Tenerife

Tenerife

Year round sun, quality golf, what's not to like?

Tenerife is the goto Island for sunshine no matter what month of the year. A great climate on an island which is committed to the needs of it's visitors is the perfect golf destination.

The question is, 'How good are the courses in Tenerife?' so we took a short trip to find some answers.

enerife consists of 9 golf courses (1 not technically on the Island!) the majority of which are in the South of the Island, so for access this would be Tenerife South airport meaning a 20 minute transfer to the central hotels at Las Americas, Costa Adeje, Los Cristinaos.

Spread over 30 minute journey are Amarilla, Golf Del Sur, Las Americas, Costa Adeje and Abama Golf Courses and they all share magnificent coastal views and situated next to/within the main hotel destinations, bars and restaurants.

On the North West of the Island is the Seve designed Buenavista Golf Club, unfortunately I never got to play but looking at this course makes me want to return and a must play for me personally!

Further North is Rosaleda and Real Club de Tenerife. If you fancy something a little different then course number 9 can be found on the Island of La Gomera which is a short boat trip from Tenerife to play the Donald Steel design Tecina Golf Course.

Each of the courses offers different challenges at different budgets, for more information on each course please follow the links.

and aside from the golf....

I don't think Tenerife needs to much of an introduction! The choice is yours, booze, bars and late nights or a more refined glass of wine and a nice restaurant.

The hotels cater for all budgets and needs, I loved the feel at the popular Las Mandrigueras situated next to Las Americas golf course, the food was excellent and rooms very elegant!

In summary Tenerife is a great golf destination with plenty of courses within easy reach of each other meaning planning a weeks break and taking in some golf is nice and easy, post golf activities in abundance and average temperature of 23 degress, like I said, what's not to like!
