For the third season in a row golf fans will be excited to hear that the Challenge de Espana golf tournament will be returning to the Canary Islands as it is run on the Tecina Golf in La Gomera, just north of Tenerife. This means that everyone who goes to Tenerife for all the amazing golfing it has on offer can hop on a ferry to La Gomera when their favourite players are competing to watch some of the action.
The course at La Gomera is 6937 yards and is a par 71 course with a history of some impressive wins there in various tournaments. Rhys Davies from Wales triumphed in 2009 with a one stroke victory over his opponent and since then he has gone from strength to strength in various European tours. The competition has been running since 1999 in various locations, but for the past three years it has been held in the La Gomera site and attractive a lot of positive responses. The course has even been improved and updated over the last two years for the challenge and the other various competitions and matches throughout the year and the owner of the site is confident that there will be a lot of publicity there this year with more rising stars competing for their cards for the main golfing tour in Europe.
Primos Pusnik, the director of Tecina Golf, has said that the fact the federation has decided to return to La Gomera is “very important for us, because it means that our course at Tecina Golf reaches the highest levels required by the tour. Once again, and for the third straight year, we will try our best to present the course in the best possible condition.”
