It’s not often that being ‘booed’ is a good thing, but according to Golfboo, the world’s first golf travel search engine Club de Golf Alcanada, in Mallorca, is the most highly-rated course in the Balearic Islands.

The classification developed by Golfboo establishes a ranking by region, based on all the scores obtained by courses in various publications.

This takes into account factors such as the state of the course, bunkers, greens, all the facilities or other services such as customer service or even price/quality ratio, and the total number of reviews received by users.

Alcanada’s tally of 8.5 out of 10 topped the Balearics’ list. It is just the latest in a stream of accolades for the Robert Trent Jones Jr-designed course which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013.

Kristoff Both, director of golf at Club de Golf Alcanada, said: “The rankings system used by Golfboo is unique in that it aggregates other rankings, which, in theory, should lead to a fairer, more objective outcome. To be number one on that basis then, is a huge fillip for us here at Club de Golf Alcanada and is testament to the effort put in by everybody."

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 6,499m course 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.
