Travel Guest Post: Top 5 Golf Courses in Tenerife

Tenerife and golf fit like a glove (excuse the pun), the year-round warm weather and long hours of sunshine give the ideal environment to practice your swing. The beautiful volcanic landscape and impressive Mount Teide give a stunning back drop to the courses designed by world-famous golf architects such as Dave Thomas, Seve Ballesteros and Pepe Gancedo.


Golf del Sur

The impressive course at Golf del Sur has hosted the Tenerife Open, the PGA European Tour. There are some tricky holes here including some par four and five shots, a great challenge for experienced golfers. To practice before your round there is a practice bunker, chipping green and putting greens. The club house is built in traditional Canarian style and includes two restaurants, a bar terrace and two equipment shops so everything you need is on site.

Look out for: Black sand bunkers, ravines and palm trees

Length: 18 holes, Par 72 or 9 holes, Par 33

Where to stay: If you are planning a golfing holiday or just fitting in a round of golf to your family holiday, it is recommended to hire a car as there is not much else to do around Golf del Sur. Stay in the nearby resorts of Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos for easy access to the course.


Centro de Golf los Palos

Surrounded by banana trees, this course is perfect for beginners or those who don’t have time to fit in a whole round. Relaxed individual or group lessons are available in various languages and there is also a children’s play area to entertain the little ones whilst you are practicing.
