Golf del Sur, Tenerife


Ever since its 1987 inaugural event, a competition for professionals, the 27 greens and fairways of Golf del Sur on Tenerife have provided the backdrop for various top international tournaments. In 1989 they bore witness to José Maria Olazábal’s victory in the Open de Tenerife, a feat he repeated in 1992. The following year they watched as David Gilford won the event, as did Mark James in ‘94. In 1995, Golf del Sur (Tenerife) hosted the Shell Wonderful World of Golf tournament and its head-to-head battle between Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson.

Golf del Suron Tenerife has also been the setting for two golf driving distance records, both of which were set by Britains Karl Woodward. First he set a new record of 398 yards and then, a few months later, he managed to break the legendary 400-yard barrier with a huge stroke which sent the ball flying 408 yards.

Golf Courses on Tenerife

This Tenerife golf course, designed by Pepe Gancedo, is a thoroughly enjoyable layout in which one’s attention is immediately caught by the black volcanic sand in the bunkers. The wide fairways are lined with such a wide variety of indigenous plants that, with its palm trees and giant cactus plants, this 800 square-metre course beside the Atlantic Ocean is like a veritable oasis. Particularly difficult is the 3rd hole of the north course. To the right of the wide fairway is a water hazard, behind which lies an impressive ravine with an ochre-coloured rockface, while to the left is a gaping bunker of black sand.Reduced Golf Green Fees on Tenerife Another notable hole is the 2nd of the southern course, a par 3 of 193 metres whose green is surrounded by another immense bunker of black sand. The club offers a golf school as well as practice facilities, a tennis court, lawn bowls green, bar-restaurant and pro shop. Golf del Sur offers special rates to guest using the private owner's golf apartments on Tenerife's Ocean Golf and Country Club.

Golf Apartment Rentals

For the serious golfer, rental of a private apartment on the golf course itself is the ideal approach. A party of four can rent a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment equipped to the highest standards for as little as £100 per person per week. Apart from the unashamed luxury of our Ocean Golf and Country Club apartment, time is not wasted driving to and from the golf course and users benefit from dramatically reduced green fees.
