The hidden gem of the Canary Islands
On the east coast of Fuerteventura there are two main golf courses for you to play, Golf Club Salinas de Antigua and Fuerteventura Golf Club. Both of which provide plenty of entertainment as you make your way through 18 holes of luscious fairways and greens without too many difficulties to face.
Golf Club Salinas de Antigua was opened in 2006 and designed to include classic links features such as wide fairways, open landscapes and of course, sea views. It is a very pretty course with no great difficulties allowing you to enjoy your time on the course with your friends, taking in the sunset views with a post-round drink.
Fuerteventura Golf Club is a previous host of the Spanish Open back in 2004 and true championship course for anyone brave enough to play off the back tees. From the middle tees however, it is a very accessible course with several water hazards that you’ll need to navigate before approaching large greens.
