Golf Son Gual and Golf Son Antem.

In summertime in Mallorca many sporting competitions and social events are organized to make the most of the warm temperatures and leafy countryside; from June to October the outdoor life comes into its own and over a hundred competitions are held, establishing golf firmly amongst the summer sports practised in Mallorca.
