The prestigious golf architect Jose Gancedo is the architect of Golf Costa Adeje, taking advantage of the natural characteristics of the land, located on some old banana trees with the classic shape of terraces, wonderfully integrated into the course. Years later, nine more holes were added to the course, built next to the driving range, named Los Lagos. These are considerably shorter than the original course, although it has 6 small lakes that can make the game fun especially for the higher handicaps, although we will only look at the main course.
Costa Adeje is a fairly long course, where the greatest dangers are found in the ravines that run alongside some of the fairways, especially from hole 3 to 8, although in most cases the holes run parallel, so we can always lean a little on one side of the fairway to avoid danger. In spite of having 6 par 5's, these are quite long and some like hole 3 or 11 with quite a lot of danger on both sides, so unless you have a lot of power, they are not necessarily clear birdie opportunities.
One of its most outstanding features, apart from the layout of the terraces, is the black sand that usually separates the holes, which makes it easier to hit if you lose the fairway, as long as one of the many palm trees that flank the course does not hinder you. The rough is a little bit tricky, because although it is not very high, if the ball is hollowed out in the grass it is difficult to make good contact and make the expected distance.
The greens generally are not excessively complicated, although some have several platforms, which makes it essential to be on the one where the flag is placed or on a lower one, because otherwise it will be impossible to stop the ball near the hole. This is what happens in holes 9 and 14. In holes 12 and 18 there are two well differentiated areas where it is also important to leave the ball in the right one to avoid three putting. They are usually very fast, so you have to be very careful, especially when putting downhill.
The climate in the area is one of the best on the island for golfing. It is very similar to other courses such as Abama Golf or Golf Las américas, with no rain or wind almost all year round. This one usually appears as a soft breeze wich doesn't affects the flight of the ball, and yet it will be well received to make the high temperatures more bearable, especially in summer.
In spite of being located in an area with a certain unevenness, thanks to the excellent design of Golf Costa Adeje, this fact does not affect the visibility in the game, so on all the strokes we face off in the course we will have a clear vision of our objective. And although it is located in a rather dry area, the large number of palm trees and other typical trees of the island that surround all the holes together with the views of the sea and the neighbouring island of La Gomera makes the environment very pleasant.
¿Who will really enjoy playing in Golf Costa Adeje?
Players with good punch, otherwise you can make it very long even coming out of the yellow bars.
