Flaherty y Prieto entran en la historia de Golf Las Américas y verán inscritos sus nombres en la entrada de la Caa Club.
En 1a categoría, Conor se impuso en una intensa final a Guillermo Moreno Masiá por 3 y 2. Y en 2a Álex Prieto demostró su gran mejoría tras unos meses de coaching con el pro de nuestra Academia James Ferraby Golf y no dio opciones a Juan Pablo Samaniego (6 y 4).

Today’s Doodle celebrates this North Atlantic island nation— known for its glaciers, geysers, and volcanoes—where festivities will take place in every town and village, particularly in the capital city of Reykjavík.
Official ceremonies include speeches, a rendition of Iceland’s national anthem, "Lofsöngur,” and a poem read by Fjallkonan, "the lady of the mountain," a symbol of Iceland dressed in the national costume known as Skautbúningur. Iceland has a long tradition of strong feminine role models and was the first country to elect a female head of state in 1980.

Scottish players living in Tenerife Brian and Elliot Thom (father & son)
This past Sunday, Golf Las Américas celebrated the Father's Day together with numerous parents and their children of all ages, who joined the celebration of this important family day in the UK. Our Golf course located in the Canary Islands wished to support the celebration of this special festivity with this event and unite families on the course.
Throughout the past week, Golf Las Américas has placed the Union Jack on the pins of the holes as a tribute to the United Kingdom during this special week, in which the most important female amateur golf tournament was held: the Women's Amateur Championship in the Northern Irish course of County Down Golf Club, with the final winner as the English Emily Toy.
Golf Las Américas, located in the south of the island of Tenerife, is a 18-hole garden in the heart of Playa de Las Américas. The centre is very well connected, easy to get to and recognised for its excellent state of maintenance and the speed of its greens, with an annual average temperature of 23ºC. About 2/3 of the players who visit this beautiful course are of British origin and it is for this reason that our Team have adapted to provide a warm welcome for British players with different events, promotions and celebrations throughout the year.
The 4+1 offer during a major returns!
After the success of this online campaign proposed by the Golf Las Américas Academy during the last Masters of Augusta, in which our visitors and also resident players benefited from a 4+1 offer in golf lessons (booking 4 classes of 1 hour, we give you 1 as an extra bonus), we will launch again this promotion in accordance with another major of the golf season: the 119th US Open Championship, which starts today in the emblematic Californian course of Pebble Beach.
Up to 12 tournament champions become part of the field, highlighting the third-time champion Tiger Woods (who won again this season at one of the greatest, the Masters) and second-time champions Brooks Koepka (current world number 1 ) and Ernie Els. Also the numbers 2 and 3 of the World Ranking, Dustin Johnson and Rory Mcilroy, as well as Justin Rose or Martin Kaymer are other players who already know what winning the US Open means.
Golf Las Américas want to also highlight to you the participation of the Canarian representative Rafa Cabrera Bello, Top40 of the world, who shares his match today with Kevin Na and Keegan Bradley. The other Spaniards are Sergio García (played with Hideki Matsuyama and Tommy Fleetwood), and Jon Rahm (current number 13 worldwide), who debuted in the 3rd biggest event of the year with a real match (with Rory McIlroy and Marc Leishman). The 4th Spanish player is the debutant Adrià Arnaus, who in his first year on the European Tour ventured to play the US Open preview at Walton Heath and obtained a historical classification.
