This course will stay with me as the most varied of the 3 courses I played (Son Quint and Santa Ponsa 1), shorter than the others and not as well maintained (dry fairways and somewhat bumpy greens). The bunkers had nice sand though.

I have always enjoyed playing here, the courses always in good condition and one of the best priced (but still too expensive) courses in Mallorca. But this week was just too slow, with a couple of inexperienced four balls ahead and no course marshal to...More

Dear Mr Barrow, thanks for you opinion. Son Vida Golf is the oldest golf course on the island, inaugurated in 1964. The course is a typical classic design for those times, a bit shorter than a modern course and with narrow fairways. This is why...More

Some of the previous reviews of this course seem to be over-critical based on the experience I've just had. The course itself is very well designed, the first dozen holes are very attractive, winding their way through trees and hills. The last six or so...More

This course has been overwatered. The result is that the fairways are very wet and also thin. This means that even in the middle of summer it is too easy to take a divot/thin the ball. The greens are so soft that they are peppered...More

Son Vida is easy to play - if you're up to a challenging course this is not the one. I enjoyed playing here though, a relaxing afternoon.
