Amarilla Bay Golf Course, Tenerife

Amarilla Bay Golf Course, Tenerife

This course will tease you, test you and delight you and it couldn’t enjoy a better location. For the dedicated golfer you will even find a large portfolio of privately owned holiday villas in Amarilla Golf from which to base your Tenerife golfing holiday.

Amarilla Golf and Country Club is a dedicated golf resort, it was built with the golfer in mind and delivers the rare combination of modern luxury and the raw charms of nature. Just to the west of the main airport, Reina Sofia, and 15 minutes from the southern tourism hotspots of Los Cristianos and Las Americas, it feels like it is set in its own relaxed world.

When Donald Steel set about designing the 6,077 metre course in 1989 he had plenty of help from the rugged land and the views out to the Atlantic. Deciding to work with the land rather than against it he came up with some interesting challenges for the golfer.

The first five holes hug the coast then move inland with the mountain ranges providing a stunning backdrop, and as you reach the end of your meander, the final three holes will keep you alert as you face the large dark sand bunkers.

Hole five deserves special mention, the sea cuts into the cliff leaving you with a small ravine to drive over before you reach the green.

In 1990 Amarilla hosted the Tenerife Open, part of the European PGA Tour and the players could hardly fail to be impressed at the array of wild animals and plant life that inhabit the course. A coastal path that skirts by the course is popular with walkers and bird watchers, another example of the way that Amarilla blends into the environment.
