Santa Ponsa Golf Club Information
Santa Ponsa is home to two fantastic 18-hole championship courses and also features a 9 hole short-course. This club has played host to a wealth of prestigious events across its two courses, including 6 European Tour Events, with the late Seve Ballesteros featuring in many of these, as well as several other professional and top-level amateur events. Santa Ponsa I dates back to 1977 with Santa Ponsa II opening more recently, in 1991.
Whilst being a reasonably long course, Santa Ponsa I (available to the public) offers up many wide fairways allowing longer hitters to open their shoulders and let it rip! The immaculate fairways here are lined with a variety of trees typical to Mallorca, such as Almond, Pine & Olive, with several large lakes and rivers also contributing to formation of the surrounding landscape. The late Seve Ballesteros won the Balearic Open here twice, in 1988 & 1992, with the legendary cigar smoking, chianti quaffing, Miguel Angel Jimenez taking the price more recently in 1998. A course with a significant history that can be felt as you make your way around, this is well worth a visit.
The course condition is excellent all year, and at its absolute best from October to April. Prepare yourself for some fun of the 10th Hole… at nearly 700 yards it is quite the beast!

Four of us used Fox Golf for a 5 day golf tour of Majorca. The tour was a huge success and we are grateful to James for his efforts. He pays great attention to detail and this combined with his extensive knowledge of the golf courses and restaurants on the island ensured a smooth and highly enjoyable trip. Fox Golf are recommended!
Over the last few years my experience with Fox Golf has been first rate. Each trip has been superbly organised, overseen and managed directly by James. All golfing and social itineraries have been carefully tailored and expertly judged. And all logistics have run smoothly, without fault, so no moment is wasted and maximum fun can be had throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Fox Golf for any corporate event or personal trip with friends.
Fox Golf organised a trip for eight members from Royal Cinque Ports in April 2015. It was a great trip and brilliantly organised. James went out of his way to ensure every detail was catered for. We all had a great time both on and off the course. I can give no higher recommendation than to say if we go back we will ask James to do it all again for us. 10 out of 10.
