Mallorca offers great weather conditions most of the year and there are only little times where the rain or the cold are an impediment to play compared to the rest of European countries. Located only 2km from the well-known beach resort of Magaluf, West of Palma de Mallorca, we can find the fourth golf oldest corse on the island, T-golf & country club.

However, after a nearly two-year renovation, T-golf & country club regained its original essence, and it is one of the highest rated and most popular courses on the island.

The European Challenge Tour always looks for the best venues to host their events, and without any doubts, the Spanish courses are included in that list. Usually the first steps for a professional golfer is to play in the Challenge Tour, where they will try to be on top of the leaderboard week after week to improve their rights to play better tournaments and ultimately classify to the main Tour, earning the card for The European Tour. The players feel a big preassure to performing well due to the lower money prizes and sponsors. However, their game is impeccable and very much recommended to watch.
Spain has been in the spotlight also for the European Tour schedule this year. The western country hosted three consecutive events in late April and early May, before taking a break and coming back to wrap up the season with another three back-to-back tournaments in Spanish land. The last one was the Mallorca Golf Open from the 21st to 24th of October, 2021 in Golf Santa Ponsa, Mallorca where Jeff WINTHER was proclaimed champion with a total of 15-under par.
