It’s absolutely true. Every European golfer has a large number of places where to travel to play the sport. For sure! And, of course, there is a high number of islands where they can play golf. At any travel agency, they will surely accommodate you so that you can travel without parting from your bag of clubs.
But not all golf destinations are the same. Certainly not!
For... how many of those destinations are European islands? And how many of them have been, as is the case of Gran Canaria, a traditional tourist destination now for several generations of Europeans? How many offer more than 120 beaches? Do they have as many hotels as in Gran Canaria?
It is also unlikely to find many islands with 8 golf courses within a small radius. Here in Gran Canaria, you may try 8 wholly different courses. All close to each other, but all different from each other. You may play next to the dunes, in the heart of the island’s tourist district. Or you can watch how your partner hits the ball straight into the sea while you hole out from a bunker.
Here you can enjoy your sport next to a volcano crater or from a spot you would expect to find in a moon desert. And in short sleeves. No need to bring a coat.
Above all, Gran Canaria offers you a great golf destination that’s open all year long. Yes, twelve months a year. Enjoy the island’s mild weather any time of the year. A weather that seems made to measure to do away with every single cobweb in your golf club bag. An island that seems custom-made for golf enthusiasts.
