Long established as an excellent golfing destination, the appeal of golf in Gran Canaria is no great mystery. The climate is wonderful year round and the golf courses are of the highest quality. The majority of the best layouts are found in the desert-type landscape of the south, including the Sheraton Salobre, the visually stunning Anfi Tauro and the superb Maspalomas that was designed by the man who gave us Turnberry, Philip MacKenzie Ross.
Or head to the North of the island where you’ll find two spectacular layouts. Set among beautiful green valleys is the wonderful El Cortijo Club de Campo, a former Spanish Open venue that offers some spectacular sea views. Or you might consider Real Club de Golf de las Palmas, with a spectacular location on the edge of an extinct volcanic crater. If you want all the benefits of a golf break in Spain but without the crowds, Gran Canaria ideal.
