Golf lovers will find a perfect place to enjoy their passion in Maspalomas. In fact, only a few kilometres from the centre of the town are two courses that will delight people who are travelling with their clubs.
The first of these is Maspalomas Golf. It’s surrounded by the Maspalomas Dunes Natural Park, which makes its location enviable and practically unique. It was designed by Mackenzie Ross over an area of 400 hectares. It is flat and long. The fairways that cross the courses have 18 holes and are long and broad.

It has practice areas, a restaurant and a shop to complete your kit.
Another course to practice your favourite sport is Lopesan Meloneras Golf. Opened in June 2006, its 18 holes were designed by Rob Kirby. It offers a number of services for players, and you can enjoy a few drinks in its restaurant after a game.
