Recently the Federatión Balear de Golf has announced that the European Challenge Tour final season tournament will be held in Mallorca for the next four years. In this first edition it will take place at the beginning of November at the recently renovated Alcanada Golf Club, thus being the final stop of the newly named ‘Road to Mallorca’.
In this way Mallorca returns to the international calendar of the Challenge Tour for the first time since 2003, establishing the agreement between the Challenge Tour and the Federation Balear de Golf Federation that the Grand Final wil be played in several golf courses of the island.
“This was a goal yearned for by Balearic golf for years, and we have finally made it come true. I want to thank both the Government and the Consell de Mallorca for their commitment to our sport, which is undoubtedly a commitment to quality. In this way Mallorca and the Balearic Islands will once again be strongly on the map of European golf, as the islands golf courses deserve, which make up a first class offer. Mallorca is a paradise for golf, ”says Bernardino Jaume, president of the Balearic Golf Federation. “This Road to Mallorca is very important, and it is a historic day for golf in the Balearic Islands.
The whole season will be oriented towards the final in Mallorca and the advertising throughout the year will show that our island is not only a summer holiday destination, but that it is an ideal destination for the whole year and a true paradise for all the people enjoying a quality golf holiday, or golf break.”
“It is a great pleasure to be able to confirm that the Challenge Tour Calendar will be known as the Road to Mallorca and will culminate in the Grand Final of the Challenge Tour, during the next four years on Mallorcan soil. I was surprised by the beauty, diversity and quality of Mallorca’s golf courses during my visits to the island. I am excited that our players have the opportunity to experience this over the next four years, starting with the precious Alcanada Golf Club in November, ”adds Alain de Soultrait, director of the European Challenge Tour.
“In addition to being a perfect paradise for all sports at any time of the year, the Island offers exceptional services and professionals from the tourism sector. The Fundació Mallorca Turisme is committed to celebrating the Challenge Tour Final on the island in its strategy to promote Mallorca as a low season destination, and the international impact of this event is unquestionable, ”concludes Catalina Cladera, president of the Consell de Majorca.
