Golf Costa Adeje
Costa Adeje is possibly Tenerife’s most spectacular course, designed by the renowned Spanish golf architect Pepe Gancedo who successfully reached his aims of making full use of the natural terrain and bizarrely, a number of old agricultural stone walls, to create this absolute gem. With stunning coastal views offered throughout, this is a must-play course on your next golf escape to the Canary Islands.
The course features several blind doglegs and large greens, which are heavily guarded by water and sand, constantly threatening to swallow up your ball and disadvantage your score. The spacious fairways on this course should not lead you into a false sense of security; a wayward shot will be swiftly punished by the dense greenery and rocks lining the fairways. You can easily be distracted from the task at hand by the views of the neighbouring island of La Gomera, the Atlantic, Playa de las Americas and the Adeje mountains. The course is invariably in superb condition throughout the year, and due to Tenerife’s fantastic climate and warm year round temperature, players will never find themselves without an opportunity to play this fabulous course

To create a unique yet stunning landscape, Pepe Gancedo used black volcanic sand in all waste areas and bunkers, and further incorporated the landscape’s natural features in this course. It comes as no surprise that Gancedo is often referred to as the ‘’Picasso of Golf’’as he is somewhat an artist for his authentic golf designs. This course was designed to be routed into two patterns; the front nine holes feature fairways that slope uphill and downhill to the natural contours of the landscape, whereas the back nine are predominantly lined up against the surrounding hillside.
A particularly notable hole on this course includes the par 3, 187-yard long 7th hole, and has been assigned a stroke index 1 on the scorecard. On this hole players are required to carry their ball across a barranca to the green; on this hole if you do not strike well you can kiss goodbye to your chances of a birdie. A theme constant throughout the Costa Adeje course is that you either score all or nothing, and you cannot allow the stunning panoramic landscape distract you. Despite boasting a coastal location, the Adeje region has very few windy days, therefore wayward shots will be somewhat forgiven on the spacious greens. Moreover, amateur players can further be accommodated for here with no water hazards threatening to swallow their ball.
