Mallorca to show-off stunning golf courses by hosting 2018 Rafa Nadal Golf Challenge


Some big names in the golfing industry – along with avid fans – are arriving on the Balearic Island of Mallorca this week for the 2018 Rafa Nadal Golf Challenge.

The stunning island boasts an impressive array of golf courses, and is one of the top European destinations for the sport, now rivalling the traditional leaders of the Algarve and Costa Del Sol. British buyers account for around 35-40% of all buyers on the island of Mallorca, closely followed by German, Austrian and Swiss buyers, demonstrating a truly international appeal of the golfing scene.

This week, these stunning courses will be on full display as the challenge launches on February 15. Starting at Golf Son Servera on the first day of the competition – which is hosted by Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC - competitors will then continue to Pula Golf with the tournament ending at Golf Son Gual, showcasing the best of the world class golf courses on offer on the island.

The challenge will be celebrated at the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre in Manacor, Mallorca, and will see a number of Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate companies from around the world partake in the golf challenge.

Notably these will include a team led by Philip White, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. Rafa Nadal will also be leading a team to compete alongside the Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates.

“We are thrilled to be the host country of this event in Mallorca, and are excited to showcase the outstanding golf offering to our fellow affiliates in association with the Rafa Nadal academy,” says Paul Kempe, owner of Balearics Sotheby’s International Realty. “Mallorca is becoming increasingly popular amongst golf lovers and the tournament is testament to the lifestyle opportunities Balearics Sotheby’s International Realty properties can offer clients.” 

Maribel Nadal, a spokesperson from the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre adds: “We are excited to welcome the Sotheby’s International Realty team to compete with the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre. We are extremely proud of our longstanding relationship with Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty and look forward to welcoming teams from across the globe.”
