Buenavista Golf Course
Buenavista Golf Course is situated in the extreme North-Western corner of the island of Tenerife, Spain; located on striking cliffs and flanked by the impressive Teno Country Park. This 18 holes and Par 72 golf course was designed by Seve Ballesteros and it was inaugurated in October 2003. By making the most of its close proximity to the stunning coastline, the course has been perfectly integrated into the terrain in a way that on several of the greens the feeling you get is that the ball is being hit straight into the ocean.
Fairways at Buenavista Golf Course are generally wide and forgiving, though do not stray too far into the lateral waste areas as thick vegetation and rocks will hamper any attempt at retrieving a stray ball. Around the greens, sand-based putting surfaces are very receptive to holding approach shots and bunkers are generally wide and shallow, allowing a fair number of “sand saves” to be made. In the first half, the most demanding holes are the par fours and in the second half, the par threes require greater precision, particularly the 15th and the 17th holes, both on the edge of a cliff.
The large central lake in front of the Club House between the 9th and 18th holes and a waterfall are water obstacles that lend a fresh feel to this unusual golf course in North Tenerife. The recommended route to the course is via the small town of El Tanque but we recommend that you hang a left at Santiago del Tiede and take the narrow, twisting mountain road through Masca. Combining the sensational scenery of this tourist trail with 18 holes at Buenavista is an experience not to be missed.
The contrast of the Atlantic Ocean with the majestic Macizo of Teno makes the players that visit Buenavista Golf Course, feel in full harmony with the environment and feel nature in its purest form.
