Golf Tenerife, Enjoy Buenavista Golf Course

By: Grahame Simpson

Buenavista golf is a beautiful course sometimes called the Pebble Beach of Tenerife. It is situated in the North East of the Tenerife Island next to the Teno Mountain range. Buenavista Golf has been designed by Seve Ballesteros on the cliffs of this stunning natural area protected rural park, and the mountains behind.

This Tenerife course was opened in 2003 and offers a breath taking layout along the rugged coastline of Isla Baja where several of the greens are on the cliffs edge giving the impression they are suspended in air.

The course has been designed to challenge golfers and to be enjoyed by all golfers. Tenerife has the perfect golfing climate all year round with an average temperature of 23 degrees and very little rainfall.

Buenavista has some great holes; the following is information and playing tips for some of them.

Hole 3 is a sharp dog leg to the left where to long a drive will find the bunkers just off the fairway. The green is protected by two large bunkers in front and another left side bunker.

Hole 5 has a tight fairway and you don't want to be anywhere other than the middle. There is a lake to the right and left before you reach the green and bunkers protecting the sides and back.

Hole 9 needs to be looked at and thought about. Club selection and direction are important due to fairway bunkers on the right and left side before the fairway turns to the left. The best approach to the green is from the right side but stay on the fairway. The green has a bunker in front and two lakes to the left.

Hole 15 is a long par 3 where the green is on the edge of the cliff. The wind can make club selection tricky, but don't go over.

Hole 16 runs parallel with the coast and offers some magnificent views. It is a doge leg to the left, where you don't want to drive to long or you will find the tree. The green is quite small and has a bunker in front on the right.

Hole 18 is a beautiful finishing hole par 5 with a very difficult approach to the green. You want to keep the drive as close to the left as possible as there are bunkers on the right and this is the easier approach shot. In front of the green is water, either a river or a lake depending on your approach.

Buenavista Golf Course has a clubhouse where you can enjoy the bar and restaurant from the different terraces offering stunning views of the course and the Atlantic Ocean.
