If golf is your game, then Gran Canaria is the place to be, there are 8 courses to choose from, all perfect for professionals and keen amateurs alike. The oldest golf club in Spain, Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas, formed in 1891, is at the cutting edge of the modern game, and has just staged the Copa de la Reina womens tournament.

An international line up battled it out, leaving French professionals Lucie Andre and Rosanna Crepiat to contest the grand final. Lucie Andre emerged as the overall winner, but once again Gran Canaria was able to prove its worth as a major golf venue.

If you decide to rent or buy property in the south of Gran Canaria, you will be glad to know that there are 4 courses to choose from, all in easy reach of the main tourist zones. Anfi Tauro Golf Mogan is close to Playa Mogan and Puerto de Mogan, Salobre Golf and Resort is set in San Bartolome de Tirajana, the biggest of all the course with 27 holes soon to become two 18 hole courses. Maspalomas is a hot bed for the sport with Meloneras Golf and Maspalomas Golf, both a short chip from the rolling sand dunes and wide beaches that make the area so popular.

Cardenas Real Estate have watched the golf course and other facilities grow in the south and are expertly placed to advise you where to enjoy the best mix of sun and sport.
