Year-round sunshine will be awaiting the visitors to Tenerife as the island plays host to the prestigious IAGTO Tenerife Golf Trophy (May 20-23).

It’s the fifth hosting of the popular tournament, which has previously been staged in Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, Costa Blanca and Costa Calida and is regarded as one of the leading events on the golf tourism calendar.

More than 90 tour operators from 29 countries will descend upon the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands to discover the many golf, cultural and historic experiences that Tenerife has to offer, as well as meeting with representatives from regional golf resorts, golf courses, hotels and inbound operators.

Tenerife features nine courses and a wide variety of layouts: Buenavista and Real Club de Golf de Tenerife in the north, and Golf Costa Adeje, Abama, Las Americas, Golf del Sur, Amarilla, and Los Palos in the south. Tecina Golf is a 40-minute ferry ride from the mainland on the beautiful island of La Gomera.

The accommodation options are also excellent and can meet the demands of any type of holiday and several top-class hotels are several taking part in the programme to showcase the destination even further.

IAGTO spokesperson, Peter Walton, said: “Tenerife remains a superb destination for golfers throughout the year with its inviting climate. There is rich diversity among the golf courses and the accommodation options are second to none. I’m sure it will be a fantastic event.”

Tenerife Golf’s Carlos Beautell, said: “It’s a huge honour to host the IAGTO Tenerife Golf Trophy. We look forward to providing our customary warm welcome and we will be proud to show everyone the quality of our golf courses and the ongoing attraction of our island.”

The event is just one of the highlights in a busy 2019 on the Tenerife golf calendar as it continues to promote the destination to UK and European golfers in partnership with leading UK public relations and marketing agency Azalea. A pan-European group media trip will also take place in April with journalists from countries across the continent experiencing the special attraction of the popular island and the quality, value and depth of Tenerife golf.

Average year-round temperatures of 23°c Tenerife provide the ideal climate to enjoy a relaxing golf break thanks to cooling trade winds; while – in contrast to almost everywhere else – golf and hotel rates are generally 20 per cent cheaper in the summer months.

The island also offers 70km of beaches and a wide range of cultural highlights and activities both on and off the water, making it the ideal location for a golf break. Tenerife is served by two airports – Tenerife North and Tenerife South – and is barely a four-hour flight from the UK, and no more than a five-hour direct flight from most main European cities.
