Fuerteventura is a hidden gem. With a temperate climate, crystal blue waters and a laid back atmosphere, it almost feels like the Caribbean!

Fuerteventura Golf (2)

Fuerteventura Golf

Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast, with only 100km separating the ‘Punta de la Entallada’ on its west coast from Cape Juby in Morocco, and is the second largest (after Tenerife) of all the islands. With 3000 hours of sunshine a year, the climate is very similar to Florida and Mexico, which are on the same latitude, making the island a great choice for some guaranteed winter sunshine – perfect for some relaxed holiday golf!

Relaxed Resort

We stay at the charming resort of Caleta de Fuste, on the eastern coast, conveniently close to both of the golf courses that we are playing – which lie a mere five minutes transfer away from the hotel

This laid-back, relaxed resort is comprised mainly of low-rise whitewashed accommodation and hotels fringing the sheltered horseshoe shaped bay of sweeping golden sands. When you are not soaking up the rays, the resort has a variety of shops, cafés and lively bars to sample. At night, the pace is low-key, perfect for a stroll after dinner in the warm evening air along the seafront to admire the picturesque 18th-century watchtower and castle overlooking the marina.

Golf Schedule

5 rounds: Fuerteventura x 3, Golf Club Salinas de Antigua x 2
Handicap certificates are required.

Golf Course

18 holes, 6069 metres, Par 70
Designed by the renowned Juan Catarineau this course offers a fi ne round of golf. The greens are well-protected by bunkers, lakes and streams. There are 2 par 5’s and the rest are par 4’s. The course is generally fl at, with the exception of the 17th and 18th holes. The latter is undoubtedly the highlight - a par 4 dogleg, which drops downhill, offering wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean en route.

 

Golf Club Salinas de Antigua

18 holes, 5395 metres, Par 70
Designed by world champion Manuel Piñero, Salinas’ landscape is formed by hills and dunes, which offer protection from the wind. Desert areas and 4 lakes will challenge your technical ability, whilst demanding a good dose of strategy! The 11th is a dogleg right, with a lake running down the middle of the fairway. When approaching the green, we could have both water and out-of bounds to contend with.

 

Elba Sara Beach & Golf Resort

​The friendly hotel is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday, enjoying an enviable location overlooking the ocean and the long sandy beach. The hotel sits in its own beautifully maintained grounds and has 2 large outdoor pools (one of which is heated in the winter) with plenty of sunbeds dotted around the spacious sun terraces.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Fuerteventura Airport to the Elba Sara Hotel is approximately 15 minutes., depending on weather and traffic.

Golfing Schedule:
5 rounds of organised golf per week: Fuerteventura Golf Course x 3, Golf Club Salinas de Antigua x 2

Golf Handicaps
This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for ladies and 28 or lower for gentlemen.

Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, and if you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip. This enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly.

If you are uncertain about these requirements please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you.

Golf Club Insurance
Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag.

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire
Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements.

Golf Footwear
Golf shoes with soft spikes are required.

Carriage of Clubs
We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop.

What to Wear
Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
