The European Tour now moves to the Spanish Canary Islands for the next three events and first up is the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open, which is being held at Maspalomas Golf on Grand Canaria. The course was designed by Ron Kirby and opened for play in June 2006 and hosted the 2007 Spanish PGA Championship.

Meloneras Golf is located on the Meloneras coast, between the Maspalomas Dunes and the harbour of Pasito Blanco in the southern part of Gran Canaria. The famous Dunes don’t come into play as the course lies further to the west, with the course sitting on the clifftops overlooking Pasito Blanco marina and La Punta Yacht Club.

The course is owned and operated by the Lopesan Hotel Group who took a piece of land and made some substantial changes to the landscape, an area formerly without any environmental value has now become an area of beauty when more than 1,100 palm trees of different species were planted.

The course has two distinct nines the more compact front nine is further inland, with the back nine looping around a future development site. Water comes into play on several holes on the front nine most notably on two of the three short holes. The back nine is where the views from the cliffs come into their own and none more so than on the par 3, 12th and the short par 4, 16th which run along the edge of the cliffs.

My tips to Win:

I am going to stick with Sam Horsfield 25/1 – with UniBet – after tipping him at last weeks Austria Golf Open where he had a Top 15 finish. Sam never really got going until the last two days of the event and he will take a lot of confidence from his five birdie start to his final round – which he added another five too during the rest of the round – that see him climb the leaderboard and produce his third Top 15 in his last three starts on the European Tour.

If local knowledge becomes a factor this week then the host Rafa Cabrera Bello 28/1 – with WilliamHill – wins this event hands down, but I think local boy Rafa who grew up learning the game and is now a resident here at Lopesan Meloneras Golf will need a bit more than local knowledge if he is to become champion this week. Sometimes expectations of home fans can inspire or overwhelm you, I think they will inspire Cabrera Bello this week.

Each -way tips:

A Top 5 finish at the weekend should see Garrick Higgo 40/1 – with UniBet – coming into this week full of confidence and I do feel that his missed cut at the second weeks event in Kenya, which followed two Top 20 finishes was just a blip and I don’t think it’s going to be long before we see the South African picking up his first European Tour win.

It looks like Marcus Armitage 45/1 – with SportingBet – has unlocked something in his golf game with two Top 10 finishes in his last two starts. Marcus regained his European Tour card for 2020 and finished 3rd at the South African Open hosted by the City of Johannesburg in his third start of the season and went on to have four more Top 10 finishes last year after the restart.

I am guessing the reason Romain Langasque 45/1 – with UniBet – didn’t compete at last weeks Austrian Golf Open was because he didn’t fancy the cold weather and decided to wait until the tour moved to Spain for its three week stint on the Canary Islands! Romain had a Top 5 and Top 30 finish in the Kenya events and will need to start winning a few tournaments if he wants to put himself in the frame for the Ryder Cup team.

Outside tip:

It has certainly not been the start to the year that Jorge Campillo 100/1 – with BefFair – would have been looking for with four missed cuts from his five starts, but the Spaniard is too good a player and I feel playing on home soil over the next coupe of weeks is only going to inspire him to produce his best golf and I think these could prove to be good odds.

Longer odds tip:

Try Nacho Elvira 200/1 – with SkyBet

As always good luck
