Golf on Fuerteventura

A Guide to Fuerteventura's Golf Courses.

Fuerteventura Golf Course

Golf is a very popular sport on Fuerteventura. The first golf course on the Island was created in Caleta de Fuste (Costa Caleta). This is a really excellent course, designed by Juan Catarineu, and which hosted the Spanish Open in 2004, which was quite an achievement for a course which only opened in Spring 2002.

Despite Fuerteventura's almost constant sunshine and little rain, the golf course has beautiful greens. The winds provide a challenge for all golfers. there are three lakes and other natural hazards.

The golf course also boasts a 5 star clubhouse, the Elba Palace Golf Resort Hotel, which homes the pro shop and the resident PGA professional. It has a driving range, chipping area, practice bunker and putting green. Practice facilities include a 50 bay driving range, club and buggy hire, a large putting green and a second green for chipping and bunker shots.

This course is designed around luxurious villa complexes many of these villas being available for rental.

Las Salinas Golf Course.

The second course to open was built alongside the first one in Caleta. This is very well set up as a course that is ideal for the holidaymaker type golfer, as well as experienced golfer, it being slightly less challenging than Fuerteventura Golf Course. This course is currently maintained in very good condition.

It is a par 70 course designed for Manolo Piñeiro, twice world champion golfer. The course´s amenities amenities include a club house, pro shop, buggy, trolley and club hire, a cafeteria, restaurant and changing rooms with showers and lockers.

Las Playitas Golf Course.

In 2010 the Golf course of Las Playitas opened the further nine holes required to make it a full golf course. There is a driving range, for around 30 golfers. It is a very well planned and challenging course.The pro here is British PGA professional Murdo McCorquodale, who speaks English, Spanish and German. The Golf Course at Las Playitas Golf course is just a few kilometres away fromGran Tarajal.

Corralejo Golf course.

There is a 9 hole course on the Parque Natural development in the south of Corralejo, and it´s called the Mirador de Lobos Golf. It´s a 673m course, with a practise net area and putting/chipping greens.

All in all Fuerteventura is developing into an ideal destination for those who like a little golf on holiday and for those that want an entire holiday designed around that theme.

Jandia Golf Course (Closed at the moment - Oct 2011).

The course in Jandia, on the right as you enter Morro Jable, though open still has a few teething problems. The course is quite hilly and would be more suitable if the course had buggiess, but at the moment there aren't any. The paths between tees aren't clearly defined and it can be difficult to find the next tee. It is well laid out and if the teething problems can be sorted out this promises to be a good course.

Thanks to Mr and Mrs Jones from arround Bicester for providing us with some information for this page. We met them at the Jandia Golf course and we were pleased that they were Sunnyfuerteventura.com fans.
