This golf course lies at the foot of an old volcano and has breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. This 18-hole course, which was designed by British landscape architect John Harris, was built in 1978. This is a fantastic course, not only because of its design but also thanks to the excellent condition in which it is kept all year round.
The course runs along the side of an old volcano, set within an inspirational landscape of volcanic lava, cacti and palm trees. This is nature at its best, where man cares for his natural habitat just as César Manrique taught the people of Lanzarote.
The course is designed to be both smooth and varied. Its numerous doglegs stimulate players and require them to bring all their clubs into play. It even represents a challenge for professional players, whilst offering an attractive and enjoyable game for those of more modest skills. The fairways are surrounded by over 3,000 palm trees and there are breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition to its privileged location, it benefits from a warm and pleasant climate all year round, which is tempered by a sea breeze from the island’s almost constant trade winds.
We played this course three days. It has nice natural settings. Because of the hard wind and the rocky terrain of gravel and lava stone it is important but difficult to keep your ball on the fairway. You can get a free club to save your own in case you have to play your ball from the rock or gravel. The fairways were in beautiful condition and the greens were okay. It would help if the bunkers would contain sand in stead of gravel. I would say the course is challenging 9zand very much different then the ones at home but is that not what holiday is all about? The twilight greenfee is fair considering that it starts already at 12!
