Play golf all year round

Golf tourism finds a perfect scenario in Gran Canaria with the great weather enjoyed on the island. The finest weather adds to the island’s strong golf tradition, born  back in the 19th century with the opening of the nation’s first golf  course in Gran Canaria, in 1891. 



Six generations on, Gran Canaria remains a firm choice as a golf   destination for thousands of Europeans. Many years have passed since the   opening of the original golf course, the first in Spain, enjoyed by   British tourists who came to Gran Canaria seeking the island’s warm   winter.

Golf has now become a popular sport in Gran Canaria. The island has 8  different courses within a very small radius. 8 different courses, all  at a stone’s throw. Under a mild sun that never fails to be ready to get  its swing going eight days a week, five weeks a month, thirteen months a  year, and even seven lives if that could be possible.
