Golf del Sur of Tenerife

Golf Courses in Paradise 

A privileged environment to play golf

Sports tourism is one of the main reasons why many travelers come to Tenerife. Water sports and adventure sports abound, but golf also has its place on the island. Golf del Sur of Tenerife is probably the best place of all the Canary Islands to practice this sport 

This tourist complex is home to one of the highest-level fields in the Spanish territory. With 27 holes, divided into three 9-hole courses (all of them par 72), it has hosted the Tenerife Open (PGA European Volvo Tour) on four occasions in the early 90s, and twice the Tenerife Ladies Open (2002 and 2007). He has also witnessed two long drive world records, both by Karl Woodward, who broke the 400-yard barrier.  

Three competition courses with a demanding layout in magnificent surroundings  

Golf del Sur of Tenerife occupies an area of 800,000 square meters that extends to the same side of the Atlantic coast of Tenerife, which makes it a wonderful viewpoint to the sea. The course was designed by Pepe Gancedo and remodeled in 2005 by Manuel Piñero thinking so much about offering players an enjoyment that goes beyond the game.

Apart from the numerous services offered by the club, the course hosts numerous tournaments and events. It should be noted that it has ISO 14001 and Biosphere Golf certifications, which guarantee sustainable and responsible practices concerning the environment and local economic and social development.

A field integrated in its environment

One of the great attractions of Golf del Sur of Tenerife is, in the words of the players themselves, the “local touch” that does not let us forget where we are. Thus, the very dark volcanic sand of the bunkers, or the ochre rocky ravine (so typical of the area) that flanks the 3rd hole of the North Course is the distinctive note that Tenerife’s geology contributes to the layout.

At this point, it is not necessary to mention the excellent climate enjoyed by Golf del Sur, Tenerife and the rest of the Canary archipelago. Mild temperature and clear skies throughout the year make any calendar date perfect for coming here to play. The autochthonous vegetation that surrounds the course and the local fauna, especially the birds, are also very attractive for the players.

Its location on the island is another great attraction. Located in the exclusive surroundings of the coast of San Miguel de Abona, very close to the airport of Tenerife Sur and not too far from Los Cristianos, the access is easy and fast and offers numerous and varied options of leisure in the vicinity for those moments in which we want to leave the green.

In addition, with the San Miguel Marina right next door, with its modern nautical facilities, there is no excuse not to combine the practice of golf with other sports, excursions to the impressive natural surroundings of the island, to its most picturesque villages and, of course, to its excellent beaches (Montaña Roja, El Médano or Los Abrigos are right next doors).

First-class facilities

The services and facilities of Golf del Sur of Tenerife are another of its strengths and are among the most appreciated by those who visit the course. The individual or couple courses offered by the professional Paco Millán are a great way to start golfing or improve your technique.

The terrain is impeccably maintained. Apart from the aforementioned respect for sustainable environmental practices, the use of local flora enriches the player’s experience. It is appreciated not only in the field itself but in the surroundings, the driving range, tennis, putting green and chipping green …

Of course, there is the possibility of having a buggy, a trolley or an electric motorbike, as well as renting a set of clubs. Logically, there’s a great restaurant to get your strength back. There is also a shop in the Pro-Shop area where you will find all the clothes and accessories you cannot miss.

But the main thing is the high level of its staff, with the Caddy Masters at the head, always attentive to the needs of players and willing to make your stay as pleasant as possible. A real luxury within reach of all those who visit the complex.
