La Gomera welcomes the Alps Tour
The second half of the Alps Tour season is well underway and rising golf stars are heading this week to the small island of La Gomera, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, for the Fred Olsen Alps de La Gomera July 12th through July 14th.
It is the first time the Alps Tour makes a stop in La Gomera and its 378 square kilometers area. The island has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO due to its ecological treasure with its rich vegetation and species rarely found anywhere else on the planet. The magnificent peak Garajonay, culminating at 1.487 meters above sea level, looks at the Atlantic Ocean in a sequence of mountains and canyons that form almost perfect circles.
The tournament is played at the Tecina Golf La Gomera, a 18-hole par 71 golf course designed by renowned golf course architect Donald Steel. The course has the particularity of being built on top of a cliff in a succession of terraces down the mountain overlooking the Atlantic.
