Golf in Gran Canaria
Enjoy your favourite sport on an island where golf became a recognised and practised sport long before mainland Spain. Gran Canaria bears in its modern history the stamp of Great Britain, as there was a great influence of British visitors during the first half of the twentieth century, thanks to the international trade that transited through the Puerto de La Luz in the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
This left British traits in a Canarian culture that was in full development and that experienced moments of uncertainty for a long time. Thanks to the knowledge left by these traders and investors, a large part of the culture of tourism in Gran Canaria developed.
For these reasons, we recommend you to experience first-hand the golf culture of the island, by visiting the first golf course in Spain, the Real Club de Golf Las Palmas. One of the most emblematic golf courses in Gran Canaria, not only because of its history, but also because of the influence that has been generated around this place, as there were several projects that arose after the "first shot" that was made on this golf course.
