Golf

Today there are seven 18-hole courses on the island (five on the south side). You can book starting times through the Ving golf host or through our service telephone. This will give you a 5 euro reduction per green fee and avoids you giving out your credit card number, which some golf courses will demand when booking starting times.

Golf courses on the south side of the island:

Meloneras golf

One of the more recent golf courses on Gran Canaria. The first nine holes are played as if on a classic park course. Starting on the tenth, you probably commence the most beautiful nine holes on Gran Canaria, with a breathtaking view over the sea. This is where all the “training tip” pictures in Svensk Golf are shot.

Anfi golf

This course was opened in October 2007, designed by Von Hagge in an ”Arizona style”. The eighth hole is the most expensive ever built in Spain. This spectacular golf experience will linger with you for a long time.

Salobre – south course

A very agreeable park course in excellent condition, with the green areas creating a spectacular contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. Since the course is laid out in the mountains it is rather hilly, and an ordinary hundred meter shot may sometimes require “two extra clubs” to make the challenge more interesting.

Salobre – north course

A veritable roller coaster. Since this is the most challenging course on the south side we recommend a handicap of no more than 10 to play here.

Campo de golf de Maspalomas

A long, flat course in and around the verdant Maspalomas Nature Park. This is a fairly simple course, but don’t let yourself be fooled by the layout. The green areas are newly built and can be ever so demanding.

Golf courses on the north side of the island:

Bandama Golf

Gran Canaria can boast two of the oldest golf courses in Spain - Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas, on an plateau at the edge of the Bandama crater, about 15 kilometres from Las Palmas. Book well ahead, no playing during the weekends. Tel: +34 928 350 104 Fax: +34 928 350 110. E-mail: rcglp@step.es

El Cortijo Golf

An oasis close to the highway between Las Palmas and Telde, with an 18-hole course and a good restaurant, Meson Cinco Jotas. Tel: +34 928 711 111 Fax: +34 928 714 905 E-mail: clubcampo@elcortijo.es
