El Cortijo, Gran Canaria

View of El Cortijo on the island of Gran Canaria

Opened in 2002 to host the Spanish Open that year ( won by Sergio Garcia ) this course is just 6 kilometres from Las Palmas in the north of the island – it is set amidst 3 valleys of a former plantation full of indigenous flora – making it a truly wonderful setting for a golf course. The par 72 – 6308 metres 18 hole course designed by Blake Stirling boasts very fast greens which need a lot of care when putting.

Situated among the course are 6 lakes which bring water into play on several holes. The course has all facilities which are required by the discerning golfer.
