Golf del Sur features black volcanic bunkers

Golf del Sur Golf Club

San Miguel de Abona, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

Golf del Sur opened in 1987 and has been host to a number of European PGA Tour events. Originally designed by Pepe Gancedo and redesigned (Links Course) in 2005 by Manuel Piñero, Golf del Sur is the only golf course in the Canary Islands with 3 championship combinations. The course is thoroughly enjoyable with black volcanic sand in the bunkers, large greens and very wide fairways. Particularly difficult is the 3rd hole on the North course. To right of the wide fairway is a water hazard, behind which lies an impressive ravine with an ochre-coloured rockface, while to the left is a gaping bunker of black sand. Another notable hole is the 2nd of the South course, a par 3 of 193 meters whose green is surrounded by another immense bunker of black sand.

Length of 2.911 meters has 9 holes, 2 par 3s, 5 par 4s and 2 par 5s. (par 36)

Length of 2.986 meters has 9 holes, 2 par 5s, 5 par 4s and 2 par 3s. (par 36)

Length of 2.853 meters has 9 holes, 2 par 3s, 5 par 4s and 2 par 5s. (par 36)
