The excitement for the best golf on the old continent is evident in the three rounds of the Canarian Swing, a professional golf tournament played at Costa Adeje Golf Course in the wonderful Spanish island of Tenerife. The tournament is intended to be a one-off event and will be played the week after the Tenerife Open also at Costa Adeje Golf Course, creating a three-week swing of events in the Canary Islands.

It was not a championship with an excessive presence of the best players. Were only three on the first page of the standings: Garrick Higgo (65), Antoine Rozner (68) and John Catlin (82).

The South African Garrick Higgo will be just one of the names to follow, as the United States is already looking at its enormous progression since winning the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open at the Meloneras Golf Course.

The follow competitions will be at Real Club Valderrama Golf Course, the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters and the Spanish Open at Villa de Madrid Golf Course.

With these confirmations, Spain has once again become one of the great organizers of the European Tour tournaments.

For Tee Times Golf Agency these tournaments are of great importance and visibility for both Spain and the Resorts and Golf Courses involved, such as Costa Adeje Golf Course a wonderful Golf Resort which boasts an 18 hole golf course of par 72 and a 9 hole golf course of par 33.
For very pleasant rounds at Costa Adeje Golf Course we suggest the Week Experience golf package for 5 rounds, as well as the next-door golf courses; Las Américas Golf Course (18 holes, par 72), Abama Golf Course (18 holes, par 72) and Amarilla Golf & Country Club (27 holes, par 71) where 18 or more rounds with or without buggy can be appreciated at very special rates.
For an even more complete and pleasant stay, do not miss the deluxe and charming hotels; Vincci La Plantacion del Sur *****, Iberostar Grand Hotel El Mirador ***** and H10 Atlantic Sunset ***** where several night packages will be prepared according to your dreams.

European Golf Tour

The European Golf Tour is proud to announce their 2021 calendar, travelling across continents and around the world with a minimum of forty-two tournaments in twenty-four countries. From January to November, the calendar also features eighteen returning tournaments that were postponed or cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 calendar features four tournaments in Spain, four events in which they will host the best professional golf players on the continent. An Estrella Damm NA Andalucía Masters that changes its date, a Spanish Open that is back on the calendar and two new tournaments in the Canary Islands will be the protagonists of four weeks of high-level of golf between April and October. In both months the tournaments will be played in consecutive weeks as the European Golf Tour is committed to reducing travel whenever possible.

Tenerife Open | April 15 – 18 | Golf Costa Adeje | Tenerife

Gran Canaria Open | April 22 – 25 | Golf course to be determined | Gran Canaria

Spain Open | 07 – 10 October | Villa de Madrid Country Club | Madrid

Estrella Damm N.A. Andalusia Masters | October 14 – 17 | Real Club Valderrama | Cadiz

Real Club Valderrama Golf course, after several months of conversations with the European Golf Tour, decided to host the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters in mid-October. At this time the golf course is always in excellent condition and once the American circuit is concluded ensures a great selection of players.

They were looking forward to the Spanish Open return to the calendar after the wise decision to suspend it in 2020 and fortunately it is already a reality. Both the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, Madrid Trophy Promotion and the Villa de Madrid Country Club are committed and excited about this new edition of the tournament. They have been preparing the CCVM Black course for several years with the Spanish Open as the goal and in this year’s edition, it will be presented in better agronomic conditions than in previous years.

Last summer an opportunity arose to consider holding circuit tournaments on the islands as the European Golf Tour was looking for good level venues in tourist destinations. For Gran Canaria and being part of the Tour, they could not miss the opportunity to propose Gran Canaria and Tenerife since they have all the characteristics to host top-of-the-line tournaments. Turespaña Masters was held in the nineties at Maspalomas Golf course.

Costa Adeje Golf course received this news with great enthusiasm, it is a great way to end the year after a complex one due to the pandemic.

Tee Times Golf Agency is happy to promote the excellent golf courses and hotels, suggesting the best in each area where the tournaments will take place, as well as the best golf holidays throughout the year.


Gran Canary golf tour

Gran Canary

My fam trip to Gran Canary start on the 23 september flying from Seville to las Palmas, picking up a rent a car, avoiding all selling tecnics by the rent a car reception and drive to El Salobre Serenity the oficial Hotel for the week.

Tuesday morning we played at Lopesan Meloneras golf course. I can say it is a beautifull golf course, parkland course but with a few holes near the sea as expected where players can admire some beautiful cliffs and taste the force of the wind. Meloneras golf course was in immaculate conditions, tees, fairways and greens. The driving range at Meloneras golf course is organised to accommodate large groups if necessary.

Afterwards we had a beautifull lunch in La Toscana Restaurant at Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort & Spa, visited some of Hotel facilities, including the immense infinity pool, which creates the spectacular effect of sea integration.

The afternoon ended with a Trip to the Nature in Gran Canary and dinner in Montaña de las Tierras where we also visited some houses and Restaurant build in the cellars of the mountain itself.

Wednesday started with oficial meetings with representatives of various Hotels and Golf courses of the Island followed by 9 holes at Salobre Old course tipycal of volcanic mountain course , where the designer had to create areas for the tees, fairways and greens and place it on top of the mountain rock. The effect is nice and they didn´t forget to beautify all the surrounding áreas. The Salobre Old course, is not particularly long, but the fact that the golf course is situated on very rugged terrain shortens most of the Tee shots. Salobre Old course was a pleasant and recommended experience.

In late afternoon we travel to Maspalomas for another golf experience in Gran Canary.

In contrast to Salobre, Meloneras is a flat golf course with large greens but small undulations.

The rought with bermuda adds difficulty to the game. A very pleasant experience on a friendly Golf course followed by a lively barbecue on the terrace of the restaurant.

On Thursday we aimed to Anfi Tauro golf course for a 18 hole experience on what is probably the best golf course in the Gran Canary island.

At the Dunes

Expectations were high and were met. The golf course is a treat to the eye and features well-designed challenging holes with strategically placed obstacles. Anfi Tauro golf course begins with some holes in a flatter area, but then develops into a volcanic mountain where it is much more difficult to correctly assess distances.

Apart from differences in high, the wind is also a major factor to consider when choosing the right club. Nothing wrong to choose an extra club to play for a elevated green or when the wind blows against. Prepare yourself for a great test of golf in a well-kept flowery environment.

After the game a well deserved lunch at Maroa Club del Mar for a delicious paella with the sea at our feet.

After a good siesta we visited Seaside Palm beach Hotel where again a delicious dinner was served, in the gardens of the Hotel where different chefs serve delicacies from sushi to italian, chinese and traditional spanish cuisine, with a suport from a rich lively buffet.

On Friday we departer to the north of the Island and visited Las Palmas old town center. We learned a little bit of the history of the city and, visited the house Colombo stayed before he leave to “discover” America. Curious to know that he would rather use a small church to pray instead of the big cathedral right next door.

Lunch was served at La Marinera a busy restaurant on the sea front where we tasted local fresh fish served efficiently by experienced staff team.

Departure for the Oldest golf course in all Spain, the Real Club de Golf Las Palmas, a true parkland golf course, par 68, full of history, as evidenced by the photos and signatures with dedications of famous players who played there. Rafa Cabrera Bello seems to be an honorary member and regular visitor to the club.

Farewell dinner was at Bodega San Juan, a farm where an elderly family produces exceptional quality wine, and where we were indulged with a magnificent dinner in the gardens of the house, accompanied by live music.

Return to Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity for the last night cup together.

Saturday morning after breakfast the last 18 holes at Salobre New course. Similar landscape as the Old Course, but in my opinion not as so good, technically. The more hilly and rugged terrain didn´t allow the designer to found the right options to offer more pleasant holes.

Nevertheless the golf course offers an interesting experience and some fun to all level of players.

I can´t thank enough to all involved for a fantastic experience at Gran Canary.

Love to all
