Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca has appointed Joan González Camarero-Nuñez as its new head professional.

Camarero-Nuñez, who has been a PGA-certified professional since 2014, took up his new position at the Spanish club last month and has replaced John Verhappen, who has returned to The Netherlands.

The Spaniard, a four-time winner of the Balearic Professional Pairs Championship between 2014 and 2017, and the 2018 Balearic Islands Professional Individual champion, coaches in Spanish, Catalan, English and German and has wasted no time in getting to know Alcanada’s members, offering a series of exclusive free one-hour classes.

Camarero-Nuñez said: “It’s a great privilege to join a club with such a great reputation as Alcanada. With a world-class golf course coupled with outstanding teaching facilities, it offers one of the best golf experiences in Europe and I’m really excited about what lies ahead.”

Kristoff Both, Club de Golf Alcanada’s director of golf, added: “Joan is a well-known figure in golf in the Balearic Islands and comes to us as one of the region’s outstanding young, up-and-coming coaches. We’re thrilled that he will be leading our team at the Lighthouse Golf Academy and he will be a great asset to everyone at the club.”
