Good course with tricky tee shots
Oct 2019
We played Bendinat golf over the weekend and enjoyed the course. It is a tricky course with a few blind shots which means that accuracy is prized above distance and that starts from the first tee which is elevated. The 18th has a nice rocky stream area that needs water to make it look better but is a good finishing hole. There are some long walks between tee boxes as the course is built around the roads in the area. Buggies are only allowed on paths which is a slight negative. The pro shop and caddy master were friendly and helpful, the bar staff early on were good but we waited for a long time to get served after golf and eventually had to go to the bar and place the order.
The negative thing was the pace of play, it was a 5 hour round because the course was so busy. It’s understandable because loose tee shots are punished but it’s disappointing as it takes away from the enjoyment of the course. All in all though, the course is worth visiting and we would definitely return so don’t let the pace of play put you off playing a good course

Beautifully maintained course, some holes challenging but well worth the challenge. Great views, and views of mountains & coast.

A good challenge.
Oct 2018
Well worth a visit if you are in the area, not necessarily a long course but technically challenging. We a group of some fifty played the day after heavy rain and although buggies on paths it was a good golf experience. Club house facilities were more than adequate with friendly and attentive staff, good value for money.

Wasn’t sure until the first Tee but played this course in 2006, called the previous day to book and was told no need as the course was very quiet.
On arrival, I payed to play 18 holes with a buggy,(please pay for the buggy, as the course is very steep and there are some distances between Greens and Tee’s)
I played the first 4 holes 1 over par which I was delighted with, however the 3 ball in front were very slow and the 1 ball behind me caught up so we decided to pair up, Christian from Denmark played off 2.3 handicap,I was playing off 12.
We eventually got through the 3 ball in front and continued to complete this tough test of Golf, the course was in fantastic condition and the Greens were very receptive( to the 3 ball in front, repair your pitch marks, I personally repaired pitch marks on the first 4 Holes whilst behind you, God knows how you left the remaining 14)?
Think about Club selection on every Tee, I got my Driver out twice and got penalised both times, hitting 5 and rescue Woods put you in far better positions which resulted in my 36 points!!!
Playing in temperatures of 38* 2 freezing pints of San Miguel and a Soda Water was welcomed in the Clubhouse afterwards, all and all a great day, fantastic course and great staff, this is a great test of Golf that must be played.

We were mugged on the course
May 2016 • Friends
Three of us arrived early for two rounds, paid for our pre-booked buggies and set off for a nice round. Lunch was served by one of the rudest bar staff I've met.

We set off for our second round when the Marshall drove up to us on the second tee and demanded an extra €45 for the buggies for the second round. We explained we would discuss the matter and settle when we got back, rather than on the course. He then followed us whilst speaking on the phone to the head honcho, who then arrived on the third tee demanding the money.

A phone call to Mallorca Golf Connection's John Little (the company we booked through) resulted in him telling us we needed to pay up or leave.

I've never been mugged on a Golf course before...

Played here with 7 other golfers ( one a pro). The greens were the slowest I have ever played on. When I complained to the Marshall on the 8th he told me to come off and so we did. The pro at first would not see us even though the 2 ladies kept phoning him. He would not give us our money back and would not even give us 50% of the Buggy hire. I asked him to show us him putting on them and he refused A truly terrible experience

new greens in immaculate conditions

the course was closed in July and August for complete green renovation and playing it now makes a great difference - I have not seen the course in such a good condition for a long time ! The winter offer for 2 with buggy at 145 Euros makes it worthwhile to play!

When we stumbled on this little beauty we saw the sign suggesting Private Members and when it to ask for directions to local restaurants. They insisted we stay and eat, and are we glad we did. Food amazing views again amazing, I say again as you are hard pushed to find a restaurant in Mallorca with no views. Not cheap but quality for the Tapas just out of this world. One of our waiters we thought might need a career change as a little miserable but others that also served us made up for his rudeness.

Very dissapointing visit , we should have realised when we arrived at 9.00am for breakfast and the resturant had no food that it was not going to be a good day.Tee's and fairways in some places were just dried dirt , after seeing the rusty tractor and exposed drianage pipes on the 2nd hole we realised we had made a big mistake Seems to me like once they had sold the apartments, they just decided not to spend any more money on the maintenance of the course .. we were due to have lunch there but just got in the car and headed for Son Gual GC instead which is where should have gone in the first place .. wont be back to Bendinat in a hurry I can aasure you
