Dream greens

A perennial favorite among Scandinavians all year round, the Canary Islands offer some of the best winter golf conditions of all, not least on Fuerteventura.

Jandia golf is considered to be the most exciting course on the island.

Jandia Golf

Jandia Golf is situated on Fuerteventura’s southernmost tip, where the beaches are the whitest and widest. Completely renovated in 2014, it is the most exciting golf course on the island, offering a good variety of long and short holes, and many opportunities to play several with different approaches. As the course is relatively short and laid out on slightly hilly terrain, it is suitable for all types of players. Precision and good game management are usually more important than distance off the tee.

Golf Club de Salinas de Antigua

Caleta del Fuste on the east coast of Fuerteventura, has two magnificent courses overlooking the sea. Salinas de Antigua is open and modern with hillocks and waste areas framing several of the holes. Technical challenges and rolling fairways serve for a fun round of golf – there’s even a real bunker from World War II on the third hole. The views are notable as well, with the black volcanic sand-filled waste areas, green fairways, terracotta-­colored villas and the deep blue sea creating a magnificently colorful backdrop.

Fuerteventura Golf Club

Fuerteventura Golf Club is located next door to Salinas de Antigua. Even though the two courses are built on the same grounds, they are completely different in character. Fuerteventura Golf is a classic British-style golf course with small greens, palm tree-lined fairways and great views of the ocean. It also features a stream meandering through the course, three lakes and intricate fairway bunkers integrated in the design, that add extra excitement to your round. Opened in 2002, it’s the oldest course on the island. The beautiful hotel building, designed as a traditional Spanish hacienda, houses the clubhouse and an excellent restaurant.

While in Fuerteventura

Take a road trip to Betancuria, the most picturesque village on the island. Founded in 1404 by the French nobleman Jean de Bethencourt, this was once one of the most important colonial outposts in the history of the Canary Islands. With its traditional whitewashed houses, cacti, wind harps and beautiful church, coming here is like traveling back in time.
