• Maspalomas Golf Club
Scott Mackenzie Ross (1968) 18 holes - 6,996 yds - par 73
Although a tournament course, it has hosted twice the Canarias Spanish Open, and very long, it plays over 7,000 yards from the championship tees with a par 73, the course is still accessible and enjoyable for the average player. it is also nearly totally flat and cooled by the Trade Winds, making the use of a buggy quite unnecessary. The large fairways invite to open the shoulders, although players will have to take care not to go stray into the dunes and the rough bordering the fairways. The greens are well guarded by large sand bunkers filled with yellow sand, calling for careful approach shots. This fully mature course offers an exiting challenge in no less exiting surroundings and conditions at any season.

Ron Kirby ( 2006) - 18 holes - 6,454 yds - par 72

Found along the coastline and to the west of the Maspalomas lighthouse, it remains perfectly protected from the characteristic winds commonly found in the area. Besides, its proximity to the sea, it has various holes next to the coast, quite exceptional for the golf courses on the island and, therefore, making it a great attraction to golf fans.

founded 1891 - Scott Mackenzie Ross (1957) 18 holes - 6,468 yds - par 72
Founded in 1891 by British expatriates trading in the Canary Islands, Las Palmas Royal Golf Club is the oldest club in Spain. The course was originally located at the outskirts of the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, but when the city expanded in the 1950's, the club had to move to its present location in the mountains, fifteen kilometres south of the city. The new layout was designed in 1956 by reputed British archited Scott Mackenzie Ross over the scenic landscape of the Llanos de Bandama. Four hundred metres above sea level, the course enjoys a spectacular location on the border of the old volcano crater of Bandama, surrounded by lush sub-tropical vegetation and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. The course is very British in style, with narrow fairways, thick rough and strategically placed bunkers protecting the greens, requiring a lot of concentration, ball placement and strategy.
