Explore all eight of the island’s 18-hole courses
Home to eight diverse courses and a mild year-round climate, Gran Canaria has earned its place as a beloved destination for golfers.
Known as the “continent in miniature,” Gran Canaria’s golf courses are just as diverse as the island’s incredible landscapes. Huge beaches, high mountains and deep valleys, sub-tropical forests and deserts provide wonderful surroundings for eight diverse 18-hole golf courses.
We offer reduced green fees at all of these, which include the oldest in Spain – the Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas. Three courses are within the immediate vicinity of the hotel: Maspalomas Golf and Meloneras Golf are both just five minutes’ drive from the Seaside Palm Beach, and the two courses at Salobre Golf are both 15 minutes’ away.
18 holes par 73
The prestigious par-73, 18-hole course in the south of the island is surrounded by the dunes of Maspalomas. Its proximity to the ocean and the constant gentle breeze provides the ideal conditions for a great round of golf. The course is only a five-minute drive from Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia and Seaside Palm Beach, and can be reached from Seaside Sandy Beach within 10 minutes.
18 holes par 71
The par-71, 18-hole course is among the newest and offers players spectacular views of the sea and the wonderful mountain panorama. Meloneras Golf is only a five-minute drive from Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia and Seaside Palm Beach, and can be reached from Seaside Sandy Beach within 10 minutes.
Salobre Golf Old Course (18 holes par 71) and Salobre Golf New Course (18 holes par 72)
The Salobre Golf facility is located in scenery which is typical of the south of the island, featuring ravines, volcanic rock and a view of both mountains and sea. There are two 18-hole courses (the New Course -par 72- and Old Course -par 71-), making Salobre the only 36-hole golf club in the Canary Islands. The club is just 15 minutes' drive from Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia and Seaside Palm Beach, and about 20 minutes from Seaside Sandy Beach.
Anfi Tauro Golf
18 holes par 72
This golf course is also in the south of Gran Canaria, in the district of Mogán, and is the island's latest 18-hole course (par 72). The rock formations on the course are reminiscent of Arizona, with the eighth green, for example, completely surrounded by red stone. The club also features the Anfi Tauro par-3 course together with an excellent driving range, chipping area, putting greens and several practice bunkers. Both courses are around 25 minutes' drive from Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia and Seaside Palm Beach.
El Cortijo Club de campo
18 holes par 72
This golf course is located in the district of Telde, not far from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The course is framed by ancient palm trees, stretches across three valleys and contains a number of small lakes. It is one of the longest courses in Spain (18 holes, par 72) and is about 50 minutes' drive from the Seaside Hotels.
Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas
18 holes par 71
Real Club de Golf Las Palmas was established by English immigrants as long ago as 1891, before being remodelled in 1957 by the well-known architect Mackenzie Ross. The course has an impressive location on the edge of the extinct volcano 'Bandama'. Not far from the island's capital city, the course (18 holes, par 71) offers a spectacular panorama of the volcanic mountains and the Atlantic and is about sixty minutes' drive from the Seaside Hotels.
