Canyamel Golf Club
Inaugurated in 1987 and designed by Pepe Gancedo, the course is of average difficulty. Mixed vegetation provides scenery around the course including giant hundred-year-old Chamaerops palm trees, fig trees, almond trees, pines, wild olives, carob trees, and vines which climb up from the gully which runs past the 10th, 11th and 12th holes. Known for the quality of its greens, the course’s other main attributes are the very fast and undulating greens and fairways that are constantly maintained in excellent condition. It is also extremely accessible for all types of players. Canyamel is located on the north-east side of Mallorca and is about 80 km from Palma.
Notable holes: Two maximum-difficulty holes (2 and 13) and curious features such as the par-4 ninth, with a rustic stone house in the middle that makes it hard to play its 320 metres in four shots; the fourth, from which you overlook the sea and can even glimpse the neighbouring island of Minorca; and the spectacular eighteenth, with a triple-tiered undulation ‘piano’-shaped green visible from the clubhouse terrace, resembling a set of stalls open to the mountain.
