Golfers are being invited to ‘Golf Cool’ this summer, playing in the perfect climate on the holiday island of Tenerife.
With consistent warm winters and nine varied courses to choose from, Tenerife is already well-recognised as a destination that provides exceptional conditions for golf holidays between the months of November and March.
However, the Tenerife Tourism Corporation is adamant that the cool way to travel and play golf this summer is to head to Tenerife and to take advantage of a range of conditions that other southern European destinations struggle to provide.
The ‘Golf Cool’ invitation is based around four key factors; better value green fees, ideal golfing temperatures, quieter golf courses and longer days, which facilitate plenty of time to hit the pool or beach.
In value terms, green fees between April and October are approximately 25 per cent cheaper than in the winter months; and, with hotel rates also significantly reduced in many periods, it all combines to provide a great value golf holiday.
While other popular Mediterranean golfing spots will be hosting a sweaty sea of golfers in stifling conditions this summer, Tenerife is able to provide the perfect antidote as cooling trade winds keep average temperatures across the summer period to about 25°C, with virtually no rain and an average of more than nine hours of sunshine per day – an ideal combination for any golf break.
In addition, the golf courses on Tenerife are generally much quieter in the summer months, giving visitors the opportunity to schedule tee-times to their own personal requirements and providing an uncrowded millionaire’s golfing feel on-course.
Tenerife is blessed with more than 70km of beaches and a wide range of cultural highlights and activities both on and off the water. With longer daylight hours, golfers visiting in summer will have ample opportunity to indulge their favourite pastime and also immerse themselves in the spirit of Tenerife, whether sightseeing or sipping a cocktail from their sun-lounger.
Tenerife features nine different and varied layouts: Buenavista in the west; Real Club de Golf de Tenerife in the north; and Golf Costa Adeje, Abama, Las Americas, Golf del Sur, Amarilla, and Los Palos in the south. Tecina Golf is a 40-minute ferry ride from the mainland on the beautiful island of La Gomera.
