Golf in FuerteventuraWhile Fuerteventura is not yet well-known as a Golfing destination, it soon will be with the island's third Golf Course (in Jandia) due to open later this year and 3 more Golf Courses either in-construction or in the planning stages. These Golf Courses will be located in Pajara, El Cotillo and Puerto del Rosario.
Fuerteventura Golf Club
Fuerteventura's first golf course, the Fuerteventura Golf Club was completed in 2002 and played host to the Spanish Open two years later in 2004.
Located in the resort of Caleta de Fuste, the course was designed by Juan Catarineu who carefully considered local conditions (the wind) in the design. The 18-hole, par 70 Championship Course features large greens (average of 614 square meters) and fairways of up to 50 meters wide.
The course has a good balance of challenging and easier holes and besides the wind there are also several water features to contend with. There is a Driving Range on site and the club house doubles as a 5 Star Hotel.
Salinas de Antigua
Salinas de Antigua, located in Caleta de Fuste, is a 5500 metre, Par 70 course with four water hazards. The course, which was completed at the end of 2006, was designed by Manolo Piņero.
La Pared Golf Academy
This small Golf School with a 6 hole Pitch and Putt course, putting green and driving range is located in the south-west of the island.
