Golf Son Parc is special for many reasons; it offers a relaxing, fascinating, natural golfing experience. Not only competitive but also picturesque, its 18 holes surrounded by pine woods has a comfortable, narrow and flat layout. The difficulties can arise on windy days, or on the more recently built holes where there is a dog-leg near the wide well defined greens and possibly on the holes with water features. Surrounding one part of the course you will see the wet area. Rocky bunkers, the lakes, wild canes and a colony of Peacocks are the distinctive characteristics of the course. There are many obstacles and bunkers strategically thought out which gives a very technical layout characterised by undulating greens offering a challenge to both beginner and experienced golfers. There is also the Driving Range which is 190 metres long and 83 metres wide, with 18 bays: 14 covered and 4 uncovered, night time illumination, a putting green and a chipping green, all visible from the terrace of the Bar- Restaurant Es Bruc Golf, open all year round from 09:00 hours. FREE IWIFI available as well as DIGITAL TV & CANAL + to allow you to follow all the major sporting events throughout the year. For reservations: +34 971 35 93 26.
