One of Mallorca’s oldest courses, the John Harris course was opened in 1978 and is a well designed course that even the best of players find it hard to beat at times, but it remains a tough but fair course.
The views from the 8th, and 11th holes are exhilarating and make you appreciate the beauty of this course, and it is hard to believe that you are only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the thriving resort of Magalluf.
The wide fairways are a feature of Poniente, but don’t be fooled into thinking that makes the course any easier; they don’t, because many slope away unsuspectingly. The large greens are also devious at times. But the main hazards on this course are the many trees which line the fairways and have been home to many wayward tee shots.
The 14th hole is probably one of the best golf holes in Mallorca. Stroke index 2, it does not appear that hard, but out of bounds on the right and a lot of water to negotiate make it a great hole to achieve your par on.
For nature lovers, Poniente is a haven of plants, flowers and wildlife.
Do I Need A Buggy? Poniente undulates in parts, is not a hilly course, it is easily walkable.
