Golf in the Canary Islands

Luxury Golf in the Canary Islands, Spain

Winter golf is an attractive proposition in the Canary Islands, as the climate is a good one if the winter storms are getting you down, and the Islands offer some great courses. The main centres are on the two biggest islands, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. On Tenerife, the five star Abama resort is a wonderful place to start, both for it’s excellent golf and as a centre for other courses around the island. A short hop from the Tenerife South airport, the course itself is a regular in the top golf courses in Spain, with sea views and a course set to challenge golfers of all standards, while the accommodation offers both luxurious rooms in the resort, or in the luxury villas. A spa and two Michellin restaurants make this a great way to see out the winter in style. Buenavista Golf is another must play on the Island. The course situated on the coast with sea views on every hole, is a firm favourite for golfers visiting the Islands. Costa Adeje in the south of the island is another favourite for visitors, and its 27 holes mean there is a variety of options and challenges for each round, from the original 18 hole ‘Old Course’ with views of the nearby la Gomera island, to the newer 9 holes of Los Lagos, with a series of lakes to negotiate. Golf Las Americas is another must do for visitors. Overlooked by the mountains, and beautifully maintained, add this one to the itinerary.

In Gran Canaria, the first stop is always the stunning Anfi Tauro golf club. Designed as a typical Arizona style desert course, the sea views, the mountain rock and the green velvet make this a wonderful setting for a round of golf. Words like original or glamourous can easily describe this masterpiece. With the Atlantic winds and the changing levels of each hole, this is a challenge to perform, but a fantastic one to enjoy. If you are in the area, Anfi Tauro is easily complemented by the nearby Maspalomas Golf Course. A flat gentle round beside the famous dunes of Maspalomas, with wide fairways and greens, this is a relaxing complement to the trickier Anfi Tauro. If you fancy an unusual setting for your round, the Real Club de Golf Las Palmas offers the chance to play in the crater of an extinct volcano. This is the oldest golf club in Spain, and that in itself might be a reason to visit, but the amazing views and environment make this a special place for a round of golf, and one you should definitely put on the list when you visit the island. Finally Meloneras golf course has all that the golf courses in the Canary Islands offer, with a mountain backdrop, sea views to enjoy, and a great round of golf.

Just what I wanted, a weekend in Barcelona and a week playing golf by the Costa Brava. Nice weather and a fine golf course.
