Golf in Tenerife

Tenerife tourist officials have long been peering at the state of play in Portugal and have ruefully decided that they deserve a piece of the golf pie. And why not? With average year round temperatures of 22 C and very little rain to speak of, the playing conditions are ideal.

Nine courses currently exist on Tenerife, plus one in La Gomera, with several others at various stages of development.

The most recent additions to the club scene include the magnificently tropical Golf Tecina on the neighbouring island of La Gomera, the Seve Ballesteros-designed Buenavista Golf in Tenerife’s rugged northwest, and Abama Golf providing 18 spectacular holes on Tenerife’s west coast.

For those in the south of Tenerife i.e. Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje, fairways can be found on the doorstep at Golf Las Americas and Costa Adeje Golf, with Los Palos just a 10-minute drive for those looking for a quick and easy nine holes.
