The best time to play golf
The golf courses are open all year round, but in July in August it is often so hot that only the real sun worshippers can still play.
The main time for golfing in Mallorca is from April to June as well as September and October. From November to March, the golf courses are less busy, but with a bit of luck, the sun will shine and create the perfect weather for playing golf.
During these months and in midsummer, when demand is not so high, there is usually nothing to stop a spontaneous game, and tee times do not necessarily have to be booked in advance. During the rest of the year, tee times should be booked in advance.
