Amarilla Golf in Tenerife is one of life's hidden gems, probably the best Tenerife golf course, it hosted a round of the PGA European tour in 1990; designed by Donald Steel in the late nineteen eighties it features an imaginatively designed golf course sandwiched between the bright blue Atlantic Ocean and Spain's highest mountain, the majestic El Teide. Playing golf in Tenerife in mid winter wearing just shorts and polo shirt with the sun reflecting off the water and with the often snow capped peak of El Teide in the opposite direction can compensate for almost any amount of duffed shots.
Amarilla Golf is set among residential and holiday accommodation with about half the fairways having villas or apartments running along part of their length. The hole that grips everyone is the short par three fifth; 115 metres off the yellow tees there is no fairway, just the sea to cross and then to land on a small green, it can play anything from a wedge to a five iron depending on wind conditions. This Tenerife golf hole must rank as one of the most spectacular par threes in the world.
Amarilla golf now has a further attraction, the new 344 berth San Miguel marina is situated just off the twelfth tee and the sight of these sleek yachts enjoying the sunshine and warm weather sailing in Tenerife just adds to the pleasure of playing golf in Tenerife.
