Find the best golf courses in Lanzarote
If you are looking for amazing golf courses to enjoy during your holiday, Lanzarote is the ideal place. This volcanic island in the Atlantic has the perfect climate for a day of golf.
There are two golf courses that offer visitors unique experiences. Both golf sites are situated among ancient volcanoes and offer breathtaking views. Furthermore, the rates are affordable and there are plenty of additional activities to enjoy, such as beaches, restaurants and shops.
Costa Teguise Golf
The Costa Teguise Golf Course is located at the foot of an ancient volcano and has excellent views of the Atlantic Ocean. It was created in 1978 by the British designer John Harris and consists of 18 holes. The course is impressive not only because of its innovative design, but also because of the favourable climatic conditions with a year-round temperature of 22º.
The Costa Teguise Golf Course is a dazzling place, where nature blends with the rocky landscape, cactus, and fairways surrounded by more than 3000 palm trees. The native vegetation located among the volcanic stones makes it stand out as an oasis in Lanzarote’s typical landscape.
The variety provided by the course will require players to use a mixture of different golf clubs. This provides a challenge for professionals but is also an enjoyable experience for less experienced players.

- Restaurant and bar
- Rental of buggies, hand trolleys, sticks, lockers, etc.
- Changing rooms
- Golf School
- Pro Shop
- Practice areas: Driving Range, Putting Green, Chipping Green, Driving Range, Practice Hole
Lanzarote Golf Resort
Lanzarote Golf Resort is a golf course which exercises a special attraction, largely due to its location on the Canary Island of Lanzarote.
This sports area designed for playing golf follows the link design, with wide spaces and large greens, which creates a comfortable game for all handicaps. The 18-hole, par 72 golf course, designed by the American Ron Kirby, is located in the upper area of Puerto del Carmen, from where you can see the Ajache Natural Park and the Atlantic Ocean. It is also only 5 minutes from the best hotels and beaches, and 10 minutes from the César Manrique-Lanzarote Airport.
The golf course is designed for players of all levels. It has wide fairways and large greens (short grass areas around the hole or flag).
