A golf holiday to Tenerife in the Canary Islands is the perfect option for year-round warm weather golf with average temperatures of 22 degrees and a diverse selection of high-quality golf courses. From the seaside and parkland to links-style courses – there is something to suit every type of golfer in Tenerife. There are nine courses on the island in total, but we’ve selected three of our favourites to explore.
Buenavista Golf Club
The golf course at Buenavista Golf Club is a seaside course located in North West Tenerife’s Daute Isla Baja region and accessible from both Tenerife’s North and South Airports. The memorable 18-hole course was designed by Seve Ballesteros in 2003 and follows the classic Seve layout of six par threes, six par fours and six par five holes, with greens that border right on the rocky coastline.
Although it’s slightly off the beaten track, many visitors confirm that it’s worth the journey to spend the day playing at Buenavista, providing a challenging test and scenic play for both high and low handicaps.
Costa Adeje Golf Club
The Costa Adeje Golf Club is situated in Los Olivos (North-West of the popular tourist area of Las Americas) and features two courses – an 18-hole, par 72 and a 9-hole, par 33. Adeje looks out onto the sea and the surrounding mountains for truly scenic play. It’s well suited for those with a higher handicap and has a 45000m2 practice area which is excellent for those who want to perfect their play before challenging themselves to a few rounds of golf.
Designed by Pepe Gancedo, the course opened in 1998 and has swiftly grown in popularity ever since. Adeje also has a well-equipped clubhouse, pro shop, restaurant, bar and terrace for relaxing after a challenging game.
Abama Golf Club
The Abama Golf Club is set within the hills of Tenerife’s Western side, overlooking fellow Canary Island, La Gomera. The course is managed by the Ritz Carlton Abama Resort and provides a challenging play for even the most experienced golfers.
Abama is designed by Dave Thomas who has designed the course with the surrounding nature in mind, letting the landscape’s contours flow effortlessly among the banana plantations, palm trees, lakes, and streams. The course is elevated up to 315m above sea level in places and is particularly spectacular when played at sunrise or sunset.
