Salobre Golf & Resort (Old/South course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1999

Salobre Golf & Resort (Old course): Salobre is one of the newest golf resort destinations on Gran Canaria, and alone in having two 18-hole championship golf courses. The Old course (originally known as the South course) is a solid, well-structured and enjoyable resort-style layout.

The two nine-hole loops gently work their way up and into a valley, where arid rugged slopes and terraces are blended with an enjoyable and relatively easy-going, open parkland layout. Small, squat palm trees and rolling earthmounds separate the good width fairways, with some degree of elevation change present on each hole. At the centre of the course a small oasis-like water feature incorporates two small ponds joined by a waterfall. One pond must be crossed at the short, downhill par-3 3rd, the other on your drive at the tightly dog-legging par-4 16th. Chattering birds (canaries perhaps?), also enjoy this lush oasis.

On the back-nine the most memorable stretch of holes loops around a small hill, and includes the excellent 14th, arguably the best hole on the course. This signature par-3 is played from tee-boxes that cling to the side of the hill; the good-sized green down below is framed by a rocky backdrop. Beyond the course, housing is very limited, while many views can be enjoyed onto distant volcanic hills and mountains, and down to the Atlantic Ocean.

Did you know?

Salobre's logo features a native plant of the Canary Islands, the cactus-like Cardon (Euphorbia Canariensis). Also known to horticulturists as Canary Island Spurge or Hercules Club, this succulent member of the family Euphorbiaceae and genus Euphorbia, grows in the arid and humid environment of the lowest areas in the Canary Islands. It is a small tree, rather than a cactus, and grows up to 3-4 meters high. >> Salobre is the Spanish word meaning brackish or salty.
