Amarilla Golf & Country Club Golf Course
Amarilla Golf is another course designed by Donald Steele, opened in 1989 and is close to Golf Del Sur and Tenerife South airport.
Amarilla Golf is set among residential and holiday accommodation with about half the fairways having villas or apartments running along part of their length. The hole that grips everyone is the short par three fifth; 115 metres off the yellow tees - there is no fairway, just the sea (Atlantic Ocean!) to cross and then to land on a small green, it can play anything from a wedge to a five iron depending on wind conditions. This Tenerife golf hole must rank as one of the most spectacular par threes in the world.
Amarilla golf is a wonderful test of golf and of golf course management; featuring long par fours and short par threes which need considerable thought, Amarilla golf course is not easy for the once a year holiday hacker. The course is fair but punishing for the golfer trying too hard who gets a little wayward, push or pull a shot here and you won't find an accommodating adjacent fairway from which to play the next shot.
