The most popular courses for playing golf are in the south of the isle. But some people seem to prefer the northern part of the island that is more green and also offers some very nice golfing facilities.

What makes the golf courses of Tenerife so attractive is the care with which they are laid out, giving the impression of a genuine Canarian garden. Some courses have very reasonable prices and special offers for families.

Tenerife has many attractions to offer but it is certainly a place to consider, if one likes to spend a holiday playing on the golf course.

Golf Courses in Tenerife

Probably the best-known of the island’s courses is Buenavista del Norte, located in the remote north of the island. Designed by five-times major winner Severiano Ballesteros, the 18-hole clifftop course has the sea on one side and the Teno mountains as a backdrop on the other.
The clubhouse, with a large lake in front of it, has superb panoramic views over the 6,019-metre course and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
A few years ago the Buenavista course won a prestigious national award at the Spanish Golf Federation Gala in Madrid for the attention paid to the environment in its construction.

Also in the north of the island you find Tenerife’s oldest golf club – and the second oldest club in Spain – the Real Golf Club de Tenerife at El Peñon, Tacoronte. Founded in 1932, the 18-hole par 71 course offers magnificent views to Mount Teide.

Most of the island courses are in the sunnier south.

Amarilla Golf near San Miguel de Abona is also close to the sea and has some spectacular holes where the ocean comes into play. The 18-hole par 71 course was designed by Donald Steel. Other on-site facilities include pitch and putt, a swimming pool and horse riding.

Golf Costa Adeje in the municipality of Adeje has 27 holes in three par 36 nine-hole sections with a variety of obstacles such as gorges and lakes adding to the interest. Playing Golf here at Costa Adeje affords breathtaking ocean views, wide greens and a spacious clubhouse with large terraces.

Golf del Sur in San Miguel de Abona also offers 27 holes, set among ravines that make it a difficult test for all but the most accurate of golfers. The course regularly hosts championship events on the men’s and women’s professional circuits.

Golf Las Americas is located in the heart of the island’s biggest resort, Playa de las Americas. Designed by British professional John Jacobs, the par 72 course is a real oasis of calm set in a natural amphitheatre facing the sea, offering magnificent views across the ocean to the nearby island of La Gomera.

Centro de Golf Los Palos in Las Galletas in the municipality of Arona is a nine-hole par 27 course designed by Jose Maria Olazabal. The relatively flat nature of this par-three course makes it ideal for beginners or older golfers who find the tough nature of some of the island’s other courses too demanding. The course has plenty of water obstacles, making it especially challenging for those who want to improve their short game.

Abama Grand Hotel Golf Resort at Playa San Juan in Guí­a de Isora is the gem at the heart of a magnificent complex of five-star hotel and luxury villas. The 18-hole course, designed by Dave Thomas, has 22 lakes and over 90,000 palm trees.
