Buenavista Golf course is perched in the north-west corner of the island and definitely worth the journey. This very well-maintained Seve Ballesteros-designed course is a good challenge from the first hole, but it is possible to post a good score if you don’t give up too soon. Watch out for the signature S built into the golf course.

Surrounded by a mountain range and The Atlantic Ocean,  the flora and the fauna on the course is distracting and, sadly, great ball traps. Five greens are close to the small cliffs which give an impression of hitting right into the water! All the clubs  in your bag are required. Not long but Buenavista makes for a delightful day out. 40 miles north of Playa de las Americas. You can also play and stay at the adult-only Melia Hacienda del Conde Hotel and spa right next door.  This makes a great two-centre base with the south of the island.
