The perfect tee in Mallorca
Whether you finally want to learn golf, improve your handicap or get your first handicap: The German Golf Academy Mallorca has the right course for beginners and advanced players on the green. The golf school - established in 1996 - is represented at 16 locations around the Mediterranean. Claudia Köhler, Sales Manager of the Golf Academy Mallorca and passionate golfer explains what makes Mallorca so special as a golf destination.
When is the best month to play golf in Mallorca?
The best seasons are spring and autumn, however, you can also play golf in winter and summer so basically, all year round.
What distinguishes Mallorca from other golf destinations around the Mediterranean?
Mallorca has a very good infrastructure. There are 24 golf courses (in the picture Golf Son Antem Mallorca). All golf clubs offer their members and guests very good care and excellent service. For this reason, Mallorca has been one of the most popular golf destinations in Europe for years. Golf fans can find several different golf courses, wonderful golf hotels and professional golf training. The attractive golf courses also regularly attract golf professionals.
What is meant by the QuickGame-mode training that you offer?
The QuickGame mode, also called the “100-metre game” is a modern training concept that specifically introduces the golf student to the areas of game speed and safety. Golf students are taught to play 9-holes quickly and safely in max. 90 minutes (single round), max. 105 minutes (2 rounds), max. 120 minutes (3 rounds) or max. record 135 minutes (4 rounds). Here's how it works: The players go at least 100 metres after their shot or play their ball that has flown more than 100 m. All players hit a flag at the same time from a line (comparable to the game variant "Scramble"). The balls should only be played from the fairway, so that the game situations correspond to the level of education of the students. This is followed by an approach stroke in front of the green and a maximum of 2 putts on the green. The result on a par 4: a maximum of 7 strokes - the flight reaches the green with 5 strokes, after which each player can perform 2 putts. With this simple but ingenious mode, golf rounds under 4.5 hours are easy to do. And that means enjoyment instead of frustration!
Can I get my handicap faster with individual training?
It won’t be faster, it's just another alternative to the group course.
What do I learn in a five-day exclusive course?
That depends on the level of play and the goals of the golf students. The exclusive course can be individually adapted to the wishes of the participants. The course is also suitable for people who have different levels of play but still want to spend their time together on the golf course.
Do you offer special golf courses for families with children?
The exclusive course can be expanded at any time, so that it could also be perfect for families.
