Course: Abama Golf course
Canary Islands, Province:
Dave Thomas put more than 50 years of experience of the professional golf industry into the creation of Abamas golf course, now widely regarded as one of his greatest achievements. Rambling over 6,271 metres of ever-changing terrain, it features 22 lakes linked by impressive waterfalls and white-sand bunkers, and 25,000 palm trees. The course reaches a high point of 315 metres above sea level, and most holes provide spectacular views of the Atlantic and the island of La Gomera. The large greens provide an infinite choice of flag positions which, combined with the wide tee areas at each hole, makes the course accessible to players with high handicaps, and a challenge even for the most experienced golfer.
