Lanzarote Golf is a great course located outside Tias in created by the well-known North American Ron Kirby, chief project designer of Jack Nicklaus. It is an 18-hole, par 72 course with four par 3’s, four par 5’s and ten par 4’s, with a total of 6.133 m in length and its located just 5 minutes drive from Puerto Del Carmen and 25 minutes from Playa Blanca.
Green Fees are €85, a golf buggy is an additional €35. There is a decent golf shop and club hire is available.
The course itself is challenging enough and might be a little tough for the novice golfer, in general the greens are in good shape. For those who can keep it largely on the fairway its a wonderful course with spectacular views over the ocean. Experienced golfers will be challenged by the approach to to the greens. Our advice is to bring a few spare golf balls as if you happen to shank one they can be hard to find. If you are playing with expensive clubs they can be easily damaged off the fairways so considering hiring a set at the club that you won’t need to worry about.
Costa Teguise Golf is Located in the foothills of an ancient volcano and with breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean, is located a 30-minute drive from the centre of Playa Blanca just outside of Costa Teguise and offers a spectacular golfing setting – with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, but also the volcanic mountainous landscape that makes the island of Lanzarote so unique.
The club hosts many tournaments throughout the year round such as the Lanzarote Golf Tour and the National Championship of Gambito Premium, which are big golf events in Mainland Spain.
The course itself has over 3.500 palms which can very easily disappear your golf ball. The course was designed in 1978 by the famous architect John Harris.
The course itself if challenging and can be windy I would rate it is as moderately difficult and depending on the time of year it could benefit for more intensive maintenance. That said its a fine course. First time golfers in Lanzarote will find the bunkers interesting on the island as they use Pecan which is a very small volcanic stone instead of sand but dont worry it wont damage your clubs.
I would definitely recommend suncream and water if your out during the middle of the day and you will find toilets on the course midway.
The clubhouse has all you will need with club hire and golf shop.

Juniors are half price
There are special offers for two people plus a buggy for €180
