Canary Islands

The Canary Islands lie to the west of Morocco in the Atlantic Ocean and their geographical position is such that each of the seven main islands enjoys a wonderfully warm climate with moist Gulf Stream winds ensuring the volcanic landscape always remains lush. Tourism plays a major part in the economy of the islands and millions of tourists arrive every year in search of sunny weather for their vacation.

The Real Federación Española de Golf is divided into nineteen geographical areas and one of these, Federación Canaria de Golf, is the governing body for the game in the Canaries. The islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria each boast seven layouts of 18 holes or more whilst there are four courses on Fuerteventura, two on Lanzarote and one course on La Gomera.

The best golfing layouts are found on the two main islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, though some believe Martin Ebert’s Tecina course on La Gomera is too easily overlooked. Real Las Palmas and Lopesan Meloneras are good tracks on Gran Canaria, as is Las Americas and the 27-hole hole Del Sur complex on Tenerife but all four of these well-regarded courses have now been eclipsed somewhat since the dramatic Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril-designed Anfi Tauro layout was unveiled in the southwest of Gran Canaria in 2006.

We’ve assessed all the contenders for the regional Canary Islands listings. Having previously visited Tenerife and La Gomera, we were in Gran Canaria in the spring of 2019, where we played all seven golf facilities on the island. A few months later, we returned to the Canaries during the winter season to cast an eye over the six golfing layouts in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.
