PowerPlay Golf is to launch a tournament on the resort island of Gran Canaria at the Anfi Tauro Golf & Luxury Resort on Saturday 28 November.

The new PowerPlay Golf Gran Canaria League will involve nine holes, two flags on each green and a risk-and-reward challenge style. Tour operator GolfCanarias.org is organising the tournament, which starts on the front nine of the Anfi Tauro golf course.

“The PowerPlay Golf Gran Canaria League will help to promote the wonderful experiences which golfers can find in The Canary Islands,” said GolfCanarias.org managing director, Gary Stevens. “We look forward to seeing PowerPlay Golf’s skull and crossbones logo fly on Spanish soil for the first time in history.”

“We welcome the initiative shown by GolfCanarias.org; they are pioneering the PowerPlay Golf movement in Spain,” said PowerPlay Golf co-creator Peter McEvoy. “We expect the League to be very popular throughout the winter period on Gran Canaria, as it halves both the time needed and the entry cost to play in what should be one of the island’s most exciting golf events for years.”
