On the southern coast of Tenerife the Amarilla Golf Club is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, that without a doubt, inspired golf architect Donald Steel to create an exceptional 18 hole golf course overlooking the sea where you are sometimes obliged to drive the ball over the waves onto the next green.
Inaugurated in 1989, it has hosted the Tenerife Open on the European PGA Tour. From the first tee, the player discovers the spectacular ocean views. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes are surrounded by a broad variety of typical Canarian flora, the enormous Cannas Indicas, the beautiful Washington Palms and the very exclusive Canarian Pines. The most impressive part of the round reaches its peak at the 5th hole: This is truly a gem for golf lovers, where the sea becomes a fairway, making it necessary to cross in order to reach the green.
Amarilla golf course provides a defying challenge for the professional golfer while, at the same time, offers an attractive and enjoyable game for those of a more modest ability.
