Golfing holiday to Mallorca a great summer getaway

As the UK continues to shiver under a wet and cold snap which may feel to many like it has been going on for months, Brits' minds may wander to sunnier climes, exotic locations and the chance to enjoy activities they may be avoiding at home due to the weather.

And with a wide range of luxury villas in Mallorca, the island could prove to be a great place for British holidaymakers to go to escape the chilly UK.

Mallorca, the largest of the Spanish Balearic islands, has long been a favourite holiday destination for Brits and those with a passion for sport could also find it a brilliant spot to head to.

Many of the island's properties are villas with private tennis courts, which means that active holidaymakers can relax on their break but also keep up with their fitness routine and perfect their serve. However, the island's 20 golf courses also make it a perfect spot for those who love nothing more than teeing off and spending an afternoon strolling the green in the warmth of the Spanish sun.

There are many villas with late availability in Mallorca, so those who fancy a last-minute jaunt to an exotic spot may also favour the destination.

Teeing off under the Spanish sun

The island of Mallorca has long been seen as a haunt for those who love to play golf. It is home to some 20 golf courses and no matter what type of course keen players are looking for, they are sure to find it here.

A luxury villa in Mallorca could prove an ideal base from which to check out the wide range of golf courses on offer.

Those who want to spend a whole afternoon putting a golf ball around a green may find that Son Vida Golf, Golf De Poniente or Real Golf De Bendinat are good places to choose, as all these venues offer 18-hole courses.

Visitors to the island after a quicker game so they have chance to head to Mallorca's famous beaches and top up their tan could pay a visit to Golf Pollenca, Golf Son Servera and La Rotana Golf, all of which offer nine-hole play.

In recent years, Mallorca has pumped a lot of cash into upgrading and improving its golf courses, so even those who have travelled to the island and stayed in a luxury villa before could find a visit to a golf course an ideal part of a holiday.

Teeing off on a golfing holiday in Mallorca could give Brits the chance to enjoy the island from another angle and many of the courses offer great views of the beautiful Spanish countryside or impressive Mallorca coast.

Where to spend the evening on a golfing holiday on Mallorca

While holidaymakers could easily spend all their time on Mallorca exploring the wide range of golf courses on offer or practising their backhanded serve on their villa's private tennis court, there is much else to do on the Spanish isle.

After a day spent strolling the fairway of one of its 20 golf courses, holidaymakers may fancy a refreshing drink or tasty meal. And like much of Spain, the island really does offer an unrivalled variety of restaurants and bars.

Visitors can take their pick from traditional Spanish tapas bars, Mexican restaurants, pizza places and Indian cuisine.

Chinese restaurants are also common on the island and could be ideal for those wanting something a little different on a holiday to Mallorca. After a meal, there are plenty of places to head to for a drink, a dance and a chance to relax.

Mallorca has it all - quiet and trendy bars, up-tempo cabaret clubs and huge nightclubs ideal for those who really want to dance the night away and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of every day life at home.

And after an evening of fun, where better for people to rest their heads for the night than in their own luxury Mallorca villa? Hiring a villa gives unrivalled privacy and the chance to truly relax and get away from it all, and is the best option for those heading to Mallorca for a golfing break.
