Just 5 kilometres from Playa de las Americas, Golf Costa Adeje was created with the ambition of becoming the most important leisure development in the Canary Islands.

The first 18 holes of the course opened in 1998 and work is due to begin on a nine hole extension. Designed by the internationally renowned architect Pepe Gancedo, the layout is characteristic of his drawing board, "hand built", he says, adapting itself to the natural terrain and the restored stone walls from former agricultural terracing. The views from the course take in the island of La Gomera, the mountain range of Adeje, Playa de la Americas and the sea.

The greens are generally large and there are a number of doglegs. The round begins with a long par five (510m) and bunkers wait to catch stray balls of the tee. The 2nd is short with a ravine to the right and a green formed on two levels makes it more difficult when the flag is placed at the back. The 4th follows a gentle slope downhill towards the sea and is crossed at regular intervals by the step-like stone walls of the former banana plantation. There are two greens, one directly in front with the sea beyond and the other closer to the tee on the right.

The 14th is an uphill par three and it is necessary to attack the green which is

protected by a deep bunker in front, and the 18th is a spectacular finishing hole, also a par 5, where the downhill aspect makes the green more accessible in two, although those wanting to be sure to avoid the water generally settle for three strokes.

To get from the main course to the driving range and the golf school, there is an elevator to take players and even buggies down through the natural rock.
