Gran Canaria Golf launches week-long summer festival

Maspalomas

Considering a golf holiday next year? Well, Gran Canaria Golf has launched a summer festival that will be hosted at four different courses on the island from June 17-24.

The festival will be an annual summer event where golfers from all over the world can enjoy tournaments and other social, cultural, cooking and discovery activities.

There will be no less than four tournaments held at four different clubs over the six-day period in the sun-kissed destination.

Golfers will compete for the prizes at four of the island’s best courses: Meloneras Golf, Salobre Golf, Anfi Tauro Golf and Maspalomas Golf, while the Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas will become an option for those wishing to play an extra day during the event.

The Lopesan Meloneras Golf Resort is situated between the yacht bay and dunes of Meloneras and is a short drive from Maspalomas, too.

The par-71 course offers magnificent vistas with an oasis of palm trees and water features. The front nine also boasts a fantastic view of the mountains as a backdrop.

At the Salobre Golf resort, the par-3s offer some fun challenges as to how good your short game is. Additionally, with wide fairways and small greens, the only 36-hole course in Gran Canaria is bound to be a difficult one.

The Anfi Tauro Golf resort is the youngest of the lot, having opened its doors in 2007.

Rocky valleys, palm trees, cacti and waterfalls surround the course – it has it all as one of the standouts of the island.

The organisers are hoping that the event will be the festival that the world’s top players will want to play in a few years.

The luxury five-star Sheraton Salobre Golf & Spa resort will be the official accommodation for the event, meaning the participants and visitors will certainly enjoy their short stay in the Canaries.
