Golf Son Parc Menorca is special for many reasons. Offering a natural, relaxing and fascinating golfing experience. The course is as competitive as it is picturesque, the 18 hole surrounded by pine woods with a narrow flat layout. Difficulties can arise on windy days, on the new holes where there is a dog-leg, near the wide well defined greens and on the holes with a water feature. On one side of the course is bordered by an extensive wet area. Rocky bunkers, the lakes, the wild canes and the colony of Peacocks are some of the distinctive characteristics of the course. There are many strategically thought out obstacles and bunkers giving way to a very technical layout characterised by its undulating greens which offer a challenge not only to the beginner golfer but also the experts. There is also a Driving Range, 190 mts long and 83 mts wide, with 18 bays: 14 are covered and 4 outside and nocturnal illumination, a putting green and a chipping area, all this is visible from the terrace of the Bar – Restaurant "Romeo y Julieta" open all year around.
