Instead, Golf Costa Adeje draws its uniqueness from the layout of its fairways, with small plateaus and stone walls, the remnants of a former banana plantation, and from the areas of black volcanic sand that line the paths and that make this course so different to the others that are available to play on the island. Furthermore, the designer of the Golf Costa Adeje course, Pepe Gancedo, has also incorporated a few surprises into the course. The greens are very large and quick throughout and are either sloped or stepped. Without doubt one of the prettiest holes is number four, a par 4 with a touch over 400 metres and with a green on a cliff above the sea. The view over the ocean and the distant island of La Gomera is simply divine.
Par 72 / 6,020 metres. The most beautiful beaches on Tenerife can be found in the south of the island. At the end of the 90s the holiday resort Playas de las Americas became an important centre in this region, in the heart of which lies the golf course Campo de Golf Las Americas. The course is rich in variety and was designed by John Jacobs. There are many water hazards in the form of ditches and lakes, and it is necessary to take care when playing to the greens from the very first hole, where some golfers have seen their ball disappear into the water from the first stroke. This potential fate awaits golfers at many of the holes, for example at the 18th hole, which has a large water hazard to the right of the green. The course at the Campo de Golf Las Americas has in the past been the venue for international tournaments and during our last visit in July 2010 was in excellent condition. Worth mentioning: the parking garage by the entrance means a shady spot for your car is guaranteed.

Without a doubt one of the best golf courses on Tenerife, the course at the Abama Resort in the south west of the island is only a few minutes' drive from the Costa Adeje golf course. The designer of the course, Dave Thomas, called upon all his experience when designing the Abama golf course and this is reflected in its ever-changing nature. The course features 22 lakes, linked together by impressive waterfalls, numerous bunkers and more than 25,000 palm trees. The Abama golf course reaches a high point of 315 metres above sea level and most holes provide spectacular views of the Atlantic and the island of La Gomera. The large greens provide an endless choice of flag positions which, combined with the generous tee areas on each hole, makes the course accessible to golfers with high handicaps and a challenge for even the most experienced golfer.
Par 72 / 5,637 metres. In Golf del Sur, redesigned in 2005 by Manuel Piñero, the island of Tenerife can boast the only 27-hole championship course on the Canary Islands. Situated close to the airport, golfers here can expect a picturesque oasis of palm trees and cacti, with wide fairways and large greens. The numerous bunkers are filled with black volcanic lava sand, which constitutes an additional challenge, and these are best avoided with a precise game. The three 9-hole courses at the Golf del Sur are named Links, Norte and Sur and were gradually expanded and improved from 2005 to 2007. Particular highlights now include the two lakes on holes three, four and five of the Links course and hole three of the Norte course. During all works carried out on the course, particular efforts were made to incorporate the natural, native vegetation of the island into the layout. The Golf del Sur facility also has two putting and chipping greens, a driving range and a clubhouse.
