Tenerife, the promised land of golf

Golf is one of the most British of all sports, there is no doubt about that. Britain abounds with perfectly manicured evergreen fields; what is not so abundant is a climate suitable for the practice of such outdoor sport. That is why golf in Tenerife is a kind of promised land for players from all over the world.

The Canarian climate allows playing at any time of the year.

Yes to Tenerife’s climatic excellence If we add a certain tradition coming from the frequent British presence on the island and a careful attention to the technical aspects of the courses, Tenerife becomes something like a small paradise where high level courses abound, framed in environments that, because of their landscapes and their varied leisure offer, offer us a high quality overall tourist experience.

We have no less than nine golf courses in Tenerife, distributed throughout the island, although the southern area has a higher concentration. Some are part of larger hotel complexes and resorts, and in other cases we find more modest courses. But in all cases there is careful design, excellent maintenance and a well-trained staff.

We are going to travel the island from south to north flying over some of the best places to play golf in Tenerife; surely some of these courses are not far from your next vacation destination on the island. Will you join us?

Play golf in Tenerife South

Several of the golf courses in Tenerife South are among the best in Spain.
among the best in Spain
although we know that there is nothing written about tastes. It is difficult to mention only three…


Golf del Sur:
A reference since its opening in 1987. Located in the municipality of San Miguel de Abona, this 27-hole course is quite demanding, the black sand bunkers attract attention and the beautiful views of the Atlantic make it difficult to concentrate. When events are held at Golf del Sur, Tenerife comes to the forefront of world golf.


Abama Golf:
Another golfing must in Tenerife, this time on the exclusive coastal strip of Guía de Isora. The 18-hole course was designed by Dave Thomas and is known for being quite undulating. It has the essential amenities, golf school and truly spectacular views of La Gomera.


Golf Las Américas:
Located in the homonymous area of Adeje, its 18 holes constitute a beautiful but complicated course (and even more so considering that a club card with valid handicap is required). It has a large number of ancillary facilities and services, including perhaps the best accessory store in the archipelago.

Play golf in Tenerife North

The misty north of Tenerife also has its fields, and some of them of enormous prestige. In fact, this is where the love story between the Canary Islands and golf began.

Real Club de Golf de Tenerife: Founded in 1932 in Tacoronte by British expatriates. There are 18 holes distributed along extremely undulating fairways, between which a powerful wooded area shades the course. With a medium difficulty (par 71), it is open to guests from Monday to Friday; it is the closest golf option in Tenerife to Santa Cruz.

Golf La Rosaleda: The Puerto de la Cruz course is small, with only 9 holes, but very enjoyable and with a beautiful surrounding landscape: banana fields, the ocean, the Orotava Valley and Mount Teide. Ideal for beginners in the practice of this sport or to train the short game, it has professional teachers and the green fee is more than affordable.

Buenavista Golf: Known as the Severiano Ballesteros course, it is located next to the Meliá Hacienda del Conde, one of the best hotels with golf course in Tenerife and one of the most distinguished in the area. Complex, fun, with many water obstacles and breathtaking mountains in the background. A great little gem in the north of the island.

“It’s almost impossible to remember how tragic the world can be when you’re playing golf.” – Robert Lynd

In addition, the island offers the opportunity to combine this passion with other activities, such as, to give a couple of examples, a local wine tasting in a winery, sailing the coast in search of cetaceans or a night contemplating a sky full of stars. Or, why not, spend the rest of our time at the beach. Playing golf in Tenerife involves much more than just golf.

I’m sure there’s a field not too far from where you are right now; go there, find out a little information and take the plunge. You will soon understand the passion that fans feel for going miles and miles hitting a ball into a hole.
