World of Leading Golf Spreads Wings to The Canaries

The host venue for the 2014 Tenerife Open de Espana Femenino is among the latest new members of World of Leading Golf (WLG), an international organisation representing some of the world’s best golf venues.
Golf Costa Adeje, in southern Tenerife, dates from 1998 and has previously hosted the Tenerife Ladies Open on three occasions. It is the first club in the Canary Islands to be accepted into WLG.
The 27-hole course was designed by the renowned architect Pepe Gancedo – who also created La Finca, in Alicante, and Monte Mayor, in Malaga, among many others – and offers views of the island of La Gomera, the mountain range of Adeje and the resort of Playa de la Americas.
Costa Adeje has been joined in WLG by the Italian Modena Golf & Country Club, located just 10km outside of the city from which it takes its name. Designed by two-time Masters champion and former Ryder Cup captain Bernhard Langer and US architect Jim Engh, the par-72, 6,423-yard course is regarded as one of the finest in Italy and has previously hosted the Italian Open.
Claus Feldt, WLG’s general manager, added: “We are delighted to welcome these two new members into WLG. As always they bring with them quality, beauty and the very highest commitment to standards of service – the hallmarks of all WLG member clubs.
“As the first member from the Canary Islands, Golf Costa Adeje has taken a unique and historic position in the ongoing expansion of WLG and we look forward to welcoming further venues from the other islands in the archipelago: Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and La Gomera.”
WLG focuses on marketing and communication platforms for certified premium clubs in order to promote awareness. Print and on-line publications serve as reference guides for the demanding golfer, while ‘members only’ travel offers and other advantages help deepen the relationship between the designated golfers and WLG member clubs.
