Situated on the north coast of Menorca, close to the Son Parc beach,
Son Parc golf course is the island's only golf course.
Not that long
ago it started life as a nine hole complex, but in August 2006 the
all new 18 hole course was opened to the public.
The course is both challenging and picturesque. It is located just a few
hundred metres from the award winning Son Parc beach resort.
At the first hole you may be lulled into a false sense of security this
gentle 440m, and is a relatively short par 5. With a stoke index of 11 it
does offer a gentle start to your round
The main threats as you begin comes
from two fairway bunkers and the elevated green that will cause problems
for golfers whose approach shot lands short.
All is not exactly plain sailing from the first hole but the next major
challenge rears its head at the fifth.
Regarded as the most difficult of
holes most difficult hole it measures 452m and is a par 5. The approach is
and the green is tight and undulating.
The last hole at first
sight appears to provide a gentle finale for your round. However the stroke
index of 12 is a little decieving. The 147m par 3 should not overstretch
all those who stay clear of the trees which guard the front of the green.
If holiday bliss includes a round of golf then Menorca could be the answer.
