Discover Tenerife golf for a completely unique experience
Tenerife golf courses are as unique as they are beautiful to look at, from the black sand bunkers at Golf del Sur, the striking coastal design of Buenavista Golf Club and the first-class hospitality at The Ritz-Carlton Abama. One of the top golf courses on the island is Golf Las Americas, a brilliant parkland design that requires accuracy off the tee as you navigate winding fairways and doglegs.
The course features plenty of water hazards creating an enticing risk and reward element however, with many small greens which strategy would you go for?
Buenavista is arguably the most visually striking golf course in Tenerife as a handful of holes lead you out close to the water’s edge where nerves of steel are required to keep the ball in play. Designed by Seve Ballesteros, the course is relatively open leaving you exposed to occasional strong winds, however, the layout is a stroke of genius that you’ll want to play over and over.
