Why are more and more golfers visiting Lanzarote to practice their favourite sport?
One of the main virtues of Lanzarote as a sporting destination is the possibility of practicing sport at any time of the year, and this has become a very important attraction for golfers from countries with a more unstable climate. Few places in the world allow you to enjoy an average annual temperature of 22º, two excellent golf courses with 18 holes each and a unique setting, formed by the exquisite combination of the volcanic landscape and the sea.
During the period between the months of October and April, many players from countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Scandinavian countries, Holland, France and Ireland visit the island seeking the eternal spring that Lanzarote enjoys. Many are professional players who organize week-long trips for groups to destinations with golf courses, where besides training outdoors, improving their technique and playing private tournaments, they are keen to explore the attractions and gastronomy of the place they visit.
One of the reasons why they choose Lanzarote is because of the wide availability of tee times offered by the island’s golf courses. The professionals working with these groups place a lot of value on the possibility of enjoying facilities in excellent conditions, as well as the possibility of easily reserving the practice grounds before going out to play.
It should be noted that the island has a wide range of hotel accommodation specialized in the golf sector, offering visitors a variety of 4*, 5* hotels and luxury villas located in the main tourist areas of the island, and very close to the two golf courses. This accommodation offers all the comforts that golf tourists need during their stay on the island, such as a varied gastronomic offer, sports facilities, spas and booking and paying green fees through their excellent customer service points.
Both Costa Teguise Golf, with 40 years of experience, and Lanzarote Golf with 10 years of experience, stand out for having staff teams with extensive experience in the sector, and teachers who have taught thousands of golfers who return year after year to play on their courses. They also have Pro Shops, which provide personalized advice and offer the possibility of renting clubs, buggies and manual or electric trolleys for visitors who prefer to travel light.
Golf is a fantastic sport to play in company, so the courses are always looking for ways that players who have no companions can go out on the fairways with other players living on the island, who can guide them in their shots.
Living the golf experience in Lanzarote is not only reserved for players who plan their sporting holidays on the island, since both Lanzarote Golf and Costa Teguise Golf offer anyone who is interested in practicing this sport the opportunity to attend classes and courses to improve their golf during their stay on the island.
These courses can provide an introduction to the sport, or you can work on improving skills or obtaining your handicap during your holidays. The golf courses also offer specific and personalised courses so that those who so wish can obtain their federation licence during the holidays or have a certificate issued which enables golfers to use the facilities for the practice of golf at golf courses in their own countries, which tend to have greater entry restrictions.
Lanzarote has an extensive calendar of amateur tournaments during the summer, which encourage the participation of resident and foreign players, as well as hosting the Grand Final of the Premium 2019 Gambito Golf Circuit (November) and the Grand Teguise Playa – Final Lanzarote Golf Tour AESGOLF (December), events included in the European Sports Destination sports calendar.
