Alcanada in running for major gong

Popular Mallorcan club ‘proud’ to have been nominated in inaugural in World Golf Awards.

REGULARLY rated as the best golf course in the Balearic Islands, Club de Golf Alcanada is aiming to add to its growing list of honours after being nominated at the first World Golf Awards, which will be held in Portugal later this year.

The inaugural award winners will be announced on November 15 and Alcanada’s highly regarded 6,499m layout is among the venues to have been shortlisted to be named as ‘Spain’s Best Golf Course’ in 2014.

The Robert Trent Jones Jr-designed course has won a steady stream of awards since opening 11 years ago including, most recently, being ranked as the highest-rated course in the Balearics according to GOLFBOO, the world’s first golf travel search engine.

Last year users of the popular website voted Alcanada their ‘favourite European course’ for the third successive year, while readers of the leading German magazine Golf Journal, chose the venue as their favourite course in Europe for an unprecedented fifth successive year!

Kristoff Both, director of golf at Club de Golf Alcanada, said: “Being acknowledged for any award is special and we’re very proud to have been nominated for such a prestigious global honour.


“We’re constantly striving at Alcanada to deliver the best possible experience to our customers and receiving such recognition is further evidence of the high regard that the club is held in by the golf industry.”

Voting for the World Golf Awards is open until October 6, with the winners set to be crowned at a lavish gala ceremony at the Conrad Algarve in Quinta do Lago.

Situated in the north region of Mallorca in a breathtaking location overlooking the Bay of Alcudia, Alcanada’s 18-hole championship course opened in October 2003. Adjacent to the Mediterranean - the only course next the sea on the island - the layout blends naturally into the typical Mallorcan terrain and takes its name from an island with a lighthouse, situated just offshore, which can be seen from most of the holes.

Magnificent mountain and sea views and a mixture of pine and olive groves provide the splendid setting for a round at Alcanada and the course is recognised by the golf industry as one of the finest venues in Spain and Europe and is a founder member of ‘The Leading Golf Courses of Spain’ collection.

In addition, the club boasts a centuries-old Mallorca clubhouse, which offers guests the opportunity to sample regional specialties in its first-class dining facilities on a sun-baked terrace. A comprehensive golf academy including a spacious short game area and covered driving range are also available.
