This is a course of two contrasting halves. The first nine holes are quite difficult, with Hole 5 offering a particularly excellent view of Menorca. The second nine holes are longer and flatter than the first but make for an excellent and challenging round of golf. This course has been developed taking into account many of the existing features. The little house on the 9th hole was preserved as were the typical dry stone walls on the 7th, 13th, 14th and 15th, where they come into play across and adjacent to the fairways. Inaugurated in 1987 and designed by Pepe Gancedo, the course is of average difficulty. Mixed vegetation provides scenery around the course including giant hundred-year-old Chamaerops palm trees, fig-trees, almond trees, pines, wild olives, carob trees, and vines which climb up from the gully which runs past the 10th, 11th and 12th holes. Canyamel is located on the north-east side of Majorca and is about 80 km from Palma.
