We played Son Vida as part of our week in Mallorca and really enjoyed it. I had last played there almost 30 years ago.

Fun golf course with some interesting holes. Some holes are really narrow which makes it tough - however many of these holes are short so keeping the driver in the bag might be the best play for some of them!

Just played Son Vida with an 8 handicap. Booked on line for €110 without the option to book a cart. Arrived at the club and was told no chance to get a cart as must pre-book! Course is interesting, certainly not flat, greens probably just ok but with plenty of damage. However, was playing behind 4 geriatric, German grannies who... More

Played the course today for the first time with my father and we both agreed it is one of the best golf courses we've played. Some gorgeous views and the tight layout was a challenge, but one that rewarded well placed tee shots. The greens were excellent, with a nice true roll. I would have given 5 stars but the... More

I snuck out from the hotel for a couple of hours leaving the missus and child by the pool at the hotel. It isn't the longest of courses, but it is well laid out with some really interesting holes. And the greens are just awesome, some of the best I've played on in years. Apparently they've recently converted all the... More

The golf course is a nice test of golf and is capable of giving all levels of golfer a great experience. The new clubhouse is very nice but as a traditional golfer i prefer the quirks of the old building. There are a couple of photo opportunities if the golf course gets the better of you !

I felt this course was challenging and tight fairways on some holes. Could be a long round if you get stuck behind slow groups. Course Marshall could have helped of we could have seen him. The quality of greens and bunkers was very consistent but have a gps or course planned due to many blind tea shots. Overall 8 /... More

Very nice golf course excellently embeddef. The conditions were very good and the staff pretty froendly. The only bad thing was the pace of play, mainly because it was very crowded, but it also looks like everyone wearing golf shoes is allowed to play... A handicap policy on weekends would definitely make sense... I can recommend the course and will... More

Played this course 10+ times. Its an older course but in great shape and well maintained. The course is relatively short but very narrow and with challenging small greens that require spot on short game. Also it is quite scenic playing through the hills and villas of Son Vida. Would rate it #3 on Mallorca after Alcanada and Son Gual.
