Golfers Delight: Sunny Mallorca?

Sunny Mallorca?

After a delayful thursday morning we arrived at Camp de Mar around noon. After quickly putting our stuff into the hotel room we gathered at the driving range for a first warmup. Unfortunately, it rained all afternoon - more or less.

Nevertheless, three of us decided to tee off anyway. We hadn't started testing yet, but we took two drivers (Taylormade and Honma) and a Kramski putter onto the round. We only played eight holes before it was too dark to continue, but it was good for some first impressions of the Andratx golf course. Beautifully layed out in the mallorcan hills, it offers many challenges. First of all, do not even think about errant driving. Straight, accurate and hopefully long drives help you a lot here.

The Honma driver really delivers these long drives, an impressive piece of equipment with a shattering sound when you make a good hit. You can expect something for the EUR 1.000 price tag.

Testing really starts today, but the rain is pouring heavily, so I doubt that we will be able to go on a round. More to come later.
