Golf is a precision sport that is played in the open air on natural lawn and normally over 18 different rounds known as holes. Up until not long ago, the only way to play golf in Lanzarote was at Costa Teguise Golf, located in the tourist resort of Costa Teguise. With 18 holes and sea views, the club management offers learning and playing services, such as the option to hire all the required equipment for a session (clubs, balls, golf cart…). As of the beginning of October, the golf course in Tías, also equipped with 18 holes, became another option.
The atmosphere in these clubs is particularly notable because of its tranquility: an essential requirement for playing golf. You can find golfers of all ages, from: children who seem like they cannot handle the club, skillfully developing their drives; youngsters who handle the clubs in such a beautifully natural way; and mostly adults, over 50, who keep physically fit with long walks between holes, and who mainly train with groups of friends.
Golf is an ideal leisure activity that brings together parents and children. This situation has not gone unnoticed by the club management, which offers promotions to facilitate this possibility. Playing the 18 holes at Costa Teguise costs € 55 or € 68, depending on the season, and for under 18’s, there is a 50% discount. The promotion also applies for 9 holes (half the course): € 41 or € 52, depending on the season (low season, from May 1st to September 30th 2008; high season, from October 1st 2007 to April 30th 2008). It is not necessary to buy clubs and golf balls before you decide to give it a try. The club rents a complete set of clubs (€ 25) and a half set (€ 15). In Tías, an 18 or 9-hole game costs € 68 or € 40, respectively. Young golfers can play the whole course for € 40.
