We looked at Lanzarote but decided against it for a golf trip since there were just two courses. I've been to Lanzarote a few times on non-golfing trips though and think it's a really cool place.
I'd love to see some pictures from the golf courses there if you have any?
For the Tenerife-trip we stayed in Playa de las Americas, which is close to the majority of the golf courses.
Also a lot of restaurants and bars there - and a really fun minigolf course with 2x18 hole courses and a bar, which was perfect for the evenings
We played 7 courses during our two weeks on Tenerife starting with Golf Las Americas:
It's a nice course which is quite fun to play. Not as spectacular as some of the others, but very pretty with some waterfalls and ponds.
Next was Amarilla which was a really fun course. Right by the coast, so lots of great looking holes near the ocean and nice wide fairways.
Then Abama - Tenerifes most expensive golf course at 200 euro. They've imported a ton of palmtrees and made lakes and stuff there, but unless you stay at the resort that owns the course, it's very expensive to play.
They have free balls on the range and some fruit and stuff in the (mandatory) buggies, but while it's a nice looking course, we felt it was pretty overpriced. A surprising amount of blind tee-shots and other shots as well, which we're not fans of - especially when we only get to play a course once.
Luckily we were paired with a couple who'd played the course before and could point us in the right direction when we weren't sure where to hit.
Then over to La Gomera and Tecina Golf. There's a ferry leaving from Las Americas which takes about 40 minutes iirc. Lots of dolphines to look at during the voyage too
About a 40 minute drive from the ferry to the golf course where you're shuttled up to the first tee. You start at the top and then work your way down towards the club house again.
Really great course, with great scenery.
Golf del Sur was next and a very good course also - situated quite close to the airport, so any golf playing plane-watchers could combine their interests there
Then off to Buenavista - situated on the northwest coast, it was the only course that was more than half an hours drive, but worth the about 1.5 hours drive each way.
Really spectactular views with the mountains on one side and the coast on the other.
Finally, Costa Adeje which was also a great course placed right on the coast.
Had a very tough uphill par 3 hole with lots of bushes in front but at least it provided some income for the woman who was sitting there selling all the balls she'd gotten from the bushes
All our golf was pre-booked through http://www.tenerifegolf-services.com/index.php
which worked very well and I'd definitely recommend them.
They supplied the ferry-tickets for La Gomera also, and could arrange transport to/from the course there too. We had a rental car, so didn't use that though.
Some of the courses were busy so pre-booking is probably a good idea. Abama in particular since it mainly caters to guests staying at the resort.
We were there end of November/start of December and the courses were all in good shape. Some were quite busy, but luckily not too much waiting and slow play.
I'll post some pics from Gran Canaria in a few days.
