With views across both the bay, the interior and
the mountains the natural environment is the star of this course. There
are 9 holes here and each one has a different characteristic. Play each one twice and we are sure you
will discover something new each time.
The friendly staff and a great kitchen in the clubhouse make this a must visit course whilst nearby are the courses of Pula, Canyamel and Capdepera so it is worth exploring this part of the island further for golfers and non golfers alike.
With more surprises and subtle challenges than most 18 hole courses manage to deliver it is hard to choose just one hole as the signature at Son Servera.
For us the second hole is one that stands out above all the rest. At 340m it is a long Par 4 and it incorporates a lot of typical characteristics in the same hole. Fairway bunkers in the range of a drive combined with an elevated green and greenside bunkers make this a difficult hole but a challenge that can be met with the right strategy. On top of that the view from the green is spectacular.
1st – Par 4, 341m, a dogleg right with a blind approach to an uphill
Son Servera starts as it means to go on here with a dogleg right. The
fairway is open with a bank on the left hand side. It is not overly long
so we suggest you play for the bank on the left to leave a clean second
shot. The flag is behind the tallest pine tree which you can see over
the ridge. Of the two greenside bunkers the right is the most forgiving
so we suggest you tend this way if you are cautious.
2nd – Par 4, 370m, dogleg left with another uphill approach and well
This signature hole requires a large strike from the tee to make the
green in regulation. Staying tight to the corner in line with the
largest tree in the distance reduces the length and takes out of play
the water feature on the right hand side of the fairway. The trees on
this side are spacious and forgiving.
3rd – Par 3, 158m, elevated tee with water on the right and a bunker on
The downslope all the way to the green here means that you do not have
to club for the pin as anything straight will kick on. We suggest
slightly less club than the card would indicate.
4th – Par 5, 452m, sharp dogleg left in front of the green.
From the tee the fairway bunker can be in play depending on where the
markers are. The sharp 90 degree turn just in front of the green means
that the direct line into the green is over the trees tight to the
corner of the building on the left.
5th – Par 4, 340m, another dogleg right with a wall running down the
right hand side of the fairway.
The line from the tee is just to the left of the bushes in front of the
green. Anything further right will be in danger of being trapped by the
wall that runs along there. The flag is to the right of the telegraph
pole with bunkers framing the green. There is another bunker about 20
metres short right of the green.
6th – Par 4, 285m, dogleg left with bunkers in play on every shot and
Not a long hole so our preferred way to play here is in behind the
fairway bunker on the right hand side. This leaves a cleaner line in to
the well protected green.
7th Par 5, 480m, a straight but narrow hole with Out of Bounds the
length of the right hand side.
A narrow hole that requires hitting the fairway off the tee and all the
way down. Slow and steady in regulation is our advice for this hole.
8th – Par 4, 416m, a long dogleg left with a hazard in front of the
A long hole with a hazard in front of the green (which is not on the
card or map) means that only the biggest hitters will not have to lay up
so there is nothing to lose by going easy and safe off the tee.
9th – Par 3, 167m, long Par 3 with water on the right hand side.
The water here shouldn’t really be in play so the challenge is actually
the distance. The driving range is on the left hand side and is Out of
