In November 7, World Golf Award will announce winners in 11 categories . Among the shortlisted golf courses we can find Golf Las Américas and The Ritz-Carlton, Abama. They have both nominated to be named as 'Spain's Best Golf Course'.
Personally I miss residential real estate solution in both golf courses. There can be great synergies between golf course + hotel + residential real estate. Integrated golf resort model could bring more stable financial situation. In Spain cca. 50% of the golf clubs have only hotels according to KPMG.
Designed by European golf legend John Jacobs and measuring 6,617 yards, Golf Las Américas is situated in the heart of Playa de Las Américas, one of the most important tourist centres in the south of Tenerife.
Situated in the peaceful area of Guía de Isora in west Tenerife, the 18-hole course at The Ritz-Carlton, Abama, was created by Dave Thomas and provides a different challenge, with golfers required to negotiate 22 water hazards, hundreds of palm trees and more than 300 species of trees and plants of sub-tropical varieties.
