Salobre (Old)Telde, Canarias
- AddressGC-1, 1, km 53, 35212 Telde, Las Palmas, Spain
The Old (South) course at Salobre Golf Resort comprises 18 holes of a 36-hole golf complex within a residential estate near Maspalomas on the south coast of Gran Canaria. Ron Kirby added additional holes to the property in 2008, creating an 18-hole New course (formerly the North) which complements the original South layout.
Designed by Roland Favret and opened for play in 2000, the South course measures just over 5,800 metres from the back tees, playing to a par of 71. Palm-lined fairways weave in and out of old lava outcrops, leading to tiered greens that demand accurate approach play – though thankfully, only two holes, the 8th and the 12th, have water hazards protecting the putting surfaces.
There are five par threes on the scorecard and they vary enormously in length, from 106 to 200 metres. The best short hole of the three on the front nine is the 8th ("The Mill"), played sharply downhill to a shallow green that sits behind a lovely little pond. The "signature hole" on the course is regarded as the 200-metre 11th, where the tee shot is again played downhill, this time to an offset green with a large bunker on the front right edge of the putting surface.
