My wife and I fancied some winter sun and having been to Tenerife last year decided to visit Gran Canaria for a week. We played Salobre Old and New, Meloneras and Anfi Tauro (twice).
Meloneras was undoubtedly a course of two halves, a bland and pretty uninteresting front nine is transformed into a challenging and spectacular back nine, with hints of Pinnacle Point in South Africa.
It is difficult to rate this course due to the difference in character. The course was in better condition than either of the Salobre courses, but overall was probably not as interesting as Salobre Old. As with all the course we played on Gran Canaria it was plagued by golfers who should be restricted to the local pitch and putt, and another 5 hour round was the result.
Worth playing for half a dozen holes on the back nine, but having played out once we will not be rushing back.
