Full Course Lowdown

On the border of Spain, located next door to the Algarve, prepare for Mediterranean golf at its finest: outrageous weather, stunning fairways, and ice-cold beverages to finish the round.

Isla Canela hosts a variety of challenges, thrills, and hazards. Does the group have what it takes? Grab your clubs and find out!


The 1st features a harsh dogleg at the start of the fairway. Don't be intimidated. Hit the centre of the track and prepare to carry over the split to hit the dancefloor.

For those who cannot avoid the drink, the 3rd is a nightmare. We think this par-3 is harsh, with a large lake and a bunker at the back of the green, accuracy is vital.

At the end of the front nine, favour the right of the fairway to avoid any bunker trouble and enjoy a simple path towards the green. You can't slip up here.

The 11th, a par 5, requires a straight drive down the middle to find the fairway and clear some yardage. Four bunkers surround the green, so a lay-up for the approach will work.

To finish, an incredibly harsh dogleg hides the dancefloor. Find the fairway from the tee box, navigate the track carefully, then approach from a distance--but avoid the bunkers at the back.


Nope, not a clubhouse, a restaurant, instead. The menu is crazy at Thebussem Links Restaurant, packed with Mediterranean favourites and British 19th-hole classics. What will you have?

Order your favourite beverage, discuss the round, and catch up with the live sport on the large TV screens.
