WHAT EVOLUTION HAS YOUR COMPANY HAD IN THE SECTOR IN THESE LAST 10 YEARS? In 2007, the first PINKO store was inaugurated in Mallorca. The brand was not well known, the beginnings were not easy. With a dazzling store in San Nicolas Street, we had to work hard and very closely with the clients, presenting the product with a lot of love. Making events, parades ... to show the collections. 10 years later, PINKO in Mallorca is consolidated, as evidenced by the two flagship stores, PINKO in Puerto Portals and PINKO Palma. WHAT DO YOU THINK LUX - GOLF HAS MEANT IN THESE 10 YEARS FOR MALLORCA? First I will say what it has meant to me, a great work of Networking, where many companies that are dedicated to luxury we have been able to meet, and in many cases collaborate together, hence a greater growth a greater scope and cost sharing. Lux-Golf-Mallorca makes our island a highlight and is a showcase more. WHAT FUTURE DOES THE NEXT 10 YEARS HOLD? Mallorca can only get better. with respect to my sector Mallorca has been filled with boutiques mono-brands of quality. This shows that it is an attractive market, Mallorca is interested and can compete with any European city. Malorca likes luxury and luxury likes Mallorca, perfect symbiosis.

WHAT EVOLUTION HAS YOUR COMPANY HAD IN THE SECTOR IN THESE LAST 10 YEARS? Arabella Golf Mallorca has grown in this period, in workload and increasing the company size. In terms of size, in 2007 we opened Golf Son Quint and in 2009 Golf Son Quint Pitch + Putt. In addition, in 2016 we opened the new clubhouse at Golf Son Vida and also in 2016 at Golf Son Muntaner there were significant improvements. On the one hand, we made reforms in the clubhouse, improving especially the facilities for events. On the other hand, we made an integral change of grass throughout the field, planting a type of grass more suitable for our land, our climate and for the water recycled irrigation system we have. All in all, these have been years of constant evolution and improvement of our facilities. WHAT DO YOU THINK LUX - GOLF HAS MEANT IN THESE 10 YEARS FOR MALLORCA? Lux-Golf is partly to blame for this positive evolution of the golf courses in Mallorca, as it has been, and continues to be, present in many distribution platforms and golf channels where it has been able to promote the golf destination of Mallorca. In addition, it is a very comfortable and high quality guide, reflecting what the destination is. Golf courses and other complementary facilities. WHAT FUTURE DOES THE NEXT 10 YEARS HOLD? Well I hope that at least it is equal or better than these last 10 years. It will be an interesting future for our golf. Mallorca must continue to promote itself as one of the best golf destinations. We must promote the number of golf courses we have in Mallorca, as it is sometimes unknown to many of our visitors, and we have an unbeatable destination: good golf courses and facilities, a variety of hotel facilities, excellent cuisine, good air connections , security, etc. There fore, I hope that Lux-Golf continues to support us as it has done so far.

15 05 G O L F D E PONIENTE Opened in 1978 with a fabulous John Harris design,T Golf & Country Club Poniente is one of the oldest and most respected courses in Mallorca. The 18 holes, par 72, 6430mts course runs through beautiful rolling hills, majestic pines, seven lakes, numerous bunkers ,its wide fairways and large greens make a great challenge to any level golfer. The views from the 8th and 11th holes alone are worth a visit and give the player an appreciation for the rugged beauty of this course. Hole 14, is in my opinion, one of the best Par 4’s that I have played in my life. This hole, I would say, is the star of its magnificent designer John Harris. The sensations that the player feels at the tee, its seductions and dangers, the perfect placement of its bunkers, its lake strategically placed in the line of play, its symbolical watermill, its out of bounds and the design of the green are unique and any player, however many time he plays the hole, will always find it different. For me, as a golf course architect, it has served as a lesson” (Pepe Gancedo).

15 06 REAL GOLF BENDINAT One of the most dramatic courses on the island, Real Golf de Bendinat runs through the rugged terrain just outside the city of Palma. Weighing in at just 5,668 metres, this par 70 is one of the shorter courses in Mallorca but what it lacks in distance it makes up for with some truly unique and beautiful holes and no matter how you shoot the scenery makes it well worth a visit. Designed by F.W. Hawtree and opened in 1986, expect the unexpected at Bendinat. From the very first hole the player will get a feel of what Bendinat is all about. The elevated tee, blind shot, tight out of bounds, the bunkerprotected green are all things that the player will have to contend with throughout the round. In other words be prepared for some precision play and a bit of guessing. The good news is once you have played Bendinat and learned its tricks your scoring will certainly improve for this is a course you will want to play more than once.

WHAT EVOLUTION HAS YOUR COMPANY HAD IN THE SECTOR IN THESE LAST 10 YEARS? We are in full expansion, which is a wonderful and very exciting moment. Our tour begins in 2006, with the acquisition of the OD Ocean Drive hotel and the OD Can Jaume agrotourism, both in Ibiza. In April 2014 we opened OD Port Portals in Mallorca, in 2016 OD Talamanca, again in Ibiza. In 2017, we have made the leap to mainland with the opening of OD Barcelona in August. New projects will be announced, although we can already say that the next ones are Miami and South of France. WHAT DO YOU THINK LUX - GOLF HAS MEANT IN THESE 10 YEARS FOR MALLORCA? In addition to being present at the essential golf events, AlĂ­cia has created the ideal formula of synergy between the companies and establishments that we are announced in LUX. Tournaments in the best fields and with super interesting prizes, fashion shows in wonderful places, fun meetings for breakfast, lunch or dinner, which we all love to attend, because every year exceeds expectations. WHAT FUTURE WE WILL HAVE IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS? Mallorca is an incredible and wonderful place. We must take care of the infrastructures, respect the environment, continue to improve the quality of the hotel sector and control the saturation, so that services are not put at risk, or access to housing for professionals who want to work on the island. In this way we will be able to maintain the attractiveness and sense of security at all levels, both for visitors, residents and investors.

SANTA PONSA I Santa Ponsa I is the first in a group of three courses, although its sister courses, II and III, are both private member’s only clubs. Number I, of course, was the first built, that back in 1977 with design by Folco Nardi and José Gancedo. Since then it has been the site of numerous tournaments including six Balearic Opens and the European Club Championship. Santa Ponsa I is one of the longest courses on the island. At 6,543 metres from the white tees distance is a major factor here. This is especially true on the 590 metres, par 5, 10th hole, one of the longest in all of Europe. There are also two other par five holes of over 500 metres, five par fours of over 400 metres and a 220 metres par three. The good news is that the fairways are generally wide and allow ample room for you to really go for it off the tees. Then again the numerous water hazards and bunkers will help keep you in line.

WHAT EVOLUTION HAS YOUR COMPANY HAD IN THE SECTOR IN THESE LAST 10 YEARS? In the last 10 years, golf in the Balearic Islands has undergone an evolution towards higher quality standards. This has been necessary due to the increased competition in the market and the age of some of the facilities. In our case, this has led us, among other things, to renovate the greens and the irrigation system of the Santa Ponsa 1 field in 2010. In 2011 the Greenes of the Santa Ponsa 2 field were also changed, and in the 2015, a new Clubhouse was built in Santa Ponsa 2. On the other hand, in 2010 we had the opportunity to buy a stake in the company that owns the Real Golf de Bendinat, which we then managed. In 2014 the irrigation of 9 holes was renewed and the greens of the 18 holes were changed. As a whole, there have been years in which money has been invested in the facilities to improve the player experience, and to optimize issues of maintenance and water use with new irrigation systems. WHAT DO YOU THINK LUX - GOLF HAS MEANT IN THESE 10 YEARS FOR MALLORCA? Lux I think it has been a complement in this evolution towards improvement and quality promotion. It is a publication that has some â&#x20AC;&#x153;advertising partnersâ&#x20AC;? that are good representatives of what we should look for quality tourism in Mallorca and that has therefore been a good channel for image distribution and what Mallorca can offer. WHAT FUTURE WE WILL HAVE IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS? I think it will be an interesting future. Mallorca has positioned itself as a safe destination for general tourism as well as tourism for second homes. I think that if we can work with legal security, and in a positive environment towards visitors, the future of Mallorca and Mallorca will be very positive. We have good infrastructures, a hotel plant that has been renovated in recent years, and an environment that attracts investors from different places to invest in Mallorca. In the Golf sector, we can see this very clearly. There are a good number of fields in the hands of German investors, who have opted for the island. Two or three Spanish non-Mallorcan fields that have also opted to invest here. A field owned by a Chinese group, then clear fields in local hands. This variety shows that Mallorca is a place that has an excellent base for the next 10 years to be very interesting and positive. Now, we need to continue to have market conditions (fiscal, regulatory, etc.) that allow all that capital to feel comfortable on the island, and continue investing to maintain facilities that are exemplary.

G O L F IBIZA With an extension of more than ten kilometers of intense countryside, the Golf Course is located just seven kilometers from the capital of Ibiza and is halfway between the towns of Jesus and Santa Eulalia. In addition, in the municipal area of Santa Eulalia, it has two courses with very different characteristics located in a beautiful valley near the Ibizan coast, from where you can appreciate the unique and spectacular views. The design and courses allow you to enjoy golf with family and friends whilst taking pleasure in the scenery. Among the changes in the facilities are great improvements in equipment, maintenance and conditioning of the Golf Course, where both the Greens, as well as the bunkers and the extensive routes of the lanes, have been carefully maintained and improved in great detail.

Almudena Soriano CASI NO DE MALLORCA

WHAT EVOLUTION HAS YOUR COMPANY HAD IN THE SECTOR IN THESE LAST 10 YEARS? During these last years our sector has changed at a spectacular rate. The Casino has become more of a social meeting point where you can enjoy a cocktail, have dinner or listen to good music. Since our transfer from Sol de Mallorca to Palma, the number of visitors has grown a lot in recent years, especially customers whose main motivation is not only the game but to enjoy an original and fun alternative entertainment. WHAT DO YOU THINK LUX-GOLF HAS MEANT IN THESE 10 YEARS FOR MALLORCA? Without a doubt, Lux Golf is not just another magazine. Alicia Polo manages to bring together the most representative firms in a guide where the client can find the best of the Island. The added value is the large number of events and collaborations between partners personally promoted by Alicia that generate visibility and differentiation for our brands, in My opinion is the key to its deserved success. WHAT FUTURE DOES THE NEXT 10 YEARS HOLD? We face the great challenge of differentiating ourselves. The way of communicating and managing information will continue to change dramatically. We will have to continue incorporating the new tools and adapt to the demands of an increasingly informed and demanding customer. But I believe that the work for the excellence in the service and the focus on the client will never change and will continue to be the base of the authentic success and the loyalty of our clients.
