Capdepera Golf, was opened in 1989. Designed by Dan Maples, Capdepera is an 18 hole, par-72 course. Laid out in a shallow valley which was previously an almond plantation, the course consists of a mix of relatively easy holes. Open fairways bordered by almond and olive trees, provide a gentle and relaxing golfing experience. The more challenging holes in the back nine wind up into the hills that overlook the course. This is where more accomplished golfers will find the challenges. Overall, Capdepera offers an all round golf experience for beginners and lower handicap players alike.
With spacious greens and a charming combination of long wide fairways, Capdepera does not hold too many unpleasant surprises. However, with some narrow fairways and its six lakes, one can not afford to be too complacent. The front nine holes are comparatively flat, with the odd dogleg fairway surrounded by water to keep the golfer on his toes. The last 6 more intricate holes, are hidden among the hills and offer a challenging end to the round. Particularly attractive is the par-3 15th, which has panoramic views to the coast, and is probably one of the most picturesque holes in Mallorca.
Capdepera’s Restaurant Roca Viva, which overlooks the 18th green, serves a variety of local Mallorcan dishes, as well as an international menu. Locally sourced and seasonal ingredients are used wherever possible. Being located in an agricultural area, the restaurant has engaged in promoting local cuisine and ingredients. The clubhouse is designed to blend in with the local area and is built of Mallorcan stone. Recognised as one of the prettiest clubhouses in Mallorca, the 19th hole is noted for both quality of food and ambience.
The well stocked Pro Shop is located in the reception area on the ground floor of the club house. This is where you check in for your round and make reservations for the restaurant. Professional golf tuition is available for individuals and groups.
Do I Need a Buggy?
Being situated in a relatively flat rural landscape, having a buggy at Capdepera is not really a necessity. However, the last 6 holes do have slopes and height changes. These holes rise into the hills behind the course, so some players will find a buggy adds to their experience. Buggies can be taken on to fairways, subject to the weather.
