With over 3,500 palms on site, Costa Teguise Golf Club is a lush oasis surrounded by the breathtakingly arid landscape of the slopes of the volcano that it was built on.
The golf course was designed in 1978 by the famous British architect Commander John Harris. It enjoys easy access to hotels and restaurants as well as the beach, ocean and local cultural attractions and is only a 20-minute drive from the modern Arrecife International Airport and only 10 minutes from the island's capital Arrecife.
Unusually, there are no developments around the course, so you can fully enjoy the views of the ocean and volcanoes at almost every hole. The greens and fairways are surrounded by local plants and trees, such as the beautiful Canary Island Date palm, which lends this all-year course a tropical air.
It is a par-72 course which stretches to around 6,700 yards at its longest, which, while not overly long by modern standards, features numerous doglegs which brings all of the golfer's clubs into play. The "picon" (volcanic sand) and the wind add an extra challenge to the pleasure of playing each hole.
The course also benefits from an excellent clubhouse with a pro-shop, restaurant and coffee bar. A full range of equipment is available for hire from half and full sets of clubs through to golf buggies.
