Greece

Jetting off to sunny Greece has long been a favoured option for chilly Northern Europeans, and with the advent of some first class championship golf courses, the Greek Islands in particular are of increased interest to travelling golfers.

Crete is synonymous with beach holidays, offering the relaxed atmosphere, idyllic beaches and laid back leisure that are so attractive.

The island is also home to excellent golf courses, and is emerging as excellent alternatives for mixed parties including non-golfers.

Water sports, delightful hotels and fresh seafood are among the highlights of an escape to the Greek isles, which are now a golf holiday destination of international class.

The Dunes Course, the first signature-designed golf course in Greece. Open since May 2010, the impressive seaside Dunes Course is the first signature golf course in Greece, designed by two-time US Masters Champion and former Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design. This championship course, set in a diverse natural landscape beside The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort and The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, offers spectacular sea and river views and incorporates some links-style features in areas closest to the sea. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while some holes run along a small river – the Sellas – which meanders through the site. Combined with large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep-faced pot bunkers, the links element of the course adds to its unique style and playability.

A World-Class Golf Course in Greece

The Dunes Course has been designed to provide an exciting challenge for all golfers. Each of the 18 holes has multiple sets of tees to allow players to select the course length that best suits their game. The par-71 course measures 6,581 yards from the back tees. Generously wide fairways and large greens make good targets that will be appreciated by golfers. Much of the course has been crafted to reflect the rugged outlines of the distant mountains. As you move further inland, the course unfolds, its character softening to fit with the surroundings of olive and citrus groves. In season, players are welcome to sample the ripe fruit from the trees around the course at their leisure.

A Golfer’s Paradise in Greece

Golfers of all levels can benefit from the professional tuition offered by The Navarino Golf Academy, make use of the outstanding golf facilities, benefit from a wide array of golf packages with everything from shoes and buggies to full sets of golf clubs available for hire, and experience the sheer joy of golfing in Greece. Flame Restaurant, located in The Dunes Club House, specialises in expertly cooked steak dishes prepared from finest quality locally sourced meat, complemented by the freshest ingredients, together with herbs and vegetables from the restaurant’s own gardens.

Open since October 2011, the 18-hole, 70 par seaside Bay Course at Navarino Bay, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, provides both a fun experience and a challenging test for golfers of all levels. Just a few minutes from Navarino Dunes, at the Navarino Bay development, the Bay Course offers an alternative set of challenges and choices in a quite different setting.

With the majority of tees offering sublime sea views and two holes playing along the historic Bay of Navarino, the course plays a little shorter than The Dunes Course at 5,422 metres from the back tees and meanders through three distinct natural landscapes. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round.

Seaside

Golfers experience four different Seaside greens framed by a scenic backdrop of the tranquil waters of the Bay of Navarino. The bay’s natural beauty is showcased on hole #4, a short and strategic par 4 directly fronting the bay with the town of Pylos visible in the background. This challenging hole offers tremendous visual appeal.

Canyon

On The Bay Course’s numerous Canyon holes, golfers play from elevated tees and pursue their drives into and through box canyons as the course switches inland from the sea. These holes feel more intimate than the Seaside holes and offer very different views and a greater variety of strategic options.

Grove

More than 1,000 mature olive trees – some more than 500 years old – were saved during the construction of the course and transplanted along the perimeter. The Grove holes meander through this treed landscape, providing distinctive mountain views in striking contrast to the Seaside and Canyon holes.

The golf course plays from a variety of lengths designed to challenge golfers of various skill levels. Crafted across natural terrain, the layout offers panoramic seaside and mountain views in addition to having several holes that play directly along the sea, providing an unforgettable golfing experience. Moreover, players are welcome to sample the ripe fruit from the trees around the course at their leisure.
