Lanzarote Golf is an unusual and attractive golf course with 18 strong holes, created by the well-known North American designer Ron Kirby.
The 6,750-yard, par-72 course is situated in the tourist centre of Puerto del Carmen, just five minutes from the best hotels and beaches of the island, and 10 minutes from the airport.
Relatively little land was moved in the course of the construction, and it shows. The holes have a beautifully natural feel, and while the course is relatively tree-less, it has an integrity to its design that results in you having to think your way around this course rather than overpower it.
It is an undulating layout, with hazards being mostly picon (gravel) and walls. There are lots of cacti and the bunkers are excellent and it's certainly a tough test on a windy day. Before going out to enjoy a round, you might borrow a club from the clubhouse to play from the picon otherwise you could ruin your clubs. Alternatively, arrange with your playing partners for free drops!
Lanzarote Golf continues to evolve and now has all necessary services - clubhouse with changing rooms, reception, shop, club room, bathrooms and cafeteria. The club also offers driving range, short game area, putting green, club rental, buggies and trolleys for hire. And from the spacious terraces of the clubhouse you can enjoy watching the golfers at the 1st and 10th tees and the 9th and 18th greens.
