The island of eternal spring. 60 km of beaches on 236 km of coast: in Gran Canaria they are kissed by the sun all year round. Thanks to the trade winds and the Azores anticyclone, which drive away rain and extreme temperatures by keeping them constant around 22 degrees. A climate envied by the world that further frames a place of primordial beauty: an island that in one place contains many more with iridescent landscapes ranging from sand dunes to expanses of immense pine forests up to very high peaks: such as the Peak of Las Nieves which with 1,949 meters is in the central point of the island, as if Mother Nature had also set up a lookout to enjoy its panorama.

GOLF IN LANZAROTE ISLAND
It is one of the most beautiful and characteristic places on Earth. It is a volcanic island and belongs to the Canary Islands archipelago, about one hundred kilometers from the coast of Morocco. Lanzarote is the first island encountered by the routes of the navigators of the past and the first to be conquered.
The climate in Lanzarote is warmer and drier than the other sister islands, due to the warm winds from the Sahara that alternate with the Atlantic breezes. Nor can we hope for rainfall for a climate change, which is decidedly not very effective at cooling the air despite the fact that you would like it so much.
The protection of the environment, its intact nature, the feeling of being in a primitive environment, all inspire a strange sensation of mystery and illusion. It is no coincidence that this Canary Island has been declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
To book the Tee Time, it is best to send an email to the secretary of the Golf Club you have chosen, asking for availability, obviously indicating the day and an indicative time. You can find the e-mail address by opening the Golf Club website from “Open website” and then searching for “contacts” or some Golf Clubs have the form to fill out to get the Tee Time. I think it’s better to send an email to the Secretariat. Opens Google Map at the point of the Golf Club. You can have the necessary information to reach the playing field or to know the distances for example from the Hotel you have chosen for the stay.

WHAT TO EAT IN GRAN CANARIA & LANZAROTE
The dishes of Gran Canaria are simple and produced with high quality ingredients, mainly thanks to the climate and the soil of volcanic origin. Many recipes are the result of Spanish, Latin American and Canarii (Guanci) influences or the first inhabitants of the islands
It is a food obtained by grinding toasted cereals (wheat, corn, barley). It is used to cook many countless dishes and desserts. The clumsy escaldado is a typical dish, or fish broth based on gofio, served with sautéed garlic and red onion.
Flor de Guía cheese is produced in the highest areas of Guía and Gáldar, in the north-west of Gran Canaria. It is pale yellow and is made with cow and sheep milk. It is manufactured in a totally artisanal way, using vegetable rennet, obtained from the thistle inflorescences, from which the name derives.
