Gran Canaria is the third-largest island in the Canaries’ archipelago, but accounts for almost half the population and is a continent in miniature, with a dramatic variation of terrain, ranging from the green and leafy north to the mountainous interior and desert south. The centre has dramatic mountains while contrasting with these unspoiled peaks and valleys is a rugged coastline interspersed with white sandy beaches.
The course will be challenging and diverse, with temperatures going from 25 degrees at beach level to 10C at 1,500 meters above sea level. The landscape is unique, varied and technical, where lovers of a good honest course will shine!
