The new 18 hole Playitas Golf course in Las Playitas, Fuerteventura has been designed by the popular Scottish golf course architect John Chilver Stainer whose philosophy was to create a fair but challenging course that would appeal to all levels of golf players.
The course has been shaped taking advantage of the natural hills and valleys in contrast with the surrounding rugged, volcanic mountains. Splendid sea views can be enjoyed from almost every hole.
Perhaps the most memorable feature of the course is the shaping of the greens which require precision with approach shots. And the many plateaus and undulations combined with fast bent grass greens can cost even the best player to suffer those dreaded three putts.
Playitas Golf has four ponds and many waterways which come into play on all but five of the holes.
Our signature hole is the Par 3 15th which at 169m with water short and right of the green and the prevailing wind coming from the left requires a committed and well executed shot.
By modern standards the course is relatively short with a Par 67 of 4824m but an exciting mixture of eight Par 3's, seven Par 4's and three Par 5's make it a really enjoyable game of golf which will require every club in the bag.
We would like to inform you that the Playitas Golf course is closed, the expected reopening date will be on the 15th of July 2011.
