A fun island tour awaits participants on this Golf & Cruise voyage. Games will mainly be played on volcanic islands in the Atlantic that lie off the coast of the European and African mainlands. Perhaps this is why the courses have one thing in common – the fairways are all rather narrow. They favour players who can maintain full control over the direction of the ball.
Wed 06.04.2022 Santa Cruz, Tenerife – Buenavista Golf Club
Severiano Ballesteros has made an impression with his architectural hallmarks in the south-west of the island. Interested golfers will find an equal balance of six par-3, six par-4 and six par-5 holes on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, so there is something here for every taste. The volcanic terrain on the course has influenced the architect in many places and the natural features have been integrated into his layout. Severiano’s pet project ensures every level of player has a chance here.
Fri 08.04.2022 San Sebastian de la Gomera (La Gomera), Spain – Tecina Golf
Above Playa de Santiago, it’s hard to choose between the views and the game when you visit this golf course for a round on its terraced design. View after breathtaking view of the blue Atlantic provide such an amazing distraction that the 18 holes with their well-tended greens and mainly straight fairways will almost fade into the background. There are Canary Island palms all around the course, as well as ancient agaves and prickly pears.
Sun 10.04.2022 Funchal – Palheiro Golf club
The carefully designed holes of the championship course lie 500 m (1,640 ft) above sea level between the mountains of Madeira and the Atlantic Ocean. With some significant changes in altitude, its layout requires fitness and careful course management. The par-72 course also offers some powerful distractions with plenty of spectacular views.
Tue 12.04.2022 Ponta Delgada (Azores), Portugal – Batalha Golf Club
The 27 holes of this course are divided into A, B and C loops and offer very different fairways that become rather narrow in places. The par-3 hole B6 and its 195 m (640 ft) length is worthy of particular mention. The tee box is one of the highest points on the course and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding Atlantic. There is such a great potential for distraction here that you should try and take a little extra time to focus before taking your shot.
