Discover for yourself why the stunning Son Gual is one of the top 100 golf course in the world - with new luxury golf breaks from Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous.
Son Gual has leapt an impressive nine places to be rated the 44th best golf course in Golf World's benchmark Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe 2014 rankings.
The €30m Son Gual golf course opened only in 2007 and was ranked 53 in the previous rankings of 2011.
Golf World said: "Son Gual is what a modern championship course should be, and, taken together with its fabulous clubhouse and practice facilities, is every inch a serious Tour venue … it stands comparison with our own high-octane parklands The Grove and The Belfry - not least in the conditioning stakes, which is no mean achievement."
Son Gual features large lakes, 66 bunkers, 800 olive trees - some more than a thousand years old - wild flowers in the rough areas and vineyards in several areas around the course. Just four years after Golf Son Gual opened, it was recognised by Golf World magazine as the number one on the island and ninth best in Spain - and the latest accolade pushes it up to eight in the golf-rich country.
In May 2009 it hosted the Mallorca Senior Open and received gushing praise from a number of participants - former Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam even compared the greens to those at Augusta National.
The special golf-break packages from the four-star Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort Portals Nous, close to the marina at Puerto Portals, are designed to allow visitors to experience for themselves just why the course is so highly regarded.
A three-night, half-board break in a ‘classic' double room - including three Son Gual green-fees per person - start at just €440 per person, while a five-night package, with four rounds of golf each, costs €650pp.
These deals are bookable upon request and are available from November 3 to December 20, 2013, and from January 5 to February 26, 2014.
