El Cortijo Club de Campo (18 Holes, Par 72), is situated in Tenerife, Spain, between the airport and the island capital Las Palmas. The course was designed designed by Blake Stirling & Marco Martín (Global Golf Design), this very urbane 18-hole golf course lies in the middle of an industrial area. The rather unusual surroundings for a golf course should not put you off though, built in antique farm along three valleys with a huge representation of native flora.
It has quick greens and the course boasts six lakes and more than six hundred century-old palm trees, the lakes along the course brings freshness and provides to El Cortijo a natural landscape difficult to equal. With up to 6 tees to play off El Cortijo is set-up to accommodate all player levels. The fairway grass is of the “Bermuda 419″ type and the greens are planted with the providence strain of the Agrotis type, both reflecting the care and expense which has gone into this course.
This course has host international championships like the Peugeot Oki Tour and the Professional Senior and Women’s Spanish Championships. Facilities include a golf school, practise course, shop, chipping green, putting green, and practise bunkers.
