With beautiful weather all year-round, it is no wonder that so many golf enthusiasts regularly choose Greece as their golfing destination of choice. But with so many luscious greens to choose from, we’ve handpicked the best courses that will test any player’s golfing ability. Here are the top 4…
1. Corfu Golf Club
Nestled in the Ropa Valley, the course at the Corfu Golf Club, bookable through Golf Kings, makes use of a combination of natural and man-made hazards and is one of the trickiest in the list. The recently renovated 18-hole course, designed around the picturesque Nafsika River, boasts high hills, glistening lakes and flowing streams that make this course anything but simple. This course guarantees variety at every hole, putting every golfer’s ability to the test.
2. Crete Golf Club
Located on the hills of Hersonissos, the mountainous terrain of the Crete Golf Club makes it a challenging course for golfers of all abilities. The course is the only 18-hole golf course in Crete and is surprisingly short, spanning just 6430 yards. However, the rocks and ravines that feature on this course compensate for its length, making it a true test of any golfer’s accuracy. Whilst golfing, you can even take in breath-taking views of the mountains of Crete and the inviting Aegean Sea.
3. Costa Navarino
The two 18-hole courses available at the Costa Navarino golf club in Messenia are two of the best that Greece has to offer. The expansive Dunes course is a 71-par course that offers players majestic views of the nearby river and sea. Slightly easier than the Dunes course, the Bay course is set in lush green hills and is decorated with traditional Greek olive trees. From both courses, you can enjoy spectacular Greek sunsets after a long day of golfing.
4. Porto Carras
The popularity of the Porto Carras golf course is continually growing. Recently upgraded from a 9-hole to an 18-hole course, the golf club is also in the process of developing two additional courses. The existing Olive course will appeal to players of all abilities and the course’s picturesque location is sure to be admired.
Head to any of these top Greek golf courses and be sure to put your golf skills to the test.
