The award-winning Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca is proving to be more popular than ever before, with readers of the leading German magazine Golf Journal voting the course as their favourite for an unprecedented sixth time.
The stunning Robert Trent Jones Jr-designed layout, situated in the north of the sunshine island overlooking the Bay of Alcudia, regained its coveted place at the top of the rankings of the magazine’s annual Golf Travel Awards after finishing runner-up the last two years.
It is the sixth time in eight years that Alcanada has been named by readers as their favourite European course outside of Germany, and the top Mallorcan venue beat the likes of Montgomerie Maxx Royal, Carya, Thracian Cliffs and 1997 Ryder Cup host Valderrama to claim the prestigious accolade.
Günther Reiter, deputy chief editor of Golf Journal, one of the most widely read newsstand golf publications in Europe, said: “Many congratulations to Alcanada for regaining the number one spot as the most popular golf course in Europe in our readers’ poll.”
“Very interestingly, most of our readers and users name especially two reasons for their choice: the dreamlike panoramic view over the Mediterranean Sea and the superb condition of both the golf course and the facility as a whole.”
The awards were launched in 2002 and have since become the most popular opinion poll for golfers in Germany, with participants voting for their favourite golf courses, resorts, hotels, destinations, and airlines in seven categories.
The accolade is the latest honour to be bestowed on the club and is further reward for a long-term programme of investment designed to deliver the best possible golfing experience to its members and visitors.
