Son Gual hosted the Mallorca Senior Open for the first time in May 2009, when former Ryder Cup Captain Ian Woosnam compared the greens to those at Augusta National. The 1991 Masters winner said,
"It's a bit like Augusta. There are a lot of slopes on the greens. You've got to get the ball the right side of the hole - If you don't you'll be struggling. Miss it on the wrong side and you're dead."
In 2009 Son Gual also made it into Golf World's prestigious top 100 European Golf Courses list. Golf World's description of the course said,
"The course is laid out in two very distinctive halves, the front nine running along the extremity of the estate, with the second encompassed within its centre - making it one of the more spectacular courses in the Mediterranean region."
Liverpool winger Albert Riera, has gone on record to say that it is his favourite course, and fellow Mallorcan, Wimbledon Champion Rafael Nadal, is another regular visitor.
Golden Balls presenter Jasper Carrott and Sky Sports pundits Jamie Redknapp, Andy Gray, Alan McInally and Alan Smith are just some of the British Celebrities to have been seen walking Son Gual's pristine fairways.
