Tenerife golf resorts

Tee  off  in  Tenerife,  fast  establishing  itself  as  a  world-class  golfing  destination, and be amazed by the range of courses on offer. And with average temperatures of 23-degress, visitors can play golf all year round. The island boasts nine superb golf courses, all very different and with their own character  and  flanked  by  Tenerife’s  breathtaking  mountain  and  coastal  vistas. Golfers can also enjoy spectacular views of Mount Teide which can be seen from some of the courses.

The  18-hole  Buenavista  Golf  is  a  true  golfers’  delight.  This  impressive  course enjoys close proximity to the coastline but watch out for the waterfall and lake which  require  great  precision  but  lend  a  fresh  feel  to  this  unusual  course  in North Tenerife. Also located in the north of the island is the Real Club de Golf de Tenerife – Spain’s second oldest golf course.

Several  courses  congregate  in  the  south  of  the  island  where  visitors  will  be perfecting their swing to the sound of the Atlantic Ocean in the background. Literally next to the ocean, the 18-hole Amarilla Golf & Country Club, designed by  Donald  Steel,  is  one  of  the  island’s  most  spectacular  courses  if  not  a  little challenging when golfers have to drive the ball right over the waves to the next green on the 5th hole!

There’s also Golf del Sur – a 27-hole course which played host to the first Tenerife Ladies Open in 2002. Last year’s Open took place from 22 – 27 September at Costa Adeje golf course and attracted some 120 professional players. The next Ladies Open will run in the Buenavista Golf Course, in Tenerife North. Also popular places to play a round in Tenerife South are Golf Las Americas and Abama  Golf  courses  affording  stunning  views  of  La  Gomera  and  lush  tropical gardens.

The high standard of the island’s courses, plus the overall facilities, have enabled Tenerife to host major international professional tournaments.  Since hosting its first major international tournament in 1989, the island has gone on to stage a total of twelve competitions on the PGA European Tour and the Ladies European Tour. Renowned names in the world of golf have won tournaments on Tenerife like José María Olazábal, David Gilford and Mark James, three Ryder Cup players; and Raquel Carriedo and Elisabeth Esterl, both Solheim Cup players.

Other  top  players  that  have  teed  off  at  Tenerife’s  golf  courses  include;  Sergio García,  Miguel  Ángel  Jiménez,  José  María  Cañizares,  Manolo  Piñero,  Pepín Rivero, Antonio Garrido, Santi Luna, Colin Montgomerie, Sam Torrance, Bernhard Gallacher, Paul McGinley, Vijah Singh and Ian Woosnam.
