ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO PLAY GOLF IN THE SUN ALL YEAR ROUND- #TENERIFE

Photo from Golf Del Sur

Tenerife, one of the best places, if not the best place for golfing all year round  in Europe, there are very few days when the weather stops you playing your favourite game, the sun shines all year.


There are nine courses on the island, six on the South where you would be very unlucky to get cancelled due to bad weather and three on the north, weather can be a little more unpredictable but you still get the sun all year round, just a little damper.

The oldest course on the island is ‘Real Club de Golf de Tenerife’, which was founded in 1932, it is on the north of the island just beyond the north airport, unfortunately the link above is only in Spanish, which I find odd because the Club House and Course has a very English feel to it and a lot of expats and holidaymakers alike play there, I know  that there are English speaking staff working there, so you will have no problems booking etc.

All the courses are different, so it’s best to go to the individual Web Pages for more information and decide which ones you would like to play.
