A Fuerteventura golf holiday is the opportunity to play a round in the sunshine and pleasant temperatures at any time of the year. Playing golf on Fuerteventura is a relatively new experience, as the three main courses have only been established in the last 12 years. Increasing numbers of people are coming to play golf and enjoy the sunshine and hospitality that is on offer on the island.
